Ebooks will help you to maximise your impact and make a difference to a larger audience.
4-MAKE PASSIVE INCOME
Ebooks are a great way to earn passive income. You can create an ebook once at little to no cost and then keep selling it for as long as you want.
HOW TO COME UP WITH THE PERFECT EBOOK IDEA
You can only earn money from your ebook if you have a plan.If your topic has nothing to do with your niche then you will only confuse your audience. If you only write on a topic which you think will sell well but does not solve any of your reader’s problems then your ebook sales will flop. Here are some ways that you can chose the perfect ebook idea:
ASK YOUR AUDIENCE
The most simplest thing would be to ask your audience if they like your idea as you are making it for them. You can ask your audience to take a short survey. You can use a free survey like Survey Monkey or Typeform.
THINK ABOUT YOUR WHY
Before you start writing your ebook or even plan it out you have to first get clear on your why.
THINK ABOUT YOUR AUDIENCE
Your audience is coming to you to solve a specific problem. You can present the solution to their problem in the form of an ebook.
HOW TO QUICKLY WRITE YOUR EBOOK
Depending on your topic your ebook can range anywhere from 5000 words to even 30000. You can write an ebook in 30 days without even sacrificing the quality. Here are some simple steps to write your ebook.
STEP1:GATHER YOUR EXISTING CONTENT
There are chances that you have already written about your ebook topic , or hosted webinars about it , or already created a course about it. If you have your topic in video format you can trancribe it to use in your ebook. You can save all of your content in one place by using a service like Evernote
STEP2:OUTLINE YOUR EBOOK
Unlike your already made content your ebook should have a better narrative flow. It should be easy to consume and should take people from their problem to their solution.
When you are writing your ebook you should also see it as a reader if it is easy for you to read and understand.
You should write down and compile your ideas and make sure you know what to write in each chapter. You can use a free service like Evernote to do this.
STEP3:WRITE YOUR EBOOK
You can now start compiling you content into a meaningful form. You ahould make sure that your ebook has a flow otherwise it will just be a bunch of essays.You can first create a draft then fo forward from that point. I recommend setting down an hour or two to fo this.
STEP4: EDIT YOUR EBOOK
After writing your ebook you should edit it. There are a few ways you can do this
- Hire a proofreader,copy editor or an editor( PS you can also hire me for proofreading services. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for this)
