Write An E  -  Book And Create Passive Online Income

You might have never thought about writing an e-book before, or perhaps you have, but you don't find enough reasons or believe in yourself enough to do it. This article is here to help you with the process of writing an e-book and eventually making money on it, with the following 10 steps;

1) Choose a topic.

You are a person that has been through a lot in life, probably, and learned a lot from it. Think about your best experience or your expertise, and make a list of all the topics you could say a few words about. Don't have in mind that you'll have to write plenty about one topic you choose, just write out a bunch of them. Then, select one that you currently have the most interest in.

2) Define subtopics and table of content.

Connect all the topics you wrote in step 1, that have any link or whatsoever. Make them subtopics. After that, think deeper into the subject and think about creating 5 articles for each subtopic. What would those articles be about? Look at all the articles you wrote before. Can you find some of them related to the topic of your new e-book? Do your best and find a way to write 3 articles from each of those articles. By now, you should find enough inspiration to get you started. You'll find a lot more of it along the process of writing an e-book.

3) See what holds you back from writing.

We all have inner fears or insecurities that hold us back from doing things usually new for us. You might encounter questions like - Will someone criticize this? Is there already something like this on the market? What if I won't be satisfied with this later on? What if this and what if that, but quess what - those questions don't matter at all. The most important thing is that you actually get started and overcome that first, hardest step. It will get easier later on and you'll really enjoy doing it. If nothing, force yourself to write a page a day. Within 100 days, you'll have 100 pages, and that's a lot!

4) Find or create adequate images.

If you want to insert images or photos to your e-book, you'll have to make sure they're yours or that you have the right to use them. Buy ideal ones on stock photo websites and agencies. You don't want to have problems with this later on.

5) Look for affiliate offers to implement within the e-book.

If the e-book will be in pdf format, you'll be able to insert links in it. This means that readers will be able to click through to affiliates if you'll find appropriate ones. This may add another revenue stream, you perhaps might have not thought of.

6) Create a good bio and link to your website.

A biography is really important, since readers will want to know who wrote the e-book, and will want to know a lot more if they like it. Provide true, interesting information within the biography and write it in such way it drives the reader to want to find out more about you. You might hire someone to write your biography, if you're not keen on doing it yourself. A link to your website within the e-book is also a must. You can even put it in headers or footers.

7) Create appealing cover.

If you're not enough good on graphic design, get someone to make an e-book cover for you. You'll find a lot of graphic designers want to do it for you on pretty low budget on various freelancer websites. The cover must provide general information about the e-book's topic and give reasons for someone to want to read it.

8) Get the ISBN number.

The ISBN (Internation Standard Book Number) is a 13 digit number required for identifying books, therefore gathering sales information and helping publishers with ordering and distribution. After you get it, put it on the back cover of the e-book.

9) Put it in your site's store, and other online stores.

Put the e-book you've created on your site's store and start selling it. Make sure you design adequate landing page, though. Also, don't forget it to put it on Amazon and such sites, especially because it offers buyers to get a print version of the e-book, which means you won't have to worry with printing it, if you want to publish it in such format.

10) Leverage your e-book.

Make affiliate programs for it, if someone wants to resell it. Use it as an incentive for other things. Use it as a promotional tool. By thinking deeper in this topic, you'll find a lot of ways to leverage your e-book.
