Creating Your First Website by 3:45 This Afternoon – EBook Review

Create a website – can you do this? If someone asked you about creating a website what would be your answer? “Yes, I’d really like to know how to do that but I haven’t the faintest idea how to go about it.” Or something along those lines.

A lot of website creation pages have loads of information but if you don’t know what the terms mean and how they fit into the website creation picture, odds are that they really will mean little to you. One site about website creation that I looked at had 17 clickable articles. Information overload!! It happens. You click on one article which leads to another article which leads to another article and so on till you totally lose the thread of the first article.

When you see the terms html, web editor, zip files, public_html, DNS settings and index.html what do you think? “Yikes! I can’t understand any of those terms”. Perhaps you think it would be too difficult and give up trying to find out how to create a website.

No, No and No. You needn’t do that at all. If I could point you to a place where you can find out the basics of website creation delivered in a very informative, easy to understand FREE, yes FREE, eBook, would you take a look? I think you probably would.

You can even take a sneak peak at 20 or so pages of the eBook before you submit your email address. How cool is that? Pretty neat eh? Chris, the guy who wrote the fabulous little eBook, literally takes you by the hand and shows you EXACTLY what to do in a very friendly non-condescending manner. Interested?

To start, you will be told where to get a domain name and where to get it hosted. Most website creation tutorials will tell you about domains and hosting. It is pretty basic stuff. (I have a little secret about how you can go about getting free hosting for almost unlimited domains but you won’t know about that until a little later on. And I mean free hosting minus the ads. Got your interest now haven’t I?)

However, do you know about web editors? You will be shown where to download a free editor, how to unzip the folders and how and where to save them. It is really important that you unzip folders as you won’t be able to use them if you don’t.

There are nice big arrows on the screen shots with big yellow boxes saying “LOOK” in huge letters, ‘add here’ and ‘save here’ etc. and so on. You can’t miss them. It even shows you what window will pop up on your screen so you know you are on the right track. This is good stuff. Agree? In fact it is 120+ pages of jolly amazing stuff.

Then you get to the exciting part – wait for it! – creating your first web page. Tada. If you don’t think it is going to be a real thrill to see how your first web page will look on the internet, (Yes, you are even shown how to do that!) then don’t bother reading any further.

It is definitely a YIPPEE! WOW! moment. Even if your web page is so basic it would embarrass you to let anyone see it, it is still a huge thrill. Every little step is explained in chattily encouraging detail. There is no chance of misunderstanding what you need to do. Really important points are mentioned such as saving your work at every stage and keeping things all together in one folder.

This is just a small selection of what you can learn in this fantastic little eBook. Things such as testing your web page, changing fonts, adding images, resizing pages, adding other pages and even linking to other websites are also part and parcel of what you get.

Making it Big With Ebooks – Tips to Generate Profit

Writing your own eBook is not only satisfying, it can also help you generate huge income. Many internet marketers find that they don’t make nearly enough money promoting someone else’s products. This is why many of them venture into writing their own ebooks. Writing your own eBook is the easiest way to introduce yourself to product creation on the internet.

How do you go about writing an ebook?

There are many different ways to create your own ebook; here are just a few tips. Your first eBook topic should be something you are interested in. Being interested in the topic will help you to create a product that is both helpful and enjoyable. Always make sure to do your research. What I mean by this is make sure the market is hungry for what you’re about to serve. You can find this out by doing keyword research. It also helps to go to forums and talk personally with people who have interest in your niche. This will give you a better idea of what people are looking for, usually a problem that they need a solution for.

The best laid plans are thought out

It is always a smart idea to plan your eBook before you start writing. Decide what areas you will be touching on in your niche. What problems will you be discussing and how you can find answers. It is best to do all your research first and then organize the information into sections. By planning and organizing your information you simplify the process which will help make your writing go smoother.

Use the outline method

Remember in public school when you had to write an outline for your stories? While believe it or not you can now actually use that information. Making an outline will help you to channel and flow your thoughts together. This will make it easier for the reader to follow your thoughts and understand your overall message. The hardest part of writing an eBook is the research and planning stage. But if you’re organized and have a plan set out it will take no time to get your eBook on the market.

How to Turn Your Ebook Into an Ecourse in 7 Easy Steps and Make More Online Profits

Creating and selling eBooks on the Internet is a great way to start generating passive income; however, you can take that same content and turn it into a profitable eCourse and double, triple or quadruple your income!

Let’s first take a look at what an eCourse is. It is basically another form of an information product. Information products come in many forms such as DVD’s, CD’s, Special Reports, eBooks, Video tutorials, etc. An eCourse is “information” delivered to your customer in a unique way.

So let’s say you already have an eBook and your selling it on your website for $19. If your goal is to make $1000 a month in passive income from your eBook, then you would need to sell 53 copies of your eBook each and every month. However, you can take that same “content”, add more information and more benefits to it, and now you can sell your eCourse for $97, $197, $297, $497, $997 or $1997 depending on what benefits you add to it. With this higher price point, you can make $1000 online with just a few sales every month.

The key to remember is: “eCourses are just eBooks with benefits!”

I’ve been teaching online courses (eCourses) for almost a decade and the following is my blueprint for getting started turning your eBooks into eCourses.

Step 1: First, you must have a great topic that sells. In other words, if you aren’t making any sales with your eBook, then turning it into an eCourse isn’t going to work either. Make sure you have a topic that people are looking for online, that it solves a problem, and that they are willing to pay money for.

Step 2: You must have your own website to sell your eCourses from. So make sure you have a well-designed website that has an opt-in form to capture names and email addresses.

Step 3: Build Your List. You may already have an existing list for your eBook which would be great, because you can then send an email to your list when your eCourse is ready to be launched.

Step 4: Take your eBook and convert it into weekly “lessons” or “modules”. Read through your eBook and break it down into Lessons and maybe even add some “assignments” to the lessons. Save each one of these lessons as a separate word document (that you will convert to PDF later).

Step 5: Make sure you have a nice cover page for your eBook. Get a graphics design person to create a cover for your eCourse.

Step 6: Add benefits. This is key! This is why you can charge a lot more for your material. Here is what I recommend adding (choose whatever you like): eCoaching, phone coaching, bonus material, membership to a website, video tutorials, eBooks, or any other type of material that will add to the eCourse. If you offer an eCourse with video tutorials and eCoaching during the course (say a 6-week course) then you can easily charge $97 to $297 depending on your topic.

Step 7: Automate the process. You don’t want to do this manually. You want to automate the process so that when someone goes to your website and signs up for your course, then your materials is delivered weekly to their inbox. Remember, we are trying to create “passive” income streams”: Do the work once, get paid over and over. However, if you add on eCoaching or individual coaching then you will need to put some time into it, but the profits will be greater.

There you have it…7 steps to turning your eBook into a profitable eCourse and making more online profits!
