But I Can't Write An Ebook

 


Visitors: 291

You only have to do a quick search on Google to see how popular Ebooks have become: and the main reason is not the literary prowess of Ebook authors, but rather the ability to make your Ebook available to a niche market. The publishing costs of producing a paper-and-ink product are prohibitive - unless of course you're aiming for the large commercial market. But the costs of producing an Ebook are minimal. All you need is an idea, a computer, a little software and access to the internet.

But I have never written a book before.

This is the cry of many would-be authors. And they couldn't be more wrong. There are only 2 main points you need to keep in mind:

Firstly, write about something you know, something you are passionate about. And if you need to expand your ideas simply use the internet. A search on Google (or any other search engine) will bring back a plethora of resources for you to use. (This doesn't mean to say you should copy information verbatim - but taking the general flow of a particular article and translating it into your own particular style is quite acceptable).

Secondly, keep it simple. Don't try to write for a large audience - imagine you are talking to one person, having a conversation with a friend maybe, and try to convey your interest in a simple and straightforward style.

What Ebook software to use.

There was a time when all Ebooks were in PDF format. Although many Ebooks are still written using this format, a huge industry has grown up whose sole aim is to make Ebook creation as simple as possible. Personally, I use Ebook Generator which allows you to compile a series of web pages, along with all the associated links, into an Ebook with just a few clicks. But searching on the internet you can find a variety of software packages at reasonable prices that will do just the job you need. My advice is to start out small and only when you feel more self-assured (and perhaps have had a little commercoal success) should you invest in something a little more advanced.

Marketing.

This is probably the hardest part (especially if you have no experience in any kind of marketing). But again, a lot of the hard work has been done for you. Companies like clickbank are set up to allow you to distribute your Ebook without having to bother about the technical side of Ebook delivery. And most companies offer some sort of affiliate scheme which recruits other people to sell your Ebook for you (for a modest percentage of course). But since you don't have to pay anything until you actually make a sale, you've got nothing to lose.

So why not give it a try - you've got nothing to lose (except a little of your time) - and there's nothing more satsfying than making that first sale.
