Need help! bonuses to be included in a limited quantity book

hi, can someone please help me with this question?

I already have the book for free to view on my website or to be download in .pdf format but I also want to make some money. Therefore I will be self-publishing my book with the limited quantity of only 3,000-4,000. My audience will be at least 5 million to 10 million or more so I am not doing it just for money but to make a name for myself and someone can just rewrite what i wrote and give it or free so it is best I do it first.

Since I already have the book for free for readers to view, I want to know what should I include as a bonus to intice readers to also pre-order it. I will be selling it for $30-$35 plus shipping. It will be 150 pg. long and it is about something no one ever wrote it before. I am thinking of adding cheap stuff that i can buy in bulk or wholesale (keychain, posters, custom cds). Also, every book will be signed by me.

Also, can you tell me authors that have done already what I am trying to do and what bonuses they included in the published limited version of their book which was also available for free online?

that's all.

will appreciate any advice:)

Anyone has any other ideas?

Also, I forgot to inform that I won't be buying the books prior to how many people will buy it because they will be pre-ordering it. That is why, I will say "I have limited quantity" and whatever the amount is sold (1,000 etc) within a few weeks, I will purchase that in bulk from self-publishing services.

Well I can tell you from the get go that I wouldn't pay such an amount of money for a self published book and certainly wouldn't do it when the book is available online for free. I'm sorry but as an author myself I can tell you right now to quit dreaming.

well my book is unique. I am writing about no one EVER wrote about and a discovery no one knows. (like einstein theory of relativity which was never heard before). So won't that make A HUGE DIFFERENCE?

If it actually was that unique, and/or well written why do you self-publish.
