The opportunity in mobile publishing is staggering. It is estimated that, by 2011, there will be over one billion web-enabled mobile phones worldwide.
For those who may be considering putting their resources into other e-book formats, please consider this: iPhone owners outnumber Kindle owners by a ten to one ratio. While there is a Kindle app for iPhone, Kindle pays only one third of the book price back to the author for self published works, whereas Apple pays over two thirds back to the author/creator of each app.
In this webinar, we will demystify the iTunes store, iPhone app creation, and the approval process, and put you in the driver's seat. What you'll learn:
- 3 things you need to do to (that most people don't) to make your app succeed
- A strategy for turning free content into pay content
- Connecting your new app audience to your printed book
- A list of basic resources to get you going
