10 Ways to Re-Purpose Public Domain Content

In the sense of intellectual property, works in the public domain are those whose exclusive intellectual property rights have expired, have been forfeited, or are inapplicable. This applies to most type of work which includes written work such as transcripts, books and magazines.

Public Domain materials will give you the right to sell a product with no limitations. But that’s not even the best part. The best part is that you can also edit the a public domain material to your heart’s content, thereby helping it to better fit your branding and your message, or altering it to add value. What this also means is that you’re free to re-use the content in other ways too.

Here are some quick ideas you of products you can create with public domain content.

Make a Video

You can create a slideshow using the content from an ebook, or you can read it out and thereby ‘perform’ said content.

Make a Podcast

Likewise, you can perform the content without any visuals to accompany it and that way make an audio book or a series of podcast episodes.

Make a Larger Book/Package

Want to offer even more value than you already are? Then how about combining content from multiple Ebooks into an ultimate package of some sort. This way, you can give someone a truly comprehensive experience that will be worth more than the asking price of each book individually.

Make Multiple Shorter Ebooks

A clever way to charge more for your ebooks is potentially to separate them into multiple shorter books. This way you can create a series, with each one encouraging your visitors to read the rest.

Make a Short Report

A report is normally a short PDF that provides information on a particular topic or subject matter. If you can take a single chapter from your book or a forward, then this can be used as an incentive to collect more downloads.

Make a Member’s Site

Or why not take your ebook entirely apart and seal it behind a pay-wall? This way, you can sell access to a repository of information.

Make a Real Book

Using Lulu or Amazon, you can self-publish your ebook and start selling it as a real, hard-copy tome!

Make a Kindle Book

Or how about uploading it to Kindle and selling it through the Kindle store?

Make Emails

Email marketing is an incredibly powerful form of marketing and by breaking your ebook down into chapters, it will lend itself perfectly to becoming an ezine.

Make an App

If you’re feeling really ambitious, then you could even turn your ebook into an app!

10 Quick Tips For Writing Your Own eBook

If you want to start making money from eBook sales then your options are to outsource the content creation to a third party, or to try and write it yourself. If you can write the product yourself then this is actually the preferable choice as it will mean that you retain full control over the outcome of the product and that you can offer some genuine insight and something truly new. Hiring a writer will usually result in a passable book that covers all the basics – but if you have something truly special to say you really need to say it yourself.

Writing an eBook is hard though, which is why you should follow these ten tips that can really help:

Plan a Structure

If you're writing a blog post then you can probably get away with making it up as you go along. With an eBook though, it really does pay to have at least a loose structure in mind first so spend some time planning this out.

Read Other Books in Your Niche

This is a great way to get inspiration for your own ideas and to become better versed in the subject matter.

Write Every Day

Writing that much content takes discipline. Make your aim to write everyday – even if you only write a paragraph that's better than writing nothing at all.

Add Images and Tables

If you want to add value to your eBook and you're not sure about your writing quality, then adding images and tables is a great way to give your product more bang for the buck.

Choose a Subject You Know

There's no point in writing something you know nothing about. Pick a subject matter you're an expert in – if that's your career, then that's fine!

Choose a Subject You Enjoy

More important still, make sure that the subject you're writing about is one you enjoy. That way you'll be more motivated and your enthusiasm will come across in your writing.

Pick a Small Niche

That said, writing a fitness book will mean going up against every other eBook author on the planet. Try to pick a niche that's less saturated with a clear route to market.

Get it Proofread

Even if you are the best writer in the world, it's very difficult to spot your own typos and errors. Hire a proofreader to ensure absolute professionalism.

Focus on the Value Proposition

Your value proposition is defined as the way in which your book is going to change the life of the person reading. Will they be richer? Stronger? Smarter? Famous? Focus on this and tie each point into that.

Say Something New

Finally, make sure to say something new. Don't just rehash old ideas – come up with something that's completely your own!

Sources For Public Domain Posters To Print & Sell

Are you aware that the main poster in the post is in public domain. Yes, the character Rosie which was use during the world war is now copyright free. This means you can use the image to create your own product or simply sell it as poster print out. If you are not into war memorabilia, don't worry there are more than just war related posters available for you to download and reprint to sell. Check out my favourite sources to see what are available.

This site appeals to me because it has kindly categorise the files and have high resolution files for you to download. They also have a brief history of the poster so you are aware why they were produced in the first place.. Use the posters to add more visuals to your work or print them as is to resell.

This site offers a wide range of vintage graphics & images instead of just posters. There are selective pictures which are made available to be downloaded by premium membership with a fee but there should be enough free ones to get you by.

Have fun printing and remixing them!
