Gobala explained his passion is in reading and he gain knowledge from them. His personal preference is to write and sell e-books using the mini site model which is easy to set up. It’s direct-to-the-point information about the e-books or services that he has to offer.
Gobala used a tool called ASKDatabase (http://www.askdatabasesystem.com/), a survery software that allows him to get questions and inquiries from the list (or website) and analyze results for trends. By using the survey, he is able to get a vision of what he had to do. He realized what are the problems faced by most people taking the survey.
The question was : “Would someone buy an e-book that was only 12 pages long, and covered such a narrow topic?” To learn more, you can read an incredible e-book called Desperate Buyers only by Alexis Dawes (http://www.desperatebuyersguide.com/). The main points is that if your topic focused on a desperate need; and showed others how to solve it based on your own experience, it will sell beyond your wildest expectations. Plus, you can charge a premium for it and people would gladly pay.
If you want to sell almost any kind of product on the internet, or even start your own blog and make money off advertising, you must first find a market. Hence you must do some reserach first – in the form of keyword search example use Google or keyword country (http://www.keywordcountry.com/)
Step 3: Find your primary keyword, secondary keywords and long tail.
Example the author clicked on guitar > electric guitar > cheap electric guitar. This is the primary keyword, and is the main keyword that he will target on the blog. All other keywords contained under these keywords are secondary keywords.
If you click further from cheap electric guitar or any of the contained keywords, you’ll find lesser keywords, usually ranging from 5-500 searches per month, called the long tail keywords. These long tail keywords are usually too small to become the main keyword for your blog, but when you add them up they usually become bigger than your primary keyword.
Primary keyword : use as main title of the blog, domain name etc.
Secondary keyword : use as optional tagline for blog, category name, create new pages with secondary keyword.
Long tail keyword : use to create individual posts example I create a new post called “cheap gibson les paul electric guitar”
Keywords are just numbers; they tell you how much search traffic you can get, but they don’t tell you how to turn that traffic intro cash.

Once in a blue moon you may come up with something totally original, but mostly anything you want to say has already been said before. Now if you copy word for word, that is called pirary. But if you copy many people and paraphrase them, it’s called research. So how can you write a good article on a topic you just discovered yesterday?
How can you do it?
1) Research. Type in a few keywords in Google.com and see what results come up. Collect about 10-20 URLs of the articles that you want to use and write them down / save it.
2) Paraphrase sentences. Take one line from the first article that you like and paraphrase it. You can change the actual words without changing the meaning of the sentence.
3) Divide content. Divide your content into logical paragraphs. If possible, talk about one idea in one paragraph. Dividing the content will establish a flow of ideas that keep the visitor reading for more.
4) Quote the source.
5) Write an introduction.
6) Write conclusion.
