Case Study: My Experience With Publishing
You find that when publishing a book you have the options of either publishing a book yourself or you can have it done the conventional way. But one thing that you have to know is that each of the methods has their advantages and disadvantages of which you need to consider. Today, we are going to look at some of the reasons why most of the people prefer self-publishing over traditional publishing.
One of the benefits of self-publishing is creative control. Meaning that you will take total control over the entire publishing process which often includes writing, editing, designing and printing. You should know that it is also upon you to decide whether you would want to hire an expert to guide you through stages or you will be good to go yourself. One thing that you should know is that you are in control and whatever the decision you make you will not need to consult anybody and thus how it will be.
Apart from that, most of the people also like it because of the greater financial rewards. It will be quite unfortunate and annoying when someone is being paid for your sweat. The good news is that in self-publishing is that every money you get from selling your publication will all be yours without sharing like with conventional publishing. The good news is that you can use the money you generate in paying for more advertising as this will make your book to gain more popularity and pull considerable traffic.
Pricing control is one of the reasons why most of the people prefer self-publishing. One good thing about this is that you will be able to decide the cost of your book. One thing that you should know is that if you sell your book at an affordable price, it will forever break the market. You should also know that with lower price tags you will be in a position to develop many new friends which will improve your readership. Being that you are in total control you will also be in a position to give discounts to your readers. On the other hand, traditional publishing pricing is controlled by a group as this can make the book to be expensive and attract few readerships.
Apart from that, self-publishing will also give you networking opportunities. One good thing with publishing a book is that you will be in a position to visit places and platforms which gives you the opportunity to meet with different groups of people. One good thing with these people you meet is that they can help in popularising your book which will see you generate a lot of sales in return.
