I just like getting ALL the info before putting forth any effort and money. Smashwords may work well for distribution of a book with all text that can look the same whether it's in a Word doc or a pdf but I'm a photographer and graphic designer and being told I have to put my book in a Word doc for submission is where I stopped reading.
He offers other good online marketing ideas but tends to turn most of it back to his company. I'm glad it was a free book because I would've felt ripped off if I had to buy a commercial
Update to last review...
I added 2 more stars because I did end up using Smashwords for my ebook distribution. It came down to how many formats their system supported and it's pretty much all of them. Once I read the whole guide for formatting a Word doc for their smasher I was able to include all the photos I wanted and was satisfied with the quality of how they looked.
If you're looking for promoting your book through SW, then this book is definitely for you! Definitely pick it up and give it a go!
I had a few problems using SW since I don't use Microsoft Word (and I don't remember what the other problems were, but it was not the amazing publisher I was hoping for--I do still hope to utilize it, but as I'm already published through B&N, Amazon and Lulu, I seemed to remember that being a problem--unfortunately, I came to SW too late to fully utilize it).
Don't expect this to be particularly helpful if you're NOT using the SW site, though. It's well-written and explains SW very well.
Mark Coker, Founder and CEO of Smashwords, has written a simple and user-friendly primer for ebook and print writers on how to market their books at his publishing company or elsewhere. the Book Marketing Guide is free and is available in multiple reading formats.
Mark suggests 31 DYIs. each do-it-yourself is clearly defined and supported with examples and helpful links. everything is feasible and can be outright implemented. some may give immediate results and others may require time for the changes to be noticeable.
what's interesting about the tips is that they not only apply to writers but to bloggers as well. writers need help on how to increase their sales in a competitive market. bloggers too need tools on how to boost their site traffic.
i am not an author but i am a blogger. this guide has opened a can of fresh ideas on how to attract more readers to my blog and where to find them. in fact, right after reading the guide, i immediately implemented a couple of his tips and they worked for me.
as Mark puts it, the guide is a living document and he invites everyone to contribute to its future updates by providing feedback and by sharing free marketing and distribution tools that would be beneficial to all.
i recommend this free marketing guide to amateur and professional writers and bloggers. in fact, i recommend this to anyone who does marketing and wants to see positive results - whether they be short or long-term ones.
