Marketing In April I decided to write an ebook, mostly as an experiment.
In this comprehensive post Ali Hale breaks down the process of how to do it. You already know all the reasons to do it: My time broke down like this: Redrafting and editing, inserting all links: Final proof-read and link-checking: Get an Idea You need a clear concept for your ebook.
Pick one category from your blog, or a topic which would make a series of blog posts. Then I came up with an idea for a mini-series of two linked posts Reframing Work 1: I decided I was going to go ahead and launch it, a week after the first post in the series. This led to… Step 2: You might want to make the announcement in a post, on Twitter, or to your newsletter list.
Communicate a sense of excitement: This is part of the pre-launch process of getting a buzz going. Write the Outline If you write long blog posts, you might already be in the habit of outlining before you begin.
With an ebook, this is crucial: Open up a blank document or sit down with a piece of paper and write an outline before you go any further with your ebook. Everyone has different ways of doing this, but one which works well for me is: Spend five minutes mind-mapping: Order the rest in a logical sequence I just jot a number next to each Type or write out the list in order.
These are your subsections or chapters in the ebook. Jot down at least two bullet points for each section, or a couple of sentences: If you think of a great idea for a graphic, or a resource book, blog, etc to recommend, write that down here too.
It might sound complicated, but if you sit down for an uninterrupted half-hour, you can easily get a complete outline written.Write the ebook.
