The Art of eBook Creation is NOT Lost Forever

How do you go about creating your eBooks and reports?

With all the free reports available these days, I download and read a great deal of them. You know the type of reports I mean, standard format, single column, eBook title, basic contents page and body. It was a pleasant surprise to see something different.

This eBook is from a guy called Daniel Sumner and naturally I was interested in finding out how his eBook differed from mine. His tag line for the eBook is Create Convert Cash-in!

This had me impatient to know what he had to offer and discover what was so special about the eBook Cycle. To my pleasant surprise, this was no regular eBook; it was presented in a novel format, single column, basic contents but it was visually enticing, full of colour, graphics, tips hints and very cool formatting, so kept me reading.

As I read, it was obvious that this was not a 10 minute quickie that you see so many of. There was time, effort and passion put into this mini masterpiece. It flowed nicely as I read, learning everything Daniel was writing and seeing the picture he was creating with his use of the images. I was learning a very important lesson in report writing in a very easy to learn way.

Daniel engages you a lot as you progress, so you feel that you're getting to know him, like him and trust what he has to say. He lets you into his world and you feel grateful for the information he is providing, and at the same time encouraging you to get to work to create your own eBooks better than you have before.

In the eBook Cycle Daniel teaches you:

Why you should write an eBook

  • What format to choose
  • Getting started
  • Essential includes
  • Getting your eBook ready
  • Free or paid eBooks
  • Sales pages and squeeze pages
  • Payment processors
  • Marketing and traffic
  • And a whole lot more

I'm very impressed with this eBook to say the least and will return to it when I create my next report or eBook. Its definitely one for the book shelf and future reference.

But best of all, it's free. Yes FREE! You weren't expecting that, were you?

But believe me; it's true! A 100% Free download for you today.

I don't think I need to say more, so go experience it for yourself at: http://trishlikes.com/eBookCycle Give it a good read and please come back here and let me know what you thought of it. I would love to hear your comments!

Caring for Elderly Relatives

As I age myself I’m finding many of my friends are facing the problem of how best to care for elderly parents. Nothing is worse than the call from neighbours of your elderly mother or father to say that there has been an accident or illness and your parent has just gone off to hospital again.

When you are the only one of your siblings ineldercare_resource the same town as your mother, father or other relative, much of the care may fall to you and sometimes it just seems to get to be too much. Even unfair.

When it comes to eldercare, it is very important that you are prepared before you are facing critical decisions. Educating yourself about the options available to your parent before the fact will allow you, your siblings and your parent reach the plan of action for his or her situation.

The ebook “How to Take Care of Those Who Took Care of You” is an excellent Eldercare resource and will answer your questions and even some you hadn’t thought of yourself.

If you don’t want to buy the book, you will find halfway down the page, an excellent free 80 page book titled “How to Take Care of Elders“.

Joint Ventures Can Be Mutually Beneficial

Joint Venture

Internet marketers often work alone to generate income for themselves, but sometimes it can be mutually beneficial to form a joint venture with other like-minded folks working on similiar projects.

The ability to spread out effort and risk, while increasing returns, can be somewhat risky, but one worth taking because, if the exercise is successful, you have made a new friend and maybe even developed a permanent working relationship.

As with any worthwhile pursuit there are some core basics and guiding principles that joint venture participants should practice when seeking partners and executing a plan.

Before proceeding, it’s essential to know what a joint venture is. A “JV” is an agreement between two parties each seeking to cooperatively leverage the assets of each other, be it a skill, a product, a trade secret, or a customer or prospect list. In the case of an internet marketer, the agreement usually involves one marketer mailing to the other’s mailing list.

Once it’s been determined that a joint venture will be undertaken there are some fundamentals that should be followed to assure the best outcome.

Assessing your partner is a critical first step when forming a joint venture. Analyzing each other’s strengths and weaknesses and discerning each other’s agenda beforehand will serve to lessen negative surprises later.

You can get a free Joint Venture Agreement form here.

Strategy development is an initial activity where both participants assess the viability of their effort and any potential obstacles to the outcomes they plan to achieve. Concurrently, the partners can set milestones and financial agreements during this period. A 50-50 profit split is most common. In some cases, a newer marketer may forego some of the proceeds in order to establish a presence in their market.

Once these tasks are found to be suitably addressed, the new associates can move on to carrying out the campaign. Of course, this is not a static operation. If time and duration allows, testing and improvement should be ongoing as the campaign proceeds to its conclusion.

Finally, the hopefully happy and prosperous end is reached and various goals realized. It’s important to note that any end-defining milestones should have been during the assessment and strategy sessions. This will prevent misunderstandings and promote further collaboration.

Another pointer is to aim high. Sure, rejection may be the first response, but perseverance rules the day and a big player could be the tipping point to reaching a critical mass of success and security.

Lastly, always operate with a win-win mentality while following the sequence. Do it right, and it will be the first of many join ventures…or the last one you’ll ever need.

Publishing Your Own Book

Have you ever thought of turning your eBooks into physical books?

If the thought has never crossed your mind you should think about it.

I’m guessing you may be thinking that the book publishing process is hard work, but I’d like to tell you about a new product from John Thornhill that could make you think differently and may be just the answer you are looking for. John has created a video series showing you how you can turn an eBook you have rights to into a physical book in under an hour.

Here are some advantages of converting your eBooks to books.

  • You Gain More Credibility. As a book author you instantly gain more credibility as you are seen as an expert.
  • You Have Another Autopilot Business. If you choose not to sell on eBay and from your website you can still sell from websites such as Amazon and the whole process is 100% automated.
  • You Get More Exposure. Your book can be seen on the worlds leading online bookstores such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This gives your name, and therefore your business more exposure.
  • You Have Another Way To Generate An Affiliate Income. Yes, you can still generate an affiliate income from your book and you will be shown exactly how to do it.
  • You Have Another Product To Sell On eBay. With the current eBay rules you cannot sell an eBook as a digitally delivered item. However, if you convert your eBook to a book you instantly have another product to sell on eBay.
  • You Have Another Way To Generate Traffic. You can still add links to your existing products in your book, just as you would with an eBook.

The real beauty is John has also figured out a way to sell this book via online bookstores such as Amazon and you don’t have to lift a finger because when a book is sold they are printed and distrubuted automatically. In fact all you have to do is spend the money you earn from the book sales!

Since an ebook is just an electronic book, this process would be useful for many other purposes besides internet marketing, perhaps publishing your family tree, an instruction guide, recipe book – anything at all as long as it is in digital format.

Home Based Business Ideas

A work from home business is now seen as an alternative to the 9-5 job, five days a week. Making money online is becoming increasingly popular as people begin to think differently. With the cost of everything increasing, more people are taking charge of their financial situation. They are setting up businesses at home so that they can earn an income and get a better work-life balance.

The internet is full of various opportunities. There are many genuine ways of making money. However, you need to be aware of scams that don’t deliver the goods. You need to be wary and check out credentials before parting with your cash.

The internet has so many opportunities it might be hard to choose which one is best for you. How to get started and the business opportunity to choose is the biggest challenge. Here are some questions to think about.

Is this the right work from home business idea for me? Do I need a lot of experience to succeed in this business? How much money do I need to get started? Is it a proven work from home business?

Here are some of the best and quickest ways to earn an income with your own home business.

  • Affiliate Programs & Other People’s Products

Affiliate programs are a very easy and quick way to start with your home business. Affiliate programs are a way of making money by promoting other people’s products or services. You receive a commission which will vary greatly. Check out the commission paid for products you feel comfortable with promoting.

The advantage of affiliate programs is that you only need to lay out a small amount of cash to get started to pay for your website and paying for ongoing promotions.

Your sole aim is to advertise your website and promote products and services. Create as many sales as possible and gradually increase your commission checks.

  • Private Label Resell Rights Products

These are products that are already created. You claim ownership and market them as your own. Key advantage of this is that you don’t have to create your own product and can be in your own home business very quickly.

  • Resell Rights Products

These are products that are already created and available to anyone who can pay for the resell rights to market them. You get to market a product which is already created. Sometimes they come with their own website so you can be up and running in your own home business pretty quickly.

  • Create Your Own Product!

Sounds scary? Needn’t be. All of us know a bit about something. Just think of things that you enjoy, what you know, what you do. Put it in to an e-book or product. Use what you know and start making money from your own business.

These are just some of the ways in which you can easily start to earn money from your own online home business. Working from home can generate extra income and potentially, a great deal of money. These are proven methods. They just need you to apply them.

Why not give it a try?

Do you have balance in your life?

Do you have some days when you just don’t seem to get very much done? Days when you’ve been busy doing things, but at the end of it all, you wonder whether you’ve achieved anything worthwhile?

Perhaps we all need to take a step back when this is how we feel, to reassess our lives and see if it is all work, work, work! We need to keep balance in our lives; balance between work, family, education, recreation, health and whatever other area that is important to each of us, but when we find ourselves pushed for time, when days just don’t seem long enough, these other areas of our lives are often pushed down our priority list.

Is it any wonder we feel frazzled sometimes? The constant pressure can lead us to feel dissatisfied with our lives and who we are. The old saying about “take time to smell the roses” is very good advice. Of course it doesn’t have to be roses; for you it might be a walk along the beach or through a rainforest, chatting with a friend, playing with children, watching a funny movie, reading a book, spending time in your garden or making something with wood, but whatever it is that revitalises you, helps you to focus on the pleasures of life rather than the problems, than that is what you need to find a few moments to do on a regular basis to keep your life in balance. Take some time out from worries to have fun & experience pure enjoyment instead.

Balance helps us to be at peace with ourselves and those around us, helps us to see things from a wider perspective and allows us to like ourselves much better. When you are happy with the person that you are, it is a whole lot easier to accept others, too; to accept their differences, to value new experiences, to learn new things and rediscover the joy of living that young children intuitively have.

Start now; make some time for fun in your day.
