Creating Your Own Niche Product
Most people who are new to the Internet, or even some who have been around for a while, believe that they can’t create their own ebooks (or CD’s, videos, etc.) because they can’t write. There are also a lot of ‘so-called’ gurus or experts who want you to believe that it’s more difficult than it actually is. The truth is, you CAN create your own ebooks and other products. And that you can do it fast! It doesn’t even matter if you have any writing experience. Your main challenge will be to prove that you’re an expert on the topic you’re writing about. But don’t worry; creating your own product will be easy once you learn the shortcut and tips outlined below.
It’s about perspective. Imagine if you’d never seen a bicycle before and then suddenly you saw someone riding one. You’d think, wow, that’s incredible, there’s no way I can do that. But you can. Sure it’ll take some practice and some instruction. And for the first bit, if someone runs beside you – that would make it easier. That’s what this ebook is, it’s that first help you need to be on your way. Writing something that’s marketable is possible and you can learn how. It’s just like riding a bike.
The trick really is to just get started. An empty page will kill your creativity. Just start writing and let your thoughts flow. At the beginning, don’t worry about spelling, grammar, sentence structure or formatting. Just get the information out of you. The editing comes later. If you edit while you write, you’ll interrupt your flow of ideas. You could also try recording yourself. Talk freely and imagine you’re talking to a friend. Give advice about the subject your writing about.
Then, when you’re done, you can type it all out into your computer, or
get someone to transcribe it. You don’t need to be an English major to write an ebook. In fact it’s better if you’re not. The best writing and the easiest to read is conversational. Write the way you talk to a friend, and don’t try to impress with fancy words. Then, read it out loud. This is super important. You’ll find things you won’t see by reading it silently. And before you know it you’ll be adding, editing, and moving content around. You can also hire a college student to edit it for you, if you’re not comfortable doing it yourself. Ebooks that feel like the author is talking to the reader are the most helpful and easiest to read, even if a comma is in the wrong spot. Perfect can be perfectly boring. So don’t get hung up on grammatical details.
If it still seems like a daunting task to write the book, break the ebook up into sections or chapters, and knock them out one at a time. Think of it as writing short reports. Write a list of all the different areas you want to cover. Then write about them one at a time. Don’t stress about flow. You can move the order around later. The first step is the content. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to put it all together once you’ve got lots to work with.
If you still want an easier or different way to do it, hire someone else to write it for you. You can go to a site like elance.com and find a ghostwriter. Hundreds of marketers are releasing products every day using the above strategy. They didn’t write a word of it, and they not even an expert on the subject but they are still making profits from it! It’s the easiest way to start into this business and begin making money quickly!
