The book industry is going through a phenomenal change via internet where books now get sold online faster and easier. Internet marketing plays a pivotal role in publicizing your books. However, the fundamental rule of marketing applies regardless of the medium you use to sell. A good network system, a genuine approach and consistent engagement with potential buyers will help in selling more copies of your book(s)!
How well do you know about your readers? What are their responses or feedback after reading your book(s)? Authors who engage with their readers are more likely to have a stronger fan-base.
It’s our mission at IBP to enhance your web and social media presence by building your fan base and encouraging a healthy author-fan relationship via video marketing.
Who should sign up for this program?
1) Authors who believe that they are the best marketers for their book, are willing to speak confidently in front of a camera, and embrace video marketing for books. We strongly believe that when you trust us with our vision, we will be able to authentically highlight the essense of your book and your journey as an author.
2) We dedicate Sundays for Stories from the Unsung Heroes (featuring mostly inspiring stories of authors or books – best suits non-fiction books), Tuesdays for Your Next Page-Turner (mostly discussing the book, its characters and plot – best suits work of fiction) and Fridays for Fresh From The Oven (featuring debut authors or soon-to-be-released books).
3) Discuss your book and what you have on mind first prior to signing up, as we would like to ensure that everyone who signs up for this program has something solid to share with the audience. Pick a date and send us a request to book your show. We will then send you a confirmation and you can proceed to pay for the show.

- We will walk you through the process! Don’t worry about the technical issues! You can use your laptop or phone to join the interview but we highly recommend using a laptop or a desktop, and appear 15 minutes earlier from the scheduled time to test your camera and microphone functionalities.
- You don’t need to download an app, StreamYard works in your mobile browser. For Android, we recommend the Chrome browser. For iOS, only Safari will work.
- NOTE: iOS only has video on version 12.2+. Older versions are audio-only. For the best possible experience, we recommend that you join on a laptop/desktop.
- Chat session lasts for 30 minutes up to an hour, and you it is highly recommended for you to invite up to TWO (2) fans to join us on-screen. This is in line with our effort to connect you with potential readers. Your current readers sharing their experience reading your book will authentically serve as an endorsement for your book.

Great experience. Will use again! — Brian C. Dobbs, Author of Uniquely Called.
It was the best interview I’ve done. You made it so relaxing and comfortable, it was unlike any other I have done. I get nervous easily, but you made it very relaxing. You do an amazing job at it! Making someone like me feel comfortable is not an easy task, and you did it very well and you didn’t even have to try. You are a natural. Thank you. – Robert Starnes
