What is an eBook?

As quoted from Wikipedia:

An electronic book (variously, e-book, eBook, digital book) is a book-length publication in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, and produced on, published through, and readable on computers or other electronic devices. Sometimes the equivalent of a conventional printed book, e-books can also be born digital.

Who should make an eBook?

EBooks will not work with all the niches; it works only with some of the niches. If your blog is about news, an eBook will not work with it, since your blog concentrates on providing everything new for your readers. What will you give when they don’t want to hear old news?

Having said that, for whom will it work?

An eBook will work best for tutorials and guide sites, as the main use of e-books is to give people information.

You can now measure where your blog falls between these 2 measures, and see if an eBook will work with your niche or not.

Why make an eBook?

There are many reasons why you can make an eBook, and these reasons depend on how you decide to publish it.

If you publish it and people must pay for it to get it, then basically your main purpose is to make a good sum of money, as with the example shown by Darren Rowse.

If you publish it for free, you can ask for an email address in order to give it to them. This brings you more and more loyal subscribers; as you know, the power is in the list. So, this will generate you an automatic income after they subscribe and you will be an authority.

What should you know before you make an eBook?

1-it’s not that easy. That’s right: it will take you some work to design an eBook, but it is not terribly hard, either.

2-Quality matters more than the quantity. It’s no problem if your eBook is 10 pages but has high-quality content. That’s better than a 50-page eBook that doesn’t have that same quality.

What will we cover in this series?

We will try to cover all the things related to creating an eBook that is profitable. We will cover all the steps, from searching for writing to publishing it (even if you will publish it for free or paid) .

All this will be covered soon, and the best way to be updated with news is to subscribe to the blog to receive updates directly.
