It is essential to note that you can either publish a book yourself or you can go the conventional way. Also, it is also good to know that some challenges and benefits are attached to either of the methods. 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. The good news with self-publishing is that you will be in a position to take full control of all the processes such as writing, editing, design and printing out the publication. Besides, you will also be in a position to decide whether to engage a professional to help you with the stages or not. Remember that you are your boss and whatever you decide is final you don’t have to consult anybody.
It is also beneficial to choose self-publishing over traditional one because of the greater financial rewards. It will be quite unfortunate and annoying when someone is being paid for your sweat. You find that when you choose self-publishing you will be in a position to get every single coin from the books you sold without sharing with anyone like the traditional publishing. One good thing about this is that you will be in a place to use your hard earned money to pay for more advertising so that you can get your book out there for everyone.
Pricing control is one of the reasons why most of the people prefer self-publishing. Meaning that you will be the one to decide how much your book is going to cost. One thing that you should know is that if you sell your book at an affordable price, it will forever break the market. Besides, you will also be in a position to make several friends and boost readership with lower price tags. You can as well decide to sell your books at a discount since you are the boss. Unlike traditional publishing where pricing is decided by many people making the book to be costly, and this will lead to the low return.
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.
