An e-book is a book on a specific topic that is available in a downloadable format, mostly PDF. There are also other formats, such as .mobi (to read on Amazon Kindle), and .epub (to read on Barnes and Noble Nook and other e-readers).
These e-books provide a variety of benefits for marketers, including:
- Generating new email subscribers
- Repurposing content you’ve previously written
- Establishing your authority
- Pre-selling your paid product
E-books provide something of value for customers while capturing information for the marketers who create them.
We can argue about which software is the best optimum solution in creating the perfect e-book. I highly recommend going for the one that you’re most comfortable with.
For me, I prefer not to over-complicate it, therefore I prefer Libre Office, which is similar to Open Office, but it has a nicer interface.

You have an idea. You know who your target market is and you know you want to sell it, but something is stopping you.
Maybe it’s the process. Maybe you don’t know how you’re going to market it once you’re done writing it.
Today I want to eliminate one of the obstacles that might be in your way. Formatting and design.
I created the templates using Libre Office for a few reasons.
- It’s real easy to use.
- Most people have this or Open Office installed in their computer
