Outskirts Press, the fastest-growing full-service self-publishing and book marketing company today announced its top ten marketing tactics for May.

These are the marketing products and tactics determined to be most popular by Outskirts Press authors for the month of May 2014, listed below in alphabetical order:

  • Amazon Extreme Package: This package includes a Kindle edition, participation in the Amazon Search Inside the Book and Amazon Cover Enhancement.
  • Amazon Kindle Submission Service: Creates availability 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.
  • American Library Association (ALA) Book Fair: The ALA (American Library Association) annual conference attracts librarians from all levels of management, from all types of libraries, from all across the country. Authors can get their book exposed to thousands of librarians.
  • Barnes & Noble NOOK Submission Service: Millions of books are available on Barnes & Noble’s NOOK. If a book isn’t one of them, it’s 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 the 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 any book. In addition to receiving a complimentary copy of the book, the reviewers will also receive a professional cover letter, a copy of the press, and the sales sheet.
  • Custom Press Release: Have a professional press release writer compose an original, unique press release, submitted for review/approval, and then distributed to the news wire service.
  • iPad/iPhone Standard Edition with Outskirts Press Distribution: Allows self-publishing authors to enter the ebook marketplace at significantly lower upfront cost with a no-hassle, standard iBookstore retail price of $9.99. It’s the simplest one-click solution for published authors to publish a book in Apple’s iBookstore.
  • Personal Marketing Assistant: Need help developing a book marketing plan? Arranging book signings? Establishing/developing a author platform? Hire a Personal Marketing Assistant today!
