How Long Is A Short Report?

9 replies
Alright Guys

I am just in the process of putting the finishing touches together my upcoming ebook called Unlocking The Power To Your Success, I am thinking alongside this ebook that I would like to create some short reports to add more value to the package and justr checking to see how long a short report should be before it isn't class as a short report. Got loads of stuff that I can write about

    'Short reports' are usually on a single specific topic, so however long it takes you to have your say. 4-5 pages?

    The 2nd Amendment, 1789 - The Original Homeland Security.

    Gun control means never having to say, "I missed you."

    7-15 pages is an ideal length, recommended by experts like JDBrown, targeted to very specific area or aspect in a market...

      Yes I would agree with this, I would aim for about 15 pages, i think 4-5 is too short. When ever i have had a 4-5 page report, I have ended by saying to myself...is that all.

        This is really subjective so go with your best judgment. I don't count anything as an ebook until it runs 30 pages, personally.

        Here's what I use for my terminology (everyone is different):

        Mini Report (app. 1500 words / 4-6 pages)
        Short Report (app. 3000 words / 9-11 pages)
        Medium Report (app. 5000 words / 15-17 pages)
        Long Report (app. 7000 words, 22-24 pages)
        Short Ebook (app. 10,000 words / 32-34 pages)
        Medium Ebook (app. 15,000 words / 50 pages)

    I call a short report anything under 10 pages.

    LOL - I love how everyone is chucking around numbers...

    So I guess, the end result is that a short report is anything from 4-15 pages, so just meet them in the middle and say it's around 10 pages
