How career advice helps

Frequently, standard information on career planning, such as we find in magazines, on the Internet, or in books, can often only give initial impulses for successfully implementing our very individual ideas of success. Everything else we have to find ourselves.

But the choice of possibilities is unmanageable and sometimes we can not see the forest in front of the trees:

  • In which area do I want to work?
  • Are my interests relevant to the industry?
  • Can I meet the requirements made in the job?
  • Should I accept the new, interesting job offer or still stay with my old, safe job?
  • What further training helps me to develop my professional career?
  • Does a (second) degree study improve my chances in the job market?
  • How do I find my Traumberuf? What are the risks of self-employment?

The contents of the book:

The BBC on the business model of Bookboon

E-books are on the rise - as evidenced by the Danish e-book publisher Bookboon, which is portrayed here by the BBC. But how does the collaboration with Bookboon actually work and why as a reader can you download my texts for free?

For a long time, I had been looking for a simple and practical solution to make my texts available as e-books to my readers. Because e-books have the big advantage compared to the blog that you can read them offline on the mobile phone.

E-books cost time and money

The disadvantage, however, is that they are a lot of work: The texts do not just have to be put into a coherent text form, but also formatted and layouted.

This, in turn, causes great expense and expense. And in order to play it, I would have to offer the e-books again. This, in turn, would have created an even greater expenditure on technology:

Cost use Bill

For example, the installation of a secure online shop with a data protection lawful payment system and a download server. And at the latest the matter became critical. So no e-books for my readers?

A partner had to come here. And that was Bookboon. Bookboon.com is a subsidiary of Ventus Publishing, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Since its founding, 1988 has been the focus of Ventus Publishing's publication of educational books for students and business people.

Free download as an additional service

Since 2005, the company uses bookboon.com exclusively for free e-books. Readers need to provide a few dates for download. The whole thing is financed by a small advertisement in the book. As a result, I also earn a few euros as an author for compiling and writing the texts.

But I have no further effort with it and you as a reader can now download my texts for free. And not only mine: Bookboon.com is active worldwide and offers a selection of 1000 e-books that users can download directly from the website.

The business model

The publisher currently records 10 million downloads annually. Its current headquarters has bookboon.com in London with additional offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Munich.
