5 Essential Tips for Self-Publishing Authors

By Team Azuni

Self-publishing is becoming a popular and viable option for authors who want to take control of their own destiny. It’s also a great way to make money, since you can keep more of the profits that come in. That said, there are some things you should know before taking the plunge into self-publishing. Here are five essential tips that self-publishing authors should keep in mind.

Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

Before you embark on your self-publishing journey, it is important to understand what rights and responsibilities you have as an author. You need to make sure that you fully understand all the legalities associated with copyright law, taxes, contracts and other matters related to publishing a book. It’s also important to be aware of the rights and responsibilities of those who will be helping you publish your book (such as editors, illustrators and printers). Knowing these things upfront can save you a lot of headaches later on.

Plan Ahead

Planning ahead is essential if you want your book to be successful. You need to create an effective marketing plan that includes both online and offline strategies. Additionally, it is important to plan out the production process so that everything runs smoothly from start to finish. This includes budgeting for printing costs, hiring an editor or illustrator, setting up distribution channels and promoting the book once it has been published. Taking the time to plan ahead will set your book up for success from day one!

Do Market Research

It’s important to do market research before launching into self-publishing your book. You need to know who your target audience is, what type of books they read, how much they are willing to pay for them and where they are likely to purchase them from. Doing this kind of market research can help you craft a better product that meets the needs of readers in your target market—thus increasing its chances of success!

Choose Your Platform Wisely

When it comes time to actually publish your book, there are many different platforms available—from Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) to Smashwords and beyond. Each platform has its own advantages and disadvantages; therefore it is important that you do some research beforehand so that you choose the platform that best suits your needs. Consider factors such as cost, ease of use and customer service when making this decision.
