If your eBook sales have grown stale, then I have found a new way that eBook conversion can turn your tired eBook into new revenue.
Most people just give up on eBooks when they stop selling because they don’t know how to keep extracting its value.
Thus, eBooks should be created for digital devices with bigger screens such as tablets.
In today’s online marketplace, there are many eBooks on every topic imaginable, so there are just as many competing authors.
Well, I’m an author too so it’s time to look for fresh approaches to re-package and re-publish digital products.
The fact that you are reading this blog post means that you are looking, but want me to share my shortcut with you.
Well, here’s what I have discovered.
Converting your existing eBook to different formats helps to distribute its content to a broader, new audience through Amazon and your website.
Add more than just text and images to standard self-publishing.
Give an interactive edge to your content by using iBooks Author.
Publish your comics and image rich content digitally without paying and arm and a leg for traditional publishing and the middleman.
Create narration, puzzles and interactivity filled eBooks that kids love.
The beauty of all of these features and benefits is that you can convert Word documents into a beautiful digital “book as an app.”
eBook conversion for the digital market should no longer be viewed as “print books,” although nice to have in your library.
What I’ve realized is that print books have to be retrofitted into digital form.
The beauty of eBook conversion is that your book already has a sequence of chapters with an occasion image (because color printing is expensive).
Print books are designed this way because that’s the way they are read.
For example, Secret Of Estate Sales Marketing Success (my how-to book), is in print form only with no images or illustrations.
In contrast, iBooks Author templates, can re-create my estate sale eBook to “demonstrate” how the topic is done with proper sounds, images and video, and optimized for bigger screens.
In addition, it can use your long-form prose to explain the details of the topic..
You can add your own content as easy as dragging and dropping, and customize your eBook to look exactly the way you want.
By re-creating your eBook on IBooks Author, a reader can quickly drill down into the particular topic they are trying to master—while looking at beautiful images and video that help create the vision.
IBooks Author is one among a new league of digital publishers that recognize print books need a new eBook conversion.
