We help authors and publishers to publicize themselves and their books with a package of marketing and media relations tools designed to get you publicity in the media and to reach readers and book buyers directly.
Established in 1977 as a directory of expert sources for the media, SOURCES.COM has evolved into a major Internet portal featuring experts, spokespersons, public speakers, authors, marketing professionals and opinion leaders covering more than 12,000 topic areas.
The Sources Bookshelf, a rapidly growing addition to the SOURCES site, already features more than 250 books. Each book has its own page, with a photo of the title, a detailed description of the content of the book, and complete ordering information. In addition to Author and Title indexes, the Sources Bookshelf includes a comprehensive Subject Index designed to guide searchers to books related to the keywords they enter into Google.
As a publisher or author, the benefits you receive as a SOURCES member include having your profile appear in the SOURCES directory of expert contacts and media spokespersons. SOURCES is used by thousands of reporters, editors, and writers who need to find quotable sources and reliable information for their articles or research. SOURCES.COM receives more than 600,000 page views every month.
SOURCES is an extremely powerful tool all on its own. SOURCES also complements and magnifies your other efforts to publicize yourself.
You are able to optimize your online marketing efforts with keywords that correspond to the search terms people use to find your books.
As a SOURCES member you can send out an unlimited number of publication announcements and news releases for FREE. Your releases appear on SOURCES.COM, go out to the media and on the Internet via RSS feed, and are indexed by all search engines and by news aggregator/RSS sites.
