Make an e-book: all right, you’re thought is – everyone and his father are doing this these days. However, why? Because it works. If you’re well-educated about a certain topic, e.g., how to weather coat a deck, power wash a house, give up smoking, make doll apparel – whatever it is, author a book about it..
Authoring e-books is simple – it may be done in as little as twenty-four hours – and you can offer it for sale on a web site like Click Bank or Commission Junction. Think though, most individuals look to the net for info. And, “how to” info is among the most popular forms.
So, squeeze your brain for what you like to do, author an e-book about it and sell it thru a major distributor like Click Bank. One book likely won’t make you rich, but it may bring in extra cash for a long time to come. The most beneficial part about this idea, once you make one e-book, you are able to make others and truly build your income to the point where you are able to quit your awful day job.
Think about your target audience, your book’s advantages to them, its core, and center like a laser on that. It might seem to you that just everybody’ will want to read your book – but that idea may make your book too ‘generalized’. Remember, if you center your efforts on a particular topic instead of generalizing you’ll appeal powerfully to a certain audience and reap more possible sales. It’s rather like centering on a puddle rather than an ocean.
Get to Understand your target readers; what troubles might your book resolve for them? Where is your book purchasing audience? Try to author a title that includes your audience in it. If not there, then maybe in the sub-title?
You have to be author and promoter, so write and make your sales info about your book as you author your book. Collect data about yourself for your author blurb (whatever qualifies you to author the book, maybe other publishing credits, any experience that’s a plus), write about the advantages your potential purchasers are seeking and are likely to discover in your book. Get a few testimonials.
Check into places like Amazon to see what books are selling well and read their ‘blurb’ content for thoughts on how to present your own. A visit to your local bookshop is a great idea also. Check into some of the other marketers who are marketing books online. Do an ‘E-book’ search. How are they marketing?
Author an attention-getting table of contents for your book. Title your chapter and add a sub-title to make it transparent to your reader what is contained inside. Read the table of contents of other authors to get an approximation of what may be ‘attention-getting’.
That should get you going. Now, do some net searches, hunt down the needed info to get yourself set in motion, but mind the rip-off artist out to get your money. Subscribe to a few newsletters by individuals who are legit. Think about each step of the process, keep notes and keep acting.
There are places like CafePress.com or zazzle.com that let you make t-shirts, mugs, stickers, etc. and sell them without carrying any stock yourself. There are no lower limits, nothing for you to stock and no upfront fees. If you don’t sell anything, you don’t pay anything.
So, how may a freelancer make the best of this medium? Rather simply, if you’re mighty with the pen, then dollars may follow. Make cool slogans and humorous sayings and put them on tee shirts, stickers, mugs, and so forth. You may be the creator of the next big fad Tee. Think of the motto, “Sh*t Happens?” I think this was made popular in the flower child seventies. Can you even start to guess how many bumper stickers and tee shirts were sold with this? So, squeeze your brain and produce some fantastic pop culture!
T-shirts come in an assortment of styles and colors. Are you targeting a female audience? You may consider one of the many tee shirts made for women–the baby doll, tank, spaghetti straps, and so forth. Consider the color of the shirt. While colors are attention-getting, they may also clash or overwhelm out one another. Make certain the colors you choose– for the T-shirt itself, any printed message and the colors in any graphic –will work together to produce your canvas. You want your shirt color to complement or contrast with the design. Remember that pinkish letters might not show up well on a pinkish shirt– if the two pinks are too alike.
Have something to “state” to the world. An effective message states it in a memorable way. Think about slogans that have survived the ages, easy word combinations that most everybody has heard. As the tee shirt designer, it’s your job to produce new slogans, adages or attention-getting phrases. Short is commonly better as it’s more easily remembered. But, even a longer message may be memorable if it flows and has rhythm or rhyme.
Try out different fonts. When picking out a font, remember that legibility counts. But so does visual aspect. Pick a font that adds a layer of depth to your message. If the message is, for instance, “Work drives me mad,” then the font may be scribbled or crazy-looking, and yet still legible. Ideally, you’ll make your design in a graphics program (like Photoshop) and then use your image atone of the sites.
Consider the art. Draw/design the art to express feelings. Which emotion do you want to conjure up? Distinguish the elements in the image that naturally arouse the desired response and then accent those elements. Are you seeking to make a sense of beauty or fright in those who see your design? The key is to comprehend the pieces of the artwork and build on them.
Place the art and text so that one doesn’t distract from the other. Art may be behind the text–if the art itself isn’t too busy. Art may be above or below the text. This works particularly well with oblong-shaped art so that the art basically underlines or sits above the line of text. Your art may also run along the side of the tee shirt, even crossing from front to back.
Scan and import your art images onto your file if you’re using Photoshop or a like application. Incorporating art may enhance your message. Or utilize art by itself if the visual is the message you want to convey.Other Details
