Library Gateway Plus

$6,499.00

This host of marketing packages highlights the strategic partnership between Xlibris and Baker & Taylor, the world's largest distributor of books and multimedia products. It gives authors the chance not only to promote their books, but to also put them in front of major decision makers in the industry. Schools, libraries, retailers, independent booksellers, and other publishing gateways trust Baker & Taylor, and buy their books—physical and electronic—from them.

These advertising channels and campaigns are made accessible to authors through the Xlibris Retail Marketing Platforms packages:

Baker & Taylor Microsite (Emerging Voices) - This microsite was created by Baker & Taylor to address the need for a trusted source for key decision makers who are always on the lookout for new titles. Books will be featured for two weeks on the front page of the microsite then go to other pages on the site under their corresponding categories. They stay on the site for a total of three months.

Forecast Catalogue - The most widely circulated monthly publication of Baker & Taylor, Forecast, boasts a subscriber base of 45,000 librarians and 15,000 retailers. It primarily promotes new and forthcoming adult hardcover, trade and mass-market paperback, and spoken-word audio titles. This magazine enables publishers to reach out to bookstore owners, libraries, retailers and wholesalers, and helps them get to know future bestsellers and other noteworthy titles so they can make well-informed buying decisions. Your title information will be featured on a separate catalogue-style ad mailed with Forecast Magazine along with a select group of Author Solutions (Xlibris' parent company) authors.

Library Journal - Founded in 1876, this subscription-based trade publication releases 20 issues annually. It has 12,500 active subscribers with an estimated circulation of 62,000. Reaching library directors, administrators, and staff in public, academic, and special libraries, this is dubbed as the single most comprehensive publication for librarians, with groundbreaking features and analytical news reports covering technology, management, policy, and other professional concerns. Its hefty review sections evaluate more than 8,000 books annually.

Reel Time on Baker & Taylor - Authors are given the chance to promote their books on a designated area on the Baker & Taylor website through 15-90-second animated presentations or videos.

Please note that you need to provide an existing Xlibris-produced Book Video (with or without Voice Over) for this service. This is a pre-requisite for Reel Time placement.
