I’m a writer.
I prefer to write my own eBooks. And I hate to burst your bubble, I don’t do it all the time. Not everyone who produces an ebook writes their own. Because you’re not experienced in a specific subject, doesn’t mean you can’t create an ebook.
Get someone with experience to write it for you! That someone would be a writer or freelance writer or ghost writer.
eBooks are the ideal digital product that you can sell again and again with no overheads or delivery costs and for which people are often willing to pay. They enable you to earn passive income and possibly achieve financial freedom.
The first step to that freedom is to create that book that you’re going to sell. And unless you decide to write it yourself, you’re going to need to find someone to write it for you.
The good news is that there are good places you can find quality writers. Here are some of them.
Places like Warrior Forum give members a chance to post their need for writing help and there are places for people to discuss matters relating to writing. You can also use these forums to find graphic designers and other experienced people.
Content Creation Firms
There are lots of specialist providers that will undertake content creation for a fair price. These are agencies that have a stable of writers who can complete all kinds of work. Do a search for ‘content creation services’ and you will find a few.
Know a writer?
Believe it or not, some of your friends may have writing skills and possibly would like to earn a little extra on the side. If it’s a friend you know well you’ll have the added bonus of knowing how they think and the quality of their work.Get a sample of their work before you go full on and assign them a book to write. Its a bit ugly trying to tell a friend you didn’t like their work. Position the offer carefully so you can extract from it without losing a friend!
Places like Freelancer.com and Guru.com are like a match-making service for businesses and project staff. People advertise their various skills and their rates or you can post a project job. You can respond to personal ads or post your own and the whole process is very structured for ease of use.
Further searching and some Tips
The internet is a big place and there are always options. You can try Fiverr.com for writers and forums frequented by hobbyists and creative writers.
Any of these will give you possible writers but the real challenge is in finding one who is good.
Initially, fiverr.com was launched as a platform where you could get a service done for a fiver, i.e. five dollars. These days a fiver is not a lot of money, so bear in mind you get what you pay for.
Fiverr though has matured and you can get very good services from fiverr – you’re unlikely to pay a fiver anymore, but that is not a bad thing.
Before you hire them to write your whole e-book, get them to write a couple of articles on a subject related to your topic or maybe a sample page.
Not only will it give you a sense of their writing style and ability before you pay them to write you 10,000+ words and spend a lot of money then you can maybe use this later as promotional material. Win – win!
Writing your own ebooks is admirable but not always practical. Getting someone else to write your ebook is much more efficient. Now, grab some notepaper and if you decide to outsource your book jot down the first five things you have to do to get it going.
