Why write an eBook?

You want ongoing, lifelong multiple streams of income. You want to raise your credibility and trust ratings with clients or customers. You want to get your message out so the world can be a better place.

Yet, You want to spend only a little time on it. (Would you be willing to spend 4 hours a week?) You want to get it out fast (Would 4-8 weeks be OK?) You want to market online at a low-cost investment. And, for some of you, you are ready to be innovative and even take a small risk to get your eBook read by millions, rather than hundreds!

Where are you now?

You have the idea for your eBook; you have a lot of ideas! Take a moment and decide which one you are most passionate about now and will be for the next year. Focus on one great idea, then add others after you finish and market the first book you know will work.

You have your eBook well on its way, but aren't finished. You need advice on the next step--how to get it done, what's needed to publish (not much!), and how to distribute it.

Who Should Write an eBook?

- If you are ready to invest a little to reap a great deal. - If you are a business person who want to serve a wider community. - If you have a unique message you want to share with the world -If are willing to write, publish yourself, and sell 2 years ahead of the time with traditional publishing - If you want to create active, lifelong streams of income -If you want to promote yourself, service or products

How to Get There.(Build and Sell your eBook at the same time)

Every part of your book can be a sales tool. When you include the essential "Nine Hot-Selling Points" before you write chapter one, you'll sell more books than you ever dreamed of! Because when you know your preferred audience, your book's benefits, its thesis and more, you write a focused, compelling book that your readers will love.

3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

  1. Write for your one preferred audience. Not everyone wants
    your book. Find out what audience wants/needs your book?
    What problems does your book solve for them? Create an
    audience profile and keep your audience's picture in front of you as you write. Ask yourself, is my topic narrow enough? The
    Chicken Soup For The Teenager, For The Prisoner, and other
    specific groups sold far more copies than the original Chicken
    Soup.

  2. Write a sizzling book title including benefits. You have eight
    seconds to hook your potential buyer. While an eBook cover
    doesn't need fancy graphics you will want to create one that can
    be printed both in color and black and white. It must be easy to
    see and read. Your title and cover should compel your audience
    to buy.

  3. Write a thirty-second "tell and sell." You only have a few
    seconds to impress your potential buyer. Include your title, a few benefits, and the audience. Use sound bites to grab attention.-Write, Finish, and Publish your eBook Fast to Pull OnlineSales- shows professionals how to shortcut each step of writing,publishing, and promoting a saleable eBook.

    Include a sound bite that grabs attention such as "It will do morefor you than instant cappuccino." You may also want to compareyour book to a successful one such as "How to Write an eBook Fast!" is the Chapter Blueprint companion to Dan Poynter's "Self-Publishing Manual.."

  4. Write your sales letter before you write your book. This
    important sales tool gives the benefits your potential buyers want.Include compelling ad copy, benefits, testimonials, and a small blurb about you, the author. If your potential buyer likes it, they will buy on the spot.

  5. Write your eBook's introduction. Include the problem your
    audience has, why you wrote the book, and its purpose. In a few
    paragraphs include more specific benefits, and how you will
    present it (format). Keep it under a page. Your introduction will help you write your sales letter.

  6. Create a table of contents. Each chapter should have a title,
    preferably a catchy one. If your reader can't understand the
    chapter title, then annotate it. Add some benefits or a sub title. Added to the first chapter called "Why Write an eBook! was this partial list of benefits: Ongoing lifelong multiple streams of income, credibility as the expert, products sell easily online, buyers are more targeted and hence you create more profit.

  7. Reach out to opinion molders. After an initial contact of asking
    for feedback, resend them the same chapter and the table of
    contents of your book. Ask for a testimonial then. These influential contacts' testimonials will help promote your eBook
    online and offline.

    Design every part of your eBook to be a sales tool and a beacon that brings out your best: writing--compelling, understandable, organized, and enjoyable. Knowing the "Essential Hot Selling Points before you write your book will bring you thousands, even hundreds of thousands of customer contacts.
