How to Write an eBook

He who allows himself to be halted by the first difficulty in his path does not go far in lifeThe hardest part of writing an eBook is the very first sentence.

When you look at the entire project, it looks like an impossible job. That’s why you have to simplify the process into manageable tasks. Think of it like climbing a mountain. When you are standing at the foot of it and looking up at its summit disappearing into the clouds doubts creep in and you think to yourself ‘How can I possibly scale such an immense and unsafe mountain?’

There is only one way to climb up the mountain? step by step; a step at a time.

Now consider writing your eBook in the very same light. You can only produce it step by step, until finally, you write the last sentence  and you are done- You now find yourself standing on the summit with your head in the clouds.

The first thing you have to do, as if you really were a mountain climber, is to get organized. Instead of climbing equipment, you need to organize your thoughts.

There are a series of steps that you should take before you start. Once as you’ve Continue reading

The Greatest Mistake I Made Last Year

My Greatest Mistake of Last Year

Today’s post is about something I have struggled with on a regular basis.

At the end of each year I like to take some time to reflect upon the past year in hopes of improving the next year.

Although I was able improve on some things during the past year, I feel that I still failed in one category the past year…

And that is FOCUS.

Consider the simple fact that photographs are clearer when they are in focus. When they are out of focus, they are blurry and indistinct.  The same applies to our businesses and our lives in general.

It always amazes me how unfocused people are (myself included). Ask someone to describe what Continue reading

How to Create a Checklist

Following on from my previous post ‘Motivation Issues? – Try Some of These Strategies‘  where I discussed creating checklists I talked about Kevin Fahey’s IM CHECKLIST where you can get hold of some really great checklists on a range of different topics including Email Marketing, Product Creation, Affiliate Marketing, Newbie Marketing, Messenger Marketing, Outsourcing, ClickBank and a lot more, I decided that I will provide you with the steps or process to create your own checklists.

Motivation Issues? Try Some of These Strategies.

Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs

Strategies to remain engaged in your online business

Today we are going to talk about some strategies that you may find useful to remain engaged in your online business and avoid burnout.

You’re finally doing it. For many years you’ve wanted to work from home and you are finally doing it.

You are no longer a worker who has a “J O B” – the acronym for Just Over Broke; you are now a company owner, self-employed, ruler of your own destiny AND you have actually inherited all the obligations that feature in owning a business:

The person who is trying to build a one person operation home business must wear many hats. If you are going to be successful, you must be aware of and pay attention to every aspect of your business.

  • You are the project manager, the supervisor and the job organizer
  • You are the time keeper
  • You are the marketer
  • You are the product developer and service provider
  • You are the support department; and

And the list goes on and on.

Regrettably, as a self-employed business owner, you cannot only choose when to work, but also when NOT to work. And this can be a genuine issue.

It is so easy to simply play hooky on a nice day and choose to head off to the golf course or to the local fishing hole instead of opening your laptop.

As a business owner, there are so many things that you need to Continue reading

Mistakes to Avoid When You Market Through Storytelling

Marketing is not a task

How to Write a Landing Page that Converts

Many people have no (or just the slightest) idea on how to go about writing a landing page that converts. Rather, they slop together components that they have seen utilized on other landing pages.  However, they generally do not put them together in the same manner as the owner of the successful landing page did.  It’s more like Frankenstein’s monster; a bit from this landing page and another piece from a different landing page.

One significant issue is copy.  And that’s fine.  Not everyone is going to be an excellent writer– never mind a copywriter. However, as somebody selling a product or service or trying to build a list, it is essential that you understand your strengths and weak points and that you either spend some time to overcome your weaknesses or Continue reading

Introduction to Landing and Squeeze Pages

Before you begin the effort to develop a successful list or develop a powerful sales page, you will want to start with a thorough introduction to landing pages.  In plain contrast to undifferentiated, unfocused home pages, landing pages focus particularly on capturing leads for a newsletter or making sales for a specific product– and make no attempt to give visitors a various alternative.

PageDynoAnother typical word that is frequently utilized to describe landing page, is “squeeze page” (or a “lead capture page”). A capture page is a page created and designed to get names and e-mail addresses.  A squeeze page is usually typically a smaller type of landing page, which normally has an opt-in form in sight when the page loads.

So what are the important lesson learned from this introduction to landing/squeeze pages?
