Before you start writing your ebook, you are going to need to do your research and make sure that the facts you quote or the little bits of information from experts you provide are accurate. Here are 3 tips to help you do the research and provide interesting accurate information.
Tip #1 Read Other Similar Ebooks and Books
This might seem obvious, but too often it is overlooked. Whatever topic you plan to write on, you should be able to find similar ebooks and books. If you are not able to find other material you should actually rethink whether that is a good topic to write on as it might be too exclusive. When you are researching these books you can skim them – you don’t have to read the book in its entirety. You are just looking at it to get some additional ideas of what areas of your topic might work well in a book or even what areas of your topic have not been addressed. It’s an excellent guide to help you determine what content you’ll put in your book.
Tip #2 Set Aside Time for Your Research
One of the most common mistakes that writers make is to spend too much time in the research stage. It’s so easy to do. You are constantly finding new information, which is leading you to more new information, then to more and… well on it goes. So set a time limit – it could be a couple of days or a couple of weeks. It will depend largely on what your topic is and how big your ebook is going to be.
Tip #3 Make Sure Your Facts are Facts
If you are searching online for your facts and statistics you need to make sure that they are correct. There is tons of misinformation online and you have to make sure that you are not quoting this information to your readers. Many authors and content writers will make up facts. Sad but true! So take the time to verify this information from reputable sites and then you won’t be adding to an already growing problem. In fact, it’s a good idea to quote the sources you use either within your text or with references at the back of your book.
