Have you been wanting to create your own
information products but find it hard getting started? A successful
e-book creates powerful income if you do it right. I started selling my
first e-book for only $10 but I quickly raised it up to $29.95 because
I heard that most people under-price their products.
Today that same first product I created sells successfully at $97. Of
course it has evolved into quite a different product since then. I have
made a lot of money with all my e-books in the last 4 years. They pay
the rent and all my other bills faithfully. Here are 11 points to help
you get started making some decent money online creating your own
1.) Write About Something You Know About - Do you have a special hobby
or a business that others would like to know about? If not, maybe a
relative or a neighbor does. Study what other people are writing about
2.) e-Books That Show People How To Increase Their Income Are Popular.
Before you create your product, make sure there is a market for it. I
got lucky on my first book. I didn't look for a market. I just went on
faith from the advice of another publisher. My first e-book has done
well because it shows people how to make money.
3.) Tips Books Are The Easiest Products To Create - an example would be
"50 training tips for dog lovers, "99 profitable businesses to start
for less than $500", "21 days to a new you" etc. (I better shut up. I
like that last title.)
4.) Write Your Sales Letter First - this helps shape your product to be
what you want it to be and what you want it to accomplish. It is like
building a blueprint first before building the go-cart. List all the
benefits and features your e-book should have to deliver.
5.) Get An e-Book Compiler Like Adobe PDF, - as soon as I got my software I got excited about the money I could make with it.
6.) Use Digital Pictures To Enhance The Value - if you have a how-to
type of book about a trade or a hobby, using your digital camera can
greatly enhance your e-books' perceived value and the price. Plus it
helps illustrate what your are teaching with the sharp color photos a
digital camera can deliver.
7.) Give Your e-Book A Good Title - Just as a powerful headline can
increase your sales letters PULL, the right title for your book is just
as important also for sales. Make that a Red-Hot title!
8.) Don't Over-Sell Your Book - don't over-promise or over-hype things
in your sales letter just to sell your e-book or you may get too many
people asking for refunds. It is better to over-deliver instead. Making
it way better than they thought it would be will make them amazed.
9.) Find Related Follow Up Products For Your e-Book - find profitable
"related" products or services that you can add to your book for more
profits. Your readers will love the added information and you will love
the extra sales.
10.) Enhance Your Product - offer an audio or video to the deal. Just
as digital pictures add value to an ebook, so does adding an audio
version of it or one or more videos to the package.
11.) Lace Your Products - in time you should have several e-books you
are selling online. By adding information about all your other books in
the back of each one of them gives you free advertising and extra
So there you go. If you want to start creating your own e-books and
marketing them online, it isn't that hard at all. Remember, tip books
are the easiest way to start writing and creating your info-products.
You can always format it without the tips once it is structured.
