Add these buttons to each page of your ebook -- either in the header or the footer -- so readers can easily share the book with their social networks no matter how far through it they've read. Just be sure you're sharing links to the ebook's landing page -- not thank-you page -- if it's gated content. HubSpot's ebooks, for example, include social sharing buttons for LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter on each page. For help in creating these social media buttons for your ebooks, check out this handy guide .
Think about how you got here -- you clicked on a call-to-action (CTA) in an email, on a social media post, or somewhere else. A CTA is a link or visual object that entices the visitor to click and arrive on a landing page that will get them further engaged with your company. Since your ebook readers have probably converted into leads in order to get their hands on your ebook to begin with (more on this in Step 2 below), use the CTAs within your ebook to reconvert your readers and propel them further down your marketing funnel.
First, a note about the role design should play in your content strategy. If ebook creation is (or you plan it to be) a big part of your content strategy, it's wise to first spend some time establishing a consistent brand style guide to which all your marketing content -- not just your ebooks, but also your presentations and other marketing collateral -- adheres. This will give your publications a more professional, branded look which translates to a sense of credibility. Of course, the content itself is a huge contributing factor to the credibility and value of a publication, but even if you have quality content down pat, that doesn't mean people still won't judge an ebook by its cover ;)

When Abby Hoffman said, “Steal this book,” back in the 1970s, there were no eBooks. He meant that the reader should literally steal his paperback. Flash-forward to 2016, and readers can steal eBooks with no trouble as long as publishers allow the DRM of an Amazon or an iBooks. Anybody right now can do a search for “Cross Kill and torrents” and get a download of the complete BookShot. This is why publishers are losing three billion dollars per year (and climbing).
Today's publishing focus trends to self-publishing authors and small businesses, including preparing books for publication via sites such as CreateSpace, Lightning Source, Lulu and others in both print and ebook formats. More and more writers are opting to publish their books themselves and with my extensive print publishing background, I'm uniquely qualified to help prepare your book from manuscript to finished book in paperback, hard cover or ebooks. I'm familiar with specific requirements of various common sites, as well as a great background in the print basics, unlike many "newly minted" graphic artists whose training has focused on websites and web publishing. I've very proud to say that I've recently been assisting with preparing Best Seller listed books for publication via print-on-demand sites. It's exciting to see this relatively new publishing method being used by the "big boys" as well as the more newly minted authors. And to add another feather to my cap, I just received word from one Client that his book about early colonial Cambodia was approved by the King. Client says I'm "the Royal Typesetter"... :) I'm happy to give you a time estimate for completing your project, but to me, every book is unique, and deserves a unique layout, so giving an exact time line and fixed-rate price is necessarily nearly impossible. Let's talk about the possibilities. Every book deserves a great cover, and I'm also available to help you with your cover design, from start to finish, concept to print. While I generally leave uploading of files to my clients, if you need help, I'm usually available, and I do guarantee my files to sucessfuly upload to the various sites, or I'll work on it until it does. This guarantee has even led me to step in and work with the help desks of more than one print site when their automated system thought it detected a problem, and my extensive print process knowledge assured me there wasn't one, so I contacted an actual person, and in all instances, once a live professional looked over the file, all was good to go. "Being there" for my clients is especially important to me, and I'm proud of my on-going client list here on oDesk. My clients seem to refuse to close out their accounts even when we don't have an active project. :-) During my nearly 40-years of graphic design within the printing and publishing field, I have witnessed and adapted to the many changes in technology as it relates to the industry. Yes, I'm older, but not extinct yet! So although I'm specializing in book publishing, if you have other print needs, such as stationery, magazine layout, flyers and on and on, I have done just about everything there is to do in the printing industry. Most of the changes in the print industry have been in the way that typography, photography and art meet and make their way to the printed page. We used to do this with light tables, punch-tape and exacto knives, now we use computers for the whole process. Offset presse...
My passion is storytelling, that almost-lost art of making sense with style, conviction and ease, no matter if that tale is a book of fiction or non-fiction, a training manual requiring precision and branding, or a monthly newsletter to members or prospects that means engagement or leads. I help authors of all kinds refine their stories so they can reach their full potential, free of errors and omissions, yet full of the writer’s own style and voice. I help design environments in books and other publications that attract attention to that message in a sleek and modern style, without clutter and never detracting from the integrity of the narrative. My experience in book publishing allows me to guide authors through the self-publishing maze, including Createspace, Lightning Souce/IngramSpark, Lulu and Blurb for print books; Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Google for eBooks; and intermediaries such as Smashwords, BookBaby and Draft2Digital. My clients also benefit from my knowledge of and feel for the general-interest, health, and business audiences, gained through three decades of work as a writer, editor, and designer interacting daily with readers of all types and callings. My editing/design services include: * Concept or developmental editing * Copy/line editing * Final proofreading * Book and periodical cover and interior layout and formatting * eBook conversion and submission * Publishing and distribution consultation Let me help you take your work, your creativity, your message to the next level – the eye level on the Top Shelf.

Like much of the software we test, eBook creators are in a bit of transition. Many still download to you desktop, but newer, more up-to-date programs tend to host their operating systems on the web. You often pay per project or for a subscription for online programs, while you purchase more traditional programs outright. We wouldn’t agree to a subscription costing more than $10 a month or a one-time payment more than $50, unless you’re publishing regularly.
