How Important Getting an Editor for Your Book is
While we haven’t posted an article in a while, yes, we are still alive and functioning. So why haven’t we been posting blogs? The simple fact is that we continue to collect data to provide you with the most accurate information available. Doing this requires us to test out ebook platforms and marketing methods not once, or twice, but several times, until we can ensure that the data we report is beyond accurate! However, there is some news to share and a matter that needs addressing…

This Platform is Temporary While We Develop Our New Platform
Our goal is to create strategies that will make your e-book or audiobook successful.
Are you having trouble editing your book? Honestly, we have received a lot of manuscripts (Many published and listed on www.mynarrationstation.com— our parent website), and 99% of them are not edited properly. Many of our clients have told us that their book went through editing, but we find lots of errors! One critical aspect when marketing your book is ensuring that it accurately edited. Nobody wants to stumble through a manuscript or audiobook that is not coherent!
We provide a book artist. He is extremely well accomplished and has been involved in the design of many covers. However, there is much more to a cover than just a pretty picture. Did you know that covers that are lighter in color are clicked on more? Or did you know that e-books and audiobooks dealing with personal issues are more successful when the cover has a picture of a person on it? Designing a cover is a significant process, and we ensure that it goes smoothly.
What about social media? A lot of people only use social media to market their ebook or audiobook. Yes, this is a great token, but we are involved in much more than that. We collect data on the best ebook websites to advertise, and these websites are custom picked to ensure success! However, we still have a social media marketing team and we are ramping up our efforts to expand these platforms.
Designing of a Website
Our staff also includes a person who is not only in marketing but specializes in the designing of websites. A Website can be an essential platform to gain momentum.
The narration of ebooks is one of our biggest focuses. Audiobooks have become a billion dollar industry and if they are adequately promoted; the potential for sells is enormous. We have several narrators and even an audio specialist that goes through the audiobooks and ensure high quality.
Amazon and ACX
There is something important that I would like you to note. Right now we primarily focus on Amazon and ACX. However, I am up to date on the many platforms that are evolving and discussing the potential for expansion is always on the table. We feel that the potential for most beginning authors is greatest on these two platforms.
Our Offer is Unbeatable
No other website gives you all of these features for an outstanding price. We hold ourselves to a higher standard. This is not a self-publishing website. We do not take your book and throw it out without even reading your material. No. We take our time and assess all manuscripts before giving you a quote. Most websites offering any of our services only want a credit card number. We take the time to ensure your ebook or audiobook is something we can work with and then develop a plan of action.
Are you marketing your book through Facebook and Instagram? You should read this article.
I have never been a fan of marketing books via Facebook or Instagram. Instagram might be cheap, gain a lot of attention, but that doesn’t always equal revenue. Facebook offers a higher chance of conversion, but I have never thought either would be very beneficial. However, like everything that is posted on this website, we present our own results and don’t merely speculate.
