Publish, Market and Promote your book, this is the key to success
Any self-publishing company can produce a book; very few have the marketing and promotional resources to generate sales for your book.
Recently, dozens of start up self-publishing companies have been popping up on the Net. 95% of these have no experience in the book industry. They have no contacts with industry professionals, literary agents, distributors; have never attended international book fairs, or anything else. They are in it for the money, only.
As an author, you should do your due diligence, and ask for their publishing results, time in business and how many books they have published. If they can’t give you a string of books like these Amazon best sellers below, then it is up to you to decide what you want for your book. Remember, you have poured your heart and soul into your book, do you really want to hand it over to a company with very little to no experience in the self-publishing world?
At Australian Self-Publishing Group Pty Ltd we have the marketing and promotion capabilities to get your book out to the whole world. We have 230,400 partner companies at this time that can get your book and eBook seen by millions of book lovers.
Many authors become fixated on publishing, but what they do not realise is that this is only 20% of the journey; the other 80% is marketing. The plain truth is, with no marketing or promotion, there will be no sales. This is where we can help.
For over 8 years, we have specialised in book marketing and promotion. As book marketing and promotion specialists, we can help you get your book out in front of industry people and find you the right market. Each year we attend the biggest international book fairs, where we promote Australian books to the world (your book could be one of these). The book fairs we attend each year are Taipei international book fair in February, Beijing in August and the Frankfurt Book Fair in October.
We also specialise in internet marketing and promotion. Gone are the days when authors sold their books exclusively through bookstores; with the emergence of eBooks, sold through companies such as Amazon, it has forever changed the way people buy and read books. We will help you get your books onto this platform, and in addition to this, we can also show you how to get hundreds of people selling your book all over the internet through affiliate marketing. We are very familiar with this method of marketing; most other publishers are not.
To find out how we can help you publish, market and promote your book, please send us an email or a request, we would love to hear from you – firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are not vanity publishers, we are cooperative self-publishers
This means unlike other so-called self-publishing companies, we give you 100% copyright to your book, not just to your written words. We give you all high-resolution files of the cover design, the interior layout and all fonts used. They are yours, you paid for them, you own them. This also means you do not have to buy over priced copies of your book from anyone, you are free to print anywhere at the best costs you can get.
If you decide to deal with an overseas vanity publisher, because they tell you they can print your book for $4, ask them what the postage is on the books? You will discover that the book will cost you $14 to $15 after postage. You cannot make a profit buying a book at $15, you will lose money.
A note of caution: If any company asks you to pay upfront for their publishing services, be very aware. Once you pay, you are at their mercy. We get emails all the time from authors who have lost their money or received a book that was well below standard. We never charge authors full costs before they are happy with the book; nor should any other company.
