Publisher vs Self-Publishing: The Benefits of Both

Jul 25, 2008
People tend to see the problems associated with both ways of getting a book published and they stop trying; this is actually why most people never write a book. The first step of finding an agent, if you're trying the big New York publisher route, is challenging and it's not easy to get the publisher to take a book and pay in advance.

The self publishing route is not easy either. Right away you are faced with dozens of technically difficult tasks, so the learning curve starts off very steep. This route is also a little pricy; being between $30,000 and $40,000 by the time it's all done.

However, there is a new alternative for the bright person who wants to both write a book and use it to make money. There are three methods for book publishing that anyone can use to liquidate problems and see results.

Strategy 1 - Retain your copyrights if at all possible

Being in control and making money from your book are the two biggest benefits to seek. You will enjoy these two self-publishing benefits if you find a New York Publisher that doesn't buy the copyright to your book, but instead encourages you to use as much of the content of your book as you want to create other products that will make you money.

Strategy 2 - Get the widest distribution possible for your book.

The biggest benefit of a New York Publisher is the wide distribution of your book. Proactively choosing a publisher with wide dissemination will give you the advantage of sustaining higher sales. This will exponentially increase your income, because each book sold in a bookstore will bring the reader back to your website, where you will sell them your other products.

3rd Strategy - Construct a book marketing plan that allows you to convert your book into a business.

Yet another amazing benefit of choosing a New York Publisher is a great marketing plan, but you're going to take it to a new level. Right off the bat, when you have a book idea, start making it into a bestselling business. This way you will be making money way before your book is published, and this has the potential to produce more profit than you would with a publisher's advance. You will also enjoy the high sales because all of your products will sell the book with it is printed and ready to be shipped.

ACTION POINT: To have the best of both worlds when you write a book, proactive use the 4 strategies above to look for the right publisher. You?ll make a profit through the entire procedure from the book idea to New York Times Bestseller. You?ll create a book that is an automatic bestseller and could even earn you a passive 6 or 7-figure income.
