What they say is true; ebooks are great money-making tools. You can make money by selling them online, by using them as lead and traffic-generating tools, by selling ad spaces, and by using them as mediums in positioning yourself as an industry leader to easily earn the confidence and trust of your target market. However, keep in mind that your ebooks will not bring money to your doorstep unless you make sure that they are of high quality. Here’s what you need to do to make sure that your electronic books will work to your advantage:
1. Increase your knowledge. You need to make sure that your ebooks contain in-depth and complete information so you can give your readers great learning experience. This will not possibly happen if your knowledge in your chosen topics is very limited. Exert a conscious effort in increasing your knowledge by obtaining more information through extensive research. You can check several online and offline resources and if possible, interview other industry leaders. The more information you gather, the higher your chances of making your ebooks more informative thus, more valuable to the eyes of your clients.
2. Go with non-fiction topics. If you intend to make your ebooks fictional, let me just tell you that you really cannot expect huge monetary rewards in going to this route. Based on research, online users are only willing to spend their money on ebooks that can help them improve the quality of their lives or can help them reach their goals. So, instead of writing romance novels, write about the pressing issues of your readers or share with them a slice of your knowledge that they can use in realizing their goals in life.
3. Use an outline. Don’t make your ebooks sound like you just put together random thoughts. To make them easy to understand and to give your clients great reading experience, make sure that your content flows smoothly. Create an outline even before you start writing your ebooks. This can act as your content’s blueprint to make sure that you’ll be able to present all the information that you would like to share in a logical manner.
4. Manually proofread and revise your ebooks. Don’t just rely on your grammar and spelling checker as they are not 100% reliable in spotting errors. At least 2 days after you have finished writing your ebooks, make time to manually proofread them. Eliminate all types of errors and if needed add or delete information to make your content sound more concise and informative.
