How to get someone else to write an eBook for you and should you?
are perfect for so many things, especially for storing and sharing information. Information that can be bundled into an eBook of some kind, and then sent to someone as a file they can download and open in any eBook reader that supports that format. That was after all, the original concept behind an eBook (Electronic Book
). So that people could store and send information, written things, images etc and have them on hand, to read and open any time, any place, even without an Internet connection.
For eBooks can be read both online and offline as well. That's one reason I love eBooks so much. And probably partly the reason one of my HDD's is full up of eBooks that I've downloaded and saved over the years. I like to collect eBooks that are how-to-guides. diagrams, white papers, tutorials and stuff like that. But I've also collected a lot of novels over the years as well. Stories from many different authors. All those great books you never got to read but wanted to as a kid. And some of the latest authors as well. I like to read them on my phone when I'm not too busy and I find I prefer to read when waiting for something than play a game that just annoys everyone around me! lol
But if you wanted to write an eBook, but didn't actually want to write it yourself. Can you get someone else to write it for you? Well of course you can! You can get anyone to write anything for you today. Whether it's an article or something. You just tell them what you want the article to be about, give them some keywords and leave it with them to do it for you. Couldn't be simpler right?
So where to get an eBook written for you? Well right here on WordClerks
of course! All you have to do is start a new WTB
and request it. Then someone who has those skills that you listed will get a notification about it and then be able to bid on your WTB and then you can place an order with them for it. Then you just give them the details to it and they can do it for you.
You can also do something else as well in case you didn't get many bids. And that's to go through the list of writers
here and see if anyone has those skills you need that can do it for you. Then you can just contact them by sending them a message on here and then telling them about the project details and what you want the eBook to be on and about and they can do it for you.
You'll have to agree to a price and everything first, and they will then be able to make you a custom service which you can then order and they can start working on it for you. And provided you've told them enough about what you want the eBook to be on they should have enough to go on, along with the skills and experience needed to do that for you. Some writers will charge per word so where they may charge $5 for 500 words. A 5000 word eBook would cost you around $50-75 dollars. Since they have to add a little to actually compose and format it and make the eBook file for you whatever format it may be.
But to help you with all of this, and so you can be happier with your end eBook. And so they will know what your eBook should be like, what pages it should have, what topics it should cover, any links etc etc. Here's some things to ask and tell them first.
- Have you ever written an eBook before and do you have experience making them?
- Do you have any samples of any eBooks that you have written before I can read?
- How much do you charge per word and can you make an eBook that is 5000+ words?
- Will you learn about the angle I'm trying to take with this eBook so you'll know how to word it?
- Will you add several high quality and unique images or do you need me to provide them?
- Will you create all the links to my site and add them in the right way without being spammy?
- What format do you deliver the eBook in? PDF, PPT etc and will you provide the master file too?
- How long will it take you to write the eBook and will there be a deadline to work by?
Are just some of the questions you should ask anyone first before you hire them for such a task. Considering some eBooks can be 5000 or more in words (that's about 5-7 pages). And some eBooks can have many pages in them. You're not going to be paying small amounts for en eBook creation. For some eBooks that have up to 10+ pages you could be looking at paying around $150 or more for it. So it's not something you just want to give to anyone without asking these questions at least!
And should you hire someone to write and create an eBook for you? At the end of the day, it's you that knows what you want the eBook for and you that would be able to word it the best. But if you can convey and express that point to the writer and make them understand the reasons you're writing it and what for, and the angle you're trying to take, and they happen to be an expert writer as well with years of experience in this sort of thing. Then absolutely you should!
Absolutely you should. And it could turn out to be very profitable for you since eBooks can be sold, sold and sold again. IF you sell an eBook for say, $10.00. And you sell 100 of them. Well that's a grand. Minus your $150 outlay, that's $850 in your pocket. And you can of course go on to sell even more of them over and over again and just make a passive income from them!
I don't need to tell you how profitable some Nook Kindle eBooks are for those story tellers on Amazon do I? Some of those guys are making thousands every month from selling story eBooks. And the crazy thing is, some of them didn't write a single one of them themself! That's mad crazy. And the carrot that I leave dangling over your nose.
Have you ever hired someone to write an eBook for you and how did it go?
Is there someone you would recommend or do you prefer to keep them to yourself?
Or, when it comes to an eBook, do you prefer to write it yourself?
Thanks for reading.
