Why Women in Their 30s are Winning at Writing Successful eBooks
This post is mainly directed at women (but men are allowed to read, too!). The meteoric rise of E.L. James and the “50 Shades of Mega Dollars” has caused everyone to sit up and take notice.
What once was an industry dominated by mega publishing houses and powerhouse male thrillers, now has seemed to split wide open and beckoned women to come on in. According to the author, there are 3 reasons why:
1) We have the TECHNOLOGY – Anybody can write an e-book, but marketing it is altogether different, and a highly specific skill.
2) We have the MOTIVATION – Women are looking for ways to supplement their family’s income in this stretched society. When we want to learn how to do something, we put our all into figuring it out.
3) We have the GUTS – You had better have good content, or your efforts are dead in the water. With all the competition out there at Amazon, and the other digital marketplaces, you need to stand out! Women have instinct, and it serves us well in this arena.
I do agree with the author that the “50 Shades” are racy, but I do not agree that they are magnetic. I could hardly finish the first book, and the anemic content definitely did not lead me to want to read the second. This proves the point that magnetic marketing can carry even the worst book to the heights of greatness.
