If you want to create an E-book fast, or to consistently create content, one of the most important things to do every day is to create some kind of content. If you want to be a professional writer, you have to treat writing as your job. This applies to writing an E-book or having a popular blog or online business.
It does not matter if you are writing a book, publishing online, writing a Blog, or setting up some type of coaching or subscription website. You need to produce steady material for your readers. If you don’t produce this fresh content, they will go elsewhere. By the same reasoning, what you are writing needs to be good and have value. A key point to keep in mind is that you are trying to solve a reader’s problem. If you can offer a solution to a reader the reader will continue to come back because they know they will get value from your writing.
The content you produce daily does not always have to be a very long piece of writing or work. It could be a video or audio recording you produce that is short.. Working on content daily doesn’t mean you have to immediately rush to publication. In fact, I would suggest that you do not rush to publication but rather produce content every day that can be edited and reworked as needed. In this way you can work on short pieces that have the same subject or the same theme, and then cut them together into a much longer piece for an article or a book.
If you don’t have time to write a big piece, or you’re not feeling like it, you can always write an outline or notes that can be turned into something later. The key here is that you’re producing something everyday and getting into the habit of doing it.
Producing quality work is the first step in becoming a professional writer or blogger. If you can learn the techniques and skills required you can be successful. Readers and consumers are starved for good content. They want solutions to problems. If you can provide them solutions on a regular basis, they will be happy. In fact, they will pay for the solutions. Of course, you’re content may not always be something you want to sell, s but rather a way to get your name or message out. Another benefit to producing content daily is that the more you produce content of one form or another, the better you are at producing quality content.
It is not uncommon for someone who writes professionally to produce 5000 – 10000 good words of content a day. It may seem like a lot when you were starting out, but there are many techniques a writer can use to increase their productivity. If you are serious about writing then you have to come up with an approach that works for you.
One approach I have found useful is to write a good title for the content you want to produce, Take some time with this step and make sure the title is specific and conveys what the content is really about. For instance, a good title for a piece of content might be, “Creating Content Everyday” or “How to Increase Writing Productivity Ten-Fold”, while a title like “Writing More” or “Content Production” does not capture the key idea of daily production of content. Getting the title of a piece of content right is a key part of the content itself. The title should inform the writing process and enhance the writing itself. A poor title leaves the reader guessing what the content is about.
Once you have a good title–and you may end up modifying the title as you go along–you can mindmap or brainstorm some key points you want to get into your content. Depending on how much time you have to devote to your content production session, your pre-work on mindmapping or brainstorming may only take a few minutes or could be a session in and of itself.
One key point to consider is how well you know the topic you will be writing about. If you know the topic well, if it is something you have written about before, or are a true expert in, your planning session and outline may be bare bones and brief. Also, what kind of content you are producing is a driver in how thorough your preparation will need to be. For instance, you may do less preparation for a 300 word blog post, than you will do for a video-course or book you are working on. Finally, the more familiar you are with producing this particular type of content, the faster it will be. When you learn something new, you are always slower than when you have become an expert and have gone through the creation process numerous times.
To produce an E-book fast, you need a good title that clearly gives you and your reader a roadmap of what you are delivering. Then, make a solid outline that includes all the main points you are trying to get across. Under each main point, place yourself in your reader’s position and think of all the possible questions they might have about the topic. Then, systematically do some research and make notes on the answers to these questions. Finally, sit down with your outline and write a rough draft from start to finish.
Take a good break and then go back with fresh eyes and edit your work. Remember, most readers want a solution to a problem. A good E-book does not have to be lengthy or repetitive, it just needs to get the reader the information they are looking for.
