6 Reasons Why You Need To.
With the market constantly evolving, authors need help to keep up with the latest trends.
And I don't blame them!
I mean, with all the technological advancements around, who wouldn't be?
While some are sticking to the traditional way of producing copies of their books, authors nowadays are already going digital. Though there are a few digital formats out in the market, today, I want to focus on a specific format that's taking the book industry by storm - the audiobook.
An audiobook is a digital version of a book that the author or a professional narrator reads. Unlike an eBook that requires a screen to be read, this one is more convenient as readers can simply listen.
So let’s go over why you should turn your book into an audiobook.
#1 Wider Audience Reach
Let's face it.
Not everyone has the time to read…but it doesn't mean they don't read at all!
By getting an audiobook format of your book, you are reaching your readers and those who are always on the go. And on top of that, you are also catering to those with reading disabilities - something you can't do with print copies.
The beauty of audiobooks is that readers can access them anytime, anywhere!
Readers can easily whip out their phones or tablets, access platforms such as Audible or iTunes, and voila! They can start "reading" your book.
Whether readers are driving, exercising, or multitasking, Audiobooks can provide readers the flexibility and convenience print copies can't.
#3 A New Take on Your Book
Reading your book is one thing - but you narrating it is another!
Readers will feel more connected to you as they hear your voice narrating the story.
If you're not confident enough to narrate your book, fret not! You can always hire a professional narrator to breathe new life into your characters and intensify that emotional connection with your readers.
#4 Increased Earning Potential
Some authors just want to share their stories rather than focus on the money. But a little extra income ain't too bad, right?
Publishing your book in multiple formats means earning royalties from all these different formats compared to just releasing it in soft and hard copies. It will target more readers, especially those who value convenience over the hassle of bringing print copies.
Have you ever gone to a bookstore to find your next read but found that that book is out of stock?
With audiobooks, your readers will never have to experience that!
Digital copies are always available online, so if your book is already sold out in bookstores, your readers can get the audiobook version online. And if you decide to take a break, your audiobook will still be available online and ready for fans and new readers!
#6 Increased Marketing Potential
You can increase your audience reach by turning your book into an Audiobook. Make your book available on famous audiobook platforms like Audible and iTunes to gain more exposure and visibility.
The more recognized you are, the more readers will see you as a credible and reputable author.
In today's digital age, audiobooks are the future and a gateway for more opportunities as an author. So with all those benefits listed, you'd be crazy to pass up the opportunity to transform your book into an audiobook.
