Creating Your Own Quick and Easy eBook Products
Second only to website creation, one of the most widely spread use of all of the
information that can be obtained from the Internet is the creation of an eBook
from gathering targeted specific information about a particular subject. You see
them everywhere. Some are free and some are not. To some it may seem a daunting
task to write an eBook. In the following article I will lay out the basic steps
it takes to create your own eBook product.
Depending on the subject you choose creating an eBook product of your own can be
accomplished in as little as 2 1/2 to 5 hours tops. There are really only six
steps needed to create one. If you can write an article to post in article
directories you can create your own eBook product. So what are these six steps?
Okay, lets explore them. The six steps needed are:
Come up with an idea
You may have already picked an idea or already have several ideas. If not the
best places to get an idea for a new eBook is to visit forums on the Internet
that are based on a particular topic you are interested in or have some
experience with. Maybe you love cooking and know lots of specialized recipes for
the greatest home made cakes ever baked.
Maybe you know a lot about little league baseball coaching, maybe you are an
avid wildlife photographer. Seek out forums on the Internet pertaining to these
subjects and read a few posts to see what kind of questions people are asking
about them. It won't take long before you get an idea of what kind of questions
you could answer in your eBook.
Research your idea
So by now you should have at least one idea of a subject for an eBook. Next you
want to research the subject and gather more information about it. So how do you
do this? Well you could continue to read more forums related to your subject
matter or you could speed up the process and see if someone else has already
covered the topic in some way and get information from their work. Now I am not
advocating plagiarism here at all. You want your work to be original and fresh,
but you can use other informational products to help you explain your subject matter.
So using your favorite search engine you can search for something like this:
"fly fishing + ebook". This search will get you a list of results that are related
to your subject matter and already written into an eBook. Now another slick idea
is to search for PDF documents since most all eBooks are saved in PDF format.
So you could do a search like this: filetype:pdf "fly fishing". These are but
two examples of how to find already written reports and eBooks on your subject
be creative and I think you'll find other ways of finding them. The key is you
want to find free resources to use for gathering information for your eBook.
