How to Create an eBook Through 199Jobs

Selling ebooks to make money online started in popularity in 2007 and has continued to grow as a business over the years.

The industry is already big in other countries, but in the Philippines, there’s still a lot of room for growth and profits.

Fortunately, creating an ebook is easy and most of the tasks, including writing the content, can be outsourced — and below are the steps how.

Step 1: Choose a topic

Choose a topic that you know very well. It’s important for your topic to be about solving a problem that many people have so that it would be profitable. Define your target market, and write an ebook that they will buy.

Step 2: Create an outline

After choosing a topic, create an outline of your ebook. Write out the different chapters that will comprise your ebook. For each chapter, note down the main points that will be discussed. Be concise but comprehensive.

Often, you won’t be able to finish this in one sitting. In fact, we recommend that you jot down all your ideas first and let the topic marinate in your head for several days. Afterwards, you can compile all your notes and organize everything.

Step 3: Write the chapters

Now that you have your chapters, it’s time to write your ebook. The secret to finishing your ebook is to just write and edit later, no matter how tempting it is. Again, finish your first draft first and revise later.

Don’t have time to write? Then hire a writer.

One article order here will cost P199, which is about 300-500 words — that’s already enough to make one ebook chapter. So if your ebook has 10 chapters, then you need to order a writing job ten times, which you can do from different writers or from the same writer.

Step 4: Compile and proofread

Compile the written articles and create the first draft of your ebook. Begin your revisions to make the ebook coherent, improve the grammar, and make sure that the writing flows smoothly chapter by chapter.

If you need assistance on editing and proofreading, our editors can help you as well.

Step 5: Design your ebook covers

The last task in creating your ebook is producing a cover design that’s both attractive and appropriate. A lot of people still judge a book by its cover, so be sure that your ebook cover gives out the right impression.

If you’re not a graphic designer, then we can help you with that as well. Choose among our talented graphic designers for assistance.

Congratulations on your new ebook

And you’re done!

If you choose to outsource all the steps with us, then an ebook with ten chapters would cost you around P2786 (14 x P199). You can sell your ebook for P100 and you’ll only need 28 customers to break even, and that’s not hard to do especially if your ebook helps solve a painful problem for your target market.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and create your ebook now and make money online.
