044 Freaking out about creating an eBook? Just Do It! *Reality Series

October 25, 2011

Have you ever created an eBook?

Forget that – Have you ever FREAKED OUT about creating an eBook?

Listen to This Episode

This episode will inspire you to take action to create a resource that you can give to your subscribers, helping you to grow your mailinglist.

The concept is simple, if you have something of value to give away, you increase the likelihood that your visitors will opt in to your list.

In this episode, I talk with Rochelle Hanson about the struggles she had in putting her eBook together and how she overcame them. It's an inspiration to see what Rochelle has done, and what the immediate effects of this process has been.

She went from not being able to decide on a topic to producing a high quality eBook that's honestly one of the best looking eBooks I've seen (and I'm not just saying that because we're friends). Take a look at the following screenshots and you'll see what I mean:

See what I mean?

  • Why it was so difficult for Rochelle to decide on a topic
  • How she ended up deciding on a direction to go
  • How she was able to do it so quickly after making a decision
  • The help that she got to make it AWESOME
  • What she plans on producing next to take her blogging to the next level
  • How having an eBook made her subscriber count jump overnight

I also talk about different options for creating something of value. It's not all about eBooks. There are many ways that you can create a resource of value to help grow your list, and I want you to be aware of them, and to be able to take action.

If you need some inspiration to help you take your online business to the next level, it's all in here.

    Hello Rochelle and Leslie,

    Just wanted to congratulate you on finishing your first ebook! 🙂

    You’ve come up with a beautiful product. I just joined your list and downloaded the book, and I’m excited to give it a read this afternoon.

    I have to say that I started feeling a little intimidated while listening to the podcast. I think I’m in the same spot with my product that you were when you said that the product seemed to change every time you sat down to work on it. Sort of freaks me out! 🙂 Maybe I’m just finding ways to delay completion, because finishing it would mean having to put it out there for the world. Yikes!

    Wishing you continued success with Breaking Cravings!

      Hi Matt! Thanks for your encouraging words!!
      I’m so glad you got a copy of Breaking Cravings.
      I hope you really enjoy the book 🙂

      Let me tell you, I know what you’re going through with the freaking out thing lol.
      But freaking out just wastes time, really lol.
      If you can just hone in on a story that is real to you, and use that as your guide, people will appreciate the fact that you were honest with them and they will respect you for that.

      I look forward to seeing what you will come up with Matt!
      If it’s real, people will love it.
      So just be yourself, and you’ll rock the world!

      All the best,
