What is the reason you write? To sell? To amuse? To generate a mailing list? All of the above?
You want your readers to keep coming back to your site. Or continue to read your books. So you spend valuable time at the keyboard. Writing. Thinking. Writing. Until you come up with a great piece.
It’s good. It says what you want to say. It might even bring in some income.
But is it entertaining?
If you respond “not really….” I have a solution.
It’s creative, it’s fun, it’s educational.
And it holds people’s interest. Long enough to make your readers say, “This is a cool blog / website / book. I think I’ll come back.”
It’s a resource of information that shows your readers that you think in a creative way. It adds value to your content. And.it’s easy to find….
Well…if easy means spending hours searching for just the right bit of information that matches your vision and your voice.
You see, just any old piece of knowledge won’t do it for you. Throw in a random tidbit and people will read it, but not quite get why it’s there.
So what can change readers into customers?
Imagine an e-book that has a collection of trivia specific to your business.
Let’s say you’re a food critic. Could you use a trivia book detailing the history of famous recipes?
What if you write about travel? I bet a trivia collection about the night life in European ports sounds good.
Maybe you blog for the home school market. How about a collection on the lives of Native Americans who were elected to government positions?
Resource books of trivia, filled only with the data you require, can be a valuable addition to your reference materials. I’m working on a project that will create short, easy to digest, e-books, each with trivia on one topic – the one YOU need.
