Traditional, Self, and Hybrid Publishing. Which One to Choose? Part 2

November 18, 2022

When it comes to publishing your book, there are three main options: traditional publishing, self-publishing, and hybrid publishing. Each one has its own benefits and drawbacks, so how do you choose which one is right for you? In part 1 we explored the different publishing methods and how to choose which one is best for you.

Here are four important questions to ask yourself when looking for a publisher.

What audience will your book appeal to?

It’s important to know the audience your book will appeal to. Is it a vast audience that is worth the large investment of a traditional publishing company? Or is it suited for a smaller, niche audience that might best be reached better via hybrid or self-publishing?

How much are you willing to invest?

This question can be difficult to answer. It really depends on the goals you have for your book. If you are looking to get your book published and sell a few copies, then a smaller investment may be all that is needed. However, if you are looking to make a bigger impact and reach a wider audience, then you may need to invest more in order to get your book published and marketed properly. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide how much money you want to spend on publishing your book.

How soon do you want to be published?

Depending on the length and complexity of your book, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to get your book published. Book publishing with traditional publishers typically goes through a longer process than hybrid or self-publishing.

At Elite Online Publishing we strive to ensure that each book is given the attention it deserves. We will work with you to get your book published as quickly as possible without compromising on quality.

What does the final product look like?

What will the final version of your book look like? Publishers will vary a lot between the quality of the book and the promotion it receives. Decide now what you want the final version of your book to be. Research the steps it will take to reach that goal. Learn more about our publishing process.
