Ever since announcing the availability of our iPhone application many of our authors have been asking how to get featured on it. To answer that question, it helps to know what the app does:
1) It features stories from our Outskirts Press blog under the “Blog” category in our app.
2) It features published authors under the “Authors” category in our app.
3) It features author book videos under the “Videos” category in our app.
4) It features our Twitter feed under the “Twitter” category in our app.
An Outskirts Press author can get featured in one or more of these categories. Sometimes it is the luck of the draw, but over the course of the coming weeks I will discuss some tips and tricks to increase your chances of getting featured on our app. I will also cover ways to guarantee it. Then, in the weeks following, I will discuss methods to increase your chances of getting exposure in our newsletter and in our Outskirts Press Direct bookstore. And even if you haven’t published with Outskirts Press, these concepts will hold value for any author of any book when it comes to book marketing.
Tomorrow we’ll discuss how to get featured in the “Blog” category of our iPhone app.
