Using the web to generate income the old fashioned way

Wednesday May 9, 2012 at 10:37am

Companies such as Amazon changed the market place for books forever.  They have given conventional High Street book stores such as Waterstones, Borders (who went bust) a run for their money - and many people said that the printed book is on its way out.

But the internet has opened up many new avenues for book publishing for prospective authors as our client has found.

Established in 2011, they already have literally thousands of authors who have created their own POD (Print On Demand) books where book printers will physically print a copy of your book when someone buys it - delivering it within a few days to the customer's doorstep.

It costs nothing to create your book and the whole process can be done in a day.  For around £80 you can have it available to order from Amazon, Waterstones or any other book store in the world! have just told us that authors are receiving their last 6 month Royalty payments over the next few days - with literally thousands of books having being sold over the last few months - each of which generates a royalty for the author which is higher than other "print on demand" type websites.

Zarr developed the website for which manges and automates the workflow for authors, it handles liason and datafeeds with the printers as well as processing royalty reports to reward authors for their book sales.

If you have an opportunity for an online business, even if it solves an old-school type problem, then contact us and see what we can do to help you make your idea a reality.

With over 15 years developing websites since the pre-Google days, Zarr is well placed to get your business or idea online.
