 Make sure that your book is ready

It is a huge mistake to go into the Audiobook process without a fully finished and polished product. Your book needs to be edited properly so it is in its final form. Moreover, be sure you determine which extra sections you want to include (table of contents, foreword, acknowledgments, etc.) for the narrator to read.

Listen to the other Audiobooks

 Listen to some of your favorite books and pay attention to how they are read. Note the quality of the audio and the ways in which they are formatted. This will help you get a sense of what you need to do to make your title a success in the audio realm!

Create a Script

​​​​​​​To create a winning audiobook, which someone cannot just read as it needs to be performed it is necessary for you to go over your completed manuscript to ensure that it contains direction and notes for the narrator. Indicate where natural pauses should be placed, and highlight words and phrases that should be emphasized.

Find your voice (To DIY or Not To DIY)

You know your story better than anyone does, so it makes sense for you to act as narrator. However, be honest and think that is your voice the best one for this particular story. Will a professional narrator and production studio allow you to create a more polished and marketable finished product? On the other hand, are you truly capable of doing it on your own?

Consider Costs

Maybe you can try to justify the costs associated with setting up your own home studio for audiobook production, but you have to be honest with yourself about the amount of money, which will cost and what you can expect to get back in return on your investment. By outsourcing service, you will need to pay the service provider so it is up to you to determine the most effective path forward, cost-wise, for your Audiobook efforts.

Do not just dive in without a plan since Audiobooks are big business, and they represent an opportunity to grow your platform considerably. Outsourcing services indeed make the process relatively simple, but they are not ideal for everyone. However, if you start with a great product and do your due diligence, you will find the ideal Audiobook solution for your brand and your audience!
