Why an Ebook?
Good question, since it does look like a lot of work for something that may not even be worth it, but here’s why I believe it will be worth your time.
- Your blog content can be considered as a valuable database of information for your users to go back to.
- Your ebook will make it easier for your readers to find specific content they’re searching for quickly without scouring through old pages on your blog.
- Your old content will resurface so you won’t have to lament the fact that you spent so much time on work that’s no longer visible and getting any attention from readers.
- You can add a section of any website not just your blog.
- Your work will be available offline so people can read it everywhere.
- With each download of your ebook, you gather active leads, which can also help you figure out who’s really interested in your content.
- You’ll be able to increase your conversion rate.
You see where I’m going with this? You’re making your content more available and giving every post you’ve ever written a chance to shine!
No no, don’t give me that skeptical look. I know what you’re thinking. you’ll have to spend hours copying the content and pasting it into your authoring tool. But that’s just the thing. With the help of three easy steps, you can import the posts you want, and place them wherever you want in the ebook. Just find the posts you’ll need and we’ll tell you what to do next.
