Libraries are home to countless booklovers who are all potential consumers. When your work is made available in a place filled with avid readers, there’s a higher chance of it to be picked up and read. Marketing your book in a library is just as powerful and effective as promoting it in other media platforms. In libraries, you already have a market that’s willing to invest their time in reading which drastically saves up a lot of time and effort for your campaign. Libraries also specialize in promoting independent authors; frequently hosting events to highlight and feature new writers.
BookVenture has developed Library Pitch to make it easier for published authors to extend marketing exposure to libraries, with a tactical combination of print and digital ad on three publications well-known to librarians, a book display at the ALA Book Exhibit and an intensive pitch to public libraries across the country.
Note: The book should already be available in the market before the campaign is implemented. It should have a rating score of 4.2 or higher from at least 5 different reviews to become eligible for this service. If your book cannot meet the criteria, we cannot guarantee the library will buy a copy.
