NAA’s Recommended To-Do-List for Creating an Ebook
A successful ebook is possible. However, we’ve found that a large majority of folks lack a solid plan of action. Without a plan, you have little direction and that could mean your well-intentioned project becomes a burden to you and your author.
When it comes to writing a successful ebook, you need to carefully lay out the ‘what’, ‘who’, and ‘how’.
- What are you trying to accomplish?
- Who are you writing it for?
- How should it be written?
Furthermore, there are likely to be some key elements that you want to cover in your ebook. Below, we have provided an outline that will help you effectively define your key points.
First, though, take a few minutes to answer those questions we just mentioned.
Let’s get started
Step 1 – What do you want to accomplish?
Explain in a paragraph or two what the aims and goals are for the ebook.
Step 2 – Who are your readers?
Who is your target market – the age group, gender, interests, habits, etc.?
Step 3 – How will it be written – tone or style – formal, informal, personal, upbeat, serious, etc.?
Explain, or if you have one, provide a sample.
Step 4 – Define your key points
This is your bulleted list of key points. Hone in on those points by listing methods, terms, ideas, opinions, or any information that would otherwise NOT be easily found during an Internet search. This is a good place to list them and then expand on them.
- Psychological triggers, habits, etc
- Add key point
