How to Write an eBook that Sells

Many people create ebooks but many of them go unsold. This is a waste of time but there are ways to ensure this does not happen to you. An ebook is a digital book that can be read on your computer with a PDF reader. They are becoming more and popular as an alternative to the traditional book.

The first thing to know is the subject that you are going to be writing about. Unless you have personal experience with this subject, then you need to start researching. Alternatively you can find an expert in this area and interview them. You need to have the content written in such a way that people can understand and implement the advice.

Remember that your readers want to solve their problems and have bought the ebook for this reason. Ensure that the chapters are clear and provide real ways for them to get huge benefits from the advice that you offer.

Write the ebook in a word processor, as this the best way to ensure it is formatted correctly. This will also allow you to remove any spelling and grammar errors that are present. I also recommend that you create an attractive front cover for the eBook, as many people buy based on this fact alone. You might need to pay someone to design a graphic for you. This is a worthwhile investment if you are unable to create it yourself. Once the ebook is complete in the word processor, you need to convert it into a PDF document.

A PDF documents is a file format that can be read on nearly all computers and handheld devices. It also provides extra security for your ebook and stops people from infringing your intellectual property.

In order to convert it into a PDF document you will need to use a PDF converter program. Sometimes these can be expensive, but there are a few free ways to do this. I recommend that you download a free version of OpenOffice or Word 2007, as these allow you to covert a word processing file into a PDF document free of change. The feature is build into the software.

You then need to create a website in order to sell your new ebook. Use Dreamweaver to create the website. You will need a sales page that give the benefits of the ebook and why people should buy. You also need to have a PayPal button on that page. This will let people send you money. You can find this button inside your PayPal account. You then need to paste the code into your sales page.

Once someone has bought the ebook, you need to deliver it to him or her. For this to work, you need a download page which links directly to your ebook. When someone orders and pays via PayPal, they must to be directed to the download page in order to download the ebook immediately.

Once you have all these steps taken care of, you have a complete ebook publishing business established. You are ready to start sending traffic to the website and making sales for years to come.
