Self-publishing takes a great idea for a book, a good execution of its writing, and some online common sense.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
There’s no trick to learning how to be number one on Amazon, said a recent article from Digital Marketer’s website. There needs to be a great idea for a book, a good execution of its writing, and some online common sense. Aside from that, the article said a little guidance and advice will boost any book to the top of the bestseller list in no time.
That’s why Digital Marketer has decided to offer one of its most ambitious programs to date: the Number One Book System. It is designed to take authors through every step of the eBook-writing process, from idea inception to digital formatting to promotion and sales production, said the article.
Contrary to the long and drawn out process of getting a print publishing deal, self-publishing through Amazon is revolutionizing the entire literary world. Some may think their eBooks couldn’t hold a candle to a mass marketed, $29.95 hardcover from a major publishing house. However, the article said digital eBooks have surpassed many print books in sales, and have even begun to outsell adult fiction, one of the biggest sectors.
Book Stats, part of the Center for Publishing Market Data, executed a survey that captured the size and scope of the US publishing industry.
“In the overall Trade sector (encompassing Fiction and Non-Fiction for Children, Young Adults and Adults), eBooks’ net sales revenue more than doubled in 2011 vs. 2010. This significant growth was particularly fueled by eBooks’ performance in the Adult Fiction segment where, for the first time, it ranked #1 for the year in net revenue among all individual print and electronic formats,” Book Stats said in their news release.
The article said that means the information inside the Number One Book System will be able to get any author access to this massive sales shift going on in the book world. Amazon is the new Barnes and Noble, and the multitude of credit card-holding customers that browse Amazon’s digital shelves have become a stronger and more devoted source of writer revenue, according to the article.
Speaking of revenue, self-publishing can earn royalty rates far beyond what a print publisher could offer. Up to 70% of all digital sales of an eBook are an author’s to keep, while average new author royalties at a print publisher ranges from 7-8%, the article said. Though the prices are almost certainly lower with eBooks, the Number One Book System will show writers how to earn additional income from alternative streams of book sales.
