An easy way to market your business is by using special reports.
A special report can range from a long article to a report on a current topic to a short e-book. If you’re a novice writer, it will be time effective and financially sound to use public domain magazine articles for your special report instead of writing your own or hiring someone else. For the experienced writer, you can re-write these articles by adding or deleting content to suit your needs and writing style.
Once you’ve decided on the topic for your special report, look for public domain magazines by using search engines on the Internet, purchasing the magazines and thumbing through them, and exploring your local library. (You may also want to try sites like eBay and Craigslist to see if someone has any listed for sale.) Save and read each article related to your topic, no matter how broad the spectrum may be.
It might be necessary to change some of the content of the original public domain magazine article to fit your needs. You may want your special report to be in a question-answer format or update specific information to fill a need. Because these articles are public domain, there is no copyright law connected to them. You may change what you like while keeping the credit of the modified public domain magazine article.
To create a report, find articles related to a specific topic. Find a common thread between the articles, i.e. a recurring problem or issue. It could be something that is still being experienced today.
Start your special report with an introduction of your topic, followed by relevant information or facts found in the public domain magazine articles. Charts, graphs and pictures are always helpful to the visual reader.
An e-book can be generated using slightly different tactics. For instance, an e-book on bird watching can include chapters reviewing the best places for bird watching, tools needed for bird watching, and specific birds to watch for in specific parts of the land. There is no need for information to flow from one chapter to the next.
You can market your business using these special reports by selling or freely distributing them on blogs, your business Web site, or submitting a short version to your local newspaper.
Create your special reports with your business in mind, making sure you mention your name and business in the byline of your special report. Display your knowledge of your skill set through compiling and customizing public domain magazine articles to make special reports. … And you will save time and money by doing so.
