You know . . . an easy way to turn your knowledge into possible income is to create a booklet or e-book. Obviously, an e-book, if you use sources such as Lulu.com and Smashwords.com, will cost nothing. But, on the flip side, if you’re thinking of doing B2B (business to business) work, businesses would prefer a booklet to hand out to prospects, clients, or employees.
But, today, I’m going to address e-books.
E-books are an amazing product – they can be absolutely FREE to create!
What else can you create for FREE and SELL for whatever you think it is worth? The only cost is your time and some effort.
All you do is open a Word document and start typing away. Get all that expert knowledge you’ve accumulated over the year/s and create your content. Just be sure that your content will actually be of value to your readers and reliable.
Pretty easy so far, right?
Now that your content is set, you can add pictures. If you can believe it, this is free also! Just use clip art, or another easy way to do this is take your own pictures. Download them onto your computer and then upload them into your e-book. If you have a program such as Photoshop Elements you can create all types of variations of one simple photo.
That’s it! It’s time to take your Word doc and upload it to Lulu.com, or other source. You can also use a pdf creator and change your word doc into a pdf file – now you have an e-book!
Is that cool!
So, what can you do with that e-book you created?
Well, just about anything!
You can sell it on your site through Paypal; you can sell it through Lulu; you can offer it as a free gift to entice visitors to sign up for your newsletter. You can offer as reprint allowable to increase your visibility and traffic back to your site. You can market with it, create your expertise with it…you get the idea.
What?You’re not sure if you can do it on your own? That’s okay, don’t fret.
If you’re a little hesitant about undertaking this task, there is help available right here.
