Infographics are a fantastic way to provide a lot of useful information in an attractive, attention-keeping form.
So far, there were not many visual summaries about the phenomenon of self-publishing, but it started to change recently. In this post I’m sharing four infographics published in the recent weeks.
I will be updating this post in the future, if any new chart comes out. Infographics are a great promotional tool, and we at Ebook Friendly spend a lot of time to support self-publishing.
First infographic, Self-publishing by the numbers, created by Business Web Page Creation is a comprehensive guide to digital publishing, where self-publishing plays a major role. We’ve seen many comparisons between print and electronic books already, but in this infographic it’s done from a point of view of a writer.
A magnification of 10 remarkable years is an infographic prepared by Lulu.com, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this great self-publishing platform. Enough to say that during that period stunning 36 million dollars were earned by Lulu authors. Now, combine this info with the cost estimate from a first infographic (Print and distribution costs section) and you’ll get a pretty clear view about what self-publishing is about.
Blurb, another top destination for authors who decided to self-publish, shares 7 top stats about Blurb’s role in self-publishing. The infographic shows figures for 2011. Blurb authors earned 1 million dollars, almost 100,000 books were published, and 1.8 million books were downloaded by users from 69 countries.
The last chart is different. It was prepared by Ryan Gielen and is called How I spent the last year preparing to self-publish my novel. It’s an extremely funny description of several tasks the self-publisher has to accomplish and things he does instead. In fact, in times of social media, every author has to deal with several topics, which have nothing to do with writing.
