As moms we have this unspoken connection. Well, some of us do. We know for the most part that moms do stick together (as long as we stay away from some hot topics hahaha)! I think we can all agree that parenting is not easy. We all have to make life run smoothly with kids, home and some of us have careers too and that can be a tall order. Being able to communicate with other moms that understand can really help ease our worries, self doubt and stress. I know a lot of us are always looking for information on how to make money. If you are looking for a new business venture, why not make money helping moms just like yourself? Maybe you could even write a Kindle bestseller

Ok, so you’re asking yourself…”What will I offer to these moms?”. Well, your product is right there in your head. Your memories! Dig them out! Your expertise is the product you can market to moms everywhere. There are situations that we all have encountered and overcome as a moms that other mothers are facing too, especially brand new moms. They could benefit from what we know to make their life a bit easier.
Packaging your Product – EBooks
First of all, put your advice down on paper. Yes…paper, remember that? (They have these tools called pens and pencils and you can write on the paper.) You probably have a lot of good advice to offer but it won’t sound like much unless you can get it out of your brain and into a legible format. If you have a talent for writing this will be less of a challenge for you. You could always take a writing course to freshen up on the finer points of writing outlines and organizing your thoughts on paper, this is something I would like to do and I am looking for an online class. My writing is so “conversational”, I am by no means a pro.
After you get all of those ideas down on paper and organized, then you can format these organized thoughts into an eBook. Everyone has heard of them but might not know exactly what they are. An eBook is essentially a book in digital form. You can create and publish them yourself. For the work that you put into the project, you are greatly rewarded with pure profit.
The first consideration is the length of your eBook. A typical eBook can have as few as 70 pages or as many as 150. People will pay more for longer eBooks of course, but some people love a short concise read.
EBooks are popular media because they can be downloaded or printed in an instant. As soon as the payment is processed, the customer gains access to the eBook. No storage space other than what is on your computer or flash drive is needed.
Selling your EBooks
Consider your market – other moms. Let’s say that the subject of your eBook is getting a toddler through the terrible twos and threes (Let’s be real here….fours, fives, sixes….). Fill your eBooks with information that moms want to know:
- Tips for bedtime
- Disciplinary tips
- Going out in public
- Dealing with mom stress
- True life examples
All of these ideas can be used to build your eBook. These same bullet points can be selling points for your eBook. When creating the eBook website page, use snippets from stories in the book, testimonials from others who have read the book and a partial list of chapters in the eBook as advertising on the page. I am one of those people that read testimonials and reviews before I buy anything!
Condense chapters into short interesting articles that you submit to article directories. Don’t give away too much because you want moms to buy your eBooks. Supply a link to your website in the resource box.
As a mom you can join online forums to share your helpful advice with other moms. Use a link to your eBook page in your signature line for easy access. As you develop a following on these forums, other members will visit your site and see your eBooks.
EBooks can be used to share information that you have learned as a mom with other moms. They are easy to create and with a marketing strategy, can bring large profit to your business.
