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?
