Reach a new audience

Plenty of people find it easier to listen to audiobooks than to read. The success of Audible has demonstrated that. By offering your content in audio form, you'll get people engaged who don't have the time time read through the ebook. 

What people are saying?

"Podcasting is rapidly becoming an important part of blogging. Odovox turns your blog posts into podcasts that anyone can listen to -- no matter where they are. It adds another dimension to your blog, and Odovox makes it easy, creating professional-sounding podcasts. My experience with Odovox has been great."

The Service

The step-by-step process is simple and straightforward:

  1. Send a copy of your ebook to contact@odovox.com
  2. We'll determine if it's a good fit for audio form and come back with an estimate of how long the project will take and how long the finished audiobook will be
  3. Odovox begins the recording, editing, and post-production
  4. The produced audio is prepared into various audiobook formats such as iTunes Audiobooks, MP3, AAC, and more.
  5. If the ebook is offered for free, so will the audiobook. For paid ebooks, the audiobook will also be for sale at a set price. Odovox will determine the price for the audiobook.
  6. The audiobook is published online and available for purchase
  7. The ebook author is contacted and provided with links and codes to refer readers to the audiobook
  8. Users purchase the audiobook
  9. A monthly statement is provided to the author as well as a disbursement of funds

Odovox maintains the hosting and publishing for you. People can use the website to download the audiobook. It can be transparent though if you want to make it more seemless. That is, you can link directly to the audiobook download file (if it's a free download) from your own website, social media pages, and email campaigns.

If your ebook is free, we'll make the audibook available for free as well. If you charge your customers for your premium ebook, Odovox will also put it up for sale. The price is determined by Odovox.

Roughly 150WPM is used for the estimate of the audiobook length. Here's how you can determine how long the audiobook will be:
(ebook word count) * 150 = audiobook length, in minutes

Promoting your audiobook
The audiobook can be described as an audiobook version of the ebook and "produced in collaboration with Odovox.com" or some such co-branding statement. 
The audiobook will be listed on Odovox.com. Links will be included to the author’s website and to the eBook. 
For the author, anywhere the ebook is listed, users should also see a link to the audiobook. This helps maximize exposure to the audiobook and gain a new wider audience of people who might not otherwise read the ebook.
For example, on the ebook’s listing you can add: "To download an audio version, go to Odovox.com/BookName”.

Include the link to Odovox in the confirmation email that people receive when they sign up for your email list to receive their free ebook.  You can advertise as, "sign up to receive both the e-book and the audio version", so people will know they'll have the option.
