How to Publish an Audiobook
For 90% of books published on the market today, the booming audiobook marketplace represents the #1 opportunity for book discoverability. Why is that? Well, estimates are that there are a staggering 52 million book titles available on Amazon, yet only 300,000 titles available in the largest audiobook catalogs. The competition for what the book industry calls “discoverability” is much better for the author with an audiobook.
The audiobook business is the darling of the book publishing industry with impressive 37% growth the last 2 years running, and $2.1 billion per year spent on audiobooks. With this kind of popularity, audiobooks represent a lucrative source of income for authors.
If you’re new to audiobooks, here are a few important things to understand about audiobooks:
- Most people listen to audiobooks while on-the-go, as it is easy to multitask while listening
- The most popular places audiobooks are heard is while commuting, in the gym or while cooking
- 25% of listeners in the US prefer audiobooks, with a marketplace of just under 9 million listeners
Unfortunately, less than 1% of all books written have been recorded as audiobooks. But it doesn’t have to be that way for your book! Our mission is to support the legacy of your writing by getting audiobooks recording and distributed worldwide to virtually every audiobook retailer.
