The next thing you must consider, is what format you would like to offer your EBook in. As with anything web based, more audiences you can reach better, so keep this in mind when creating your EBook. If you are able to offer it in multiple formats then by all means do so! Most EBooks are offered in Windows file format. Some are usable on Macintosh and some are made for Palm Pilot handheld computer.
With each of these mediums, there also comes a wide range of software options. The most widely used of course is simple HTML. When using HTML for an EBook, you must still keep things such as screen resolution and browser version in mind. Some people prefer to use Adobe PDF files for their EBook distribution, however be aware that this file format is very difficult to read for long periods of time on a computer screen. PDF files are most appropriate for EBooks that you intend to have reader actually print out and read on paper.
Palm Pilot Handheld computers also have a variety of software to choose from when it comes to reading an EBook. The good news however is that almost all of software for that platform can read an EBook regardless of software program it was created for. This makes Palm Pilot EBooks much more versatile in addition to being portable.
Once your EBook is ready for distribution, then you must market it. Marketing an EBook online is similiar to marketing anything else. Put it up for download if it is free, give it away to your survey respondants or as a contest prize. Send it to your newsletter subscribers or post it in free EBook directories.
Continue creating EBooks! Once you have created your first EBook, be sure to create additional ones as you have time. EBooks are getting very popular and should provide perfect additional boost to your current online marketing efforts.
