Turn Other People’s Information Formats Into A Publication
You could get permission from a publisher to transcribe an
or video into a print or electronic publication. You would
have nothing to write and you could just pay them an
up-front fee or royalties on your sales. Another alternative
is to Compile A Publication – You could allow other authors and
experts to write the publication for you in exchange for
free publicity or other incentives. You would simply contact the
authors and experts you want and ask them to donate some content.
2. You don’t know which format to use to publish your book.

the large quantity that youre selling.

other people to sell or give away the publication as their
own and charge them to place their ads in it. If it
