AN IMMERSIVE LOOK INTO THE UNPARALLELED GROWTH OF AUDIOBOOKS IN PUBLISHING

Despite recent economic challenges, audiobooks surged by 10% amidst the pandemic, solidifying their status as the fastest-growing sector in publishing by 2023. The data speaks volumes: producing an audiobook expands your audience and boosts sales. But who exactly comprises this growing audience, and what fuels this format’s relentless rise?  Let’s dive a little deeper and find out.

THE REAL REASON: THE TARGET AUDIENCE

Busy schedules, packed with meetings and unexpected calls, leave little time for reading. Yet, for those who crave the joy of books amidst chaos, audiobooks offer a solution. They’re the ones you’re targeting, and as time progresses, their numbers will only swell.

Below we have revealed your target Audiobook Audience:

ON-THE-GO TRAVELERS

Your target audience, traveling professionals, are constantly on the move, be it by plane, train, or car. Audiobooks revolutionize their reading experience, liberating them from the constraints of physical books. Perfect for commutes and travel, audiobooks free up hands and eyes, seamlessly integrating into your audience’s busy lifestyle and increasing your presence in their daily routine.

THOSE “TOO BUSY TO READ”

From busy business leaders to working parents, the demand for time-efficient content spans across various professions and lifestyles. Audiobooks cater to a diverse audience eager for valuable insights on the go. By creating an audiobook, you tap into a vast market, reaching individuals from all walks of life who crave or require your message.

PREFERENCE AND NEED

Whether it’s a matter of personal preference or necessity, audiobooks cater to a wide array of individuals. Some thrive on multitasking, while others benefit from auditory learning methods or seek to declutter their space. For those with vision impairments, ADHD, or financial constraints, audiobooks offer an invaluable alternative. With a plethora of subscription services like Audible, Audiobooks.com, Apple, Chirp, Downpour, Scribd, Kobo, and one-time purchases, audiobooks have never been more accessible. They bridge the gap, granting access to a world of knowledge and entertainment for those who may have otherwise been excluded from traditional reading experiences.

IN SUMMARY

Launching an audiobook edition of your book amplifies your impact, improves accessibility, and unlocks added advantages like heightened engagement and revenue potential. It’s a savvy strategy to broaden the versatility, availability, and appeal of your content to a diverse audience.

How long does it take to create an audiobook?

When we produce an audiobook, we work as efficiently as possible to ensure both a smooth and timely production.  For an average six-hour audiobook, production time is typically between 6 and 8 weeks from first day of record.  This would include recording, editing, proofing, mastering, QC approvals and submission to distributor platforms.  The timeline can also be affected by factors such as casting, talent availability, studio availability and any other unforeseen delays.

I don’t have the funds to do this at the moment. Is there another way or payment options?

As with all business ventures, an initial investment is required and producing an audiobook is no different.  Standard payment terms are 50% at the start and the balance due prior to distribution.  We do accept credit cards such as Visa and Mastercard, and other payment types including Venmo and PayPal.

Plus, the sooner you get started, the sooner you will be able to recoup your investment and start making money with your audiobook.
