BookWise Publishing experienced a very exciting 2022 with 15 new authors and 6 repeating authors with series. In addition to adding another 25 self-published books to our list, we produced 6 more audiobooks and added even more websites for our authors.
Just FYI, our audiobooks are recorded by one of the finest sound engineers (who also is an amazing composer and musician) in the world, Ken Kruckenberg of Sonic Pathways. He has streamlined the process so carefully that BookWise is able to produce them for less than half of what the "world" is charging.
We continue to explore new ways to market all types of books.
Having owned and operated a full-service advertising agency, Chrisco Media Services, since 1985, I've produced all types of advertising. But advertising is not marketing. It is an entirely different animal. I and my authors have been on an adventure to master social media and all of the many new online marketing tools to sell books, including building email lists and finding ways to network and collaborate with other authors to combine efforts for greater reach.
The massive value of having a book/author website, creating audio and video podcasts, as well as video trailers (which I have done for years with advertising clients and always touted), cannot be stressed enough.
Having moved past the doom and gloom of Covid, we are on the path to a new outlook and attitude in 2023.
