The Trust of the Editing World
I have been editing multiple manuscripts since this business began. Our sister website (mynarrationstation.com) is already in place, as we get our main website calibrated (marketingindieauthors.com). Lorri Heneveld (my primary audiobook narrator) and I have recently discovered something frightening!
Editing of manuscripts is pitiful! I am not talking about just little grammatical errors like even I occasionally make; we are finding that almost all of the manuscripts we have worked on have had massive amounts of grammatical errors. This is understandable because these books are freshly-written, and it’s the first time they’ve been reviewed by an editor— right?— wrong!

Amazon is the Best?
Yes, most of the blogs focus on Amazon, but almost all of the information has a general relation to other platforms. However, one reason I am hesitant to release data regarding other ebook and audiobook services is that because many of them are just beginning to evolve and the direction they are heading is not a certainty.

Something Most People Never Consider
There is a platform that is rarely discussed in the marketing of ebooks and audiobooks. It is a growing platform that should be used much more as a platform for selling your material. It averages 25.25 billion views a month and is the second largest search engine. Last month visits were up 12%. Few people know how to leverage views and it is not for every book, but it can be highly useful for many. The bounce rate is at 27.1%, mobile and desktop usage is almost split, but most importantly— 16.34% of views come from America. Although this A LOT of people, there Is something to consider regarding your ebook or audiobook… Could I speak to other audiences interested in my subject?
Now you are probably wondering what website I am speaking about? You may have an idea… this full report is being released to email subscribers only…
What You Should Know About Illegal Amazon Marketing
I received a disturbing email from an author that claimed my analysis of the Kboards article was inaccurate because Amazon does not allow advertisement on third-party platforms. I am here to tell you she is 100% wrong and kboards is 100% acceptable to use for advertising. I will give you a link at the bottom to add assurance.
Amazon recently released information that particular third-party websites were considered illegal by their terms. Why is this? Well, a few websites required that you write a set amount of reviews before enabling the reviewer access to all of the tools on the website. Amazon is not against ads on other websites, nor are they against the promotion of your book. But they do have a problem that they insist be addressed. They fear that customers will be swayed to write a positive review based solely on website’s forcefully nature to do so or websites inept nature of encouraging and guaranteeing some form of positive reviews. The evidence overwhelmingly suggests that these type of platforms give much higher ratings to books than the average consumer would give.

READERS Average Age and Male or Female Targeting in Relation to Ebooks
We have an extremely large database of information that looks into websites, their potential, statistics, and we even go so far as to see what others have written. Yes, we look at customer reviews on their website, but we also look into information on other web platforms dictating other advertiser’s experience. Before we dive into age and the trends they have, I would like to make something clear:
Although you may pay 20 dollars for advertising and only make 10 dollars back, there is a more important detail to consider: If you are receiving reviews then it is worth it! Reviews on Amazon and other platforms increase the rank and offer you a higher potential for further sells. A lot of people make their book free with hopes that they will get reviews. One tactic I use with my clients is put what is called a “Call to Action.” This “Call to Action” says, “Please Review the book.” As simple as that seems, it can often get results.

- They charge e-books based on megabytes. This means that it is not worthwhile to publish books on Kindle that contain a lot of pictures or graphs.

BOOK COVERS AND MARKETING STRATEGY COULD BE GREATLY EFFECT BY THE FOLLOWING:
There was an article that got my attention. I was observing a conclusion that experts made on the pictures people favored. These reports are monumentally crucial in the marketing businesses because we design photos for advertisement, videos, and cover art for ebooks, and audiobooks. Images can play a huge role in marketing, and those that are attracted to the image are equally valuable components. This paper is going to get technical, and I hope you read the full paper; to an odd conclusion. It is a conclusion that should be valued and assessed.

We have the best of both worlds! What do I mean? Well, when it comes to ebook and audiobook publishing, we are more than prepared.
This began by Lorri H. when she started a small ebook narrating operation. I- [Max] – came to the platform where I invested time and energy into developing a marketing scheme. Although there are many ebooks and audiobooks platforms for creation… I realized that marketing in this area was scarce. I had previous marketing experience, and I have worked in literature. I knew the potential for growth was huge!
This marketing scheme really took off! Our profit percentage is over 1000% since the beginning days of the website. In fact, we have increased profits in every area. We have hired other narrators and staff because it can be challenging to meet the demand.
This sister website focuses on marketing, but we offer almost everything a writer could want… Editing, book covers, narration, marketing and we enjoy what we do. Although our two websites might seem at a distance- we are still very connected.
I have recently added a new team member who is going to run the marketing part of the business with me. Hunzala Rajput is excellent at social media and provides an exciting look into the process. I focus on marketing books based on platforms that most marketers overlook. With the two websites working together, we will continue to grow.
AN UNDERVALUED PLATFORM
Narrators, yes, I understand your frustration. I recently spoke with the owner of the parent site we are connected to. Her main job is to develop audiobooks. Our two narrators both use recording studios. Also, they go to great lengths to edit the material. Most people think it as simple as clicking a few buttons and reading the manuscript… guess what… it is nowhere near that easy. A lot of people are also under the impression that marketing requires a couple clicks and they are mystified by the fees we display. Well, I would like to assure you that the processes involved are both problematic. Today we are going to be talking about Narration:
