How To Create Your Own Ebooks or Special Reports Without Writing It Yourself

Aug 28, 2007
Selling products online has become very lucrative for many netpreneurs. Ebooks and special reports are amongst the most popular type of downloadable products. These files in written form, can be very useful when they convey desireable information.

Indeed, information is what fuels the internet. People log online to search for information. If you have the information they need, they will come to you. If this information holds a lot of value, you could sell the same and make a good profit. Since words are still the primary tools of communication on the web, information is often conveyed in written form.

Preparing written works is not easy. For starters, not everyone can write well. Those who can may not take the time to embark on such an undertaking.

Fortunately, there are some alternative routes you can take which will allow you to prepare your own eBook or special report without having to write down a single word. Let's take a look at 5 of these options.

Gather some articles and compile them in a single volume. This would be the easiest way to prepare your own digital product. These articles can be PLR works which grant you the right to alter them and use the content anyway you please. They may be articles written by other people, which you have compiled from renowned websites like ezinearticles.com or goarticles.com. If you choose the latter, just make sure that you respect the terms and conditions of their usage, primary of which is the inclusion of the original author's resource box. Make sure that each article organically and logically flows to the next. You can ensure this by studying the articles you want to include.

Conduct an interview with an expert and record the same. Thereafter, hire someone from rentacoder.com, elance.com or guru.com to transcribe the conversation you had with the said expert. You'd be surprised how quickly you can compile 50 to 200 pages worth of essential reading material using this method.

Buy an existing eBook or special report that comes with private label rights. This would enable you to alter the contents of the same, and even name yourself as the author of the work. You could add some materials as you feel are necessary, or better yet, you could combine two, three, or even ten of these PLR eBooks or special reports to come up with an encyclopedic tome of information worthy of some notice.

Hire a ghostwriter to prepare an eBook or a special report for you. There are many freelance writers looking for work at the websites we mentioned above. It's just a matter of selecting the best writer for the job at a price that will not be too daunting to your budget. Expect to pay $200 to $1,000 for a 50 page eBook.

Here's a novel approach. Join an internet marketing forum, and ask a question. A good example would be "How Could You Profit From The Internet With A $0 Budget." For certain, you'll get some amazingly enlightening replies. Compile these replies until you'll have enough materials to come up with an eBook or a special report. Ask the posters' permission to avoid any copyright issues. Chances are, they'll agree, provided that a link to their respective websites are included in your work.

Lack of writing prowess, or the time to write, is never a bar for the production of your own digital products. All you need is a little imagination, and hopefully, the suggestions above have stirred up some concepts in your mind.
