Writing eBooks for Money and Expert Status Part 1
Writing eBooks for Money - you’ve been talking about writing your book for how many years now?
Let me guess - you were excited and ready to write your book, yet you lost your motivation before you wrote the first paragraph.
I get it.
Without enough motivation, it’s easier to do nothing.
Think about the benefits a book will bring to your business. It positions you as an expert in your niche and reaches a wider audience. Adding your book to Amazon has huge perks.
Your only problem is that at some point, you dropped the desire to write. Or, perhaps you have created your outline with notes, but got stuck. Most likely you felt overwhelmed and just gave up.
Extra Benefits of Writing eBooks for Money
What is Your Writing eBooks for Money Goal?
This is probably the most important decision you will make. Without a goal, it makes it more challenging to write.
Your goal can be personal (“because I want to say I wrote a book!”), or all business (“because I want to give it to my clients as a bonus when they buy my program”).
With a writing goal, you can:
Getting Down to Business
If you have attempted to write an ebook before, but quit, you need to make sure that you don't repeat that cycle.
Put some accountability in place with milestones to keep you motivated. It's important that you don't give up when things become challenging.
Begin with the mindset that no matter what, you will not give up. Remember that when you stop short, you affect more than your confidence. You lose a potential revenue stream that can pull you from your 5-figure business to your 6-figure business.
Time to get serious.
Drill Down Your Message
For this process, you want to be very specific, not generalized.
Writing ebooks for money takes time and work, but you can do it! You can deliver a message to an audience that only you can deliver that message for.

Why Do You Think You Can Write a Book?
This is an obstacle within your mind. Your message is what only you can share. Get this clear, and your audience will ‘get’ you and become fans helping you spread your message. But you need to determine what your story is and why it matters.
Your topic can be a dramatic change, an internal mindset shift, or a personal ‘why’ behind your passion.
Goals, Deadlines and Time Management
Whether you are creating a 25-page lead magnet or a 400-page book, you must create a writing schedule. If you don’t, your book will never be completed. Make it goal-driven and have an immovable deadline.
Do not set yourself up for failure. Only you know the best time to schedule your writing days and times. You can aim for a certain word count by ‘x’ date, or set up a certain amount of time to write, such as a 45-minute block of time.
Best Way to Promote Your Book
The best way to promote your book is something you have to determine for your book and niche.
