How often have you come across an eBook supposed to be covering great content but you simply can’t finish reading it?
It’s a waste. You see, the author have done the hard part in writing such a great content but didn’t care to put in a little more effort in making it interesting and readable.
Look, you can have two ebooks with totally similar content, but one will be a hit and the other a total failure.
Here’s a fact: “It’s not the story that matters…it’s how the story is told!”
With that in mind, I’ve written a list on seven tips you can use to create an eBook that’ll get read.
Tip #1: Engaging Writing
Imagine an eBook with plain, monotonous writing throughout. Do you think your readers will be excited to read it. I know I won’t.
It’s important to create an enticing eBook that’ll pull your readers’ eyes into it. Make it engaging. You can excite your readers by inserting anecdotes, making use of testimonials, informative tips and advice and of course stories, which always get people interested to read.
And one cool tip to writing an interesting piece: make use of swipe files, it’ll just make your writing so much easier and hypnotic too.
Tip #2: Personality
Let your personality shown through. If you’re a great sense of humour, then inject it into your writings.
If not, don’t bother trying to be funny…it’ll only make a pathetic writing. Be natural, don’t try to be someone you’re not.
Tip #3: Use White Space
Have a break after about four lines of sentences. Do not filled up your eBook with blocks of text. This will only strain their eyes, especially when they’re reading it on screen.
You’ll want your readers to have a pleasant experience reading your ebook. So it’s important to create white spaces by having breaks…it helps to rest the eye.
Tip 4: Make Use of Lists
One way to get your points easily absorbed is by using lists in the form of bullets and numbers. And most people generally love it too.
List helps to summarize and dissect important information, plus allow some mental break for your readers.
Tip #5: Easy-to-Read Font
Do not try using fanciful font…it may look cool to you but what’s the point if your readers have trouble reading it. Simply use font that’s easy to read, I’d recommend you use Arial, Tahoma or Verdana.
One more thing, do not use a variety of fonts together.. it’ll only result in a very unprofessional looking ebook. Sure you do not want that to happen.
There you have it. Follow these five tips and you’ll have an eBook that’s going to be a hit with your readers.
Now, go on and create that ebook.
