When you create your website – it becomes a book-selling platform but it is about you.

Selling books on your website could make you earn profits like:

  1. Instead of going through a chain of distribution and retail intermediaries, each of whom takes a share of the sale profit, you bypass the middlemen and net the whole profit on the book, minus a modest transactional charge.
  2. By running your own transactional website, you may eliminate payment delays as well as middlemen expenses. Royalties can take months, if not years, to come if you publish through a rights buyer, such as a traditional publisher.
  3. Direct selling provides the greatest level of independence and flexibility.

The amazing thing about selling direct is that you are only limited by your own imagination, the quality of your offers, and your ability to attract customers in terms of how you publish, advertise, promote on social media and sell your books.
