You spoke, we’re listening! Recently, Outskirts Press asked you, our self-publishing authors, to imagine what you would do if put in charge of running the company. If you had your druthers, what new marketing option would you offer? You spoke loud and clear: Your choice, with 36% of the vote, is the Goodreads Marketing Campaign. Here’s how the voting on all our proposed options panned out:
|Goodreads Marketing Campaign||36%|
|Publishers Weekly Select||24%|
|RTIR (Radio-TV-Interview Report) Ad Placement||16%|
|US Review of Books||12%|
|Pinterest Board Creation||12%|
Look for the Goodreads Marketing Campaign option to become available as part of Outskirts Press’ stellar lineup of services very soon.
In the past, your input has guided us to introduce things like our Amazon Featured Book-of-the-Week and iPad/iPhone Premium Edition. Once again, your feedback has helped us determine what new product or service we might offer this year that will be most valuable to you in your book marketing efforts.
Now, more about that Goodreads Marketing Campaign: With more than 40 million members, Goodreads is the world’s largest community of readers, and at Outskirts Press, we want to help you connect with those readers. When this new option launches, we will help you to claim your author profile on Goodreads and set up a book giveaway to generate awareness and reviews for your book. We will also create an ad on Goodreads that will be seen by readers searching for new books. Custom stats will be available so you can see how many views, clicks, and the number of Goodreads members who add your book. A comprehensive approach to reach Goodreads affluent and educated audience of book readers.
Thanks to all our authors who chimed in on what services mean most! Keep an eye on Self-Publishing News from Outskirts Press for important announcements about the launch of the Goodreads Marketing Campaign service.
