Whether you are a small startup or global corporation you have to find unique ways to get noticed. For the first time, Blurb.com allows individuals to self publish print and ebooks to reach target markets affordably and with a memorable twist.

Blurb’s free platform allows designers, corporations, affiliates, photographers, artists and hobbyists to showcase their work in beautiful book format. Imagine the impact of a table top book featuring your corporate story. Or a handbook showcasing your case studies – or perhaps the programs you promote.

Imagine you are an affiliate with an exclusive tracking identifier that distributes books to target readers to convert sales. Or you have an affiliate program what requires top bloggers to write about you to get noticed. How impactful would you be if they received a beautiful printed book or ebook featuring your company?

Blurb books are totally customizable, easy to create and absolutely affordable. Here are some examples of book ideas – made by you.

Beautiful.

If you’re a merchant and you want to stand out – take a few minutes to check out their platform and the possible outcomes you could have. If you are a professional and want to build your credibility through being a published author, now you can more affordably than ever.

How is the is different from Amazon? Blurb has a storefront that turns over 1.5 million original titles per year – and they don’t take a rev share. You do not have to create a barcode. You can mark it up, sell it through their storefront and keep 100% of the profit.

Books start as low as $5. Companies order 50 – 100K books at a time if they like, or one at a time if that works for them. Printing takes just 5-7business days.

If you are going to give this a try, here are some questions to help you get started:

  • What is your goal?
  • What is the theme?
  • Are the images related?
  • Do you have enough images / content for a book?
  • How many images do you need?
  • How will you make it memorable?

If you’re an affiliate and would like to make your own book, Blurb invites you to create your own book for free. Blog about it. Tweet about it. Facebook it. Re-sell it. Show the world what you did so they can do one too. There are many ways to capture your life’s ideas and stories while earning money for your family or driving more sales for your business.

If you’re not already a Blurb affiliate, you can join their ShareASale program here. We look forward to seeing your work.
