Today is all about creating your ebook to sell – A really great idea to help people is by creating an ebook
So let’s get into this subject
Picking a subject – What do people want?
A good idea is to do some research online about what people are looking for? Are they looking for DIY, How to earn money, how to make a crib, How to gain more confidence? The list is endless
Millions of people are searching for how to, online every day and if you do some good research you will come up with a great idea. Brainstorm until you find something you are really interested in helping people with. When you write you have to know your subject and give a true representation in an engaging way to captivate your readers. So Important!!
Layout – How many words or pages
When you have chosen your subject matter, then you need to determine how long you want your book. If it is a novel it is going to be long, however, if it is a book to help people gain more knowledge in a particular field, then it may only have, say 20 pages- you will know once you get started
Organize before you start writing – Setting up topics
Always set up your topics in Bold, before you start writing as this will give you a more concise way of writing, instead of drifting in and out of different topics as you write. If you have paragraph topics you will write your 1st, then 2nd and so on giving the readers an easy to understand ebook which will sell easier as well. You will get much better reviews if your ebook is easy to read and written well.
Here is an example of what I mean
Title – How to make a wooden coffee table
About the author
Tools you will need
Wood products and extras
Plan to build from
The time it will take and why
Include pictures as this makes it more interesting and you can even insert links to take people back to your website for more details if need. This keeps people engaged in your business
Also a good idea is to have a program working alongside you to check off your grammar and spelling etc as you don’t want to write a book containing a lot of errors and believe me, it happens so often with writers who think they have edited their work and it is good to go, when the reality is, their book is full of errors. Not good at all
Grammarly is one of the best products I use when writing- I highly recommend you try it
Marketing – Selling
In order to write ebooks that sell you have to know who your market is going to be. Is it mainly men or women or teenagers, or children. What ages are you aiming at? Really important because when you are writing you are writing to this age group to work out who your market is going to be.
Some of my books have been quite a general market say age ranging 18- 55 for both men and women and this is great because there are millions of people in this age bracket as you can imagine.
Places to sell your book- Amazon, of course, Social media platforms, email lists you may have and if you have a website, this will be a very good place to sell your ebook if you have payment methods set up, which is easy to do, especially PayPal
Are you ready?

Here is an ebook for you to have a look through- Who knows it might inspire you
Many people including myself find it a real challenge to build a website let alone a fully functioning one.
I remember building one through WIX and it looked so cool and I thought- wow, this is so easy. what I didn’t know is how to actually get it recognized by Google, Yahoo, Bing, social media platforms and as for SEO. I had no clues to any of this. I thought my new cool website was on the internet and the world would visit. Hmm. Not so.
It just floated out there in cyberspace with not 1 visitor and I gave up because it was in the too hard basket for me.

Today, I thought I would cover a few things I find really important as a writer. whether it is a book, a blog, a poem or an article having the right tools are essential.
Choosing your subject
When choosing what to write about, always make sure you get to know your subject before you start writing.
Readers pick up very quickly whether you are authentic or just another one of those copy and paste kind of writers and will lose interest and trust
Research – Always a great place to start
Do your research and be as thorough as you can. This will give you insight into your subject matter and you will most definitely right more freely if you know what you are sharing with others. I have read 100’s of blogs and quite often, I think to myself. here we go, another piece of not very interesting c…. dare I say this.
Knowledge helps people and isn’t that what you are trying to achieve when you write something.
So please do your research and you will get a lot more people engaging with you.
Preparation for your Blog
Title – look for keywords
Content – work out at least 5 new content titles to write about
A conclusion to your blog – let the readers know your final thoughts on your blog and encourage them to make a comment or email you so you stay connected
Now get writing
Check your Grammar and spelling as there is nothing worse than a whole lot of errors when someone reads your blog. Again this makes people leave and move on to something better and as you know there are 1000s of places to look for a great blog on peoples interests
Tools you will need – Helpful stuff
A thesaurus could be helpful
Different writing styles
Spell and Grammar Check
I have done a lot of research on keywords and I find Jaaxy really great so take a look and see what you think
Also, I have found Grammarly to be the best tool I have used to check Grammar and spelling before I publish. Grammarly does all the hard work for you and it is brilliant. I highly recommend it to you as a blogger and writer
In conclusion, I know this post is short but I feel it is really important to all writers and bloggers to do it right and get more readers, after all, isn’t that why you write/blog.
