Learning how to create an eBook is not very hard. First of all, what exactly is an ebook? It’s an electronic book that you download to your computer. You can read it directly from your computer or print it out. The great thing about ebooks is…you don’t have to wait for them to be shipped. You receive them instantly. And people LOVE instant information!
One of the best things about creating an eBook is, you can create an eBook for next to nothing and sell it for 100% profit!
Some people wonder why anyone would pay for an eBook when there’s already free information out there. Here’s the thing, people pay for convenience. Buying an eBook is very convenient! You don’t have to leave the house to buy an ebook. I would rather by an eBook that has all the information right at my finger tips then going and looking all over for it. Many people feel the same way.
Here are five simple steps you can follow to make your ebook.
1. Target Your Audience
The first step in learning how to create an eBook is to target your audience. Who is your niche? Who is your market? Before you create an eBook you need to answer these questions.
For some people, deciding what to write is the hard part, but it doesn’t have to be. Think about hobbies, both your own and others, as well as what problems other people have. What do you know that could help people solve problems? People are always looking for advice on how to make money and how to save money. Could you write a guide telling them how to make money from their hobbies?
2.Research and Plan
Chances are, you won’t be able to sit down and create an eBook from the top of your head. Even if it’s a topic you’re familiar with, you’ll want to research and plan before you get started. One simple way to do this is to write down the questions that your market has about the subject. You might want to read forums where they hang out and read the same magazines they read.
3. Write Your eBook
Now that you have your questions, you can write your ebook. It doesn’t matter whether or not you consider yourself a great writer. You do not have to write 100-plus pages and you don’t need to write perfect prose. Simply answer the questions the same way you would if you were writing a letter with advice to your friend. Let your personality shine through.
If you aren’t an expert in the subject, consider finding someone who is and interview them for your guide. This is a great way to create an eBook on any subject.
4.Convert to PDF
Now that you have your eBook written, let a few friends read it. Proofread it, but don’t worry about catching every mistake. Even published books may have errors.
Once you’re happy with the product, it’s time to convert it into PDF. There are some programs that will do this free with just a click of the button. One choice you have is Open Office, which is a free program similar to Microsoft Office. You can convert Open Office writer documents into PDFs in one step.
5. Upload it on Your Site
Whether you plan to sell your eBook or give it away for free, you need to upload it onto your website so that you can share it with others. You’ll need a website host an FTP program. There are many hosts to choose from, and some cost less than $10 a month. A free FTP program that you can use to upload your eBook onto your site is FileZilla.
If you follow these five simple steps, you can create an eBook in very little time. Soon these steps will become second nature as you create your ebooks.
