In early 2020, I Self-Published my first book onto IngramSpark. Little did I know the incredible impact the platform would provide to host, sell and distribute my books across more than 50 countries. I could see the potential but wasn’t prepared for the reach it would provide my books. Fast Forward 2 years, I have sold over 14,000 books with revenue exceeding $100,000. The benefit of using IngramSpark is that they take care of all the printing, distribution and postage, and I receive a great passive income stream each month.
Self-Publishing isn’t reserved for a select group of authors. I started my career as a school teacher but had always dreamed of becoming an author and starting and running my own business. It took me several years to figure out precisely what it was, but now I couldn’t be happier working online doing something I am passionate about. The positive impact you can have by creating children’s books, novels, fiction and non-fiction books or even business and education resources is a great way to be inspired each day you publish.
So why is IngramSpark such a great business model?
Firstly, IngramSpark provides the platform that will help you connect with over 40,000 distribution channels globally, including online book retailers (we’re talking Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, Target, Bookdepository etc.), libraries, schools and traditional brick and mortar stores.
IngramSpark does all the heavy lifting, including Printing and Distribution. As the author and creator, you receive a royalty payment for your book creation, or, as I like to call it, your digital asset. As a result, you no longer have books pre-printed and sitting in storage, hoping they will eventually sell. With IngramSpark Print on Demand (POD), your book is only printed and distributed when a customer orders via one of the distribution channels.
Is IngramSpark right for me?
Suppose you would like the opportunity to write and publish a book, become recognised as an author and leader in your industry or even create your own business using one of the world’s largest distributors. Perhaps you would prefer to have complete control over the design and creation without the hassles of taking email and phone orders, managing customer enquiries, and like the idea of a long-term passive income? In that case, IngramSpark is perfect for you!
Note: Please ensure that you check with IngramSpark before purchasing the course, as not all residents across every country are eligible to use the platform.
