In its continuing effort to further support self-published authors, leading self-publishing and book marketing company Outskirts Press has increased the value of 4 different book marketing services for its authors – without increasing the costs — by adding professional marketing consultations, new social networking channels, and more.
January 26, 2010 – Denver, CO – Outskirts Press, an Inc. 500 company and the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, today announced it has greatly improved four of its popular book marketing services for its growing family of self-published authors. The CD Media Kit, Enhanced Audio Excerpt, Book Video, and Amazon Kindle Edition options by have each been expanded to bring more benefits without additional cost.
Recognizing the value and necessity of live, 1-on-1 marketing consultation, Outskirts Press has also added the 30-minute marketing call to the Enhanced Audio Excerpt option at no additional cost. The Enhanced Audio Excerpt offers a two to three minute audio recording of a section of an author’s book, recorded by book marketing guru and Blog Talk Radio host Sally Shields. Not only is this option ideal for authors who may not like the sound of their own voice, but the Enhanced Audio Excerpt is distributed and syndicated just like a Podcast, which includes availability on multiple content sites, including iTunes.
The CD Media Kit already offered by Outskirts Press includes a customized CD-ROM that authors can use to promote their book. Included on the CD are a professionally written press release, an author biography and book summary, a marketing plan and promotional calendar, an author image, and a secure e-book edition of the book. Now each CD Media Kit option includes a valuable thirty minute phone consultation with an Outskirts Press Personal Marketing Assistant, to help the author develop their marketing plan and promotional calendar to be included in the CD-ROM.
“After their marketing consultation, now our authors can hit the ground running with a full understanding of how to use their CD Media Kit and/or Enhanced Audio Excerpt to support the successful marketing of their book,” stated Outskirts Press Director of Author Support, Kelly Schuknecht.
The Book Video Trailer option offered by Outskirts Press has also been improved with no additional charge to the author to feature a newer, cutting-edge style, and now includes social networked links through Facebook and Twitter. Outskirts Press Book Video Trailers are approximately one minute in length, professionally produced like a Hollywood movie trailer, and are embedded on the author’s own Outskirts Press webpage as well as distributed to YouTube, Metacafe, MySpace and a host of other online video outlets.
Outskirts Press books can now be available on the iPhone, thanks to the free Kindle application for the iPhone, currently one of the hottest apps on iTunes. With the Outskirts Press Amazon Kindle Edition option, Outskirt Press is able to take advantage of Amazon’s own increased promotional services so that Outskirt Press books with Amazon Kindle editions are now available on the iPhone and iPod Touch as well as through Amazon’s regular on-line store. This announcement also comes with an improvement in the formatting and conversion processes conducted on Outskirts Press books to ensure their Kindle editions are among the best in the business.
