If you operate an online business, there are some very good reasons to write an eBook. Your own eBook will help to establish you as a recognized specialist in your field.
Another reason to consider writing your own eBook is the passive income it can generate for you. You do the work once and you can sell the eBook again and again on your website.
Here’s the template for writing an eBook.
Break It Down Into Workable Tasks
The hardest part of writing an eBook is the title, first and last sentence. Breaking it down makes each task seem smaller and more manageable. When you look at the whole project, it seems like an impossible task, but if you can get the project started, even if not perfectly, at least you have begun to get the words down.
Determine A Good Working Title
Titles help you to concentrate writing on your subject matter. Write down a few different titles and gradually you’ll find that one that starts to grow on you. Your title will guide you in predicting and responding to your readers’ questions.
Have A Good Reason For Your eBook
Be absolutely clear what issue you’re dealing with and how your eBook will fix that issue for your target audience. Make sure there’s good reason to write your eBook so that it helps your target audience.
Don’t Write For Everyone
Remember you’re writing an eBook for your target audience. It’s not possible to write an eBook that will be liked and read by everybody. Know the expected age range of your readers, their main interests and the socio-economic group they belong to.
Keep Your Writing Interesting
Generally, stories, testimonials, pictures, charts, guidance and tips will keep an audience reading the pages. Use sidebars on the page for quick, accessible information. This will help break up the density of the page.
Let Somebody Read It First
Before you release your eBook, get someone to read it first. They may spot something that you have missed. Also don’t forget to make backups of all your work. There’s nothing worse than having your eBook practically completed only to lose it if your computer crashes all of a sudden.
Write Down Your Objectives
The more you know your objective, the less complicated the actual writing will be. Are you writing an eBook to sell it as an information product on your website? Or do you want to offer it as a free gift to encourage people to opt in to your email list? The more you know about how you plan to publish it, the more you can write toward that objective.
