Over the past 5 years or so, eBooks have been selling like hotcakes. Interestingly, if you study the eBook market, you will realize that a majority of websites, or even individuals who sell eBooks, may not be great writers themselves. Don't let that fear stop you from writing the best-selling eBook in you! You don't have to be a great writer to publish a great eBook.
Professional writers can be hired at very reasonable costs to write an e-book. There are also a number of writing mentors or coaches out there who will assist you in that part of the process if need be. [You can find an excellent writing coach in Audrey at www.writershelper.com.]
What’s important is for you to bring in your own knowledge, passion, or belief in your subject. That’s what makes writing sell in the first place. Anyone can be taught how to put the words down; it’s what is being said that is important.
Writing the book yourself, even without prior experience, is certainly an option. If you have the knowledge, passion and belief in your subject, you can write your own eBook. Even the best professional writers have mentors, coaches and editors.
Here are a few guidelines and tips for getting started writing your first (or next) eBook.
The First Few Steps To Your First eBook
eBooks deliver complete, instantly available, expert knowledge in a single, easily-handled package. Creating an eBook may not require prior experience, but it certainly requires careful planning and considerable groundwork.
You create eBooks with a focus of building an ongoing, lifelong relationship with your reader that will result in multiple streams of income. In addition, eBooks should be created with the aim of raising your credibility and trust ratings with clients or customers.
Selling eBooks consists of three phases:
1) Researching and developing an idea for the book
2) Writing the eBook
3) Marketing the eBook
In this article, we’re going to focus on how to research and find a profitable idea to write about.
Research Tips For Finding A Profitable eBook Topic
The Internet is primarily used to communicate, entertain, educate and research. It is thus no wonder that information-intensive eBooks are the most popular online products at present.
How do you decide on a subject for your eBook?
The simple answer is research, research, and more research.
Your main objective is to write about a subject that has long-term appeal. After all, you would like to generate as much profit with your eBook as possible, wouldn't you? It’s necessary that your subject is one which will not become outdated in a few months after you write it – otherwise it’s going to need continually updating.
The best way to choose a topic is to figure out what people look for.
This can be done by analyzing top searches at Search Engines. Many search engines, as well as other popular portals such as Search Terms, keep track of the most popular searches over a period. There are also many other tools such the Keyword Live Software from Analog X that monitors top search terms at major Search Engines. You can use these lists to figure out the most popular subjects.
The next step, after you've made your list of most popular subjects, is to carefully analyze some of those most popular subjects. You can use popular keyword search tools such as WordTracker or Overture’s Search Term Tool to determine popular search terms similar or relevant to the ones you have listed.
This will give you a much more specific and focused list to work from. However, deciding to write an eBook based on a popular search term may not necessarily be a very smart idea. The key is to establish the exact need of the people you are targeting.
There may be many eBooks that target the same subject. However, most of them would probably be lacking in some aspect of the subject. Unless your eBook fills this void, it probably will not be the success you would like it to be.
Creating the eBook without any writing experience is not difficult. With a little bit of research and learning, you can create an eBook that is workable.
The toughest part is to come up with a killer idea. After all, eBooks are all about ideas — the better your idea, the higher your sales.
