Creating your own ebook – It’s a very good idea.

by Ade on September 28, 2012

I read today on a blog that to really create a realistic online business and make a living, you need about 15 – 24 months of working about 10hrs a day. I can almost agree with that because as you can see, I am yet to start making money regularly on this website or even more on my other websites. I must confess however that in the past month I have not been able to invest up to 2 hrs daily on this project. Nevertheless I have spent an average of 1 hr daily working on it and to tell you the truth I can hardly see much improvement.

Writing an Ebook – I have completed my first ebook and I am happy to announce that I have also sold a few copies of it. There are a few things that one must consider when writing an ebook. In this blog I will highlight some of the issues that I had to consider while writing my ebook:

  • What is the question you are answering or the problem that you are solving
  • How detailed do you want to go or how many pages will be adequate
  • Does it matter if others have written someting about this topic earlier
  • How much do I sell the ebook?
  • How do you write a good sales copy that will have a high conversion rate?

These are questions that I had to deal with as I wrote my ebook. The book was sold for $9.89 and I was able to add some support and with that I have raised the price of the book because I will be supporting my clients via email. The Price of the package is now $79.89. I am yet to sell a premium package. I am still in the process of learning how to write a good sales pitch.

My Advice

  • Work everyday to write your own ebook
  • Make sure you answer a pressing question in your ebook.
  • Find a way to place the right cost on ebook.
  • If you find any activity that will help enrich the book, go for it.
  • Learn a few tricks about Pdfs.
  • It takes a lot of time so start early.

Another Ebook

I am in the process of writing an ebook for this blog. I find that many friends of mine are asking me questions about the blog. I have decided to put some of the anwers in an ebook and just send it whoever asks the same question.
