Greetings, pr_pro. You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe.

Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: http://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post.

You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion.

Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here and can be rigorous.

Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. That includes sharing both positive and negative experiences/interactions they've had with you or your service. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

Any and all disputes between you and your clients should be handled off-site.

Thanks,
Becca

Note that this welcome does not constitute an endorsement or vetting of a service by KBoards. Members should do due diligence when considering using a service.

Vendor threads are permitted in the Writers' Cafe not only as a form of advertising that benefits vendors but also to provide one location where reviews of vendors can be concentrated and more easily brought to the attention of the whole community. For this reason, we make a reasonable attempt to maintain threads even for vendors with whom multiple customers report negative experiences.

Hmm, sounds too good to be true. :eek:

It should be no problem for you to post a few good examples of articles published. :-*

Press releases are not effective. Unless, maybe someone sold a gazillion copies of their last book--in which case the release would be pretty much redundant. Or they've written some juicy, salacious story about a well known public figure that everyone would would p*ss their pants when they read about it. Otherwise, Joe Schmoe author may as well as set their money on fire and watch it burn.

It's my understanding that most press releases are never even read.

ETA. The purpose here is not to take a stab at the OP. This is to protect the uniformed that read this forum.

You're not totally correct about your assertion. Though I understanding you're talking from personal experience, it's not the same for everyone. I've helped a lot of new and old authors gain online visibility for their works via press release writing and distribution.

With that said, I'd like to say crappy, rambling press releases are dead. So are press releases that sound like free advertisements for your book. However, well-written releases that share information quickly with readers, and explain why they should read the book, are very much alive. They're one of the most important elements in your publicity campaign. A lot of authors are still investing in press releases.

I'll leave you with this quote from Bill Gates - "If I was down to my las dollar, I would spend it on public relations."

Is this an opinion, or do you have case studies with reach, click-through rates, tracking links, A/B tests, or other measurable data that demonstrate it?

(I've done all that out in the real world for my employer which unfortunately puts it under NDA, but I can share my opinion based on the results and it's basically what ImaWriter says. Press releases, even well-done ones, offer no significant value, and often no measurable value. But I'm open to reconsidering my opinion based on data to the contrary.)

I've had a little success with press releases - from reputable sources - for non-fiction books.

The book noted in this thread has one review and a Kindle ranking of 800K.

Your millage may vary.
