By now you have all the great ways that hiring a VA can make your life easier, from everything to managing your calendar to handling your customer service calls. Did you also know that your VA can help your business earn money as well? I know sounds too good to be true but it’s not. Your VA can help you write an E-book. You are probably thinking there you have no need for an e-book aren’t ya? Did you know that Amazon just recently reported that they sell more Kindle books than hardback books? That got your attention didn’t it? Everyone these days has an e-reader, from small children to grandmothers. That is a pretty broad sales market you may be missing out on.

So now you are probably saying to yourself  I can’t write an e-book I don’t have anything to put in it. Well you are wrong! Your VA can take any number of things and in no time you can have your first e-book published on Nook or Kindle. Remember those frequently asked questions on your website? Answer those and turn that into an e-book. Take a series of articles from those monthly newsletters that you send out, combine a few and Voila! You can put together a list of quick tips or write a step by step how to and before you know it you have an e-book. Remember that free report you give away when users sign up for your mailing list well now it can be an e-book. Pretty much anything can be turned into an e-book, as they say the sky is the limit! You don’t even have to sell your e-books; you can use them as a great marketing tool.

You may be thinking why would you want to waste your time with cheap or free e-books. Well once you establish yourself as an expert in your field you will have potential clients and customers seeking you out to do business instead of you chasing them down. Those small sales will lead to people wanting to work with you, which means they buy the bigger packages or products. Make sure to put your contact information and website in the e-book and let it do all the work of driving traffic to your website. More traffic equals more sales. You VA won’t need any special tools to write your e-book either. And there are no monthly accounts that you have to sign up for. Just sign up for an amazon account and you have published your first e-book.  So what are you waiting for get your VA and start publishing your e-books today!
