Announcing Fiverr’s New Book & eBook Store

Announcing Fiverr’s New Book & eBook Store

Despite competition from flashy tech gadgets and the popularity of online video, book and eBook sales continue to rise at unprecedented rates.  Book publishing is currently a $119 billion global industry. eBook sales make up 18% of that number, and they’re expected to grow 3.6% in 2020.  Much of the growth will be driven by self-published titles.

In 2018, the most recent year for which data is available, 1.68 million self-published books were released in the U.S. alone.  That was a 40% bump from the previous year.

Self-publishing has become a viable path to literary success thanks to unlikely big hits like Andy Weir’s The Martian and E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.  Both books were originally self-published and went on to break records.  In fact, Fifty Shades was recently crowned the best-selling book of the decade.

There are many authors out there who hope to self-publish and find a similar level of success, but they’re not sure where to start.  Fiverr’s new Book & eBook Store features handpicked sellers who can help them create and publish a professional book. And, it’s another great opportunity for Fiverr Affiliates to promote in-demand services and earn more commission.

1. Develop Your Book

Every book starts with a story, and there are several different ways to tell it.  There’s a market for Fiction, Nonfiction, and Short Stories, but each genre requires unique elements and storytelling techniques.  Fiverr’s skilled writers can help authors and companies identify the best approach for their story, flesh out their ideas, and incorporate everything into an engaging manuscript.

2. Edit & Polish Your Content

Once the manuscript’s ready to go, it needs to be refined so that it’s presented professionally.  It should be a smooth journey for the reader, and Fiverr’s professionals can help produce a manuscript that is top-quality.  Proofreaders will scan the book with an eagle eye and ensure it’s error-free. Content editors will identify plot holes and fill in missing details.  Beta readers will take the book for a test run and give their honest feedback.

3. Design Your Book

Readers will certainly judge a book by its cover, so it’s important that every author or company has a well-designed final product. Fiverr’s design experts can help with every aspect of this process.  Cover Designers can create a dynamic cover that communicates the theme and feel of the book. Typesetters will work to ensure the text is clean, consistent, and easy to read. And, Illustrators can bring graphic novels to life.

4. Format Your Book

It’s crucial that every book is available in the most popular formats.  For eBooks, select Fiverr sellers can prep the manuscript for marketplaces like the Amazon Kindle Store, Apple iBooks, and Google Play Books.  For audiobooks, Fiverr also has Voiceover professionals who can bring emotional depth to any story and Audiobook Editors who can create crisp sound for a seamless listening experience.
