    You could outsource it to someone to write it. Why don't you want to write it yourself? It's not hard to turn a document into a PDF. Outsourcing it would be your best bet.

      Absolutely - I do this all the time

      You can use iWriter : Article Writing Service | Get Content For Your Website, Cheap! - get a 1000 or 2000 word article (use 5 star writers)

      OR you can find a writer yourself via www.odesk.com and pay a flat $10.00 for a book of 1000-2000 words or so. Word to the wise though, if you use odesk - ask for examples before hand from EACH applicant

      This is easy, and something I do all the time :-D

      Good luck

    You will have to hire a copywriter/ghostwriter. In your negotiations you have them sign releases, and put your name as the author in the final product.

    it's somewhat common.

    Sure - here are a few ways:

    1. Interview experts (skype, phone, in-person) and have those interviews transcribed into text so you have both an audio/video product as well as an eventual ebook. The editing can be outsourced or you can move things around and check things yourself

    2. Record yourself - one of our books in an alternative health field I recorded myself "talking" several of the initial chapters and had these audios transcribed - not only was this faster, less work, but I had a differentiator from other Clickbank products because I had the audio version in the bag.

    3. Outsource the writing entirely...still suggest you do the outlining and then farm out projects as either article or reports piecemeal which is less expenive than posting an entire ebook project

    4. Public domain...I have used public domain material in the past to augment my own content. Ex. a book we wrote that relied on Yoga as a technique for achieving the end objective I located several public domain works that both introduced Yoga and provided several yoga techniques, diagrams and such... I outsourced the rest of this ebook for under $300 and to date it has made me 5-figures closing in on 6-figures.

    5. PLR (Private Label Rights) material where you get the license to redistribute and alter the content...not a huge fan of this as it takes so much time to find useful information, but certain PLR may do a good job of filling in partial content for your ebook

    6. Partnership - I have also coached a marketer who partnered with content experts sharing profits where the expert did the writing while the marketer did the marketing, there are many "experts" out there today that if approached the right way or hit at the right time would love to work with astute marketers to help them create another line of income and get their knowledge out into the marketplace

    Just a few thoughts :-)

      Seriously? How cheap are you, you want to be able to CREATE an e-book without writing it, and now you want it for free?

      I already gave you TWO great resources above on where to outsource your book for a reasonable price, but you just ignore that and everybody elses comments and ask this?

      You're clearly not meant for this type of business - you don't ALWAYS have to spend money to make money with IM, but if you want to write a kindle book - you a.) write it yourself or b.) outsource it - there are no magical websites on the web that will let you COPY their content and publish it as your own e-book for free.

    One would think that if you had an audio recording or video with the content you want in the ebook and went looking on Fiverr or Elance you could find someone who would convert that content over into an ebook.

    Do you mean that you want to write an ebook without writing it and without paying someone else to write it for you, or whatever expenses you may have?

    What else do you want?

          Oliver,

          If I purchased your book and found out it was simply content ripped off from a web site, I would
          • get my money back (chargeback),
          • let the owner of the web site in question have all the information I could get about you,
          • give your book negative reviews, and
          • let anyone else that cared know exactly what you were doing

          I have had my own content stolen before and it is not something that most intellectual property owners tolerate when they learn about it.

        What value would your book have, if you "created" it that way?

        If that isn't something that matters to you, then as rightly observed above, you're going to have rather a rough ride.

          I'll answer that.

          No Value at all.

          As somebody else pointed out, he/she just wants a free easy ride to online profits....

        Looking for that free, lazy ride huh?

        I actually saw a book at Amazon the other day that had an inflammatory title. Something like - what the President knows about the economy. And inside it was a blank notebook.
        I guess you could copy that example.

        Yeah sounds like a blank book could be your easiest option. Then you would only have to write the title (can you manage that?)

        Not that they were making many sales.

        Yes, actually there is.

        Just do some research about public domain. I'm pretty sure everything before 1920 is safe to use, but after that, the law can get kind of messy.

        Some of it is very good, too. If you need a new idea, sometimes all you need to do is read an old book

        "Obvious Adams," and "Scientific Advertising" are two that I believe are in the public domain.

    Hire a ghostwriter. Or if you want to get product/ebook done faster... "speak" the ebook. Use a software like Dragon Naturally Speaking software. It's very good.

    Do you also have the intention to sell this ebook after copying someone else’s words?

    And perhaps become a millionaire?

    What a brilliant idea!

    Plr is about the closest to getting free and no work. But you'd have to put it together and edit it so it sounds good. I suppose you could find all the plr content you want to use and then outsource it to someone to put together and edit.

    Why not go out into the desert and find yourself a lamp. Then rub it and a genie will appear. Then you can ask him to magically create an ebook for you.

    Unless you are prepared to do all of the work yourself, you would need to pay somebody to do it for you.

    You don't get money for nothing.

    It is very possible to outsource. You can come up with an outline of what you want to write and go to oDesk and hire a ghost writer. In my opinion, unless you are doing a marketing opportunity Ebook, I would not attach my name to it so you can wash, rinse, repeat in several niches.

    Why do you not want to write an E-book yourself Oliver? The only way I see that you can come up with an eBook then is to hire a ghostwriter. It’s either you contact a company that can help or look for a freelancer. There’s Elance and Odesk that you can go to—lots of great writers you can find from these sites.

    Just make sure that you’re hiring the right writer, okay? Quality content is very important.

      Actually you didn't ask anything about free or paid sites in your OP.

      Here is the answer to your question.

      Yes, you can get others to write it for you. They're not charity workers though so will need paying.

      There are no sites where you can just copy someone elses work but more importantly in response to this part...

      And, it's a good idea to create eBook without writing it ? i mean will i get a few sales from it ?
      It is a good idea if the writer is good and they've been paid but we know that's not what you want to do, so in light of the fact you want to just copy someone elses book from a website, I doubt you'll get any sales from it all.

    You sound like you're not really serious, but here's a serious suggestion. Learn how to format books for Kindle Direct Publishing. Find a blog with a long history of good content. Offer to take their best posts and make an ebook out of them. Share the proceeds or just do it for the experience and maybe a co-author spiff on the book.

    Jeff already mentioned some of the best ways.

    Interview an expert
    Hire a ghostwriter
    Rewrite PLR
    Record it and have someone transcribe it for you.
    Or use software such as Dragon naturally speaking.

    One thing to think about is this; are you trying to make a fast buck with one time sales or build a business? If you sell people junk the first time they won't come back to buy your next product.

    Yes of course you could outsource it, find a ghostwriter to do that for you... but should you do it? I don't think it's worth it, better make a list of all the things you are good at and try to write something yourself!

    Doing it yourself (at least once) give you an experience and insight into the whole creation process and that can be very useful if you ever decide to outsource this in future.

    There is no substitute to your own work, I am afraid.
