Indie authors have enormous opportunity to create not only a legacy that lasts beyond their lifetime but also an income stream that does as well. What’s the biggest difference between an eBook that sells copy after copy and one that doesn’t ever move? We’ve identified three factors that can make or break your eBook:
- Clean writing. You have a story to tell, but if you’re not the strongest writer or don’t have the grammar and language skills to make the story compelling, clean, and easy to read, your success will depend on your ability to partner with a good editor and proofreader. It impacts everything from sales to reviews to word-of-mouth marketing – and it’s worth the investment.
- An attractively designed cover. Take a look at the eBook versions of Ian Fleming’s 007 books. Not only is each individual cover wonderfully designed to represent the brand and style, but all of the eBook covers complement each other as well.
- Aggressive and consistent marketing. Indie authors have to work even harder to market their eBooks, but those who do, reap the rewards of better sales and loyal readers.
