One of the best ways to build your online income is by
writing & distributing ebooks. Ebooks can be a very
effective tool for marketing your business and they
can also be big money makers. Ebooks are also a
useful resource for whatever information you are
There are a few things you should remember if you are
going to write an ebook.
1. Just as your ezine should not be a giant ad, nor
should your ebook. Be sure to fill it full of useful
and valuable information.
2. Your ebook should be compiled in a simple, yet
professional design. Make your ebook look good, but
do not overdo. Make sure people can maneuver around
the book with ease.
3. Take the time to do the research and write an
effective and informative ebook. Your ebook will be
circulating around the web and will say a great deal
about you and your business.
4. Ebooks are a great giveaway for your visitors
and/or subscribers. Everyone is looking for useful
information which can be found in ebooks.
5. You should always use your first ebook as a
giveaway. This will entice more people to read your
ebook, which in turn will get more people to see how
good it is. When you do write your first ebook to
sell, you will have already established your reputation
for writing a useful and informative ebook.
6. You do not have to be a writer to write an ebook.
Just as with articles, all you need to do is gather,
organize and outline your information. Always add
resources and links when applicable. A good ebook
for giveaway can be as simple as a collection of your
articles or the articles of other authors.
7. After you have written all your ebook pages and
contained them all in a folder, you will need to
compile them into the actual ebook. This you do
with an ebook compiler and only takes a few minutes.
There are some free compilers and some that are not.
I have checked out several ebook compilers and would
personally recommend Ebook EditPro. It costs a bit,
but was very simple to use and did a fast and
effective job. Look for link in resource box.
8. After you finish your ebook, you want to start
promoting it. Add it to your website, put it in
your email sigtag, submit it to as many websites and
directories that you can find, add it to your article
resource box, announce it on message boards and email
discussion lists where allowed, make a separate web page
for it and submit the page to search engines, add it
to your ezine welcome letter as a free bonus. The
possibilities are endless if you use your imagination
and let as many people know about your ebook as
possible. Be sure to encourage people to also give it
to their subscribers/visitors as a free gift.
9. Make sure you have contact links listed in your
ebook so people can easily contact you or visit
your website. Also, be sure to have your ezine and
subscribe address listed.
10. Everyone can find ebooks useful not only for finding
the information they seek, but for promoting their
business and website as well as establishing a solid
reputation. They are also big moneymakers and just
about anyone can write and profit from a carefully and
effectively done ebook.

Make it fun, interesting and believe in yourself and
you will produce a very successful ebook!
