The results are in: BookBaby unveils insights from the largest self-publishing survey ever conducted

PENNSAUKEN, N.J., July 11, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ BookBaby, the nation's leading independent self-publisher, announced the results of its 2017 Self-Publishing Survey. The survey collected insights of about 8,000 aspiring writers and published authors revealing their book promotion strategies and which tactics yielded the greatest results.

"There's a strong contrast between our top-earning authorsthose who made over $5,000 in the past 12 monthsand those who earned under $100 in that same time span," said BookBaby President Steven Spatz. "Are successful authors making printed books or eBooks? How much do they charge per book? These survey results spotlight their behaviors and activity levels, bringing clarity to what authors should do and when to start doing it."

This whitepaper shares data around a number of topics, including:

  • The wide range tactics used by authors across all popular genres.
  • The professional services used by the most successful authors.
  • Who successful authors reach out to for book reviews.
  • How a body of work leads to stronger sales and an increased fan base.
  • Where the most successful authors focused their time and money.

"When asked if book marketing was easier than anticipated, an overwhelming 73% of the most successful authors disagreed," said Spatz. "This signifies that the path to self-publishing success is no stroll in the park, making this whitepaper all the more essential to any author's book marketing and promotional efforts."
