The Amazon Extreme Marketing Package from Outskirts Press offers self-publishing authors a head start on book marketing by taking triple advantage of the immense audience of Amazon.com, the largest online retailer in the United States. These valuable, popular options are free for authors who start self-publishing in April.
Outskirts Press, the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today it is giving away its most popular marketing package (over $200 value) to authors who start their publishing process this month. The Amazon Extreme marketing package includes a Kindle Edition, Search Inside the Book submission and Amazon Cover Enhancement, as well as a free copy of Sell Your Book on Amazon by Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson — everything an author needs to jump start their book sales on Amazon.com.
“This bundled marketing package is not available with any other publisher,” said Outskirts Press Vice President Kelly Schuknecht. “Taking advantage of these proven Amazon promotional functions is the perfect — and perfectly economical — way for authors to launch their book sales with gusto by choosing to publish now with Outskirts Press.”
Authors who start with Outskirts Press by choosing the Diamond or full-color Pearl publishing packages will receive over $200 of Amazon marketing options free: an Amazon Kindle edition of their published book, Amazon’s “Search Inside the Book” submission service, and the Amazon Cover Enhancement once their book is listed on Amazon.com. These authors will also receive a free copy of the Amazon bestseller Sell Your Book on Amazon by Brent Sampson.
The first prong of the Outskirts Press triple marketing approach is a free Kindle edition of the author’s book. An Amazon Kindle edition is a way to offer one’s book to the fast growing audience of Kindle e-book reading device owners. Amazon sells millions of Kindles annually. Because Amazon.com customers still love reading actual books, Kindle is an inexpensive way for them to sample a book before buying the paperback or hardback edition. This is especially true for their readers who love fiction.
With Amazon’s Search Inside the Book feature, the second Outskirts Press marketing tool in this package, authors can also dramatically increase their chances to sell their books. Amazon has found that books that participate in this program are significantly more successful, on average, than books that do not participate. Being able to browse through sections of the book increases the confidence the customer has in the product and makes it far more likely they’ll purchase a copy of the book.
The third marketing strategy of the Outskirts Press marketing package is the Amazon Cover Enhancement service. Outskirts Press submits your cover image to Ingram at the time of publication. Ingram, in turn, distributes your cover image to online retailers like Amazon. By manually interfacing directly with Amazon, we can override Amazon and Ingram’s automatic process and get your cover image on Amazon much faster, usually within 2-3 business days rather than the standard 30-45 days.
