Why Write An Ebook

Why Write an​ eBook?
It's not true that everything that has been said has
already been written .​
Since that unfortunate axiom
came into use, the whole universe has changed.
Technology has changed, ideas have changed, and the
mindsets of​ entire nations have changed.
The fact is​ that this is​ the perfect time to​ write an
ebook .​
What the publishing industry needs are people
who can tap into the world as​ it​ is​ today - innovative
thinkers who can make the leap into the new millennium
and figure out how to​ solve old problems in​ a​ new way.
Ebooks are a​ new and powerful tool for original
thinkers with fresh ideas to​ disseminate information
to the millions of​ people who are struggling to​ figure
out how to​ do a​ plethora of​ different things.
Let's say you already have a​ brilliant idea, and the
knowledge to​ back it​ up that will enable you to​ write
an exceptional ebook .​
You may be sitting at​ your
computer staring at​ a​ blank screen wondering, Why?
Why should I​ go through all the trouble of​ writing my
ebook when it's so impossible to​ get anything
published these days?
Well, let me assure you that publishing an​ ebook is
entirely different than publishing a​ book in​ print.
Let's look at​ the specifics of​ how the print and cyber
publishing industry differ, and the many reasons why
you should take the plunge and get your fingers
tapping across those keyboards!
Submitting a​ print book to​ conventional publishing
houses or​ to​ agents is​ similar to​ wearing a​ hair shirt
24/7 .​
No matter how good your book actually is, or​ how
many critique services and mentor writers have told
you that you've got what it​ takes, your submitted
manuscript keeps coming back to​ you as​ if​ it​ is​ a
boomerang instead of​ a​ valuable mine of​ information.
Perhaps, in​ desperation, you've checked out
self-publishing and found out just how expensive a
venture it​ can be .​
Most vanity presses require
minimal print runs of​ at​ least 500 copies, and even
that amount will cost you thousands of​ dollars .​
presses' minimal run starts at​ 1,000 to​ 2,000 copies.
And that's just for the printing and binding .​
Add in
distribution, shipping, and promotional costs and -
well, you do the math .​
Even if​ you wanted to​ go this
route, you may not have that kind of​ money to​ risk.
Let's say you already have an​ Internet business with a
quality website and a​ quality product .​
An ebook is​ one
of the most powerful ways to​ promote your business
while educating people with the knowledge you already
possess as​ a​ business owner of​ a​ specific product or
For example, let's say that you've spent the last
twenty-five years growing and training bonsai trees,
and now you're ready to​ share your knowledge and
experience .​
An ebook is​ the perfect way to​ reach the
largest audience of​ bonsai enthusiasts.
Ebooks will not only promote your business - they will
help you make a​ name for yourself and your company,
and establish you as​ an​ expert in​ your field .​
You may
even find that you have enough to​ say to​ warrant a
series of​ ebooks .​
Specific businesses are complicated
and often require the different aspects to​ be divided
in order for the reader to​ get the full story.
Perhaps your goals are more finely tuned in​ terms of
the ebook scene .​
You may want to​ build a​ whole
business around writing and publishing ebooks.
Essentially, you want to​ start an​ e-business .​
You are
thinking of​ setting up a​ website to​ promote and market
your ebooks .​
Maybe you're even thinking of​ producing
an ezine.
One of​ the most prevalent reasons people read ebooks
is to​ find information about how to​ turn their
Internet businesses into a​ profit-making machine .​
these people are looking to​ the writers of​ ebooks to
provide them with new ideas and strategies because
writers of​ ebooks are usually people who understand
the new cyberspace world we now live in .​
Ebook writers
are experts in​ Internet marketing campaigns and the
strategies of​ promoting and distributing ebooks .​
cyberspace community needs its ebooks to​ be successful
so that more and more ebooks will be written.
You may want to​ create affiliate programs that will
also market your ebook .​
Affiliates can be people or
businesses worldwide that will all be working to​ sell
your ebooks .​
Think about this? Do you see a​ formula
for success here?
Figure out what your subject matter is, and then
narrow it​ down .​
Your goal is​ to​ aim for specificity.
Research what's out there already, and try to​ find a
void that your ebook might fill.
What about an​ ebook about a​ wedding cake business? Or
an ebook about caring for elderly pets? How about the
fine points of​ collecting ancient pottery?
You don't have to​ have three masters degrees to​ write
about your subject .​
People need advice that is​ easy to
read and easily understood .​
Parents need advice for
dealing with their teenagers .​
College students need to
learn good study skills - quickly .​
The possibilities
are endless.
After you've writtten your ebook
Getting your ebook out is​ going to​ be your focus once
you've finished writing it, just as​ it​ is​ with print
books .​
People will hesitate to​ buy any book from an
author they've never heard of .​
Wouldn't you?
The answer is​ simple: give it​ away! You will see
profits in​ the form of​ promoting your own business and
getting your name out .​
You will find affiliates who
will ask you to​ place their links within your ebook,
and these affiliates will in​ turn go out and make your
name known .​
Almost every single famous ebook author
has started out this way.
Another powerful tool to​ attract people to​ your ebook
is to​ make it​ interactive .​
Invent something for them
to do within the book rather than just producing pages
that contain static text .​
Let your readers fill out
questionnaires, forms, even crossword puzzles geared
to testing their knowledge on a​ particular subject.
Have your readers hit a​ link that will allow them to
recommend your book to​ their friends and associates.
Or include an​ actual order form so at​ the end of​ their
reading journey, they can eagerly buy your product.
When people interact with books, they become a​ part of
the world of​ that book .​
The fact is​ just as​ true for
books in​ print as​ it​ is​ for ebooks.
That's why ebooks are so essential .​
Not only do they
provide a​ forum for people to​ learn and make sense of
their own thoughts, but they can also serve to​ promote
your business at​ the same time.
