that in Colombia the phenomena of self-publishing and travel books are growing. part II

from the first part we return to this phrase to return to the thread of the conversation. selling books in Colombia is like placing a vegetable stand in the willy wonka chocolate factory: very difficult.

On average, each Colombian reads 1, 4 books a year. I wish it were ours, hopefully one day. we went to the market to sell what almost nobody buys: books.

we told you that we decided to write this guide when we were in Barcelona and decided to make this guide to Catalonia and Barcelona to enjoy this beautiful place, this book was self-published. It was also not just to write it, but to diagram it, to illustrate the cover and the photos that are there.

We are dedicated to write in a platform called authors editors that is great here in Colombia and we will continue writing here.

In this post we will talk about the physical birth of the book and how we have distributed it during the time that has passed since the day of the launch.

How much does it cost to self-publish a line in Colombia?

depends on several factors among which we can consider the number of sheets, the quality of the paper, whether or not it includes photos, special paper and especially the number of copies will be printed in each edition.

After having the time and desire to write the book, it costs 800,000 plus or minus some intangibles that do not appear on the list.

That is our budget. You will have to make your own. it is so that a global, generalized idea is made.

How do we finance it?

They think that we travel a lot, they think that we are millionaires and that they have a pocket ready to print the books. (After we will write a post about how to live traveling without being millionaires)

when we were in Cartagena.

we made it very simple, we wrote this book guide and we put it in author editors. we appear in google and in our social networks our book.

We believe in our project and we were not afraid to risk it. if we continue in an office, none of this would have happened: no trip, no travel guide, nothing. We work hard to realize our dream and the money will come at any time. and we are at this precise moment.

record of author’s work:

unlike the isbn, the copyright registration is free. however it is necessary to register the work in pdf. Once registered, your site can not be submitted to changes.

It has a duration of 15 days and books are not indispensable. it is a safeguard so that nobody reproduces to produce his book.

You can read the first 15 pages here:

https://www.autoreseditores.com/libro/14073/andrea-y-oscar-garcia/guia-de-viajes-cataluna-y-barcelona.html

then we decided to make the template of 11 x 17 cm and I think it’s good. we write it and we edit it very fast. that’s why we chose this size for the library, to load it in the purse, in the wallet, in the travel briefcase or to carry it in the hand in the public transport. we also find it beautiful in our book.

presale:

even without the physical books, we started the presale very recently. that’s why we created the emotional crossing shop on Facebook and placed it on the marketplace. We launched the book with something very special but daily travel to 45,000. the price on offer, lower than it will cost at launch. the book depends on how it will arrive (it will take a few days) you will have to wait for it to have them.

travel journals plus the book
travel diaries with the travel guide.

We gave him a launch and a presale and the launch event.

distribution:

without an editorial promoting promoting and rotating the book, writing the book is a children’s garden bought with the distribution. We have tried to reach as many people and we are just beginning. but we want to do it in an untraditional way to be known.

however, we hope to send this book to as many people as possible.

Anyway, despite how difficult it is, we can say that it can. There will be many people who want to read your book or travel guide. you will never know if it is going to be a literary success if you do not dare to write it. A closed door in a publishing house does not mean the end of your writer’s dream. when publishing the road it will be long, but it will be worth it.

We want to start making our trip first through Cartagena as well as Peru to know our place.

virtual shop on Facebook in Latin America to help you travel.

we have realized that creating an online store on Facebook has the possibilities of creating a virtual store on Facebook and that it is addressed to us who are called “influencers” or travel bloggers.

a very interesting way to travel without a return ticket is to create an online store on facebook to sell products like others.

Creating an online store helps you travel for a long time and place it online. but it is not enough to create your products and stay there waiting. It is necessary to go out to look for clients, create authority, sympathy and credibility. show authentic and create confidence.

We decided to create this online store while we work in traveling around the world, we are spreading it here and through social networks and we can sell everything.

but you have to have an important job to gain enough from the online store. with a few hours on the internet the possibility of selling the products over the internet will be achieved.

It is not just about uploading a product to the store and selling it. You also have to work so that the products are visible and know your customers to see what products they are going to buy and what they are not.

With the blog and social networks you can achieve online sales.

create a blog is basic to build trust and not only have confidence and generate not only visits but also future customers.

Besides showing your products also create post that have value. people have trouble buying online (in Colombia this is changing quickly) in the United States is very ingrained buying products online. It is because of the distrust of knowing who you are buying.

with a blog you can place travel tips, who you are, what you do, how you do it and why you do it. There are real people behind the store, you can make people identify with you and the story.

It is basic that you generate confidence to generate online sales. A blog that has positioned itself in Google will attract thousands of visits to your store. In addition, the project will be supported by a community of readers who identify with you. these visits will become sales.

a blog will help you to have confidence but social networks promote in social networks getting likes. the products that will be sold on trips will be moved by the blog and social networks.

I also help a lot to get to know my contacts on social networks. I help people who did not know my blog, nor the trips, nor the store, they decide to support the project by buying incredible things.

by the way, the last link that we are going to place here is an incredible yoga and organic lifestyle event, there is a congress worldwide and you can also have a discount here if you use the code that is on the last sheet.

if you are interested in seeing the store, subscribe and see what you are interested in seeing in the facebook store you can see it here:

As this movement of travel bloggers in Latin America is just developing and I see that they like the idea of being backpackers, traveling low cost, healthy life (that is, being organic, vegan and taking care of your food and supplementation) because we are going to focus on this.

Also the Youtube channel will give a twist about focusing on this plus travel tips for backpackers, low cost travel, travel vlogging and healthy living.

At last we find the possibility of helping everyone in the Latino community to have trips as a local throughout the world and we can enjoy as a couple.

Oh By the way. If you love the idea that we believe custom tours in Latin America as backpackers can tell us.

Do ebooks and tourism infoproducts hit more in the Anglo-Saxon world than in Spanish?

It is known that Anglo-Saxon blogging takes light years to Latin and Spanish blogging.

On the internet, hundreds of Australian or North American bloggers have managed to live on a blog but that is not important.

In the case of English bloggers jhon chow generates 100,000 a month, darren rowse earns more than 30,000 a month promoting their ebooks or pat flynn with 50,000 monthly income with niche pages.

There is another like nomadic matt that talks about his books like: how to have travel hacks to get free tickets and hotels.

Another book is conquering mountains: the traveling guide for women who travel alone, among others.

Monetization in Spanish is about travel is Antonio G with traveling intelligence.

Only 1000 Hispanic bloggers live on their blogs.

That’s why you have to be patient and wait for monetization. (What is expected is that we reach the level of the Anglo-Saxon world)

But we want to dedicate ourselves to be the pioneers of dedicating ourselves to infoproducts and ebooks.

If you like the idea, you can do it here:

This is a way to generate income not for a job, but for your creativity and what you can do.

We hope in the comments they gave on the subject.
