Self-publishing your eBook is a surefire way to boost your sales and drive up your exposure. Really! I can’t tell you how may authors I’ve worked with on their new titles who don’t realize there are some really strategic benefits to doing this.
And there are two situations where this is really applicable:
Situation one is if you’re using a small publisher or publishing service and simply assume you need to use them for every edition of your book. Part of the allure is the convenience factor. Totally fair!
Situation number two is that you’re thinking you might want to first test the market with your print book. Maybe you’re thinking you’ll make more money by sticking to print. Maybe you’re planning on an eBook but haven’t committed to a release date.
For situation number one, just know that it can be great getting assistance for your print book. They’ll help secure distribution, make your title more accessible to libraries; the list goes on for print benefits.
But the tips below will hopefully convince you why you’ll want to self-publish your eBook and maintain more control from day one!
If you resonate more with the second situation, then everything I’m about to cover automatically applies, so let’s get rolling on the good stuff!
I’d love to know which of these benefits surprised you the most and PLEASE share on social!
