At Kbuuk we believe that everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s a great work of fiction crouching in the innermost recesses of the imagination and consciousness, just waiting for the right opportunity to be released and spring forth into a creative tour de force, or it’s a time in your life that was so poignant or moving that you learned valuable life lessons and you think others may benefit from in the form of an elegant or gritty memoir. Or perhaps you’re a professional, and you’ve accumulated years of experience doing the daily grind, or you’ve accomplished something extraordinary and you have tips, tricks, and advice that you just know others would appreciate. Not only do we believe that everyone has some kind of story to tell, but we also believe in your ability to tell your story, and we want to be here to help you succeed, and to make it happen.
Traditionally, publishing a book was left to a select elite few, but history teaches us that maybe these aren’t the people with the most interesting stories, and technology is changing the way that average people have the ability to communicate. Technology allows us to tell our story and get it to people around the globe in a matter of seconds if we want to.
From a marketing perspective we know there will always be an audience for a quality product, you just have to have the tools to be able to find the right one. With the tools available through Kbuuk, we aim to help you do just that.
Case 1: The Segway. The creators of the Segway thought their groundbreaking technology was going to be useful for everyone, and that we’d all be rolling around. Not so, because newsflash, most of us have two working legs that allow us to get from point A to point B rather efficiently. Why do we need some cumbersome, glorified rolling platform to get us around? After years of wondering what on earth can we use these things for, Segway seems to have found its home among tour groups, mall cops, and people who can’t be on their feet for long periods of time.
Case 2: Post-It Notes. The adhesive used for these ubiquitous, often indispensable office/household items was invented by a man by the name of Dr. Spencer Silver. Dr. Silver promoted his adhesive both internally at 3M and abroad, but it wasn’t until a man by the name of Art Fry needed a movable piece of paper that stayed in place to mark his church hymnal that BAM! Post-It Notes were born. (P.S. I wrote this blog post, right before I read this great article on creativity from the WSJ, I guess the Post-It example is a classic that touches on several different themes)
The point to both of these stories is that with enough enthusiasm and patience for your product (in this case your e-book with your story), technology will allow you to find the perfect fit for your work. The technology doesn’t exempt you from hard work, and it doesn’t mean that every writer is destined to rake in the big bucks, but we do however believe that if you believe in yourself the possibilities are endless. So go ahead and give it a try, tell your story.
