Ebooks make great online products and an excellent introduction to your funnel for new customers. However, many business owners don’t want to take the time to write an ebook. Or they don’t think their writing skills are good enough. In this post we’ll discuss the solution- outsourcing your niche ebook.
Outsourcing Your Ebook Writing
You’re probably passionate about their niche subject but that doesn’t mean you have to write the ebook yourself.. You should be heavily involved in creating the outline for the ebook. You should have final edit on the ebook. It’s totally fine to have a professional writer create the initial draft of the ebook as well as revisions.
This is why many Internet marketers outsource the writing of their ebooks. It is a wise decision because keeping a writer on staff just to write ebooks can be quite costly. Outsourcing the work to independent contractors can be much more affordable.
Finding the Right Person for the Job
The next step is to begin the process of finding the perfect writer to complete the ebook. There may be a number of factors you consider in choosing a writer. Some of these factors may include price, previous experience, and quality of provided writing samples. Prioritizing these factors is the first step in the process. For example if cost is the highest priority followed by quality of writing samples and then experience in the niche you might be tempted to hire a writer who is slightly less skilled but willing to work for a lower fee.
The best place to find a talented writer is usually online. You can conduct a search by placing an ad on sites like Craigslist or Upwork. In either scenario your job listing should request relevant information you would like applicants to provide.
You will likely receive multiple responses to your ad. Begin evaluating these responses by eliminating the low quality. ones. This is important because poor work is not worth even the most affordable price, especially for a product you plan to sell. Next, evaluate the remaining applicants using your prioritized list of criteria and rank them accordingly.
Contacting the top three applicants for an interview. You can do the interview in person if the writer is local, via phone, or online. This step is important because it will give you a good idea of whether the writer will be able to meet your needs. You should also discuss scheduling to determine if the writer is available to complete the project according to your time line.
After this interview process, it is time to make a decision. This doesn’t mean you have to choose one of the applicants you interviewed. If none of them seems like a good fit, interview more people, or run your ad again.
