E-books can help your clients get a deeper understanding of a topic that you can explain only minimally on a website. You can provide an e-book as an incentive for signing up for your mailing list. Or you can offer it for sale on sites like Amazon or Barnes & Noble and reap residual income, potentially for years to come.
Here’s how it works. You provide the subject matter, research leads, and a table of contents, and I write the book. We share the byline (my preference, though I also do ghostwriting under certain circumstances). I get paid by the hour, you keep the profits.
I work quickly and efficiently, so once you have your part together, you could be looking at a first draft within the week. (I do two rounds of edits, to be sure you’re happy.)
- e-book formatting
- thoroughly researched writing based on your table of contents and leads
- linked reference list for further reading
- extras (e.g., photos) as desired
Here are some questions to ask yourself, if you’re considering have an e-book written.
Do I know my subject well enough to be considered an expert?
Why is it time to write a book about this?
What kinds of information am I interested in sharing with readers?
What research do I want to be sure to include in the book?
How much would I want this book to sell for?
What kinds of things will make my book the kind of book I’d want to read?
Do I have a website set up for people to find more information (and potentially look for additional products or services) after reading the book?
Am I prepared to be the “go to” person for this topic, doing guest appearances on podcasts, writing guest blogs, and perhaps other venues?
Sound exciting? If you’re ready to talk about the possibilities, let me know!
