I was at a meetingrepparttar other day when one member ofrepparttar 148576 audience came up to chat to me after I had given my presentation. 'I agree with what you told us,' she said, 'but it only applies to some people. After all in my business there's nothing I can turn into an ebook.' Within a minute of chatting to me she had developed two ideas for ebooks.

Now, I'm not saying I'm some kind of miracle worker. However, often I discover that many people who run their own business can't seerepparttar 148577 wood forrepparttar 148578 trees. They are so tied up in delivering solutions to their existing customers, they can't see what else might be possible. As an example, I was talking to a chap fromrepparttar 148579 Midlandsrepparttar 148580 other day who runs a plastic mouldings company. He said to me that my ideas for ebooks only work inrepparttar 148581 service industry and they they couldn't possibly work within his sector.

A few minutes later we had developed an idea for an ebook which he is now going off to get written. As a search term, "plastic mouldings" gets around 45 searches a day inrepparttar 148582 UK. Atrepparttar 148583 moment his web site gets almost none of those searches; instead his web site exists as a brochure to people inrepparttar 148584 know - largely existing customers. What this means is, his web site is missing important traffic that could provide business.

So, now he is writing an ebook onrepparttar 148585 theme of 'how to use plastic and saverepparttar 148586 environment'. He will be making this available free of charge - but he could add future ebooks for which he will charge, such as 'how to specif icy projects using plastic'. Now, he's not going to become a millionaire selling such ebooks. Butrepparttar 148587 free ebook will attract traffic he might otherwise have lost andrepparttar 148588 paid for ebook will finance his Google AdWords campaigns. The result will be much more traffic to his web site at no cost, perhaps even at a profit. Suddenly, my chap fromrepparttar 148589 Midlands realised thatrepparttar 148590 key to unlockingrepparttar 148591 future success of his company was selling information.
