Prolific writers love writing eBooks for several reasons. eBooks are big writing projects that writers love to get their writing ‘teeth’ into, they’re easy to format because there are no paper page issues to worry about, and they’re quick to publish which leaves more time for writing.
But if you want to make a lot of money as an eBook writer then you need to be able to write fast. The faster you can produce an eBook the quicker you can start selling it, and you can go on selling it for years as long as the content is up to date. Even fiction books can get out-dated sometimes.
So you need to create eBooks fast if you want to earn your living this way.
The first thing you have to do with any eBook is research your subject. Even fiction books sometimes need a bit of research to make sure they are factually correct.
Research can be done quickly on the Internet. These days most libraries now have their reference books online too. Just make sure that you don’t get distracted by websites that look interesting but have no relevance to your research. Stay focused. Set aside an amount of time for research and that way, you’ll be less distracted by ‘pretty’ things you find on the internet because your time will be limited.
Next you need to outline your eBook mystic books thoroughly so that you know exactly what information you’re going to be including and in what order. Then it’s time to start writing. If you’ve researched enough and outlined properly, the actual writing should be easy and fast to do because you’ll have so many notes and outlines to refer to, plus all the information will be fresh in your mind.
Next you need to make money from your eBook.
eBooks are written for different reasons. The most obvious reason is to sell it and make money. And while this is an excellent way to make money writing eBooks, there are other ways too.
You can sell your eBooks as PLR products. PLR stands for Private Label Rights. This means that you are actually selling the copyright of your eBook with each sale. When someone buys a PLR eBook it becomes theirs to do with as they please. Many eBook writers sell only a certain amount of each PLR eBook so as not to flood the market with the same product and reduce its value.
Some eBook writers package their eBooks with promotional articles and a sales page to attract more buyers. The only problem with PLR eBooks is that if you’re selling a limited number of each one, your income is finite, but you can charge a high price per copy.
It’s common for writers to write a small promotional eBook to give away for free and use it to advertise their bigger eBook. These smaller eBooks can be used by others to give away too. This is known as viral marketing because everyone loves a freebie so chances are your free eBook will be downloaded thousands of times with people passing it along to others via their own websites. This can work really well as a promotional tool.
