They say the best way to making money on the Internet, is to create your own Ebook. Wow! That’s a simple statement, but – do you know what is involved. I’ll try to explain what I have learned and I am learning while I’m creating my own Ebook.
If you know what you want to create, you’ve already on your way. But, if you’re not sure what information you have stored in your years of living – well, it can be difficult.
I’ve found the best way to brainstorm is to write your ideas, experiences and knowledge down on a piece of paper – then do research to determine what people are looking for on the net.
To determine if your product, idea, or info-knowledge will fly you must do research. Go to Wordtracker or Overture and see how many times people in the month were looking for what you want to write about.
This will give you an idea if it is a viable product. Also do a straight search in Google and Yahoo for your keywords, and see what turns up. Investigate some of the sites, you may be surprised that you have a completely slant on the information you want to present in an E-book – which is a good thing.
If you think your ebook may fly, then it is time to write. Create it in html or a txt format, using Word or Notepad. Then download Gymnast – it’s free (you can find it on my site -- go to the tools sections, and look under Promote tool.
This will create your ebook. But – before you pull it into a PDF, be sure to proofread your material.
Next, you can create an Ebook cover. Yes, I know, you’re on a tight budget, so . . .
look to OnlineWebCreations.com -- they have some free ebook covers that you can choose from, and an on-line tool in which you can add the title of the book onto the Ebook cover.
If you don’t find these free ebook covers to your liking then you can purchase software to create your own ebook cover or pay someone else to do it for you. Once you have your ebook completed, it is time to get it out to the masses.
I would suggest submitting your ebook to Clickbank or Payloadz. However, if this is your first ebook, I would strongly suggest that you give Payloadz a closer look. From my own research – it is reasonable, you upload your ebook to their server (which eliminates your need to make your ebook available to the customer), and the payment goes through your Paypal account.
As to promotion, I will leave that to you to research.
