If eBooks are so Great… What is the Problem?
Shouldn’t we all just start writing ebooks and wait for the passive income to roll in…wouldn’t it be great if it was just that easy?
Well the truth is that most writers when they are first starting out they tend to idealize ebook writing or just writing in general. They write only when inspired, rather than to a schedule with tight timelines. They see it as more of a creative art, rather than a business.
Don’t get me wrong inspiration is important and of course writing is a creative art, but it weighs just as heavily as the business side.
And then there’s the problem of writing about a topic that you know nothing about.
Oh…and did I mention assuming that there is an audience for what you are writing.
This is a huge mistake and one that can be very costly. Without doing the proper market research you may be wasting a lot of time and effort with little to no return.
Coming up with great ideas for ebooks can also be extremely challenging making it easy to keep putting it off until tomorrow.
And well we all know how that ends… tomorrow just never comes.
…and what about marketing and design?
Maybe you have already written your book. Maybe writing is not your problem at all. But what do you do when you are finished the writing?
You see when it comes to creating ebooks there are three moving parts:
- The writing
- The designing and
- The marketing
And with most people one or two of these areas holds them back. What about you? Which area is holding you back?
Let me ask you this…do you see yourself in any of the points below?
- I have no idea where or how to start an ebook
- I have no idea how to properly structure and format an ebook
- I don’t know what topics I should write about or what really interests people
- I don’t know anything about design and would not have a clue how to design a cover
- I don’t know how to price or sell my ebook
- I have no idea how to set up a launch campaign or market my ebook
If you answered ‘yes’ to two or more of these then you are absolutely in the right place.
