Newport News, VA (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
BookDaily.com, the leading source of book samples online, has entered into an agreement with Email Transmit to provide email marketing services to authors. The partnership is designed to help authors use email marketing to connect with readers joining their email lists through BookDaily and other online marketing endeavors.
“As book content continues to migrate to the digital environment, it is becoming increasingly important for book authors and publishers to connect with readers directly online. BookDaily is designed to help authors expose their work to readers and encourage them to opt-in to the authors’ email lists,” said Scott Wolf, CEO of ArcaMax Publishing, BookDaily’s parent company.
“The natural next step is to offer a solution for the authors to then communicate with these readers who have expressed interest in the authors’ work using email. We researched the industry and determined that Email Transmit is uniquely suited to serve this market,” Wolf said.
Email Transmit is a division of Mass Transmit, a full service interactive marketing company. The company’s president, Anthony Schneider, is also an author. His book “Tony Soprano on Management” became a bestseller on Amazon, reaching 127 in sales. Schneider credits email marketing to its success. “I first tried hiring a PR firm to help me market my book, but that wasn’t cost effective. So I turned to email marketing, and that’s what worked,” Schneider said. “That’s why I’m so impressed with BookDaily. We’re excited to be able to work with their authors.”
The Email Transmit solution for BookDaily authors includes author newsletter templates, email list management, tracking, reporting functions, and email marketing expertise.

Wolf said that BookDaily is targeting self-published authors with its approach. According to book industry statistical source R.R.Bowker, 764,448 book titles were self-published in 2009.
“We are committed to providing the best online marketing resources available to help authors and publishers market online. We distribute sample chapters of their books on the BookDaily.com website and through related emails, and then make it easy for the readers to connect with the authors and buy their books,” Wolf said.
