95. Dave Chesson, the Kindlepreneur, discusses the evolution of self-publishing
Dave Chesson created Kindlepreneur to help authors get started with Amazon. In our interview, he discusses the evolution of self-publishing and the relevance of self-published authors comparing them to free-agents in sports. Self-publishing makes it easier for a publishing house to know who to take on. Self-publishing used to be the junior varsity team but this has evolved. The con to self-publishing includes such things as no backing of a publishing house; not have access to specific editors, no professional formatting, to name just a few of the points. With self-publishing, you need to learn to do these things yourself and have to learn marketing. Extremely important whether with a publisher or not, is to learn how to market and the importance of building an email list that will enable you to grow on other social platforms.
