Electronic Press Kit
A lot of marketing has moved online, but author press kits still matter. Press kits are traditionally thought of as physical tools, but they are effective digitally as well. In fact, a digital press kit can be used to facilitate your marketing efforts in online venues as well as the brick-and-mortar realm.
An electronic press kit is essentially a collection of digital documents (most commonly PDF files) which are packaged together and made available to download on your website and to send out via email. Empire Publishing will create an eye-catching Electronic Press Kit for you. This kit makes it easier for media outlets to gather quickly and efficiently information about your book and you as an author. Press kits are an excellent way to gain interest in your book and stand out above other authors vying for book sales. Purchase this kit and Empire will send you an email requesting what is needed to create your Press Kit.
