3 Ways to Excel with E-Books

Anybody who’s heard my story knows I’m a big believer in support systems.

Because without the support of the writers I’ve met through AWAI … I really don’t think I would have stuck to my dream to be a writer, much less ever landed a paid assignment.

There’s untold value in being able to reach out to someone who’s come before you, learned from his or her mistakes, and is willing to give you a leg up in whatever mountain you want to climb.

The same holds true if you’re ready to build an income by writing e-books.

Bob Bly is probably the best person to learn from, since he holds the title for generating sky-high e-book profits in very little time. So I heartily recommend checking out Bob Bly’s Ultimate Guide to E-Book Writing Success: A Comprehensive Program to Writing and Selling E-Books for Profit.

When you do that, you’ll get access to a private forum of e-book writers. It’s made up of writers just like you who are looking to build massive passive incomes from their e-book projects.

So, if you have a question that comes up along the way, somebody will be there to answer it. Bob Bly himself even fields some of the questions that surface on the forum.

Now, my tried-and-true formula for succeeding at any writing goal is this:

  1. Make a goal and state it publicly. I’m a big fan of telling supportive friends and family members, along with your writing community. (In fact, you can share your goal with me here.)
  2. Reach out to a support system of fellow writers who share similar goals. This is where the private e-book writer’s forum becomes so crucial.
  3. Put yourself on a regular writing schedule. That may mean you work 30 minutes every day on your e-book, or four hours every Saturday and Sunday, or a solid three days a week. It has to fit your lifestyle.

Once you have a goal, support, and a writing schedule you can stick to, you’ll be able to plug in all the other things you’ve done this week—like choosing your topic and setting up your marketing plan.

And from there?

Easy. You start building a terrific passive income through e-book writing based on a topic you enjoy.

  1. Hi Mindy,

    It is a time of transition for me. Last week I was working 3 part-time jobs. I left one to devote more time to studying copywriting.

    Therein lies my most fundamental goal. I want more time to do things I enjoy. Playing music, hiking with my dog, studying and practicing photography.

    I look forward to gaining my first paid copywriting "gig" and to improving my skills. In the next week or so I will sit down, really examine my goals and find a niche or two.

    Onward and upward!

  2. Hi Mindy:

    Great series and thank you!

    My main goal this year is to continue to concentrate on writing eBooks, and seriously market them via as many channels as possible.

    I currently have 3 eBooks on Amazon Kindle, one of which may be of interest to your readers, if they write and wish to publish their own eBooks.

    It is called: 'How to Publish Your eBook on Amazon Kindle: A Super Easy Step-by-Step Method Using Simple Software.'

    I also have a webinar that I have given, and would do again.

  3. Dear Mindy. I almost feel like I know you as you appear in my in-box regularly. Something about this article has resonated with me and seeing that you have invited people to share their writing goals with you, I would like to share mine.

    My goal is to write an e-book that will sell, at least 2 copies...(I am just a beginning writer), but I am struggling so much with picking the right subject. My problem is that I have many varied interests, but not enough in-depth knowledge about any of it. (They call me Jack-of-all-trades.) I have been through trying to list all my interest and writing pro-and-con lists, but everytime, I feel that by choosing just one, I am neglecting the others.(Not really sure if that makes sense). Maybe you have any ideas on how to sort out my "schitzophrenic" mind so that I can eventually become productive.

    Best regards,

    Angie Weiss

  4. Hi Mindy, I'm writing to let you know that I've completed my first e-book! I have published it on my web site: richardssmithcopywriting dot com I have learned much about research, revising, revising, revising and revising some more, lol!
    I love writing about environmental issues, going green for folks who want to but feel overwhelmed.
    Thank you for the great info!
