You Could Earn More $$ Selling Rights Than Selling Books

by Best Seller 5 replies
One of the greatest reasons to utilize the supported self-publishing route ahead of traditional (trade) publishing to produce your book is retained copyright ownership of your intellectual property. When you retain that ownership, you also maintain control over all aspects of your book sales and marketing ... including the sale of subsidiary rights.

Here is a great blog post that provides a bit more detail: The Importance of Foreign Rights. This is an incremental revenue stream that many Internet marketers/authors may not have considered before now. And it's an important one because there are literally thousands (possible even millions) of additional dollars to be made from a single book if marketed properly to the worldwide publishing market.

Where can authors buy and sell their rights? It's probably best to find a foreign rights agent to help you with the first one or two projects because they not only have relationships with all the "movers and shakers" in publishing around the world, but they know how to word the contracts for best results. You can find agents, publishers, and basically everything you're looking for through PubMatch.

Check it out. It's yet another potential revenue stream for your online business.

    I never really thought about this approach hen it comes to book selling...I'm actually still novice to the whole intellectual property system as well. Definitely will need to do some more focused reading, but this was an awesome post and I believe the links you provided are great with the knowledge I need to obtain. Thank you!

    Hi Best Seller,

    While I acknowledged that you can earn more selling rights than books, I also feel it is just as important to write your own content or into your own words if possible.

    People don't just look for original unique content.

    They want helpful and useful content. That can help them in different aspects of life.

    Whether it will be internet marketing, business, health, interests and relationships with the people that mattered to them.

      Every single post I make on this forum is original and unique content that was written by me the day I posted it. If I include excerpts from my books or cite other sources, I indicate that clearly. Otherwise, it's all my own content in my own words.

      So, I'm unsure where your post is coming from. ???
