Ebooks are part of the new front line of the Internet. They are a vehicle for dissemination of marketing information, ideas, techniques, and knowledge on any subject imaginable. Each day the online community grows, causing the exposure of your ebook to increase exponentially. This is why electronic self-publishing has exploded so quickly.
Ebooks have certain abilities and qualities that other mediums do not have.
For example, ebooks are fairly easy to produce, and are inexpensive to produce. You don’t need a publisher, an agent, a printing press, film, ink, paper, or even a distributor. You just need a great concept, the ability to write it or to hire a writer, and the right software.
Ebooks are easily and rapidly distributed online. They are also easily updated. All you need is to go into your original creation and modify the text or graphics. Because of this flexibility, ebooks can change and grow as fast as you can type.
Ebooks are also immediately obtainable. You don’t have to go to a bookstore or search through endless titles at an online bookstore. All you have to do is download it from a website directly to your computer, and its ready to read.
Ebooks can be interactive. This is one of the most unique qualities that ebooks offer. You can add surveys, order forms, sound and video, even direct links to relevant sites which can make YOU money. The potential is virtually limitless.
Ebooks remain on your computer for as long as you choose, and they can be read and re-read whenever you choose to. They can even be printed out and stored on the shelves. These qualities set ebooks apart from all other media.
Another wonderful quality is that ebooks have no barriers in terms of publishing. You simply need to figure out your market, write your book, post it on your website, and with the right business plan, your audience will come to you.
Finally, and importantly, you have creative control over your ebook.
