This article explains Online Publishing Model and how small-time authors and/or self-publishers can use the OPM as a more lucrative alternative to the often archaic and dysfunctional traditional book publishing model. In short, using OPM you will make more book sales and you will get more profits, faster.
Usually, you will make your book/ebook in the source processing program like MS-Word or WordPerfect. After you convert it into PDF format you will be ready to get your book published and start selling it through three main channels that make up the online publishing model: 1. Sales-Mini Site, 2. Digital Download Distributor, 3. Print-on-Request Distributor (POD).

This article explains many benefits of using the online publishing model (OPM).
Frankly, after my experience was frustrating and disappointing using traditional book publishing models, I was really fascinated when I found many benefits from the online publishing model. I am happy to find that there are actually alternatives that allow me to write and publish books and ebooks to make a living.
Benefits of Online Publishing Models
You will make more money
Instead of getting paltry3% to 35%, you will get somewhere between 60% and 90% of your cover price, depending on the three channels you use.
You can charge more
People are willing to pay more if they can get the information they are looking for almost immediately. Higher price = more benefits for you.
You will be paid faster
Many online payment processors will pay you within two weeks after the sale. On the other hand, traditional publishers and distributors will keep you waiting for 90 to 120 days for payment.
