Wanting to learn how to create an eBook to sell on Kindle publishing or some other e-commerce platform?
Good for you!
Not only can making money selling eBooks be a great way to earn passive income, but eBooks can be used to attract more customers to your business, build your email list with new subscribers, and raise awareness about your products or services.
Today, learning how to create an eBook is easier than ever before. So, let’s delve into how you can easily put one together to start making you money or attract new customers to your business.
*I wish to be transparent with my readers. Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. If you click on the link and make a purchase, I will earn a small commission.
One way how to create an eBook is to use Canva, an online graphic design website. Canva is great for people who have no design skills and best of all, it’s completely free!
For example, I made my ebook “A Skincare Guide to Preventing Cystic Acne” using the free version.
If you would like to gain access to their premium features, you can always upgrade to Pro.
Otherwise, the free version is more than enough to create a beautifully designed eBooks for online distribution.
With Canva, ideally you want to already have your content written because essentially you are going to copy and paste your work into one of the templates and save your completed eBook as a PDF.
Their library of templates makes the process of creating an eBook super easy where users can have the ability to customize the look, feel, and theme of their book.
What’s more, you can choose from 1,000,000 stock photos for your eBook and book cover, or upload your own. However, if you have a specific idea for your eBook cover and/or images, but you are not a graphic designer, you can always go to Fiverr to hire someone to design one for you starting at $5.00.
What’s nice about Designrr is that not only can you write and create eBooks for kindle publishing, but you can easily import content you already have from your website, blog posts, podcasts, videos, and social media to create an eBook.
I created my 2nd ebook, “The Best 21 Tips to Prevent Acne” with Designrr.
So, if this is you, basically you already have an eBook right at your fingertips! All you need to do now is simply import your best content.
Plus, with Designrr you are not limited to just kindle publishing for your eBook. You can also publish your eBook on ePub and Mobi, which means more exposure and more opportunity to increase sales.
Watch this video to see how easy it is to import existing content to create multiple eBooks in a matter of minutes.
But…what it you don’t already have content for your eBook or don’t have an idea for one?
Did you know that there are guides to help write your eBook? One guide even shows you how to write and publish it within 24 hours.
YES, you read that correctly!
With 24 Hour Book, you can have a complete eBook ready to promote and sell to your audience in as little as a day.
This is perfect for budding authors looking for a step-by-step guide on how to create an eBook from fellow YouTube content creator, author, and marketer Stephan James. Stephan has written several kindle publishing eBooks himself and has made thousands of dollars doing so where he’s confident he can help you do the same using his formula.
So, if you ever marveled over the idea “how to create an eBook” and “how to get Amazon Kindle publishing,” Stephan’s method can show you how in just 24 hours.
Of course, you are not obligated to complete your eBook within 24 hours-lol. You can take as much time as you need.
However, if you are eager to start creating your own eBook and make money right away, watch this video and see how 24 Hour Book can help you do it, even if you think you’re not a good writer.
This last option will cost you some money, BUT hold on!!
If you have the extra funds to outsource your eBook for kindle publishing, you can build a business for yourself and become a publisher. Not just an author who only wrote 1, 2 or 5 eBooks…
…but a publisher who publishes 100’s of books.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty cool!
Outsourcing a professional to write your eBook is a very nice option for people who don’t want to, who don’t have the time, or who don’t have the existing content for an eBook.
Besides, why not let someone else research all the material on your chosen topic and ghostwrite the eBook for you? Best-selling authors and celebrities do it all the time.
So can you!
Moreover, as a publisher you are not limited to writing eBooks that are only relevant to your niche like with bloggers, business owners, podcasters, or YouTubers. To explain, it would be strange if a beauty blogger published an eBook about video games and tried promoting this to her audience, right?
However, this is not the case with a publisher.
Therefore, as a publisher, you can create as many eBooks as you want…on any topic you want for kindle publishing.
To get started, be sure to do your research for outsourcing a quality ghostwriter for your eBook. I highly recommend not hiring someone who is not a native English speaker. The last thing you want is to put out an eBook that’s riddled with broken English; especially if you intend to attach your name onto the finished product.
To add, you want to make sure the writer will compose 100% original work that’s edited, proofread, and preferably formatted for Kindle. If it’s not formatted for Kindle, you can always lay out the content in Canva or Designrr and have a virtual assistant do the work for you.
If you like the idea of being a publisher remember, you want your books to be as professional and as of high quality as possible, so don’t just hire anyone.
Some sites where you can interview and hire writers include Upwork, Odesk, or companies like The Writing Summit. You can also do a Google search for freelance ghostwriters or for companies specializing in ghostwriting services.
Keep in mind, the more you pay for a ghostwriter, the better the work. Still, you can initially invest just $30-$100 to get started with publishing eBooks.
See? It’s not an impossibility to learn how to create an eBook. Even if you don’t have a business or you’re not a content creator, you can still create eBooks for Amazon publishing and make money.
Now that I think about it…I should become a publisher!
The video recording, editing, writing, proofreading, etc. for my YouTube channel and blog posts is really time consuming-lol.
In conclusion, I hope this post helped to give you some ideas how to create an eBook. Once more, eBooks are prefect for attracting new customers, adding subscribers for an email list, and proving information about your products or services.
Here’s to your success!
