Why you should add an eBook to your business.

EBooks are all the rave right now. People are creating ebooks with recipes, how to manuals, children’s books and the list could go on. What that tells me is that ebooks must be going well and must be helping people reach more people.

What is an ebook?

An ebook is  text presented in a format which allows it to be read on a computer or handheld device. Simple put, its read on a screen rather than from book cover to cover. Ebooks are made available in digital form, consisting of text, images, or both, readable on the flat-panel display of computers or other electronic devices as defined by Wikipedia.

Why are eBooks important to your business

Marketing

For most service based businesses, ebooks can help explain what your so. Businesses can cover specific topics in great detail with eBooks. Creating eBooks is the best technique to improve the depth of your content marketing plan. If your information is delivered in the form of an eBook that they can download and read whenever they have free time, your target audience will consume more content.

Grow your email list

eBooks are by far the most effective approach to expand your email list. You should always demand an email address in order to obtain access to an eBook. This is known as “gated content,” and it will help you fast expand your email list. Because eBooks purchased from your website are delivered via email, it’s only logical to ask for an email address in exchange for your free, or even paid, eBook. It’s far easier to grow your email list with eBooks than it is with blog post subscriptions.

Establish yourself as an expert

Your business can use eBooks to position your brand as the expert in your industry. Potential consumers begin to identify your brand with the entire category when you become an industry authority. They have faith in your company and are far more likely to purchase what you have to offer.

Personal experience

Writing my first ebook was a bit overwhelming to me. Although it was written as a children’s fiction book, it was only roughly based on the work I actually do. It gave me a better understanding as to how an ebook can help your business expand.

I do plan to write a new ebook, a study guide, that will go hand and hand with my online tutoring and my YouTube channel.

If you choose to add an ebook to your business, take your time, if done right way, it can bring in customers and more money to your business.

Making a gratitude list.

Today’s journal prompt is about gratitude.  According to Webster’s dictionary,  gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Gratitude is a quality.  Well…now what exactly is a quality. Again, according to Webster’s dictionary, a quality is a distinctive attribute or characteristic possessed by someone or something.

So basically expressing gratitude is showing a characteristic of being deeply thankful.

💜💜💜💜 Journal prompt 💜 💜💜

Make a gratitude list of 4 things you are thankful for.

I included this printable I found on 101planners.com, this may be helpful in getting your thoughts in order.

I like this printable because it causes us to think a little harder about exactly what we are grateful for. It’s easy to be thankful for people in our lives; our families, both immediate and extended and people we may see every day, like our co-workers, friends, or even our pastors.  Maybe dig a little deeper, remember Webster’s definition of gratitude, being thankful for, being ready to show appreciation for, as well as to show kindness to…..that encourages me to include teachers, doctors, coaches, waiters, and cashiers, in the list of people I’m grateful for…I could go on and on…and I may☺️ but for the sake of the post, I won’t right now.  Using this printable as a guide, think about things, books,  movies, places and even qualities that you may also be grateful for.

I’m sharing a few things from my own personal gratitude list below…it took a lot longer than expected to establish my list, and explaining why I’m grateful for each would make for one of the longest gratitude list imaginable, so I decided just to keep each one brief…

#1 The PEOPLE I am grateful for…*my son’s *my siblings *my youngest son’s favorite teacher *new friends that use to be just people I kinda knew *I know he’s not a person, but he is family, I’m grateful for Kratos, my middle son’s new puppy. *

#2 Some THINGS I am grateful for…*my headphones, the level of privacy they bring me is incredible. *My car, which here lately has doubled as a truck, is used  for more  than simply  going from place to place, my car is used as my work space, often called my mobile office, my lunch room, place to make important calls, my “take a second to calm down” space, my quiet place, my sit in the back and look at the beach spot. Now that I’ve thought about it, my car should have maybe been my #1. *My phone, I’m sure your phone is on your gratitude list as well…I’m grateful for all the important things we are able to do with this one device, mostly I’m grateful for the fact that it allows me to stay in contact with people that I love.  *My Kindle….I enjoy books, and the fact that I can have as many as I like at my finger tips whenever I want…second best gift I ever got.

#3 BOOKS and other reading material, that I am grateful for….* The Tony Evans Bible Commentary...(best gift I ever got). I don’t have the words right now to express how grateful I am to have received this book.  *“I know why the caged bird sings” is another book I’m extremely grateful for. I felt like it was a must read for myself, I won’t spoil it for you, but if you read it you will never be the same. *I know this is not a book, but the Oprah Magazine is, I’ll say reading material, that I’m grateful for. * This blog, bossLadysBLOOMS, another reading material  I’m grateful for, has  been a long time in the making, I have tons of potential blog post written down on notebooks all over the place and for the longest time, I was embarrassed to share. This blog is reading material that I am grateful for because I feel it necessary to encourage people, myself included, to get to know themselves, love themselves and take care of them selves.

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

I will finish my gratitude list in my personal journal, but I hope this helps you to get started.  I will admit this post took a lot of self searching, and innermost thinking, which is why I will finish in my own journal. I hope everyone is using the journal prompts to get to know themselves better.  If you feel comfortable, please share some of your thoughts here in the comments, you may want, like me to put a few here and finish in a personal space. The goal is get to know yourself better, so you can love and take care of yourself better.

Please comment, like and share💜
