Opportunities & Challenges
In many ways there are better opportunities available today for independent publishers and self-publishers than there were a just a few years ago.
Technical innovation has remove many barriers…
- Digital production of print-ready file is potentially simpler and less costly.
- Print on Demand (PoD) removes the need to invest in high-cost minimum quantity print runs.
- On-line selling is more readily available – so sales are not solely reliant on books being stocked in on bricks and mortar stores.
- Books editions can be sold in other media including ebook and audiobook.
There are some big challenges too…
- Much more technical expertise is required and in a growing range of specialisms. This can be very hard to provide in-house.
- Many of the on-line platforms (e.g Amazon) have a dominant advantage over smaller players.
- Many traditional channels (e.g. independent shops) have disappeared or become less inclined to support smaller publishers.
