If you’ve been getting my weekly tips for any length of time, you know how much I love finding new apps and plugins and software that make the things I need to do easier and more efficient. When I find something I really like, I then share them with you!
If you are an author … through a traditional publishing company or self-published; hard copy, soft copy or eBook, and your book isn’t available on Amazon in their Kindle eBook format, you are limiting your reach and missing out on a growing market for book sales. While studies show more Americans still prefer holding a physical book in their hot little hands, the number of those who prefer an e-reader like Amazon’s Kindle is growing. Pew Research Center’s article A Snapshot of Reading in America in 2013 stated the following: “As of January 2014, some 76% of American adults ages 18 and older said that they read at least one book in the past year. Almost seven in ten adults (69%) read a book in print in the past 12 months, while 28% read an e-book, and 14% listened to an audio book.”
I’ll bet you already have a lot of content you can use!
You know all of those blog posts and newsletter articles you’ve put out over the years? Week after week, month after month of content. Much of it just sitting in a file or on your blog or in your newsletter reserve. Sitting. Waiting. For what?
You most likely have tons and tons of great content just sitting there begging to be re-purposed. You probably even have enough to put together a great eBook. Maybe two, so what’s stopping you!
You don’t need to be a designer!
Don’t let the ebook uglies get you down, or prevent you from getting that hot new ebook out to the masses. Have your Virtual Assistant add design elements and format it so it’s as pretty to look at as it is to read.
