I think the most exciting piece about being a writer is that the more we do it, the more our skills become finely honed. So that leads us to the writing of the great novel, yes?
Or maybe not. But it does open yet another possibility of profit streams. Oh, we like that word!
Enter E books. We know how popular they are. And we might have probably already done one just for our freebie give away on our autoresponder for our email list.
And for many of us, it feels daunting. I mean writing a book?
I have really wanted to do this, but it feels intimidating. Until I found out something really interesting. This is what I recently learned.
You know how we can never do duplicate copy because the Google god does not smile upon us if we do?
Well there is a bit of inner loop here.
All that content we have written on our blogs is usable. Yup, you heard right.
Want to know why?
Because an E book is transported through email.
So wait for this, ready?
And Google does not consider email duplicate copy! Whew!
That means that all of our content from our already published blogs, can be transformed into an E book .
Doesn’t that just make the concept so much easier to digest and then to do?
So start your thinking caps. Which of your blogs could be well used for an e book?
Anyone that fits this criteria:
1. State the problem
2. State the solution
3. Benefit for the reader
4. Tell the reader what you want them to do. What is our CTA (call to action)
And make sure its a great compelling story too!
1. It’s engaging
2. It solves problems
3. It makes the reader want more
4. Content has to have value
That seems very workable doesn’t it?
And you also have the option to write E reports too. Which are basically similar to E books, except they do not need a cover. Something to think about, yes?
But with anything that we write we always need to be mindful of process. Oh that word! I mean isn’t it true that all of life is a process? But with doing online work there needs to be a clear process to make that sale or point don’t you think?
So writing with process, what does that mean?
Well besides that it must have a beginning, middle and end. It needs to show how we get from the start to the conclusion.
For instance, if my E book was about orchids I would need to talk about how to start growing an orchid.
What kind of seed would I need
What kind of soil it would need,
What kind of pot would aid its growth
How often would I need to fertilize or water it,
What kind of light does it need to grow well
Does that make sense?
So, that shows process. And that is what we need to write a compelling E book.
Wanting to write an E book does not have to a daunting experience. Using our already written blogs we can create content that will not be seen as duplicate because it is delivered by email. Google does not count email as duplicate copy. Whew!
And when writing an E book as with any other writing, value and process has to be inherently the driving reason for the content.
The other part that I am learning about Affiliate Marketing, is that the more we diversify, the more profit streams we create. And that seems to be the carrot for creating a really viable business. That sounds really great, yes?
The other reason for diversifying is that we are never dependent on just one profit stream. So if one profit stream goes through a down spiral, we don’t have to panic. We have other streams to count on.
In other words that old adage don’t put all your eggs in one basket, is totally applicable here.
And that is also the excitement of dealing with Affiliate Marketing isn’t it? There are so many venues to add to our business repertoire. So go out there and write E books and create more profit streams. Sounds like a plan, yes?
So, I think I am ready to do this, do you think you are ready to do this?
Join me in this new adventure. After all, we do want our lives to filled with adventure yes? No dress rehearsal for us.
Because we make it happen, we don’t let it just happen. We are on this!
So go out there. Be fearless. Give E books a try.
And do let me know how you are doing with it ok?
In peace and gratitude,
