Myth Buster: You Can’t Afford NOT to Record an Audiobook

Myth Buster: You Can’t Afford NOT to Record an Audiobook

Do you want to sell more books? Do you want to book more speaking engagements? Do you want to stand out from the crowd? Then, if you have written a book, you MUST record an audiobook – and, it’s affordable!

No Printing Costs

When you record your audiobook, you have a digital product you can easily send anywhere in the world. Authors who record their books report that it’s so easy to grab attention because the sharability is incredible. One click, and your sample is flying across the internet to a prospect.

Audiobook Listenership Increases by 20% Each Year

Why? People commute. People workout. People walk dogs. People listen to podcasts for work and pleasure. Listening is the new reading. You may not like the idea, but if you don’t start recording, you will soon learn the hard way that books are more portable than ever before in audio form.

You Can Afford the Price of Recording Your Book

A professional like myself is trained to coach the best read out of you. A small studio with a quiet/dead room, a microphone, and your book, is all you need. Or, you can record it yourself by learning some simple tricks. Even if you record at a studio, the cost is far, far less than paying for an editor of a manuscript and getting 500 print copies. Much less! If you do it yourself, it is almost free.

Don’t be Afraid, Be Excited!

This is you big chance to do a new project that doesn’t require all new material. Repurposing your book to an audio format is just like writing a new book, but better. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. You spent a ton of time penning your brilliant ideas, now let’s get those ideas blasting out of someone’s speakers.

Where Do I Start?

You can do a lot of reading and figure it all out on your own. You can talk to friends and watch YouTube videos. There are an infinite number of resources on the web. Or, better yet, contact me, and I will tell you everything I know. I can record you in the Midwest, where I live, or I can travel to you. The beauty of recording audiobooks is a big studio is unnecessary. Or, we can start slow. I’m okay just sharing ideas and helping you figure out. Recording a book is a team effort on every level.
