How to Convert Your Blog Posts into eBooks | T4C005
eBooks are hot right now! Some purest still love consuming information while their fingers run along the spine of a hardcover, but eBooks are a great way to get your name out there.
“But I don’t have time to write an entire book!”
Lucky for you, you don’t have to dedicate hundreds of hours locked up in a cabin somewhere in the mountains to become a published author!
How to Convert Your Blog Posts into an eBook
– Drag and drop your posts into a blank word doc
– Author an introduction, closing, about me, and depending on the content…a bibliography, links to helpful tools, links to videos, or a sales offers.
– Test all of the links, proofread, etc and convert the doc into a PDF. (Adobe paid version $19.99/mo, Fiverr)
– Upload the PDF to Dropbox or my recommendation Amazon’s S3.
– Design a slick little cover image using Photoshop, PicMonkey, Canva or whatever you’re comfortable with. (Fiverr helps here too)
– Turn that cover image into a 3D book cover at www.MyECoverMaker.com
– Add the 3D image to your website, signature block, or social media. Using the link from Dropbox or Amazon S3, hyperlink the image to that file. This allows visitors to click on the image, and have access to the book contents.
