Ten Ways To Know Whether You Should Write That Booklet

You’ve got an idea for a booklet, but are you really passionate enough about your topic to make it fly?  Most ideas die before they ever see the light of day.  This is because what seems like a great idea at the time is quickly extinguished when we realize that it’s going to take some work.  You must be passionate about your topic or you’ll lose steam before you even complete your manuscript (if you ever start it!).

Here are ten ways to know that your idea is truly a passion and not just a flight of fancy.

1) Is it something you’re already involved in by choice? If you choose to be involved in something, you probably have a certain amount of passion for it – such as playing tennis or star gazing or dancing.

2) Is it something you’re involved in, but had no choice? Often being involved in something and not being given a choice as to whether or not you wanted to be involved can lead to a passion for helping others cope with the same situation.  Allergies are a good example of this.  Nobody chooses to have an allergy, and everyone who has them would love to be free of them.  Having an allergy may, therefore, create a passion inside you to find better ways to cope with it and help others in the process.

3) Does it consume your thoughts night and day? When you’re truly passionate about something you can’t stop thinking about it.

4) Would you rather be involved with it than doing anything else? Our passions consume our time.

5) Is it high on the list of priorities in your life? If it is, you’ll find yourself excluding other things to to stay involved with this one.

6) Is it all you really want to talk about? You may find that you have to curtail your enthusiasm a bit around your friends and family because they get tired of hearing about it!

7) Are you willing to buy just about anything related to it? Think golf.  Golfers will spare no amount of expense to improve their game.

8) Are you willing to do whatever it takes to improve in it, or learn more about it. This might mean taking classes, reading, watching DVD’s, subscribing to magazines, etc.

9) Do you find that you can never absorb enough information about your topic? You never get tired of reading or hearing about it.

10) Does the time seem to fly by when you’re engaged in or with your topic? There never seems to be enough time to do the things we really enjoy.  If it’s a passion, you’ll find there’s never enough time in a day.

Creating a booklet you’re passionate about is important because you’ll be known for what you write about.  Make sure it’s something you truly love and want to be known for!

To your riches!

How To Make More Money With Less Effort

Have you ever become interested in something new, quickly learned all you could about it, perhaps even written about it, and then moved on to something else?  Maybe you just got tired of that new thing because it wasn’t so new anymore.  Or you might have pursued it so hard that you got burned out and you were no longer interested in it.  It might have been a new hobby, or even a new job.

This happens to all of us at one time or another, but when you become a booklet author you need to stay focused on your booklet’s topic or you’ll lose any status you have with your audience.

Choose Your Topic Carefully

Before you ever write your manuscript you need to choose your topic very carefully.  It should be something that you have a great deal of experience with or knowledge about, and it should be something that interests you.   You want to be sure that the topic will be interesting to you for a long time because once your booklets are on the market you’ll be known as an expert in that topic.  People will come to you for answers, and they’ll expect you to create more booklets and other materials that pertain to the same subject.

Stay In The Loop

Some authors think that once their booklet is on the market the research and education on their booklet’s topic is over.  But, not staying on top of the latest developments or continuing to educate yourself on your subject is a huge mistake.  If you put your booklet on the market and you cut all ties with your subject, you’ll eventually lose your edge and your credibility in the market place.   You must continually imerse yourself in your subject to keep it fresh in your mind.

Advancement Is The Key Than Unlocks The Treasure Chest

As you stay involved with your subject and constantly study it and stay informed, you will advance through the ranks to the top.  The more knowledge you gain, the more you have to write about.  This allows you to easily create new booklets to sell to your market, as well as other products that will interest them.

Many authors barely scratch the surface of what’s possible in the way of product sales because they’re out of the loop.  They write something, put it on the market, make a few dollars and move on to the next thing.  They don’t take the time to advance.  If they would just stay current with their subject, their job would be much easier and they would make more money with less effort.

How about you?  Will you get off to a running start only to fizzle out after a short time?  Or, will you advance in your knowledge and experience, create new booklets, and keep satisfying the hungry market you already have?

To your riches!

How Providing A Rich Resource For Others Brings Riches To You

There’s nothing better than making money from a booklet you have written.  It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that you’re doing some good in the world by helping others with your information.  But, in order for this to occur there is something you need to consider before you write your booklet.

Why Will People Want To Read Your Booklet?

After you have decided upon a subject for your booklet, the next thing you need to do is ask yourself why people will read your booklet about that subject.  You need to know which information people are looking for regarding your booklet’s topic.  Otherwise, you may write a booklet which doesn’t interest the people in your market because it doesn’t provide the right information.

Have you ever purchased a book to help you with something and then found that the book didn’t provide the information you were looking for?  The book may have contained all kinds of relevant, topic related information, but it just didn’t have what you needed.  This has happened to many people, and usually they will return the book to the company they bought it from because it wasn’t helpful to them.

Happy Readers Rave, Unhappy Readers Forget

When people return a book because they didn’t find it helpful, this is a bad thing for both the author and the publishing company.   It means that the book will be forgotten by the person who returned it.  Had they found the book truly helpful, they would have been happy to tell others about it.  This can happen any number of ways today via face to face meeting, by phone, in a blog post, or even as a recommendation on a website.

The same applies to a booklet as it does to books.  When people find your booklet helpful, they’ll gladly tell others about it.  Everyone likes to share information with others that they find useful.  But, if your booklet doesn’t give people the information they need, they may return it or they may decide it isn’t worth the trouble to return it, but either way they won’t be raving about it to others.

Give People What They Need And Let Them  Rave

The best way to insure that people rave about your booklet is to give them what they need.  And to do that, you must start by asking yourself why people will read your booklet.  What kind of information is most vital to them about your topic?  When you do this, you’re on your way to providing a rich resource for others, and that will result in riches for you!

To your riches,

Kim
