If your book can't be found online, it only means one thing to your readers—it doesn't exist! So how can our virtual assistant for authors help librarians, retailers, and potential readers find your book? Metadata is the backbone of the publishing industry. And we make it as a foundation of your book's discoverability. The data being sent to retailers is what drives the sales of your book. Without it, publishers can't sell books to retailers, readers can't efficiently find your book online, and book sales suffer tremendously. With the steady increase of published titles each year as well as the rise of ebooks, it's even more important for self-published authors and publishers to understand how to create quality metadata to help make their books more discoverable online. Metadata is the data about data and book metadata is the lifeblood of the publishing industry, the primary marketing and discovery mechanism for consumers. We use metadata to level the playing field and allow self-published titles to compete alongside books from big traditional publishers. We managed your title's metadata. Metadata might seem geeky and a daunting technical model, however, it is not that complex. The process is easier than you think, only that it takes a little while to create quality metadata. We don't wish to confuse and mystify you any further with the words we use, so to save you from the dreary part of publishing we already have included book discoverability in our marketing platform through the virtual assistant for authors program.
PLEASE NOTE: A virtual assistant for authors (VAFA) is already assigned to your book project when you select the package option during the publishing stage. Please see list of work items of VAFA included in your package.
Visibility is the key. If your readers can't find your work online, it only means one thing to them—it doesn't exist. The internet is the fastest growing marketplace for books and authors are in the position to take advantage of the internet as a potent marketing and sales tool. Creating social media accounts or having a website is just a tip of the iceberg. After all, it is not just about having social media accounts. What good does it bring to you if your book can't reach the right people and readers can't find your book? Keywords to keep in mind: right people, discoverability, visibility.
Make no mistake, your strongest brand is your name. Ever wondered what make readers 'feverish' & race out to buy the latest book or new releases from authors such as J.K. Rowling? Two words: Author Branding. This is what distinguishes you from other authors in the market and identifies you and your work. Stand Out. Let your book take the spotlight.
Marketing is the most misunderstood amongst the four main ingredients for a book's success. In many ways, the work done in marketing a book varies and goes into different levels. In general, publishers market upstream to booksellers and distributors who will be purchasing your books and you—the author focus on marketing downstream to your readers. Our marketing programs are anchored on assisted marketing.
