As you may know, in 2012 and beyond, I’m transitioning my info products to the ereader market. I’m also developing ebooks specifically for the ereader platform.
You can join me on my adventures by subscribing to my new free program, Info Products Publisher.
Here’s why the transition, in a single word: MOBILE.
Take a look at these numbers. For Amazon & Kindle, brick & mortar stores key to success — Tech News and Analysis reports:
“UBS Research estimates that during the holiday quarter Amazon will sell 8.5 million Kindles, including 5 million Kindle Fires. For 2012, they expect Amazon to sell 22 million Kindle devices.”
That’s just Amazon, without counting Apple, and the millions of smartphones which run Kindle apps.
As I said when announcing my new Kindle program:
Seeing major publishers focusing on Kindle/ ereader publication alongside print publication — and the experiments these huge publishing houses are running in pricing and publication times — convinced me it’s the future… NOT A FAD.
So, considering that in 2012 and beyond, MOBILE is the way forward, are you ready?
In 2011, tablet computers started eating into PC sales. Tablet computers like the iPad make it easy to not only consume content, but also to make impulse purchases.
The way forward into a mobile future
I’ve no idea what the way forward is for YOU. That depends on whether you’re a beginning writer, or are a pro.
All that’s essential at this stage is that you’re aware of the momentum into a mobile future. And that you ensure that you’re ready.
