Write my e-book Once you have above step covered, once you already have your topic, writing your e-book should be a breeze. You do not need distinctions in English to write an e-book. People love e-books which are written in a more casual tone and not a stern go by book tone. I always create my table of contents first, and then simply proceed to elaborate on points I wish to bring forth. It’s really that simple. After completing that e-book, I almost always convert my e-book into a PDF file, so that more eyeballs will be able to read it. The PDF format is friendly with most desktop platforms. Please always format sentences to be of 1.5 spacing and try to use larger fonts. This is because of fact that it is always harder to read on computer screen as compared to a hard copy.
Create my website Your e-book website is not going to be a complicated website full of programming jargon. All you really need is two important pages, namely Sales Page and Thank You Page. The sales page will be where you show visitors your sales letter; it is showcase of your e-book business. The thank you page is where you will have a link for download of your product; in this case your product is your e-book.
You can be a total computer idiot and yet own e-book businesses. A great tip to creating that website is to reply on friends who are well-versed in web designing. There is absolute no need to hire expensive web designers to do same job a student web designer would do for a lunch treat. That was how I started my first e-book business back in 1997.
Accepting payments A lot of people start their e-book businesses to make money, you need to start your e-book business to add value and then to make money. An E-book business always accepts credit card payments due to fact that credit card is number one paying tool over internet. To accept credit card payments, you will need a merchant account that will process your customer’s cards and make sure payment is made. There are a few third party merchant accounts that will handle all credit card payments for your e-book businesses. The best part is you do not pay until you make a sale.
Promote your site This is going to be most difficult part of your e-book business. The hard fact is that Sales is directly proportional to Traffic. The most traffic you can get to your site, more sales you will make. There are a couple of great ways to generate traffic to your site. One of these ways is to create a free e-book, report or course. All you do next is to send out free e-books, reports or courses in anywhere possible and see traffic pouring into your site. Remember, people are always looking for free information over internet, so if you are able to provide great free information to people, they will spend on your website.”
There you have it, 5 steps to an e-book business unveiled. My hands were trembling by now. After an hour of hardcore e-book coaching, Rich Mum was ready to leave for her game of tennis, leaving me to adsorb notes I have just taken.
*For your information, Rich Mum tore cheque and before leaving, she whispered: “People will always be more committed after parting with their money.”
