IBP’s Goals for 2016

goals-2016-resized-1080x675

Sharing our goals with you, writers and readers.

Hi everyone! This is Jasveena from IBP. It has a been a long, busy journey since I founded IBP in 2013. It has been a little over 2 years now and we have come a long way from where we began and it has been a tough yet exhilarating process of understanding the world of writers and the publishing industry.

As time passes, we are getting more focused on revamping our marketing efforts to truly reflect International effort of bringing books and authors much closer to authors across borders. To define where we would go in the next five years, we have constructed goals with time plans that would change the way we market books and reach audiences at large. What’s a New Year without goals anyway?

 We foresee to achieve the following missions in the next five years.

  1. Branding authors with book-related merchandises
  2. Connecting readers and authors through book signing events
  3. Bridging the gap between western writers and eastern readers through book reviewers across different countries.
  4. Making indie books available where there are demands by using print on demand method.

What are your writing-related goals?

Happy New Year from IBP and we hope that 2016 brings you more luck and success in your life as a whole.
I stumbled upon these two websites that have some details on author signing events in the USA throughout 2016. I thought it would be beneficial for authors to expand their network and also sell books at the same time.
If you need to order goodie bag items for the events, be sure to get in touch with us.

We would like to wish all our blog followers and customers a very Happy New Year! 🙂

 

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,900 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Brand Yourself as Authors with IBP

 

What does ‘author branding’ mean?

As an author, branding yourself means picking the unique features of yourself and your work that are interesting and appealing to readers to make you distinctive, in a world overrun with talented up-and-coming authors.

Why is branding essential for authors?

You and your publicists will be responsible for your book’s marketing and publicity. You, as the author, need to find a way to make your work stand out. Establishing yourself as a unique brand should increase the interest in your work, and set a standard for future releases.

Take a new route to brand yourself as the new age author! Now, imagine yourself hosting a book release event. What would you offer as souvenirs for your fans at author events? IBP envisions authors as authorpreneurs and we are here to help you brand yourself as authors through merchandises.

We are glad to announce that you, as authors, can now purchase a wide variety of CUSTOM MADE author merchandises like name cards, bookmarks, mugs, writing tools, pen drives and etc. through IBP. While we work on having the catalogues ready, we thought that you would like to grab the Christmas offer below.
