How to Fund Your Self-Published Book #BizBookAwards Chat Recap

Self-publishing has become a serious option for small business owners and business writers seeking to boost their expertise, establish some new revenue, or perhaps create a viable new business model. The trick is funding the costs associated with publishing that first book.

In a Twitter chat Wednesday, we examined some of the approaches for raising money to fund your first self-publishing projects. Guests included Nancy Spooner Bsharah (@SurfDateBook) co-author of Everything I Know About Dating I Learned Through Surfing and Susan Payton (@eggmarketing), author of 101 Entrepreneur Tips and Internet Marketing Strategies for Entrepreneurs.

Leading the discussion were Ivana Taylor (@DIYMarketers), Publisher of DIYMarketers and Book Editor for Small Business Trends and Anita Campbell (@SmallBizTrends), founder of the Small Business Book Awards, and the co-author of Visual Marketing, published by Wiley.

Here are excerpts from the chat:
