How to make a Digital Book

1. Why you want to make a Digital Book

Setting the goal of creating a digital book is the first step that you should give. Only you will know why you will write a digital book, and what is your purpose in writing it. Some people write a digital book with the goal of promoting their blog or increase the number of subscribers to his newsletter.

Another good reason is to provide quality content for your visitors and make them coming back to your blog or website.

Do not forget to put some links within the pages of the digital book in the footer or in the pages of the chapters.
Other business models aimed at the sale of digital books in order to supplement the income from the blog. I think this model very interesting, ever wonder the digital book being marketed and still generating traffic to your website just adding some internal links.

2. Choose what to write about

When you want to offer a free digital book, or simply use it as a source of income, the best formula is to write about what you really know. If your blog is about advanced programming techniques, then develop a practical digital book and explore new concepts within that area. The same applies to blog about writing, copyright, blogging, money, among others. If your audience is visiting your site for what you write about a certain area, there is not much logic you contradict it with a digital book on summer vacation or the best sunscreens to the skin, correct.

3. Define the structure

Define the structure of your digital book is certainly one of the most important steps in the construction and organization of the material to write. Start by identifying the number of pages to limit the digital book, if the digital book is to be distributed free it can have 10 to 20 pages. A quality digital book should have between 15.000 and 30.000 words, according to studies related to this concept so the range is large enough to not have to worry too much. On average an article from a blog is about 1000 to 1500 words, so it may mean writing 10 or 20 articles of this kind, only to have a notion.

4. Title and sub-title of the book

As you probably know, the title of a book is surely one of the key pieces of its success, whether printed or in digital format. The big digital books make use of aggressive titles, but tempting,

Choose your title, and when the book is finished, change it if necessary.

The sub-title is to me as important or even more than the original title, since it presupposes the action and reports what will be presented within the digital book. A sub-title that reflects deeply but aggressive action that will continue into the book.
If perchance you are in doubt in the title of your book, try half a dozen friends and expose them to the title and sub-title, and register their feedback. Given that they might be potential readers, their "outside" opinion is extremely important.

5. Review

Having started writing your digital book and come to the end of the first model, go for a break and make the first review. Cut all the words and meaningless phrases, as well as any content that does not help your reader in any way. A technique digital book does not need "straw" to become more dense. It needs quality to become a success.

During the review note aspects and tips on what you can change, and begin by rewriting what is incomplete, while engaged in a little more research to complement some of your views.
