Why on Earth, an E-Book?

Even if you are not brand new any more to how things are done on the Internet, you may not be clear on E-books. Have you seen terms like Electronic books, digital products, downloads and E-books thrown around and thought it was all over your head?

Allow me to introduce you to E-Books. (Also written as ebooks, eBooks, etc.)

Those terms all refer to a package of pages, which can have pictures and popups as well as text, combined into one executable file.

Executable means - when you double-click on it's name in your Windows Explorer a customized browser window opens up (it is usually resizable when you click on the lower right corner and pull). Sort of like a software program. What you see are documents or regular web pages with links that you click just as you do on the web to move from one page to another. You can even click on some links and find yourself, (if you are online), whisked away to a web page the other side of the world.

Some people seem afraid of E-books.

I like them a lot!

E-books have been something of a novelty item the past four years, but now as the general public becomes used to them they are about to come into their glory. Along with laptops and digital cameras.

Yes, you can SO learn how to make them yourself. It's easier than some of those computer games you play. If you already know how to create web pages you're almost there!

You do need a little software program after you've written the contents of your book. If you are only planning to experiment you may try out several free ones, like I did at first, but if you plan to sell your E-Books, you'll need to buy a program called a Compiler. There are dozens!

I have the Activ E-Book Compiler, which is one of the best buys and most popular. It works on computers which run Microsoft Windows. Somewhere between 80% and 90% of all computers in use today, are compatible with this software, which gives you hundreds of millions of potential users!

With Activ E-Book Compiler, you create as many E-Books as you like, on any subject you like. If you don't want to create a large book, you can also use the software to create simple electronic brochures too.

Your E-Book can also incorporate things like:


text can be enlarged 3 or 4 magnifications

Hypertext navigation and search within the E-Book.

Live links to web sites.

Java Applets, JavaScripts.

Your E-Book can also expire after a given number of days or uses (so you can give your readers a free trial before they buy the full version)

and password protected pages (so you can let the readers see part of your E-Book free, and then pay if they want full access).

Activ E-Book Compiler also includes capabilities for "Rebranding" and Building a Series of E-Books. If you have an affiliate name or number you can have all the links inside the free sample E-Book that go to the web site for ordering, coded with your affiliate name or number. You can freely give away the free sample E-Book in hopes that the people will click the link, go to buy, and you'll get a commission!

This's just the start. There's a thousand other things that you can do as well.

Activ E-Book Compiler was the very first software I paid for, (and I haven't been sorry) but some months ago, Sunil Tanna, the designer of it sent notice that a newer version was available for download. I forgot that I accepted it until this week when I was about to update my E-Book editions of my novel. In reading the instructions I discovered that this version allows me to charge others for compiling their E-Books with my program.

So I'm now offering e-Book Compiling as a service whwen requested. It isavailable on my business site as Ruth's e-Book Compiling

But why on earth make an E-Book, you ask?

Why NOT jump on this bandwagon? You make products to sell, which hardly cost you anything but time, you sell them with next to no delivery costs, and you can freely give some of these products away - without losing skin on your nose - and if you've made the E-Books right, those gifts will bring droves of people to your web site where you can sell them more of your digital products. Products which have your knowledge in them, your ideas, or information that you've collected.

Aside from some credit card processing fees, you don't have to share any of your profits with middle-men or agencies. When you hear of people getting rich on the net - it is usually through selling what they know in this fashion.

(We'll get into how to pick your brain another time).

If you publish information you'll want to be sure that it is distributed in the original unmodified form. The last thing that you want is somebody else stealing your work, or falsely claiming it as their own work. If you publish your info-product as a Microsoft Office, Text or HTML files - then you are leaving yourself wide-open to this type of abuse.

On the other hand, if you publish your work in E-Book form, you simply don't have to worry - nobody can modify your E-Book except you because you can LOCK IT UP when you create it. People can read it if you give them the password, but they can't print or copy a word if you've set it up that way when you compiled your E-Book.

Lastly, if your E-Book sells well, or is widely passed around the world, you'll receive a measure of fame and respect that will open other doors for you.

My question to you is; what information do you have a vision and a passion to get out to others?

Before someone does something great, God gives them a vision for it. A dream. Almost always things will get very dark and impossible looking concerning that dream. During that time God builds a passion in you that just drives you with longing to make that vision come to pass. Eventually, when the time is ripe and you are matured - God will miraculously bring that vision to life. What if He were to do it through an E-Book?

P.S. Actually, we can't do anything without God's grace and strength, and He won't do anything without our cooperation. So nothing great happens unless we work together with God!
