It is important when writing a book to remember that a book doesn’t have to be 300 pages long. Many successful book and e-book writing careers began with a short 40 – 100 page book. That being said here’s how to write a book and publish it quickly in three simple steps.
Step # 1 Identify a niche.
Find a group of people that are in need of specific information. It can be anything really. You can write a book on how to feed your guinea pig an organic home made diet or you can write a book on how to add 10 years to your life. The ideas and options are endless. Find a niche that is seeking information and write a book for them.
You might be wondering, how do I find a niche? How do I find out what kinds of information are in demand? Good question. There are many tools that you can use. Overture and Google both offer keyword tools. You can utilize these tools to learn how many people are looking for information using certain keywords. For example if you’re thinking about writing a book on adding ten years to your life then you can look at keywords and keyword phrases that people might use to find that information.
- extending your life
- living longer
- adding years to your life
Once you’ve determined your niche, you can move on to step number two.
Step # 2 Identify a problem and then solve it.
Book selling is as much about solving a problem and providing a benefit as it is about writing. Your book has to provide a benefit to your reader. It has to solve a problem. Continuing with the living longer topic that in and of itself is a problem. People don’t want to die and living longer is generally an appealing concept. But you can take it a step further.
What other problems or concerns might people in this niche have? Maybe they want to live longer but they don’t want to change their diet or lifestyle too much. Maybe they want to live longer but they want to be strong and vibrant in their last years not just alive.
Now you’ve identified two potential problems for your target niche, use your book to solve them. Write a book about How to live longer without sacrificing your current quality of life or How to live longer, stronger and better starting today.
Step # 3 Market your e-book directly to your niche
E-books are the fastest way to make your book available to your niche. There are no printing costs and promotion, when you have a targeted niche, it is fairly straightforward. There are several tools that you can use to market directly to your niche and we go into detail in our book “101 Reasons Why You Must Write A Book. How To Make A 6 Figure Income By Writing & Publishing Your Own Book”.
Here are a just a few of the marketing tools you can use:
- Direct mail
- Press releases
- Free Articles and reports
- Speaking engagements
Once you have an audience for your e-book you can make it available in print and audio and you can further expand the information available on your website. In fact, the sale of your e-books can finance the printing costs of the second edition or for your next book. Now the question for you should be not how to write a book and publish it but when to write a book and publish it!
