Free is good, you don’t have to pay for it. But what about ebook conversion? If you have a paperback or scanned format of your book that you want to convert as an ebook, you can search online for websites that offer ebook conversion services for free. If you don’t mind being fussy, you can do it. It makes sense to keep every penny in your pocket (if you can). But there are downsides if you’re clumsy and inexperienced in the know-hows and what-nots of ebook conversion. It can be a tricky process and you wouldn’t want to risk creating a boring and uninteresting looking ebook. You’ll want to create an attention-grabbing ebook that every book lover will want to happily add to their carts. That’s why it’s a smart decision to outsource your ebook conversion. A paid conversion is the best way to go if you want to sell a top-notch ebook for the vast digital platform market. Here’s why:
Ebook conversion is a professional’s trade. Don’t try it at home. There’s too many writers/publishers who simply gave up after exhausting so much time and effort with a DIY conversion. They finally decide to contact a digital publishing outsourcing company. Save yourself from unnecessary stress and expenses by hiring a professional ebook conversion service to handle the conversion. If you DIY, you’re likely going to do your conversion in one format. It’s limited and you’ll actually still miss out selling your ebook to a large number of potential readers. It is tedious to convert your book to Mobi and Epub formats, for instance, and each has distinguishing characteristics. If you outsource your ebook conversion to a professional company, they can quickly and efficiently convert your book in both formats so that it reaches a vast majority of ebook readers.
Specialists personally handle the ebook conversion (on top of computer algorithms). It means smart humans will be working with pre-programmed algorithms to convert your book. By way of DIY if you use a free conversion service, the process utilizes pre-programmed algorithms, but your book has to exactly follow the formatting requirements. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with many issues with the output and you have no choice but to do the conversion process all over again. You don’t have to get wound up with that problem if you pay a specialist to do the task. A professional ebook conversion company assigns specialists who will carefully examine your work for errors. You can always complain if there are mistakes in the conversion- something you can’t do with computer algorithms. And whatever errors get rectified.
You are an author. That’s what you’re good at and should singularly be doing. You can convert and design your ebook, but it’s something you probably don’t want to do. You could get lost and infuriated at the hassles of learning the complicated process of ebook conversion, so it’s a wise idea to let a team of professionals do it for you. If you have a deadline to beat, no worries. Turnaround time for ebook conversion assignments is usually less than a week. In short, focus on being an author and let an ebook conversion service take care of everything else.
