Ok, so you're at that stage where you've gotten just enoughcontent to publish your first e-book, finally the grunt work isout of the way.

Sit back and pat yourself on the shoulder for a job well done.

Next task on the list?

How to add fresh content to your already existing e-book, Ipersonally find it much easier to add to an already existinge-book then to create an e-book!

But one does not shine without the other.

Can you think of any "sub-niche" market your target audiencewould like more information about, something that woulddefinitely grab their attention and add:

&bullPunch to your e-book. &bullIncreased interest for your e-book buteven more importantly... &bullIncreased sales of your ebook &bullAdd a"higher perception value" to your already existing ebook

How do you go about find that all elusive nugget?

Always turn to your target market for the best ideas on which"sub-niche market's" to explore next, not what you think theymight be interested in but what they are buying and recommendingto others.

Case-In-Point:

A few months ago I created an e-book related to a certain breedof dog. I made it through the grunt work and now simply add tothe e-book one step at a time, one product review or interviewat a time.

I ended up picking (by reading what the most used products ormost wanted products by this particular target market were) apedigree software program for a back end sales product. Thispedigree software program helps owners of animals keep all thedetails they could ever want to track in a database about theirpets.

What owner wouldn't want to know about a software program thatcould help make tracking certain details of their pets easy andconvenient?

So I simply contacted the owner of this particular softwareprogram, told him that I was interested in including informationabout his product in the e-book I had created. He knew it was awin/win situation and gladly agreed to answer a couple ofquestions regarding how his software worked and what benefit itcould bring to the reader.

The end result, more content for the e-book with only a fewminutes of work involved on my part plus the possibilities ofmaking commission from the back end sales of the pedigreesoftware which sells for $95.00 U.S., which I get a nice chunkof every time someone clicks on my link and makes a purchase.

So you see, it's not that hard to add fresh content to youre-book.

With the right angle, you can make your e-book unique from yourcompetitors, more informative to the reader, putting more moneyin your pocket.

Summary:

Expanding an already existing e-book is simply a matter ofreading what products your target market purchases, analyzingtheir wants and needs, focusing on one "sub-niche market" at atime
