OK, you've finally written your eBook! Great, now what do you do with it? As an author who focuses on the web, instead of print, you have many options. Many independent writers today are using Amazon and Lulu to publish print on books (PDF versions) or do their own DIY publishing. So, which approach should you take? It doesn't matter, they both are good choices.
If you are just getting started, it's best that you list your eBook for sale on both Lulu.com and the Amazon Kindle Store. The primary reason for this is that by placing your eBooks on multiple sites you can target a wider audience and maximize your earnings. But the questions still beg, which one should I use? Is it better to market my books more on Amazon than with Lulu? Which site can I make more money? Don't stop reading; the answer is just a few paragraphs away.
It used to be only eBay who was after it, but social networking superstar Facebook recently rolled out Marketplace which allows users to buy and sell among themselves within the FB community.
The latest one to join the race is Walmart.
That good ol' bricks-and-mortar store everybody loves for its very affordable goods has just announced its eCommerce plans for Q4 2016.
Walmart may not be a newbie to eCommerce, having joined the industry in 2001, but it remains far behind big marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and even Alibaba.
However, Walmart is confident that with a little touch of technology and additional warehouses it can surpass what Amazon has achieved.
