There’s been a lot of talk in the Facebook groups I’m in about selling ebooks. And it’s great timing, because next month my webinar will be talking all about how to turn your old content, specifically audios and videos, into ebooks for more passive income. I’m very excited about this event and hope you’ll sign up in the box at the end of this post.
However one thing that’s come up a lot is only selling on Amazon. Maybe it’s because I’m coming at this from an author and publisher standpoint, or maybe it’s just my firm belief in giving customers what they want where and when they want it.
Please! Stop thinking about Amazon as the ONLY place to sell ebooks. It’s not. Not by a huge, crazy big long shot. Not at all!I want you to stop thinking about Amazon as the only place to sell ebooks. Click To Tweet
Look, as an entrepreneur (and let’s be honest, as an author) you want to publish your own books so you can a) stay in control of your publishing destiny and b) reach more people. Maybe those readers are just that–readers–or maybe they’re the client you want to land who will pay you a lot of money for what you do. Either way, you want to reach people.
So why the hell would you limit yourself to just one vendor?
Okay, if you can’t tell I’m a little passionate about this.
Off the top of my head I can think of five vendors–and this doesn’t include your own website which if you’re not selling from you’re leaving a heap ton of money on the table–where I upload my books. Why? Because each vendor reaches a different audience.Every #ebook vendor reaches a different audience. Why limit yourself to those who only visit Amazon? Click To Tweet
I won’t lie and say Amazon is the biggest piece of the pie, but it’s not the entire pie. Why leave pieces of pie (and money) on the table when you can have the whole thing?
Think about that. And don’t forget to sign up for my webinar, because this is one of the topics I’ll be covering.
