Today's #SocialCafe Chat was about ebook writing and publishing.This #SocialCafe event sponsored, in part, by our wonderful friends at:
As Angela points out, writing, publishing, and promoting your ebook can be career-changing, and possibly life-changing. And, she should know, having started this journey before many others.
A1 - I started writing ebooks back in 2008 before they were even popular. No ereaders existed at that time.#socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
A1 That book was written in 2009, still before ereaders were popular, but added 5 figures to our income in 2010.#socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
I'm sure there are detractors, but, right now, it is nice to look at the benefits of writing your own ebook. Angela tweeted out her four benefits:
1) Increased subscribers. The UTH Manifesto has brought triple-digit newsletter subs each month since I started offering it. #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
2) Increased visibility and authority on your topic. I increased speaking gigs and consultation gigs as a result of my books. #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
3) Increased revenue. Not only can you gain revenue through book sales but also affiliate links, add on sales, etc. #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
4) Increased authority as a writer. A publisher knows not every blogger is capable of writing a full-length work. I had proof. #socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
As with any repetitive task, efficient methods emerge as we practice our art. Also, as Angela points out, our "message" may become clearer and we may be able to define our objectives and work smarter instead of harder.
A3 - Write the outline first. Definitely. The outline will be the key to overcoming distractions and delays.#socialcafe— AngEngland (@AngEngland) January 2, 2013
One common goal that emerged was writing that ebook!
