Charleston, SC (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Bublish – the only cloud-based platform providing a complete social marketing and digital publishing solution for independent authors – today announced the beta launch of its new subscription-based marketing suite to help authors find, engage, and grow their audience. Bublish is meeting the brand building and marketing needs of today’s business savvy independent authors around the globe. The authorpreneur dashboard special “early adopter” pricing is available for a limited time at 60 percent off the standard rate.
The beta version will provide the ability to upload up to five books, create a public author profile and monitor social metrics. Additional features that will be rapidly added during the beta phase include eBook creation tools, pre-launch sales tools, writer’s resources and a branding widget.
“The success cycle for today’s authors must begin as they are writing their book. This is when engagement and pre-sales need to start. No one likes to launch their book into silence,” said Kathy Meis, founder of Bublish. “The Bublish authorpreneur dashboard is designed to support authors at every stage of their writing career. Bublish’s new feature-set will empower authors with the tools, metrics, and resources they need to become successful long-term marketers of their work and brand.”
By using Bublish to build a powerful author brand from the start, independent authors can break through the noise in today’s crowded book marketplace. The authorpreneur dashboard provides social metrics to help authors understand who their audience is and what resonates with them. When readers are engaged, they spread the word and become brand advocates. This leads to powerful word-of-mouth recommendations, long-tail sales, and a more recognizable brand when authors go to publish their next book.
The heart of the Bublish Platform is the book bubble. With Bublish’s easy-to-use interface, authors can create bubbles in seconds to promote their work to readers across multiple social channels. These highly sharable book excerpts include an author insight that tells the “story behind the story.” A book bubble is like a director’s cut for books. Authors can also sell their work through their book bubbles via major eBook retailers, including Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords.
