So, you have a great idea for an eBook, and you want to market it. It is very easy to do these days, and can bring in some money through Internet marketing. Here are some tips in getting your eBook ready, and on the market.
Choosing the Topic
It is always easiest to write about things that you really like. This means that, unless you are a writer, that your writing will naturally be more interesting if you write about things you are familiar with like a hobby or some sport, or electronics, or business, or Internet marketing, etc. Then, you will want to look and see if there are people interested in that kind of an eBook. You can check this out by seeing what keywords are being used, or if you have a mailing list you can send them a product survey.
Write the Book
Make your eBook stand out by seeing what is on the market about that subject, and then write yours a little different to make it stand out. Also, make sure it is original. If you copy what someone else has done, it can get you in serious trouble. Stay away from that. Make a lot of white space by using subtitles (like in this article), bulleted points, numbered points, and short paragraphs. And unless, you are writing a technical manual, write using rather simple words, thus producing clarity for most people.
Format Your Book
Put your eBook together with your word processor. Make sure you have an artful cover, a copyright, your name, a table of contents that is accurate, and use a good size font, like 11 pt is good, but 12 pt may be better. Do a spell check on the book, and if you are using any URL’s, do a double check on them for accuracy.
Once all this is done, you are ready to turn it into an eBook. There are two ways to do this. One way is to send it by email to an online company, and you pay them to format your book for you. The cost is low, and they can give you good quality. Usually this will be made into a .PDF format. Another way to turn it into an eBook is to buy a software program, and do it yourself. This way also works but it is rather expensive.
Market your eBook
For a small fee you can give your eBook to Clickbank, and they will set it up for you, and sell it, too. This will allow affiliates to sign up and sell your book for you. You control all the rights, and you put it on your Internet marketing website. They just collect the funds and will get a percentage off the purchase price. Clickbank handles a lot of eBooks and they do a rather good job. Of course, being into Internet marketing, you may want to do it yourself.
