There seems many new ways to market ebooks to the point that Im seriously baffled as the best places to start. Ive written a travel ebook, destination specific detailed, and know that most of the younger age tourists are using smart phones/ipads etc, and this would be an ideal document for devices like that.
So, a couple of questions ...
Ive made it into a 16:9 ratio pdf and it shows and read just fine on friends smart phones and ipads, but Im being told it needs to be formated for android use and that it should be listed in an APP store as thats where the younger folks purchase the things they need for their phones (because if they purchase from non app stores there is too many items not formatted correctly). Do I need to do this re formatting and is getting it onto an app store a good step?
In general, if you were me, what and where would be the most productive places to promote a travel ebook, value $10-$20? I have a regular website set up, and am considering any options to promote it, including media buys and seo with other than google engines.
Ive looked at google but they want up to $2-3 per click to advertise on the active keywords, which is way too high to be safe it seems to me for a small price item, only 3 clicks would/could wipe out the price.
Sorry for the newby style questions, its amazing how far everything has gone in just two or three years.
Thanks for any suggestions, BR
