ROIs (Return on Investments) are written documents based on research that help evaluate the feasibility of publishing projects. They are tools that allow for adjustment of production details to increase likelihood of meeting financial success criteria. ROIs are used by traditional publishers and should be used in self-publishing efforts—even if financial profitability is not required. Even if you do not want to create your own project ROI, understanding how your publisher will utilize an ROI will assist you in negotiating publishing contracts and effectively impacting marketing efforts.
