Booktrix > Every Trick in the Book

We are entering a time when every media form is subject to change and dislocation. Simply being the owner of content may not be enough to create long term value for the individual or the enterprise. As a publisher or author, you will always build value on your ability to identify and bring to life great products, but you must then expend a stronger and deeper effort to build lifetime relationships with readers and consumers. You will need to do this while simultaneously retaining your existing relationships with retailers and other types of existing customers.  No small challenge.
These are some of the reasons that Booktrix exists.

We use “every trick in the book” and we even create new tricks to help you take your books directly to your readers.We are a marketing company with a mission: our goal is to change the way the book business works and to help books and writing compete with other media — to win customers to the joys of reading books and book content in every way possible.

BookTrix provides publishers and authors with a complete array of tools and programs, from market analysis and product review to creative marketing, including flash animation (VidLit), direct-to-consumer campaigns, targeted advertising (that really works), email marketing, search engine marketing and optimization, web site design and implementation, email list management, blog building, online book tours and author appearance, e-commerce and store buildouts and management, sales review toolsets, and much more.

Simply put, BookTrix takes proven methods of marketing and direct selling to online venues, and by doing so, creates new long term revenue streams for publishers and authors.

We keep a few “old tricks” up our sleeves as well, so if you need help with traditional publishing tasks such as book production, editorial development, sales, marketing, distribution and logistics, we are ready to assist you.
