An eBook is an abbreviation of qelectronic bookq - a book or any text, poetry, short story etc that is saved in digital form and made available to read on electronic devices like a laptop or desktop computer, a handheld computer, a smartphone or a dedicated eReading device, like a NOOK or a Kindle. With constant ventures appearing in the field of technology, reading and writing a book is no longer limited to libraries and publishers. Self-Publishers are very commonplace in online bookstores like Amazon, because of the introduction of the eBook. Although an eBook is a digital format and it is not printed, you can easily have your eBook set to aprint-on-demanda for a low set up cost, with companies like Createspace.com or Lulu.com, if you wanted to sell your eBook in hard copy as well in digital format. The eBook has made book creation much simpler than it was in the olden days. Now, you can easily create your own eBook at home, work or anywhere you please, and anyone can do it, you donat have to wait for a large publishing company to pick up your project anymore. While some people like their books all wordy and technical, others enjoy reading an eBook thatas full of pictures and colours. Another reason behind the increased popularity of picture eBooks is their ability to teach and inform people through images rather than just words. Plus, picture eBooks are also helpful in teaching kids about a fact or a place. Children these days are maturing quickly and display the desire to use modern technology more and more. Therefore, creating a picture eBook can help them understand things and stories at a higher level. There are many opportunities and reasons people want to create picture eBooks, hereas some examples: - Wedding or Engagement Photos - Childrenas Books - Family Heirloom Photo Collection - Holiday Snaps - Sporting Event Collection - Birthdays and other celebrations What are the main challenges for people wishing to create Picture eBooks? The two main challenges to create Picture eBooks are: 1. Finding or creating the aright imagesa or illustrations to use in your eBook; and 2. Formatting the eBook when completed to suit the various online publishing platforms like Kindle, Nook and iBooks. There are of course, other things that eBook creators may struggle with, including: - What to write? - Topics to write about? - Fiction or non-fiction? However, this eBook is assuming you have already achieved the above challenges and merely need assistance with your pictures and/or illustrations. Technically you could outsource all of the challenges, even the writing, but most people may prefer to do this work themselves and save some money. Itas no secret that publishing your eBook online can make you a lot of money, but it would be the exception to the rule. Most people make very little money from their eBooks, and some donat even cover their costs. Therefore you may want to create some of your own illustrations for your childrenas books to save some money. How do you create an online income from writing eBooks? The real key to earning a good income from your eBook creation is: 1. Building up a business with many publications over time; and 2. Having a unique and quality product with great promotion and marketing strategy in place. Both of the above akeysa require patience and training. You can buy eBooks yourself which will help you with these akeysa, and most people do, but there is no real aget rich quicka strategy with eBooks. And there are also elements of alucka or achancea which you canat anticipate either. Beware of internet marketers who preach they have the asecreta to making money with eBooks, there are no secrets, if itas a new atricka, it will be short lived if they are asellinga the formula. I encourage you to take the time to write a business plan for your eBook business and develop a marketing strategy over time. Donat forget your branding, if you intend to make a career of writing eBooks, including picture eBooks, then branding your range of books can lead to cross-promotions, marketing opportunities (including aBook stackinga where you sell three books as one for a discounted price a Amazon now allow this) and other online product sales opportunities. aContent is Kinga and aPresentation is Queena, so build a useful, popular range of books on established well-selling topics, and you will build a long term business. If your eBook business strategy includes Picture eBooks, you will no doubt be frustrated most by the formatting issues. Read this eBook, implement the advice, and most importantly keep abreast of new developments with formatting and techniques as often discussed in online forums like Pat Flynnas First Kindle eBook FaceBook Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/357112331027292/ Forums and online websites like Patas always include ways of asking questions and seeing the challenges the other eBook creators are also facing. Promoting and Marketing your eBooks There is no quick formula to promoting your eBook. Many eBooks have been written on this topic alone, however, in a broad sense you should: 1. WHO are your target demographic readers? 2. WHAT are they looking for that you can offer, and no one else is (eg. Your USP a Unique Selling Propositiona)? 3. WHEN can your readers get the benefit of your eBook? 4. WHERE are they buying those eBooks and for how much? 5. WHY and HOW will your target demographic find and purchase your eBook online? Because this eBook is not about the 5Ws, I donat intend to address them here. Suffice to say you should still try to write out the answers to these questions (at the very least) if you are still devising your eBook Marketing Plan.Technically you could outsource all of the challenges, even the writing, but most people may prefer to do this work themselves and save some money.
