IBPA Publishing University Online presents Tapping the Ebook Goldmine: Turbo-charging the Profitability of Your Non-Fiction Title! – with Peter Bowerman

In 2010, this webinar’s presenter released an updated edition of one of his award-winning books. Months away from being on Amazon or in bookstores, the book was released only to his ezine subscriber list. At that point, he was in the red to the tune of $12,500 for the design and printing of 6,000 copies of the book.

Within 45 days of the release date, he was in the black. And virtually every penny he’s made since then has been pure profit.

At the heart of this uncommon outcome is a four-pronged ebook strategy (and no, we’re not talking about Kindle here) that’s a natural for any non-fiction how-to book.

In this lively, detailed session, you’ll learn:

  • How to harness the power of ebooks in creative ways to dramatically multiply the profitability of your hard-copy book…
  • The one question non-fiction authors need to ask themselves that can put thousands of extra dollars in their pockets…
  • How to create irresistible companion products to your main book ­ products that can easily double or triple your profit margins!
  • How to capture additional profit from buyers of your main book, even if they buy it from Amazon or a bookstore….
  • And much more…
