Welcome to a new series of quick self-publishing tips from our upcoming speakers at the Alliance of Independent Authors Self-Publishing Advice Conference in association with London Book Fair. The conference is fast approaching, March 14-15th, 2020 is right around the corner, so what better way to launch the count down than with a tip from Ricardo Fayet, co-founder of Reedsy on outsourcing.
Ricardo Fayet’s Quick Tip
Learn how and when to outsource. All the things that are required from indie authors nowadays used to be tackled by several people at publishing companies in the past: managing editors, art directors, publicists, marketers, assistants, etc. With indie publishing comes ever greater responsibility, but you can’t take on all of that on your own — or you’ll burn out. So learn what you’re good at (and enjoy doing), and progressively enlist the help of professionals, assistants, or even friends/family for the rest.
