Give your reader a sample that says something

Before the advent of ebooks, if you were interested in buying a book, you’d pick it up off the shelf in the bookstore, look at the cover, turn it over to read the blurb, and then maybe read a few pages inside. Then you’d make the decision whether to buy it or not.

Now that ebooks are so popular, the way people choose which books to buy has changed a lot. Most people will browse Amazon or iBooks for their purchase. Because people can’t pick up a copy and flick through it, these sites usually have a sample copy available to download for free so that the purchaser can read some of the book to see what it’s like, much like browsing through the first few pages when you’re in a bookstore.

However, most publishers don’t worry about which pages they offer in this sample ebook. Recently, when I was checking out a book to see if it was worth buying, all I got in the sample was the title page and the dedication! This didn’t encourage me to buy it.

Giving them everything they need

Here at Australian Ebook Publisher, we know it’s important to make sure that people interested in your book get a sample that’s going to help them make an informed decision on whether or not your book is right for them. We don’t want them to choose another book just because they couldn’t find out what they needed to knowabout yours. We take care in which pages go into the sample ebook to ensure that the reader will experience your book and be encouraged to go ahead and make that purchase!
