Have You Written An ebook Yet?
Have you written an E-book yet? If not why not? I come across lots of bloggers out there who never consider it and a lot more bloggers giving away these same old 7 day bootcamps that are all carbon copies of each other. Writing an eBook can make you stand out more and especially if you give it away on your blog you can eventually get more and more traffic as well as subscribers to the blog.
Also writing an eBook people can get a ‘Feel’ as to what you’re about and if your blog is for them or not! I myself have written 3 eBooks and all can be downloaded from my ‘TheEpicBlog.com’.
Out with the Old and In with the New
For the past 4 years as a blogger I always wanted to move with the times and update as well as grow so with that I am ditching the 3 books and writing a completely new one from scratch utilising the best bits from the old books as well as adding more nuggets of info I have learned since! The internet is continually evolving and changing so we as bloggers should always evolve and change with the times otherwise we will get left behind! The way I look at blogging as a business is this – the more value you provide the more traffic and subscribers you can get and the more traffic/subscribers you get the more money you make!
But in order to get this more traffic to buy your affiliate products, cpa’s or to click on the ads on you site is getting increasingly difficult, yes there is twitter and Facebook but if you stand out from the crowd you’re not going to get anywhere! Which is why people should write an eBook to get traffic? You may think that me taking down my 3 current eBooks as lunacy but I have recently changed blogs and I don’t feel they represent my current blog well anymore plus I want to portray my blog as a more professional blog that has moved on from the old days when I first started.
But I’ve never written an eBook before
And don’t know how to start. Well dear reader it’s easier than you think but do remember that eBooks have what I call a shelf life and I consider the shelf life to be 3 years (depending on the subject material) which is why it’s time for a change for me! First off you want to think about where you want you blog to be in a years’ time think of how your visitors view it and if you was a visitor to your blog and wanted to have one like it where would you start?
That’s how I started and wrote my first book explaining the process of building a blog like mine, put simply I wrote the book very simply and guided the reader on how to go about buying a domain name and installing wordpress to a hosting provider but most of all I took my time, try and set aside 3 or 4 hours a day writing the book and before you know it you should have an excellent book, also write the book in word so you can use their excellent spelling and grammar tool.
Another thing I recommend if not to write it too impersonal and generic but put a bit of your personality into it after all blogs are like personal places to share your thoughts. Don’t think also that the book should be hundreds of pages long as some of the best ones I have read are as little as just 16 pages. Once your happy with it send it to a trusted friend or subscriber to review it for you! Also to get more credibility ask readers to leave you a comment/testimonial about the book you have just written!
Lastly don’t think that writing a book as a chore but make sure you have fun with it as if you don’t the reader will pick up on it and probably unsubscribe from your blog. What are your thoughts guys? Discuss, comment, and share!
