SMASHWORDS IS THE LEADING ALTERNATE TO AMAZON FOR eBOOK PUBLICATION. While estimates vary, it is evident that Amazon garners anywhere from 50% to 70% of all current global eBook sales. That being said, there remains another important piece of the marketing pie, the other 30% to 50% that Amazon is not servicing.
Enter SmashWords, the leading resource for independently published eBooks. The Smashwords Meatgrinder process prepares and distributes eBooks in various formats to many of those neglected markets, including: iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, The Smashwords Store and libraries everywhere, to name a few.
LEAVING 50% OF THE SALES MARKET UNTAPPED, SIMPLY BECA– USE AMAZON DOESN’T DELIVER THERE, IS FAULTY LOGIC. I’m just sayin’…
