First book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Physical Strength Can Only Take You So Far Reigning CrossFit World Champion . Yes, writing an ebook takes time, effort and energy. Believe it or not, I actually wrote my first eBook with in a week. Beat Schindler says. I have returned from the fiery abyss of writing my first eBook and uploading it on . When someone borrows your eBook, you earn money. After hitting Save & Publish, it will take about 24 hours for it to be on the Kindle store.
You may have ordered products, even books, from site in the past. But this is a whole different side to this massive e-commerce site. The big benefit to working through site Kindle Direct Publishing , even though they charge you a commission on your sales, is their reach. Around 89 million Americans are said to be active ebook readers. It could be your book they find when doing a search on a related keyword.
While you may not make as much money as you would selling directly on your own site, you'll have the opportunity to reach an audience who you wouldn't otherwise have access to. The process of selling your ebook on Kindle is straightforward. You sign up, then upload your ebook. They take care of converting it to their proprietary format. Which of these options should you go with?
I recommend doing both. Put one or two of your books on site and think of that as a traffic source Use your site ebooks to drive people back to your website and get them onto your email list. The best way to do this is to include a free bonus offer inside your book and have them go back to your website to claim their bonus.
In order to get access to the bonus, they have to opt-in and give you their email address. Once you have them on your email list you can follow up with them and sell them additional ebooks from your own site, at a higher price point. Use the best of both worlds! If you are already making money with a blog , those blog posts could be turned into an ebook with some editing.
Any blog posts you use should cover the same or related topics and work well together. Although the information can be found for free throughout your site many people are willing to pay money to have it formally organized into something easier to consume, like an ebook.
If you want to publish an original work of fiction or nonfiction — something you write yourself fresh — that is also a good option. Write something every day! Start with an outline and then fill it in. You can also repurpose a book that is in the public domain. This means the copyright has expired and anybody can take the content of those books, and publish them, either updated or reworked in some way or as is. Did you see that book, Pride and Prejudice, and Zombies that came out a few years ago?
You can find public domain works, which include classics like Call of the Wild by Jack London and Shakespeare and books on just about every subject you can think of a quick search yielded dog training guides, a how-to guide for amateur singers, and much more , in places like Project Gutenberg.
The key here is to not just republish the public domain works but to modify them and put your unique twist on them. An example would be the book The Art of War.
Another option is you can hire someone else to write your book for you. This is actually a very common practice in the book publishing industry; these writers are referred to as "ghost writers". A final thought to keep in mind is that you don't have to write something like War and Peace. Keep in mind that while you won't make a huge profit per book on these you can sell a larger volume of books and use these as a way of attracting people into the other things you do.
Only those from established best-selling authors get this attention. With all the options available, you should have no problem finding a way to get your book title s out into the world and grab the attention of potential readers. I recommend a multichannel approach — approach the marketing from several different angles.
One definite channel is social media. Leverage your Facebook page , Twitter, LinkedIn contacts, and more to get the word out. When the book is published, post it on Facebook with a link back to your website with more information and a way to order, for example. You have to build buzz around your ebook.
Encourage people to tell friends about your ebook and spread the word. Post content related to your book. Create contests. Do giveaways. Get creative with your marketing. That was a sweet ego boost. I agreed to review web copy for about 8 or 10 startups. Unfortunately, I received way more requests than I could handle.
The only cure is more cowbell.
Anyway, a handful of the people I turned down suggested I write an ebook instead. I listened. Deciding to do it is a major part of actually doing it, BTW. I asked the startups I took on to agree to let me use the experience, their questions, their results, etc. And for the next 3 months, I gave away my services and documented everything.
I just decided to. It was a strange phase I was going through, like the year when I rocked a pixie cut.
I procrastinated. Anyway, the point is that something changed in my cushy, comfy, high-paying day job… and I had to get out. I quit.
We have bills to pay. Ended up with pages and yet so much left unsaid.
I got my ebook to a point that I felt pretty good about it. Good enough to send it out for feedback. I was right to cringe. The content was good, my readers said. But the book was too long. Startups need to learn how to write a headline right now. Or where messages come from in the first place.
Or how to get visitors to click on their buttons. My target market needed bite-sized pieces of info that hit on specific topics. To do this took a mindset shift. See, as a writer, I felt a sort of philosophical desire to hold true to my artistic vision — you know, the thing we march up to the top of the mountain to have revealed to us in a psychedelic mist.
I quickly realized that such an attitude was super-problematic. I was a skilled worker who was creating content.
Valuable content — book-worthy content. But, at the end of the day, just content. I was not venturing into the world of non-fiction writing or publishing. I was venturing into the world of content marketing.
