An eBook is a kind of book that is, high in demand nowadays. Due to the extreme demand for eBooks, many writers have started to contemplate writing eBooks as a niche. Both, the professional and home-based content writers can write an eBook owing to their skills in writing, but writing an exceptional eBook demands time from writers. In this post, I shall discuss with you the necessary steps that you need to take to come up with a prodigious eBook. Without further ado, let me take you straight towards the steps that you need to take to compile an exceptional book.
Step No. 1: Time is Money
In the first place, you need to make sure what your eBook is all about. To do this with rectification, you will need to spend time thinking about the matter that your eBook should contain. In the first place, you will need to create an outline. An outline for an eBook will depend on the topic about which you are writing an eBook. For instance, if you are writing an eBook about content writing recipes; then the outline of your eBook should encompass the necessary ingredients for content writing. Let me give you an idea as a freelance content writer for writing an outline about the eBook with the name, CONTENT WRITING RECIPES:
Make the title of an eBook first and introduce a tagline next to it.
Part 1: Introduce to the readers about yourself. (Author Biography).
Part 2: Present to the readers about what is content writing (Introduction).
Part 3: Start with the basics. (Tell a bit about Keywords & Search Engine Optimization)
Part 4: Ensure for whom you are writing content (Target Audience)
Part 5: Discuss how to create titles for pieces of work. (Catchy Headlines)
Part 6: Tell how to concise a pile of documents (Summary)
Part 7: Know how to begin your topic with triumph. (Perfect Introduction)
Part 8: Use connecting sentences to link different paragraphs. (Connectors)
Part 9: Perfectly end the topic that you are discussing. (Conclusion)
Part 10: Read your article time and again to eradicate errors. (Proofreading)
All of the above steps for writing an impeccable eBook will demand time from you. If you allocate a time period to the above ingredients for writing an eBook about content writing recipes, then compiling a phenomenal eBook will become a piece of cake for you.
Step No. 2: Spend Time on Research before You Compile an eBook
Before you start writing an eBook, I recommend that you spend sufficient time researching the topic and target audience of your eBook. For example, if your target audience is children; then you will need to deploy Infographics in your eBook. Why? Because children understand visuals by leaps and bounds than text. You will need to do thorough research about the topic of your eBook. Make sure that you research all the nuts and bolts related to your topic of an eBook. Suppose if the topic of your eBook is English Grammar, then you should research about the following things in detail:
- Sentences and Their Classification.
- Parts of Speech.
- Active and Passive Voice
- Direct and Indirect Narration
- Sentence Correction
- Essential Vocabulary (for Everyday Use)
- Idioms & Phrases (Popular Ones).
- Letter Writing
- Story Writing
- Essay Writing
Researching about the preceding topics will demand sufficient time from you. However, if you conduct a thorough research about the topic of your eBook, then you will be able to produce a wonderful eBook after your efforts.
Step No. 3: Time Will Become Your Ally to Compile an eBook after Research
After doing all the hard work through research, compiling a perfect eBook will become a child’s play for you. You will know what you need to talk about in your eBook after conducting in-depth research about the topic and target audience of your eBook. Here are the points that you need to keep in your mind while you write about the subject matter of your eBook:
- Be informal, as not every person in the world is highly educated. You need to make sure that your target audience comprehends what you want to tell them about. Please, do not use complicated words or sentences.
- Make use of humor if it fits with the subject of your eBook. The target audience of your eBook will feel fresh while reading your eBook if you utilize a bit of humor.
- Be informative. Make sure you deal with all the ins and outs of your topic in an eBook. Knowledge works as power, and many people in the world want it desperately.
- Make sure you convince your readers about the topic through arguments in your eBook. Remain persuasive to retain the attention of your target audience.
- If you are writing an eBook about a story, then you will need to adopt a narrative style of writing.
- Use references in your eBook if they boost the credibility of your eBook.
- After completing your eBook, you will need to check it for errors about 3 to 5 times. It is understood that eBooks with loads of errors mean you are not an exceptional author.
Step No. 4: Take Some Time to Enhance the Appearance of Your eBook
After you have finished writing an impeccable eBook, you will need to spend time to enhance its appearance. Choose the right template that fits best with the topic of your eBook. What about the colors? Make full use of the appropriate colors in your eBooks, as colors attract the readers to read any book, be it an eBook or a book. Incorporate visuals where you feel the need for them in your eBook. Also, make the most of famous quotes in your eBook if you think that they go well with the topic of your eBook. Encourage readers to buy your eBook by incorporating a CTA (Call to Action) on the cover page of your eBook. For example, a CTA can be as follows: Limited Edition Available. Buy Now!
Step No. 5: Spend Time to Finalize Your eBook
You will very likely be compiling your eBook as a Microsoft Word Document. After you have finished writing your eBook, you would want it to be in a readable format. So use the necessary software or tool to convert your eBook to PDF (Portable Document Format). You will need to do it, as eBook looks great in a readable form. This step will take lesser time than all of the other steps that I have discussed to compile an exceptional eBook.
