Some business owners may think that writing an ebook is hard or that ebook marketing is dead. Well I want to assure that writing an ebook is not that hard and that ebook marketing is a live and a great way to create credibility for you and your business.
So let's talk about some ways to create an ebook. First thing you should know is that if you have any kind of skill set you can turn that into an ebook. I've written 7 books of which 4 of them are on Amazon as printed books and ebooks. I write about things that I know. When I write the first thing I do is create my book cover, because this leads me down the path of what I will put in the book. Now everyone has their own way of doing things. When it comes to writing books I need to see the end product first. Then I create an outline for what will go in the book. Almost all of my books are at least 75 pages. Which is great, because people are busy and don't want to read a 300 page book. I have a book right now that I believe is probably a great book, but it is over 300 pages I will probably never read it, because I don't have the time.
Another good thing about writing an ebook is that you can repurpose content that you already have and expand on it. You will probably have enough content for an ebook. I just recently launched my new podcast called Impact Marketing. I already know that this will be turned into a book, so I'm very intentional about the topics I share on the podcast. I make sure that the podcast is at least 10 minutes because every one minute in audio is about 130 written words, so 10 minutes of audio will be about 1,000 to 1,300 words. Most ebooks are about about 25 pages which is about 5,000 words. I know that I'm writing books, but I could easily break down my podcast into 3 or 4 episodes and turn those into ebooks. As I write this I just may do that. Anyway, once you've written your ebook announce it to the press and also share it on your social media. People still love to read and ebooks are a great source of not only education, but also entertainment. For some it's a way to relax. As a business owner ebooks are a great way for you to create credibility and exposure for your business.
Now if you still need more information about how to create an ebook, I know for a fact that there is a ton of information out there for you to study. If you can't find a resource to help you let me know and I will schedule a class on how to get it done.

Small businesses who are on a marketing budget can take a quick lesson from Taco Bell. There was a story today about Taco Bell creating at home taco kits that people can purchase that would feed 6 people for $25. Now here's where good marketing kicks in. Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo which is also Taco Tuesday. I'm sure that the marketing team was sitting around when they realized that Cinco De Mayo actually fell on Taco Tuesday and viola' the Taco Kit was born.
