Writing more ebooks

Nightshift I read somewhere that after you get your site up and your ebook finish you should immediately start writing your follow up ebooks even if the first one hasn't started making any sales.  How can i do this, I just don't have the money or the time, as i am still promoting my first ebook site.  its been up since jan.  I get about 10 visitors a day and sold 2 books so i really don't feel i need to move on yet.  would you move on?  you can check out the ebook site, don't think i am suppose to put it here and if it gets erased i did put it in my profile

jmiguy If I were you, I would focus 95% of your energy and effort on marketing and promoting your finished product.

Spend the other 5% on developing new material. It's always a good idea to have multiple products to sell, but I think your time is much better spent marketing an existing product, especially if it's doing well in sales.

jbsmith Nightshift, here's what I would do...

1. Have a goal for where you want your business to go - financial and in terms of what value you want to bring to the market beyond your first ebook.  Do you want to be the leader and dominate your market?  If so, what sorts of products will you need to offer to do that?  Seminars, full courses, talks, membership site -etc...  
Do yourself a favor and take the opportunity now to plan where you want your business to go

2. Re-design your site - it currently does not look professional, could be much more effective and MUST have an opt-in capability so that you can start building a list.  Your list will be powerful for both converting more visitors into buyers for your current ebook and for tapping into to discover future product ideas and opportunities

3. Assuming you have thoroughly tested your market and ideas for their commercial viability, then consider outsourcing some of the development of your next product to help you get your next product out.  I've done this where I get a contractor to either write part of the book or at least do research for areas I don't have current information.  Not a big fan of outsourcing complete development - but that may be viable if you can find the right freelancer.

4. Finally, you should consider methods of generating traffic - blogs, articles, affiliates are all great methods.

Hope this helps...

Storyman JBSmith,

Good advice.

What creates the most traffic to your site? Adwords? Organic searches? Link sharing? Etcetra.
