Brainstorming Possible Topics For Your Ebook

While brainstorming, keep in mind that your objective is to come up with as many ideas as you can (think quantity, not quality at this stage of the process), that you shouldn’t judge, evaluate, or criticize the ideas that you come up with at this point, and that you can come up with a lot of ideas that are closely related, as well as ideas that initially may seem farfetched.

Here are some ways to start brainstorming about topics you could write about:

Inventory of Your Knowledge, Skills, and Talents

  • What are your innate talents (your information product can be based on explaining a process you normally perform very well)?
  • What skills do you use in your job?
  • What did you study in college? What additional courses/seminars have you taken?
  • What do you enjoy reading or learning about? What types of magazines do you like to read?
  • What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? What are your hobbies?
  • What types of major purchases have you made?
  • Do you have pets? How do you care for them?
  • Are you a parent? Can you provide valuable insight into some aspect of parenting?
  • Do your friends and family generally ask you for help in any one particular area?
  • Have you overcome a problem in your life that others may be having? For example, have you found ways to deal with a difficult boss, gotten over a cheating spouse, found the courage to back to school after age 40, and so on?

What Are Your Blog Readers Saying?

  • If you have a blog, which are your most popular blog posts? Can you elaborate on them?
  • Again, if you have a blog, what questions are your readers frequently asking you in the comments section or through emails? Consider polling your readers and asking them what they would be interested in learning more about.

Visit Clickbank and Amazon

  • Find topics for ebooks-or even printed books-that people are buying right now, and enter the market yourself. To find popular ebooks visit the Clickbank Marketplace (they let you sort by popularity). And, of course, to see which topics are selling well in printed books, visit

Visit How-To Sites

  • Visit web sites people go to in order to learn how to do things, such as ehow. Which are popular topics in which you either have expertise, or you’re willing to do the necessary research to be able to write well about the subject and provide value? Here are some examples of problems people might be trying to solve:
  • How to Avoid Credit Card Scams How to Incorporate Your Small Business How to GrowYour Own Herbs How to Manage Your Time in College The Bachelor’s Guide to Cooking Quick, Healthy Meals

Will Video Tutorials Explode Your Business?

Website promotion used to be a simple process before all the Web 2.0 processes exploded audio and video across the Internet. In what seemed like overnight, sales pages expanded their horizons until audio and video promotions became standard on thousands of websites.

While mixing your marketing focus is always a good idea, video tutorials are making an unstoppable impact on what used to be a text based search and find process. There’s a couple of major benefits to both you and your customers that should not be ignored or taken for granted when you are considering promoting with videos.

Tutorials have long been popular with those looking for instruction or steps to do something. Video tutorials have become one of the hottest online attractions in a flood of information processing techniques. What’s that mean to you? Let me explain.

Downloadable ebooks took the Internet by storm several years ago and created virtual home industries for creating and selling them. They were a Godsend to those searching for information on niche topics or quick solutions to problems. The shortcoming with ebooks, though, was their text base, requiring reading sessions, either on monitors or after printing 40-60 pages. Thousands bought them, but few followed through and actually read them.

Video tutorials have displaced some ebooks and are taking the Internet Marketing scene by storm. There’s two main benefits to consider carefully before you dismiss videos as valuable promotion tools that will increase your sales page conversions considerably.

For your customers, video tutorials fill the need for your readers who need one of the three different types of stimulation to absorb your message. The videos are heaven-made for visual learners or readers. You don’t have to paint pictures with words to get their attention…just show them. Make your presentation come alive with examples of what you are talking about.

Auditory readers need to hear your message in order to understand and be stimulated to provide the response you want. Make your presentations interesting by letting your own passion for your topic shine through your voice. Use a conversational tone to explain the process or product you are promoting. Don’t skip steps in your verbal presentation, thinking your audience will get it from the bulleted list you are showing on the video. Your auditory readers will not get it.

The tactile readers in your audience need to touch and feel what they are expected to learn. While this might be difficult in your video presentation, there are solutions that will fill the gap for you. A simple solution would be with your choice of words. Use action words that can reach their emotions with tangible perceptions, like “Do you feel…?” “Take your customers by the hand and show them…” or “Get a notepad and write this down!” You might want to consider offering a downloadable short report for those who want to hold something real in their hands.

For you, the Internet Marketer, video tutorials are easy to make with any of the popular video creation software packages available. You don’t need a studio or fancy equipment to do a good job promoting your own business. Your costs would be minimal for a very powerful effect on your conversion rate, way cheaper than what you can spend on AdWords.

But, the best reason for using video tutorials has been saved for the last. Your videos can be uploaded to almost any of the social bookmarking sites, like YouTube, and get spread across the globe in a very short time. Viral marketing is a proven business booster and videos on any subject that get downloaded and uploaded all day long are definitely viral.

They also can reach millions of viewers every day. What’s not to like?

Although writing an eBook can appear to be a daunting task, there are several things you can do to both simplify your work and make your eBook more readable for your audience. To that end, here are ten tips to keep in mind while writing your ebook:

1. In your introduction answer the following question: “What is the ebook’s purpose?”

2. Keep your readers in mind as you write. Are you giving them value? Envision your ideal reader and ask yourself what they would want to know about this topic. Are you making the reading experience easy and enjoyable for them?

3. Break up the length and structure of your sentences and paragraphs to make sure that your writing doesn’t become monotonous.

4. Give your readers’ eyes a break by leaving sufficient white space.

5. Indented quotes and examples, as well as section and sub-section headings, will help you keep your readers’ attention.

6. Make use of lists, both bulleted and numbered.

7. Find a font that’s easy to read and stick to that font family. You don’t want to use too many fonts and get “the ransom note look”.

8. Judy Cullins explains in “Write Your Own eBook or Other Short Story Book – Fast” that you should open each chapter with a hook that grabs your reader’s attention. You can do this with a few thought-provoking questions or shocking facts that relate to your readers’ problems. In addition, each chapter’s title should be clear, concise, and compelling.

9. Cullins also advices that as you write you keep in mind “Essential Hot Selling Points for Each Chapter”. This will help you write more focused, compelling copy, and it will help you get ready to market and promote your eBook even as you’re writing it.

10. As William Zinsser advices: “[T]he secret of good writing is to strip every sentence to its cleanest components. Every word that serves no function, every long word that could be a short word, every adverb that carries the same meaning that’s already in the verb, every passive construction that leaves the reader unsure of who is doing what – these are the thousand and one adulterants that weaken the strength of a sentence.”
