Reinventing the wheel is hard, especially when it comes to the holidays—when it seems like everything has already been done, or at the very least tried, in respect to self-promotion and marketing. As a self-publishing author, it’s often even harder than for most; self-promotion can often feel like reinventing a wheel that has already turned many times.
Luckily, there’s good news! And it comes in the form of Outskirts Press’s wonderful array of E-Book Publishing Services, including separate options to transform your book into digital formats purchasable through the Apple, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon online stores—as well as the spectacular Elite e-Book Bundle, which combines all three of the aforementioned options into one steeply discounted service. Whether you’ve already published your book through Outskirts Press, have published elsewhere, or are looking to publish soon and hope to expand and amplify your reach this holiday season … we’ve got you covered.
Consider all of the ways in which publishing a new digital edition (or several new digital editions) can benefit you during this hectic holiday season. Many people will be giving away ebook readers as holiday gifts, so making sure your book is available in at least one e-bookstore for potential readers who will be browsing for books to read after they receive their gift is a good idea. While nothing quite replaces the appeal of a physical book in hand, digital editions make your book more accessible to a greater number of potential readers, and also provide more platforms on which to offer special holiday-themed discounts, giveaways, and other promotions! They also do some serious work when it comes to boosting your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy, as each additional format is rich soil just waiting to be mined and indexed by Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and others. So not only is your book more accessible, it’s also more findable. And that’s no small benefit!
Also, consider this: In recent years, it has become a popular habit to give gift cards to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other digital retailers at Christmas. These gift cards add an extra punch of necessity to the already fierce pressure to purchase books around Christmas, and that’s something you can turn to your benefit, simply by publishing a digital edition of your book in addition to a paperback or hardcover edition! After all, e-books are, generally speaking, much more affordable. (And don’t worry, we offer other options if you want to promote those physical editions of your book this holiday season, too!)
