Outskirts Press Is Getting an Upgrade!

Outskirts Press

The relaunch of the NEW Outskirts Press website is scheduled for August 1. With the relaunch comes all new publishing packages, branding, and messaging.  Our new suite of publishing service icons will prominently feature a new “O” when the new publishing packages are introduced on the new website.  This “O” will also play a small role in the graphic design of some of our advertising efforts, both online and offline, as we roll out new advertising and marketing campaigns.  Some other upgrades include:

  • Using one consistent trade-marked logo everywhere — the “stacked” version
  • Featuring a rotating header image that features our monthly publishing, marketing, and writing promotions
  • Offering a menu at the top that links to our shopping cart, our contact us page, our author login page, and our bookstore

Your book is written. Your book is published. Now what? Our list of Top 10 Book Marketing Tactics can help you prioritize your book marketing efforts by providing you with excellent marketing and promotional tactics you should consider pursuing.

These are the marketing products and tactics determined to be most popular by our authors for the month of May 2013, listed below in alphabetical order:

Amazon Extreme Package: Save 25% on 3 of our marketing services focused on Amazon.com. This package includes a Kindle Edition of your book, participation in the Amazon Search Inside the Book and Amazon Cover Enhancement.
Amazon Kindle Submission Service:  Make your book available on Amazon’s Kindle ebook reading device. More formats on Amazon means more exposure on Amazon, and the Kindle is heavily promoted by Amazon.

Amazon Search Inside the Book: Amazon claims that books participating in this program enjoy “significant” sales improvement, on average, over books that do not.
Barnes & Noble NOOK Submission Service:  Millions of books are available on Barnes & Noble’s NOOK. If your book isn’t one of them, you are missing out on tapping a very important, and growing, market of readers.
Barnes & Noble See Inside:  Barnes & Noble’s answer to Amazon’s “Search Inside the Book” program. Books that participate in this program receive a “See Inside” icon next to their Barnes & Noble cover image, which invites potential customers to electronically “flip” through a small section of the book.
Book Review Submission Service: Securing positive book reviews is the first step toward building word-of-mouth buzz for your book. In addition to receiving a complimentary copy of your book, the reviewers will also receive a professional cover letter, a coy of your press, and your sales sheet. We take care of all of that for you, including sending the review copy!
Custom Press Release:  Have our professional press release writer compose an original, unique press release for your book, submitted to you for your review/approval, and then distributed to our newswire service on your behalf.
Elite E-Book Package: Combine the 3 most popular electronic edition submissions. This package includes formatting and distribution of an Amazon Kindle Edition, an Apple iPad/iPhone Edition, and a Barnes and Noble Nook Edition of your book.
