The rise of e-books and e-readers opens new doors for potential business-to-business
authors. One can self-publish their own e-book and sell it online or market the business
documents they’ve worked so hard to create — the opportunities are limitless. Below
are some e-book publishers, document marketplaces and digital libraries where buyers
and sellers exchange B-to-B content.
If you are looking to publish and sell that business e-book, Lulu is one of the first places
you should investigate. Using simple publishing tools, authors format and upload their
own digital content and then take advantage of Lulu’s global marketplace, social
networking and author services, free customized online stores and retail listings on
Amazon, Barnes & Noble and many more. The generous 80/20-revenue split also
empowers authors to profit from their work.
While this company offers a range of professional editorial and self-publishing tools
that authors would expect from a traditional publisher, iUniverse’s marketing services
are probably its strong suit. Their special recognition and awards programs are
designed to create more opportunities for retail presentation and placement that goes
well beyond the Internet.
Issuu is an e-publishing platform that enhances and customizes digital editions of your
content that can be marketed and sold to target audiences. Used by some of the top
publishing companies and other brands looking to reach new audiences for their digital
business content, Issuu’s Pro Solution starts at $19 per month.
This is both a digital publishing library and marketplace where users can read, publish,
buy, sell and share content. Anyone can publish in a range of formats including reports
and presentations, e-books, catalogs and more. The YUDU Plus and Pro products are
the professional self-publishing options for writers, authors, businesses and marketers.

uploaded has a greater return on the investment of producing it, whether you are a
