Ebooks are more popular than ever.
Thanks to the rise of the Kindle and phablet-style smartphones, we’re reading more Ebooks on our devices than ever before and shunning the traditional hardback. More than 266 million Ebooks were sold last year, and that figure is only set to rise as more people ‘go digital’ with books to save time, money, and the environment.
If you’ve considered writing your own Ebook, now is the time to do so. Below, we have put together five of the biggest reasons why, and share tips on making your Ebook a success…
Establish yourself as an expert
Perhaps one of the most obvious reasons why you should consider writing an Ebook is so that you can establish yourself as an expert. Whether you work in marketing, management, medical care or music, being able to say that you’re a published author is going to help to unlock new opportunities and take your career to the next level - even if your book is not an overnight hit. Indeed, Ebooks can open you up to speaking opportunities, blogging, and even television appearances, and will boost your authority and ‘personal brand’ in your niche.
Make connections and build relationships
Ebooks can help you forge business and personal relationships and alliances, which you can use to promote products and services or to share a hobby and make new friends. Writing an Ebook on a lesser-known hobby or niche, for example, will make you the ‘go to guy’ in that niche, and people will naturally come to you with questions and ideas, which you can use to take your business or hobby to the next level, and even turn into future Ebooks to sell online.
Create a new stream of passive income
The truth is that most Ebook authors aren’t millionaires, but you can make a decent passive income if you write an Ebook that people want to read. Promote your book online, use SEO so people can find your content when they search particular keywords and stay at the top of your game to generate a monthly revenue stream of a hundred dollars or two. If you’re lucky, your book could make it big time. Fifty Shades of Grey, for example, is now one of the most well-known books on the planet, but author E. L. James created them in her spare time and sold them as Ebooks. They were eventually picked up and turned into record-breaking Hollywood films, and the author is thought to be worth an eye-watering $95 million.
Unleash your creative spirit
We’re all creative in our own way, but if you’re stuck behind a desk working a mundane job, then life can often get in the way and force us to put our best ideas to the back of our minds. With an Ebook, you can be unapologetically you - writing about what you know and love, and creating your own stories. Whether you plan to write fiction or non-fiction, there are endless possibilities and you can take your book in whichever direction you’d like. No manager, no publicist, no rules - you can choose your own words and create a book unlike anyone else’s.
Immortalize your work
Writing an Ebook also allows you to immortalize your words, and put your thoughts, feelings, and expertise into (digital) print for all eternity. You could write a book in your twenties, for example, and look back on it in fifty years time to see how much has changed, or you could be in your twilight years and want to offer a ‘parting gift’, sharing your wisdom with the world. Having your own Ebook can be an ego boost and help you to give back to those around you.
There are countless reasons why you should consider writing your own Ebook, but let us leave you with this: if you’re still on the fence, just do it! The chances are that you’ve already got a great idea and a passion for writing, so put metaphorical pen to paper and see what happens. Whatever you write about, we hope you have fun and wish you the best of luck.
