Writing your own ebook, when executed correctly is one of the most profitable things you can do online. Once you have decided to write your own book, there are several steps of action to take.
1. Define your market. I am not referring to simply choosing a niche, but you must know who your target reader will be. Are they predominantly male or female? Are they over 40, or young college students? Defining your market will help you with the style of your writing. You will find you need to write differently to keep the interest of a younger male audience than for women over 50, for example.
2. Decide what the main concerns of your target market is, and list them. Giving vague fluff to fill pages will result in refund requests. For your book to be successful, you must find out the main problems affecting your market and provide them with real solutions.
3. Write! Make a rough draft of the direction the book will take and begin to write it – don’t worry about the flow of your words, or grammatical mistakes to begin with. The important thing is to get what is in your head out, the book will need probably need several parts rewritten before you are happy with it, so just make a start.
Your reasons for wanting to write an ebook are likely to have an impact on your success. While obviously you want some financial reward, keep upmost in your mind you should also have an interest in helping your readers, and giving them an excellent return on their investment.
