How To Write Your Own Ebook

One of the easiest ways to gain status, leads, credibility and trust from your customers is to write your own ebook.

Many people are intimidated by the thought of creating their own ebooks but the truth is, the process is very straight-forward and it can be enormously profitable. If you are already involved in activities such as blogging, article marketing and creating relationships with newsletters, an ebook is just one step beyond in the whole process but can really give your credibility rating an extra boost.

Here are three steps in how to write your own e-book.

1. Choose a topic for your target audience. Don’t make this into a huge product. Pick something relatively narrow within a major topic. So, for example, if the main topic is “internet marketing”, choose something that fits within that category like “article marketing”, or you could go even further and narrow it down to “keyword research for article marketing”.

Keep in mind that for an ebook to work the way you want it to, it must truly address the problems, concerns, or desires of your target market. The content must be top-of-the-line.

2. Brainstorm. Write down every idea you have, walk away and come back and write more. Put down anything and everything for now.

3. Organize your ideas into an outline. Divide your ideas into headers, subheaders, chapters and write descriptions of each point you include. Make sure to keep track of your references and write those down too.

4. Research. Hopefully you’ve picked a topic that you are familiar with already but whether you have or haven’t you’ll need to do research to make your content as valuable as possible. Take notes, mark references and use quotes as you write your own ebook.

5. Put all of your organized ideas and research into a very long article of at least 30 pages – this is your ebook!

6. Get a second opinion. Chances are you’ll spend quite a bit of time on this endeavor. Make sure that you step back every once in a while to give yourself a break. And when you’re near the end, ask someone else to read it for a more objective opinion. Whether it’s your friend, spouse or a fellow marketer, make sure you get a good, honest critique and, if possible, edit of your work.

Once you’re finished, you can either sell your ebook from your blog or website or you can offer it free of charge for people who sign up – the goal of this is to build your list.

If you decide on the first option, you’ll have to set up a shopping cart system. You don’t have to charge a lot for your ebook to make money and because it doesn’t cost you anything to create the book (if you don’t count the time you spend on it) so anything you sell will be a profit.

Learn to use the internet in a smart way and know that you can make money online through study and effort. So now are you ready to write your own ebook?

3 Simple Steps To An Income With Affiliate Programs

Today, people are  looking to make additional income or some extra money and they are turning to the internet in droves. Many people are learning how to make money online, and specifically, how to make money with affiliate programs. Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to get started online because you don’t need to sell your own product or service. All you have to do is sell someone else’s product or service and you make a commission.

Affiliate marketing can be easily understood. You’ll find 3 simple steps involved in successful affiliate marketing. First, you need to find the product or service that you want to promote. Secondly, you need to make sure that your offer is in front of a lot of people. And lastly, you need to build a list of the people who you show the product/service to, regardless of whether they end up buying it. Make sure you understand this last concept because it’s crucial to the success of affiliate marketing and any internet marketing venture!

If you are brand spanking new to affiliate marketing then you are going to want to figure out what type of product or service you want to promote. Ask yourself this question, “Where do you find the product or service you want to promote?” ClickBank is one of the most popular sites that you can use and it’s also very quick and easy to get started. All you need to do is register for free and then go into the MarketPlace section. Here you can try search what you might want to promote by category or keywords. I recommend you sort your choice by “gravity” which is not the only important factor but it’s a very good indicator if you’re just starting out. You can get into a lot more complicated analysis of the “right” products later on. Once you choose a product, just click on hoplink, put in your clickbank NickName, and you’ve got your affiliate link, ready to promote. Many people have started their affiliate marketing businesses by reading Rosalin Gardner’s famous ebook on affiliate marketing, called the Super Affiliate Handbook.

nicheclassroom-dummiesGetting eyes on your affiliate link will be your next problem….that is, how do you get people to see your affiliate links. Once you’ve chosen your product/service, you’ve come to the key of how to make money with affiliate programs. . .getting traffic to the program. You can use article directories to market your products but make sure that you concentrate on those that have high page ranks and allow affiliate links. Another option is pay-per-click (PPC) although you need to read the affiliate program’s rules before you try this. Some affiliate companies do not allow the use of their name in PPC ads for example. And one of the easiest and most popular ways to make money with affiliate marketing is to place links on blogs.

There’s always secrets to this internet marketing stuff, some real, some just BS. This next concept could make the difference between making a lot of money online with affiliate marketing or failing miserably. Here goes, the last step is a little bit more complicated and can be done after you get the hang of the first two. Basically, you’ll want to make sure that you get the contact information of the people who show some interest in your product so that, even if they don’t buy it now, you can still keep in contact with them and they may end up purchasing either this product or something else you sell later on. In order to do this, you’ll need to create your own squeeze page which contains a contact form. You advertise this squeeze page and once someone fills in their contact information, you direct them to your affiliate link. The company that will fulfill your needs when it comes to collecting the contact information and automatically sending emails is called Aweber….remember that name and click on that link. An autoresponder service should be one of the first purchases you make for your online business because you will use it with every aspect of internet marketing and not just affiliate marketing.

One more thing you should really consider if you are going to start your own affiliate marketing business. You need a state of the art affiliate link cloaker or ….. this is software or a script that disguises your affiliate links and helps you to ensure that you get the proper credit if somebody clicks on your link and buys through your affiliate link. Advanced Link Cloaker is a product that a good friend of mine has created and is something you should consider purchasing for your business, it has the potential of helping your make and keep a lot of money! Link cloaking can be performed a number of different ways using a variety of different pieces of software or scripts, in fact, you can do if for free if you want, Alan Peterson’s book The Definitive Guide to Link Cloaking will show you  and explain to you everything you need to know about cloaking and hiding your affiliate links.

Finally, affiliate marketing is one of the best internet marketing methods someone can use to start making a little extra money online. Learn the basics of affiliate marketing by joining a membership exclusively designed to teach you the basics of affiliate marketing, Affilorama is probably the best membership designed to teach anyone from the newbie to experienced marketer how to best use affiliate marketing to make a great living online. I’ll leave you with one though, If you want to make money with affiliate programs, I recommend to not depend too heavily on one product or one site. It’s no different than the old adage, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”

I would use it as a back up to my daily or weekly blogging about gardening. The fill in content can be made unique with the ebook import plugin. Take a look at some of these ebook import features:

Import ebooks that are in text format to WordPress.

Use standard wordpress themes and plugins with your ebooks.

Randomize the time the pages are posted to give a more “human” feel to the post times.

Post the ebook pages in forward or reverse order.
