Cost of self Publishing an EbookCosts of self-publishing an ebook
When you ask yourself how much it will cost to make an eBook yourself, this is for you. I' m talking about the sheer minimal capital expenditure needed to make an ebook, and then some of the things you might want to want to invest in to maximise your hit. Yes, you can really make an ebook for nothing.
The only thing you really need is a Word file (I won't charge for a computer here, but in principle you could even put your eBook on a shared computer in the local computer room or something). As soon as you have created the eBook as a PDF file, simply turn it into a PDF file, which is also possible free of charge on-line.
These are the absolutely minimal costs of making an ebook. As soon as the ebook is established, you need a way of transmitting it out to those who order on-line. Or you could e-mail the eBook to anyone who purchases it by hand. "When someone makes a buy, they have the eBook sent to them immediately.
When you use PayPal, this could also be free. However, using PayPal is not the simplest thing for your clients. Instead, I would choose PayPal Pro, which is $30 a months. I use Paypal + Stripe (both included in Ontraport) because I like two different ways for my reader, but when I got into it, I just used Ejunkie + Paypal and it was a great and inexpensive way to get to work.
Again, I would like to stress that an ebook could be produced and released for practically no cost, and that is one of the reason why I so much adore e-books as a neutral mode of earnings. But if you've watched my video and read my blog, then you know I'm a big supporter of outsourced errything.
Yes, it costs more cash - but the return on your initial investments. These are the buzzwords of making a reputable ebook that you might want to consider outsourcing: If you are not yet prepared to buy "Going Pro", you can also consider introducing your own eBook, and as soon as the sale starts to add to the fineness of things and ship the more "Pro" versions to your clients who have already bought.
And I think that ebook designing is very important (more about ebook designing and packing here). Well, it' s not something that interests me, and it wouldn't be well spent the unbelievable amount of gel water it needs to become good at it. Instead, I contract out the designs.
Your eBook should be styled to mirror the contents you put in. When you have invested a great deal of your life making an astonishing eBook, don't go selling yourself with a mishap. In other words, you can load more cash for the ebook.
If the ebook coverage is done nice, it sells better. Investing in good quality designs really does pay off. You' ll need to build a selling page for your eBook. So if you are not a good selling songwriter (which will require a different skills pack than typing the contents for an ebook), then you should really consider swapping out this assignment.
It was a very rewarding for me, because the turnover increases when the copy is done well. I have written my first page (laboriously and slowly) myself. Once I engaged a songwriter to rewrite it, and a design engineer to make it look nice, my book sold fast.
Like I already said, you can only use PayPal to buy your eBook and only buy 2. 9 percent (more or less, as this sometimes changes and is dependent on turnover). But not all your clients have (and want) PayPal. You should at least consider PayPal Pro as it allows clients to make payments with a debit cardholder, even if they do not have a PayPal accoun.
Now I have updated a Stripe and PayPal with Ontraport. So, how much do you really need to self-publish an ebook? In order to be able to answer your questions, you don't need a cent to make and distribute an eBook - really! Choose how much your patience is valuable and then choose whether it's profitable to do it yourself or whether it's profitable to spend your investment in help and tool.
