Secret #7: How to create a mountain of sales using
multiple Royalty Publishers!


Are you making this mistake in your eBook business?

You submit your sales page to search engines. Then you
submit your eBook to a few eBook directories. Then you
wait for the sales to come in.

Well, it’s time for you to begin using the 7 Secrets in
this article series to help explode your eBook traffic.
By systematically using each of the 7 secrets you will
build a large foundation that will bring in a lot more
sales for you. However, you must keep using the 7 secrets
to keep the momentum building.

Ok, now for today’s topic: How to create a mountain of
sales using multiple Royalty Publishers.

First let’s establish the difference between today’s
secret of royalty publishers and yesterdays secret (#6)
of Booksellers.

In this fast changing climate it is really hard sometimes
to tell the difference. The difference we are working
with in this article is this: Royalty Publishers will
publish your eBook and charge a royalty or percentage
of your sales as their means of making money.

Because there are no costs for paper and ink, binding,
shipping, returned copies, or other fees, eBooks are
typically sold at 25% to 50% below soft cover prices.
Yet, due to large royalties, most authors receive more
income from the sale of their eBooks than from their
traditionally printed counterparts

So you might be asking yourself, why would you use royalty
publishers if you already are using the Booksellers.
There are two reasons that come to mind.

First, you want your eBook to sell as many copies as you
can. Second, you want your eBook to gain popularity on
the Internet.

If in the future you would like to have your eBook put
into print the sales you receive using these 7 secrets
will help you a lot to prove your case that the eBook
sells well.

A royalty publisher will actually do most of the work
for you. They take care of the downloading from their
site, the order processing and any other details. They
charge you a small % of your sales to do all this work.
Many will give you a website designed to sell your eBook
that you can use to market it. Otherwise they provide you
with sales help.

Many royalty ePublishers allow you to sell your ebook
on multiple ePublishing sites. This gives you the advantage
of selling a lot more copies of your ebook. However,
a word of caution, you MUST read the terms and conditions
of each of the royalty publisher before selling to more
than one. You must make sure that you are dealing with
a “non-exclusive” royalty publisher.

So, as you are trying these 7 secrets don’t forget the
royalty publishers. They are worth the time invested into
them in sales and name recognition.

Now here’s the really good part – Royalties from electronic
formats are a massive leap forward for writers, from the very
first copy sold!

As an example, your electronic download royalties could be:
40%, 50% or even as high as 80% Once again, compare those
figures to the normal print royalties: 7% on 50,000 copies
for trade paperback, 8% on the first 150,000 copies for
mass market paperback, or 8% to 15% on 15,000 copies for

The main thing to look out for is hidden up front fees with
royalty publishers. There are many that charge them in addition
to the royalty percentage.

Below I will list 2 royalty publishers to get you started. Both
of these charge only the royalty percentage and NOT any other
