It has been awhile since I wrote about this topic, so when one of my listeners asked about it on this week’s teleseminar I decided to discuss it further here. Setting up a blog in order to get your eBook written is a convenient way to market your eBook as you are writing it. This method also keeps you very organized as well.
The first thing I recommend is purchasing a domain name that will be the title of your eBook. You may also want to purchase two or three additional domains that are connected to your title. Choose one to use as the url of your blog, and then begin posting.
Choose your blog’s categories as though they were the chapters of your eBook. This will keep your posts more organized and help you later on when you actually use your posts to create your eBook.
Remember that you can always add more information when you are ready to organize your posts. Your eBook will be a combination of your blog posts and any additional material you also wish to include. By clicking on the name of a particular category, you can see every post that you have written and assigned to that category. Try this out here on my blog. Look through the categories on the right, and click on any one of them to see what I have posted that falls under that category.
Using your blog to organize and develop your eBook is fast and convenient. It also gives you the opportunity to build an audience of interested prospects as you are posting to your blog on a regular basis. Be sure to include an opt-in box so that your readers will be able to leave their name and email address. This is a way that you can stay in touch with them as you continue to write your eBook.
