How to Sell Big on Apple iBooks with Julia Kent (Self Publishing Podcast #158)


One of the biggest strategies we push here on SPP is “go wide,” and for good reason. Select may make you more money in the short term, but nothing beats getting a foothold in your as many markets as possible, earning readers Amazon can’t deliver.
