Unlock self-publishing secrets
Thanks to current technology, there has never been a better time to publish your own book. In this course, Successful Self-publishing: Print and Ebooks, we will demystify the current self-publishing landscape – so that you can determine and implement the best course of action for your book.
Whether you want to publish a book to generate fresh leads for your business, build your authority in your niche, or as an additional revenue stream – the addition of a published book to your body of work will help you achieve this.
These days, you can self-publish a printed book, create an ebook available on Amazon (and other platforms) – or you can do both. We give you the framework to determine the best strategy for you.
Included in this course:
- The best methods of publishing your book to suit your specific goals (it’s not a case of one size fits all!).

- How to select the best size and format for your printed book.
- How to get your book printed – what are your options?

- Elements of excellent book cover design that will help sell your book.
- What is required inside your book. Interior layout: its contents, compliance and design.
- How to upload your print and eBook to the biggest online global book retailer to make your book available to an international audience within 48 hours.
