Making Money Online With EBooks
Making Money Online With EBooks
As a society we have instant access to information. It has gotten to the point of information overload. If you do a Google search for the word “money” you will get 943,000,000 results (give or take). This makes it almost impossible to find just what you are looking for.
Much of the information is not very good. Most of it is just fluff thrown up on a homemade website full of grammar and contextual errors. You might be thinking that this is bad news but it is actually very good news for you.
What makes this good news is you are going to do something about it. You are going to contribute to the amount of information online. The major difference is that you are going to create a document that is chock full of pure content. This will be content that people are looking for. How are you going to do this, you are going to create your own eBook.
I can hear the roars now “Rob I can’t write a book”. Actually you can do it. Keep in mind you do not need to be a journalist to write a book. Here is what you do need:
– A desire to see the job through
– Deep knowledge of a topic
– A plan to get it done
Writing an eBook is actually fairly simple, the number one secret to success is to write about something that you know. I am constantly writing articles, blog posts, chapters for my book and short stories that focus on money and finances but you can write on anything that you know that you could be considered an expert.
The best way to determine what to write about is to sit down with a pad and brainstorm. Write down everything that you have an interest in, what you do as a job, your hobbies. Don’t hold back here, just get it on paper, and don’t think about it at this point.
Now for the making money part. Once you have written your eBook you will want to make some money with it. You put in your blood, sweat and tears into this masterpiece and it is finally time to make some money by selling your work of art.
There are two main areas to focus on for selling your eBook. First are the online auction sites such as eBay. Go to eBay and search for eBook and look over the advertisements people already have posted there. This will get the juices flowing on how to list your produce for sale. Next go to Google and search for eBook directories and you can list your book there. Some sites will charge you but that is ok because of the exposure you will get by listing it on their site.
You might be asking the question “Rob why would I want to go through all of this work”? Well if you create an eBook that has value to it, people will want to buy it because it has meat to it and it solves a problem that your audience has. So you have done a good thing BUT let’s not forget the money part of this. Once the book is written the hard part is done. As you sell your book (let’s say for $10.00 each) and you sell just 10 copies a month, that is an additional $100.00 per month. Then you add a few more sites to sell your book from and you are now selling 15 books a month, well that is $150.00 a month of extra income.
Once you get to this point you will be thinking of your next eBook (your sequel as it were). It’s not hard but it will take a little time.
Strategy Based Profits TIP: – Brainstorm and pick a topic you are familiar with, spend time writing your eBook, and list it for sale. Sit back and let the sales come in.
