    Book Marketing Strategy: The Real Costs of Self-Publishing a Book

    in Entrepreneur

    The world of self-publishing looks fairly simple, right? I mean, you write a manuscript using Microsoft Word, design a cover using Adobe Photoshop, open a free (Amazon) Createspace or (Ingram) Lightning Source account, upload your files, and sit back and watch your book sales profits skyrocket - almost like magic - overnight. Sound easy, huh? So then, why do most self-published authors only sell, on average, 200 books before their title hits the wall? Even as a self-published author of only one title, you must still conduct business. And, as a business owner (entrepreneur), you must comprehensively understand the rules of engagement - like how much you need to spend and when you might expect to gain a return on your investment. Most self-published authors are 99% clueless when it comes to realistic expectations and how much money they will realistically spend throughout their self-publishing process. So then, what are the REAL costs of self-publishing a book? That is our focus on this edition of, “The Strategist Radio LIVE."
