When it comes to publishing, there are some tips that may be really helpful, especially for new e-book publishers or authors who are looking for a good advice to boost their sales. For those who start their careers as e-book publishers here are some tips to consider.
E-book publishers should always start their careers with a limited number of titles. A large number of titles always makes things harder even for experienced publishers. Handling the converting and distributing process of a long list of titles along with the associated fees is a really tough job. A few dozens of titles is a good amount to start with. So focus your attention on a limited list of bestsellers and new releases and you will enjoy the benefits of a cost-effective and profitable initial plan.
Pay attention to details from the beginning. It’s important to start with no more than 10 e-book files at a time. Don’t take on more than you can cope with or you will end up with a low-quality product and many errors in the supply chain. Correct your titles to increase your sales. Pay attention to covers, meta-data and content files. Also provide a good review of the books content to help engage your prospect buyers.
For new authors it’s always a good idea to give away your e-books for free for a limited period of time, never more than 90 days. Free is the best way to generate traffic, increase the interest in your brand and record the reception for future sales. Offer limited period discounts too.
Sell your e-books through multiple e-book stores around the world. There are many large and smaller e-book stores that can help you to boost your e-book sales.
There are also many blogs, websites, social media pages and newsletters that promote e-books. Having your titles on these websites can help you generate lots of downloads. So get in contact with different administrators of these specialized websites, and put your titles in full view of users.
Sales feedback is also important when finding solutions to maximize sales. Make sure you include links in the back of your books to redirect customers to others of your titles.
Make sure your e-books are available in deferent formats to satisfy every reader’s preferences. Some of them prefer reading on PC, others prefer reading on kindle, smart phones or iPads. So, make sure your e-books are available in multiple file formats.
There are so many tips to help you maximize your sales. Take the suggestions above, design a smart business plan, use all these tools to promote your titles and work hard. Your efforts will be rewarded!
