As one of the first publishers to jump on board the ebook train, Books of the Dead Press has been able to see the ever-changing landscape within the e-publishing world from the start. We understand how various developments within the industry influence sales and marketing. A couple of years ago we started to focus on marketing more seriously. From there we began helping authors and publishers create and promote their products with our "Friends of the Dead" program and our "Book Covers for Sale" service. A few weeks ago we announced the end of those two programs. Today we are announcing the launch of a new service.
BOOK-ie is a free daily service that notifies readers about deep discounts and ebook giveaways. Promotions start in December 2014, but you can subscribe today. Daily selections are based on the subscribers preferences.
Our goal is simple, but huge: to connect thousands of authors with millions of readers.
You may be wondering if BOOK-ie is for the horror community only, and the answer is no. It's for everybody––all different types of readers and authors.
If you're a reader, joining couldn't be easier. Just tell us what types of books you like and where to send the information. We'll do the rest. Spent 15 seconds HERE and you'll be done. We don't even need to know your name.
If you're a writer, we're currently offering our service for the ultra-low price of $10 while we gather subscribers. Again, promotions begin in December 2014.
Marketing for this service quietly began a couple weeks ago while we worked out a few bugs in the system. Having said that, we've already attended one small convention and launched a paid Facebook campaign, and subscribers are signing up at a surprising rate. As time moves on, our marketing will become more aggressive online and in person. Look for us over the next few months at the Word on the Street festival, the Toronto Fan Expo, the Ottawa Geek Market, The Strange and Astounding Show, and the Toronto Zombie Walk, amongst other places.
