People all over are looking for new ways to earn extra money to make ends meet financially. Today, the internet has created opportunities which never existed before for the average person to create a home based business that might even replace their present career.
If you have 8th grade writing skills, you can make a good living today creating special reports and eBooks and selling that information on the internet. You have a huge advantage if you have some specialized knowledge and experience in a niche, but if you have the necessary skill to do a little research then you can get started even without any special knowledge or experience.
Get started by spending some time researching your market and locating problems they need solutions for. The vast majority of people tend to be lazy when it comes to spending time researching and verifying information on subjects they want or need to know about.
These people are frequently willing to pay a reasonable price to get that information all together in one easy to access location. You can take advantage of their laziness by doing the research and then compiling it into special reports and eBooks and selling them. This opportunity has really taken off now that eReaders such as the Amazon Kindle have become extremely popular.
A simple method of getting started is to do some research on one particular problem in your niche and the best solution for it. Write up a short report and put up a website offering your report for a reasonable price.
There are numerous services which provide easy payment and delivery systems for eBooks and reports. One of the easiest solutions for writers today is to publish books for Amazon’s Kindle. It costs absolutely nothing to self publish books for the Kindle. This is hands down the fastest growing marketplace for selling your writing.
Create a series of articles highlighting the problem that your report provides a solution for and begin distributing these articles to article directories and niche blogs and websites. Also post articles to your own blog. Include a resource box at the end of each article directing the readers to your eBook sales website for more information.
Once you have your article series published, you can then start participating in forums, Facebook groups and email lists which concentrate on your subject area, with links to both your articles and the sales page of your special report in your email and forum signatures. Once you’ve started making sales, look for another problem and write up another solution.
You will have no trouble finding other problems in your niche while you are participating in forums promoting your special reports and eBooks. Your business will build over time. You can also either specially create a longer eBook or combine several special reports to create an eBook to sell onAmazon for the Kindle.
As you build up your offerings, sales will pick up and soon you will find your writing income replacing your job income. You will have used your writing talent and ability to do research and created a promising business with little to no upfront investment.
