Breaking free from the Amazon monopoly: How publishers are finding success with e-books, outside the ecosystem
Maximizing profits and retaining control: The benefits of selling e-books directly to readers with Appworks
As a leading mobile app development provider, we at Appworks understand the importance of e-books for publishers. That's why we've developed an e-book module as part of our mobile app platform, providing publishers with a convenient and effective way to sell e-books directly to readers.
Our platform offers a full paywall, transaction, and invoicing system, making it easy for publishers to sell e-books directly to readers. And with the ability for readers to access their purchased e-books in our iOS and Android apps or on the web with the same credentials, they can enjoy their e-books anytime, anywhere.
The e-book market is dominated by Amazon, with many publishers relying on the retail giant to sell their e-books. However, more and more publishers are breaking free from the Amazon monopoly and finding success outside the ecosystem. By using independent e-book platforms and selling e-books directly to readers, publishers can maximize profits and retain more control over the sales process. One of our clients, Geopoetika, is a Serbian independent publisher that successfully uses this approach to sell e-books directly to readers through both the web and mobile apps. This has allowed Geopoetika to reach a wider audience and increase profits.
In addition to increasing profits and retaining control, selling e-books directly to readers can also allow publishers to sell titles out of print. These titles may still have a dedicated audience, and by selling e-books directly to readers, publishers can continue to monetize these titles and reach new readers. Selling e-books directly to readers can also provide an opportunity for publishers to reach new markets outside of their current geography. By selling e-books directly to readers, publishers can bypass traditional distribution channels and reach new audiences more directly and cost-effectively.
If you're a publisher looking to sell e-books outside of the Amazon ecosystem, we at Appworks can help. Contact us today to learn more about how our e-book module can help your business succeed.
