Why Turn Your Book Into An Ebook?

How To Author A Book: Why Write A Short Book First!

You have a wealth of information about your field. You have already written a quality book for your audience. Here’s another way to make your book go the extra mile for you. You can develop your book excerpts into short ebooks.

Using free ebooks as a method of promotion is reaching peak popularity. If you thought book signings, flyers, paid ads and brochures were the only way to prime the pump for sales, think again. You can take sections of your book and convert them into short ebooks. Here are my top seven good reasons to create an ebook and then some tips to get you started:

  1. Virtually 100% profit margin … your e-book is delivered as an electronic PDF file over the Internet or epub/mobi file for ereaders, so the payment you collect for its purchase is nearly pure profit.
  2. No printing costs, no big cash outlay … compare that with self-published books where you can easily spend $9,000 or more on a first print run of 3,000 copies.
  3. No inventory to store … it’s just a PDF file you keep on your server. By comparison, the inventory of just one or two self-published print books can take up your whole garage or spare bedroom!
  1. Quick and easy to update … you can correct errors or add new information at any time – without spending a dime.
  2. No shipping costs or delays … the buyer gets it within minutes of placing his order online.
  3. Higher perceived value than regular books … e-books are typically less than HALF the length of regular books … yet they sell for two or three times more!
  4. Simple and inexpensive to produce … your total out-of-pocket costs are only a few hundred dollars – even less if you do the work yourself.

Now that your ebooks are ready, begin to promote them everywhere you think your targeted market searches for information on the Internet. Your short free ebook filled with insightful information and your signature file becomes the ad for the full edition of your book or ebook. Along with all the other places you submit your ebook, remember to setup a page on your website. The more information you circulate, the more your exposure increases along with your book sales. May your book journey become even more successful!
