How to Sell Book Files
The first step to sell a book online as an audio file is to record it into a digital format so it can be transferred throughout the internet. You can do this as an audio file where your books are read and recorded or as digital downloads. Or you can convert your book to an ebook file to sell online.
You’re going to want to do some self-advertisement on your social media accounts reaching out to the people you already know, so they can share your book with their friends and start a following chain of supporters of your work, even before it is ready to sell. Book marketing is very competitive, so you want to start early.
If you want to reach out to people further than the close knit people you have on your social media accounts, finding an eCommerce site to help sell your work can connect you to a whole new world of buyers.
