Ebook Writing and Selling - Detailed Planning Cheat Sheets For Entrepreneurs Newly Released
September 12, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsLondon, UK, September 12, 2007 - In a 2007 survey of readers of a popular "SEO advice" blog, a staggering 87% said that they were actively learning internet marketing knowledge in order to sell their own ebooks or other information products online. Of those people, over half stated that they had previously started their own projects creating ebooks or selling private label products but stopped before finding success…
The most common reasons for would-be infopreneurs giving up were "lack of time" and "not knowing what specific action to take".
In the free text survey question about difficulties faced by ebook creators, two recurrent questions were "How can I manage so many tasks on my own?" and "How can I outsource well?"
These problems faced by entrepreneurs were the inspiration for a team of ebook authors and marketers to come together at eProductPlanner.com and create a unique planning guide for information product sellers, whether beginners or veterans.
eProductPlanner.com today announced the official release of the full "eProduct Planning Blueprint", a comprehensive set of project planning sheets designed to walk overwhelmed entrepreneurs through the crucial planning phase of their info product business.
According to eProductPlanner spokesman Craig Johnson, the Blueprint breaks the mold of conventional ebooks. "The eProduct Planning Blueprint is not a bland list of generic advice. It's a series of over 200 detailed planning points which you actually have to use in your own project. You're forced to answer questions and clarify your ideas, organised in such a way that you end up with a way better chance of getting your infoproduct selling dreams off the ground."
Launched this month, the eproductplanner website [http://www.eproductplanner.com] is the first resource online to focus entirely on the planning stage of ebook / digital product selling. The Planning Blueprint is available to customers at $29 for the full downloadable set of planning sheets, and to introduce users to the planning psychology behind the Blueprint, the website features a complete free project management report and a free informative newsletter.
Says Craig Johnson, "What a lot of people don't realise is how difficult ebook selling can be. We all hear a lot of hype from online marketers that you can make big bucks, which is true, but you have to approach selling infoproducts as a serious, organised business." Craig added that profits often take months to materialise: "I've seen some great ebooks fizzle because the author didnít see instant profits and just gave up on the marketing. Even the best products don't sell themselves. You need to dig in for the long term and if your product is valuable, you're sure to see results."
The team at eProductPlanner.com aim to set up ebook authors and marketers with a better project-oriented foundation, and more realistic expectations. The company motto is "Plan to Succeed".
