8.  The value of being on the cutting edge of new technology.  You guessed it?  Yep, I wrote a blog about this one valuable feature of our product:  ePub3 technology.  This is important to the publisher because once your authors are trained properly about how to create ePub3 “calling cards,” they will also learn to tailor their messages to fit their genre or “brand.”  Big 5 publishers often forget that each author should be given the respect of being a brand unto him or her self.  In fact, this was one of the main reasons I switched from publishing through traditional publishers to building a platform to publish independently–with the most value in mind.  Therefore, all authors in our system are trained to understand they are promoting their creative work and their overall brand (their uniqueness).  They are not, in effect, corporate clones.  They are creative artists.
After your content is launched and promoted across your marketing channels, you’ll need to have marketing analytics in place that measure the success of your ebooks. For instance, having landing page analytics that give you insight into how many people downloaded your ebook, or show how many of those downloaders converted into opportunities and customers for your business.

The Embellisher eReader provides a ton of ready-made templates for its publishers and authors. It just rolled-out its Family Love Time Capsule template for families who want a private way to exchange their movies, photos and other media to each other. Authors will also enjoy the Forum inside the Embellisher because it allows for the formation of direct communications with their readers—right inside the eReader app. Book clubs, Author Q&A, and even live presentations from brick-and-mortar locations can be included in this dynamic social gathering place. Also, it’s private and secure, unlike Facebook or all the other proprietary social websites. Your membership includes this privacy and Author and Reader Forum for instant communications. This was of prime concern to author Jim Musgrave, as he understand that an indie author’s niche readers are of special importance to their integrity and to their feedback.
