April, 2014 Electronic Magazine – Marketing Tuesday, May 20 2014 

Your virtual tour can be as little as just increased interaction from a different address, at a given time. However, any tour (real or virtual) is what you make of it. Offering special discounts, individualized signings, goodies (stickers, book marks, art postcards, etc.) and/or even drawing for a free book, are add-ons that may easily be included.

Printed editions shouldn’t be left out of the “bonus bonanza” electronic editions may have. Add cross-reference (web address or code for scanning) in printed editions for a gateway to bonus electronic material.

If you are considering a digital edition – whether as sole edition/format, or an alternate – do be sure to take advantage of at least some of the additional features you can use in an electronic edition.

Top reasons to publish electronically by disk:

  1. Physical product to give to paying customers –  for something concrete “in hand”.

  2. Easily update customers by including update links, cloud access, and/or emailing customers with provided update contacts for ongoing, value added, bonuses.

December 2012 E-Zine (V11#12): Production Wednesday, Dec 19 2012 

Consider using an archival photo mounting sleeve to place an actual photograph within your book. Today’s options can be easy to use and self-adhesive. Dedication to a special individual? Give your book buyers a special keepsake by placing a real picture within their book. This can “upgrade” a book by placing the photo and sleeve over a printed photo. Just one of many things that can go into producing a deluxe or keepsake edition. A lower lifetime idea would be to place on the book cover.

Publishing electronically also opens up a new world of possibilities! No longer do you have to produce a single manuscript and call it done. Is there a format that supports video great, another that does links better and a third you love, but only supports formatting like bold, italics, and underline? Gregath can tackle the job of producing manuscripts tailored to each electronic format for you, or provide support to allow you to confidently to it yourself.
