Outskirts Press Books Receive Statistically Higher Ratings on Amazon

Outskirts Press Books Receive Statistically Higher Ratings on Amazon Than The Other Five Major Online Self Publishing Companies

Of the 7302 books published by Outskirts Press that were for sale on Amazon as of July, 55% have received a rating.

Compare that with the other five major online publishers, where that percentage is 42%, 30%, 25%, 21%, and 15%. Yes, only fifteen percent of authors from one of the major online publishers have managed to receive even one review of the book they worked so hard to write.

Perhaps that is because once the book is published, those publishers forget about them. After all, those authors do not receive years of ongoing marketing support via email like Outskirts Press authors do with the exclusive Outskirts Press Marketing COACH.

Since one-star ratings are possible, receiving a rating doesn’t necessarily equate to “quality.” But receiving a rating does relate to ENGAGEMENT by the author in terms of marketing effort.

So now let’s look at the quality of books being published by the six major online publishers by examining the percentage of reviews that received four stars or higher:

Publishing Firm % of 4 or 5 star ratings
Outskirts Press 52%
Company A 24%
Company C 27%
Company L 13%
Company U 37%
Company X 19%

52% of all Outskirts Press books have received a rating of 4 stars or higher on Amazon, compared with 24%, 27%, 13%, 37%, and 19%.

That is a demonstration of quality. And when you figure that 52% are coming only from the 55% that received a rating at all, that means 95% of Outskirts Press books that are rated receive an Amazon rating of 4 stars or better.

In addition to writing, I enjoy the time I spend with my
husband of thirty years, our three daughters and sons-in-law,
and eight grandchildren who are all characters in the
series of books On Angels Wings.

I couldn’t have asked for a better representative who
worked so hard to help and guide me in such a positive
direction. What I liked so much about him was the fact
that he was there for me when I needed him by phone or

The marketing team has given me so many creative ideas
on how to promote my book. I like the fact that this part
of the publishing process will carry on long after the
publication of my book.

I was unsure about going with a self publishing company,but what I read about them I find to be true: Outskirts Press represents the future of book publishing, today.

I also loved the fact that I was able to keep my rights to my work and was consulted when it came to setting my
retail price.

Thank you, Outskirts. I look forward to publishing with you again.
