How to use different publishers

I read somewhere that you can use different publishers as a promotional tool, but the draw back is that this method can be time consuming and daunting imagine publishing the same book in sites like, Lulu, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Kobo, Digital down load websites like bytecommerce or payloadz.

This method can guarantee loads of publicity but the down side is how many payment methods or accounts do you run. Having your book in several publishing sites does not guarantee sales but it helps, check out 30 places to promote your books.
