Digital Publishing Platforms – Things To Know

by Dolly K. Digital Marketing Executive

Any e-book, e-news portal, online guide or catalog, if you have come across, has actually given you the taste of digital platforms. Digital publishing has a resource requirement of its own. That is why, traditional players like Macmillan Publishers are reinventing themselves by using their resources to provide the writers all the publishing support imperative to a digital platform.

When you are adopting the digital publishing way, you have to pay for the hosting charges, payment gateways, site maintenance charges or web page maintenance charges, server charges and so on. Copyright is another arena that is to be given full attention while e-publishing the work. With the help of e-publishing companies the burden of managing these expenses is taken off from your head.

Why digital platforms for publishing the work?

Irrespective of the charges mentioned in the above section, digital publishing manages to pay back handsomely to the writers and publishers. Some of the ways digital platforms make writing a lucrative business are:

     a.Unprecedented Reach

Your e-book is available everywhere where the internet connectivity is. Irrespective of the geographical location, you can be visible to the readers accessing any of the digital platforms. The readers do not go to book stalls to buy books anymore. Instead, they sign up for the notifications from digital platforms and even get the book delivered to their email account or e-book store. Thus, the digital platforms are reaching people far and wide and giving a wide reader base to the writers in return.

     b.Low infrastructure cost as compared to print publishing

Picking digital publishing companies over traditional publishing ones saves lot of cost. The print media is expensive. Press expenses, labor cost, materials cost, transportation and storage cost add exponentially to the publishing cost when compared to digital publishing. So, moving to digital platforms reduces the cost drastically. Better reach at low cost means better earnings. Thus, you can be prepared for that dream vacation with all the money saved by use of digital platforms.

     c.Reaching readers environment-friendly way

Much has been said about the impact of paper demand on the environment. You are actually contributing to the cause of saving trees when you are ditching print media to publish your work. Paper availability is diminishing with the increase in population. Thus, a bounded script means one less tree for the Earth. Moreover, the energy that goes into maintenance of a printing press is another tenet worth contemplating upon.

     d.Delivering added convenience book per book

Nothing is more convenient for a reader than to open the app and start reading. Mobile phone is curling up the whole world of the users. This device with smart features has offered unprecedented ease of reading books online. The abundance of reading material and third party publishing platforms are the proof to the fact that people are looking up to e-publishing tools for reaching to the audience and delivering more convenience.

     e.Possibility of getting more work published per year

The fast pace of digital publishing solutions creates more bandwidth for writers to deliver more content in the same time period that got invested in exploring non-digital ways. Thus, e-publishing gives the writers an opportunity to stay employed in the content providing service.

With the support of digital publishing agents, writers relish more readers, better platform and ease of publishing that saves them energy to conceive more ideas.
