Write Your Own E-Book - The Easy Way

by : Tony Evans

Ever wanted to write your own e-book but don't know where to start; don't know how to write a book; hated English when you were at school? Read on and I will show you how to create your own e- book and have your name as author and only have to write 4 or 5 paragraphs yourself, something anybody can do

Still with me, right lets get started.

What we are going to do is, using other peoples hard work, create an e-book that will sell like hot cakes. This sounds too good to be true, I know but stay with me. This method is one used by some of the top selling publishers on the internet, to create products time after time.

In another article, 'Researching Your Niche - How Hard Can It Be?', I showed you how to find niche e-book ideas in article directories. Today we're going to use the content in them to create e- books.

Web site owners use Article Directories to submit their articles they have written so they get free publicity for their web sites. At the end of each article is a link back to their web site with a bit of information about their site. These site owners want people to take that article and market it to others so they get visitors to their site with out spending any money on marketing themselves. This is perfect for savvy entrepreneurs who are willing to spend a few hours of their time in order to profit for many years.

Go to www.goarticles.com or any other article directory, and type in the topic of the niche you want to write about in the search bar at the top right (make sure it's on "article content" rather than search by author). So for example type in " gardening". You'll get thousands of result related to what you have searched for. Now what I want you to do is simply go through the results finding at least one hundred quality articles related to the topic of gardening and copy and paste them into Word or some kind of word processing application.

As I've said make sure they are quality articles. If you create an e-book using rubbish you'll just get a sky high refund rate and it will all be a pointless exercise. Do it right from the off and you'll set yourself up for success.

Try and tie all the articles together into one sub niche. For example a sub niche of gardening might be composting. So you could find articles on composting left over food, what plants not to compost that kind of thing. Use a bit of imagination when using this method.

Email Article Authors

You don't want to use any articles without the author's permission. Remember the majority of articles will have been submitted so the author can get visitors to their site without spending a dime. However you never want to breach any copyright laws. To avoid this email the authors of each article. Explain to them that you are creating an e-book aimed at their niche market. You'd love to include their article in your book and you'll include a link back to their site and information about them. Also ask them if they have any other articles you could include.

You can expect around seventy percent of authors you contact to be delighted you're going to include their article in your book. Then all you need to do is discard the articles from authors who you haven't heard from or who won't let you use their article.

Put the articles in an order that makes sense and create a contents page. Use the titles of the articles as contents topics. You could even create chapters aimed at solving certain problems people in your niche have. So for example if you were creating an e-book on golf you could create a section on improving your golf swing, a section on the mind game of golf and so on. All articles would make up separate chapters.

Finally write a short introduction and conclusion. These only need to be a few paragraphs each. Tell people what they can expect to learn and make sure you sign off using your name. Instantly you will establish yourself as an expert. You can also link to your back end products at the end of the book to increase your sales.

Finally you need to turn it into an e-book to sell. Go to www.primopdf.com and download the software. Don't worry it's free. Once downloaded all you need to do is in your word software hit " file"and then "print" and then select "primo PDF" as your printer. Voila. You've just created an e- book using other people's hard work. This whole process can be done in just a few hours. Obviously you may need to wait a day or two for the article authors to get back to you but apart from that you're all set! Anyone can use this method to create more e-books than you'd ever be able to sell.

That's a great method right? I mean it won't cost you anything to create a product yet you could sell hundreds if not thousands of copies and keep all the profits using other people's hard work!
