3 Tips For Writing
Your First Short Report Fast
Writing a mini ebook, or short report can be life changing. It can generate a continuous stream of income for you. Taking the first step can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. Whether your goal is to create a career writing e-books or create a secondary income stream, it's not as difficult as you might think.
So, lets agree, before we continue, that writing these little reports can be...
- financially rewarding
- a bit of a challenge
- and yet, easier than you think.
Ready to move on? OK then... Good!
Many writers are quick to realize that there is an income potential present, but just as many have not yet started to do anything about it yet. There can be a number of reasons for this, but one of the biggest reasons is thinking you won't have enough time.
Don't worry, you really can make the time to make this happen if you truly want to earn money from your mini-ebook adventures.
The second most common complaint is coming up with a topic for your short report. The most common mistake is for a writer to pick a topic they believe will be popular rather than doing some research to see what the market wants.
Here Are 3 Short Report Strategies To Get You Headed In The Right Direction Fast!
Think About The Blogs And Books You Already Read
Are you trying to decide what type of topic you could write & what topic you have enough knowledge in? Then look at what type of blogs, books, and magazines you read.
This will give you a good idea about what topics interest you and a good place to start.
If you are not interested in the topic, you probably won't stick with it for very long, and this will show up in your writing.
Avoid Topics That Make Money, If They Are Simply Too Boring
Certain topics seem like a great choice because they are doing well, there is a demand for them and that means there is money to be made.
Don't write a book only because you believe it's going to make money. There are so many things that can go wrong with this philosophy.
- There might already too much competition,
- It can be that only one or two author are selling,
- It can be a temporary market increase.
- There are many other reasons, far too many to mention here, but the biggest being... You Might Not Enjoy This Kind Of Empty & Short-lived Success!
It is much better if you choose a topic that you have good knowledge on and that you would like to write about. This will save you a great deal of time researching and increase the likelihood that you finish writing the book and have the opportunity to enjoy its success.
Take Advantage of Your Current Audience
Do you have a newsletter? Maybe a blog? If you do you are ahead of many others because you can tailor your e-book to this existing audience that you already have. This can be a great place to find ideas that will work.
These three tips are a great start for your e-book. So what are you waiting for? Start writing.
