Let’s Write an eBook Together!

by Daniel in — Updated Reading Time: 3 minutes

The idea of writing an eBook with collective efforts has been on my mind for a while now, so let’s give it a try. Basically I want to create a project that would group together the ideas and tips from different people, in a way that it would benefit both the collaborators and the end user (i.e. the readers).

The Process

The topic for this eBook is going to be “Tips, Tricks and Strategies to Make Money Online.” It is an not the newest of the topics, I know, but you can’t deny that it is a very popular one. Additionally, the collaborative format will add some freshness to it, because on the same eBook you will find the tips and opinions from a wide range of people, all with different backgrounds and experiences on the Internet.

The creation of the eBook will be pretty simple. Participants will send me their tips, tricks or strategies to make money online, and I will organize them together. Each page will feature one different person.

Once the eBook is formatted, styled and ready to go, I will release it on Daily Blog Tips, and all the participants will be allowed to release it on their websites or blogs, too.

Why You Should Participate

I know that I need to make the project beneficial for everyone involved, so here is why you should participate.

1. First of all it might help you with your brand. Your name and website URL will be featured on top of the page where we will include your submission. I can’t know for sure how many people will end up downloading the eBook, but there is a possibility that thousands of people will, and they will all come across your name.

2. Secondly, I want to make sure that the participants will also gain traffic out of the eBook. How so? In the end of each submission, we will include 3 links to popular or useful posts on your blog. You are free to choose what those 3 posts are going to be (I will just have some editorial control to make sure they are indeed useful and related). These 3 links are optional though.

Here is how a page of the eBook would look like:

Ebook-Together

3. Finally, the participants will also have the right to distribute the eBook to their email or RSS subscribers (but you won’t be able to offer direct downloads for the eBook).

This could be useful for people looking to build an email list, or to give your visitors an incentive to subscribe to your blog.

Rules for Participating

If you want to participate, all you need to do is to send me an email (danielATdailyblogtips.com) with your tips, tricks or strategies to make money online. For example, you could write about the importance of networking with people online, or you could share an strategy to make money with mini websites and Google AdSense.

The better your advice or strategy, the higher the chances of someone deciding to click on the links to your blog posts.

Your submission must have between 200 and 300 words. Make sure to include the 3 posts that want to appear on your page as well (and please proofread!)

The deadline for the submissions is next Wednesday, February 4 (midnight EST).

  4. It sounds a lot like Mert Erkal’s original version of Bloghology. That seemed to work out for everyone involved including myself. It’s a great idea and I’m looking forward to seeing the ebook.

  9. I will send this info to my webmaster as he owns one of the most visited blogs @ Mexico (www.antidepresivo.net).
    I’d love to contribute to your e-Book. My blog’s about literature and although it has a good ranking, I’ve never seen a cent 😛
    Anyways, I know I might be helpful as I love translating and I guess my Spanish is better than my English, haha. So, I’m in.
    Greetings from Mexico City.

  21. Hi Daniel I have already sent an enrty. But my article is little over 300 words. I hope you accept it 🙂

  22. Well I suppose that was easier then I expected submission sent. The article itself was an attachement I am a bit under tech with my E-Mail and Word Processing combination at the moment. You know it is the simple things in life we neglect to learn.

  23. I think I know just the subject matter but need to think about it a bit 1st by feb 4th should be easy. The tough part will be 3 urls from my blog as my focus is record label 2.0 rather then marketing itself.

    Admittedly though social marketing has a huge impact on the subject so I should be able to pull off 3 URLS

  28. I am going to have to write a page for this just so I can be sure to get a copy of the ebook! I hope I can find the time.

    Great idea!

  29. @Raju, tough to say as I don’t know how many people will send their tips.

  30. Hey, this is a cool concept and let me give it a shot…

  31. Hi Daniel,

    how many pages will be there in the eBook?

  32. Love the idea.

    Unfortunately, my niche isn’t making money online. I hope you don’t mind if I “steal” your idea. I have been thinking of a project very similar, so I appreciate being able to see how you are actually pulling this off.

    I have had the post written for awhile, but just redid it using your post as a model (and just added a little link love back here of course : ) ) .

    Fabulous idea!

  35. As someone who is just learning the ropes, I have to tell you that I *love* this idea. Not as a contributor, but as a reader. Can’t wait to see the finished product. (Let me know if you need a proofreader–no charge. *g*)

  39. That’s a great project Daniel. And I really liked your idea of not giving a book as a direct download. And as you said this can convert visitors to potential subscribers too. Will definitely try to post!

  44. Considering I have US$ 15,03 in my Google Adsense Account since Jul 2008, I think I’m not the best to speak about this topic 😀 Though, I have a few ideas.

    But I’ll read those tips for sure!

    Reply
  45. @SEO Tips, 300 words is more or less what it will take to fill 1 page, with the eBook format, that is why I’ve chosen that number.

    Plus, this will ensure people will be concise and will go straight to the point 🙂 .

    Reply
  46. Great idea Daniel but don’t you think 200-300 words is a little restricted? If its a page of text each then wouldn’t we be looking at 400-500 words?

    Good idea and I shall be entering.
