Online (Google+) Hangout - Digital Book Promotion with Josh Cohen of Ganxy

  • May 15, 2013 · 12:00 PM

Today for our Google+ online lunchtime hangout we will be talking with Josh Cohen of about book promotion for indie authors.

Amazon is a great distribution channel for authors but it has two drawbacks: it doesn't have full-featured book promotion tools, and doesn't give authors information on who buys our books. is a New York startup focused on ebook sales and promotion that gives authors a great set of tools for promoting and selling books both online and in-person.

With Ganxy you can create digital showcases for your books, include previews, video, and links to all your online distributors, and sell directly through Ganxy. You can embed the showcases on websites, blog posts, Facebook pages, and even print them out on postcards to take to events. While at events you can set up multiple download codes for attendees and Ganxy will track all your sales, giving you not only analytics but the means to contact buyers afterward.

    Really great to know of Ganxy and what they offer for authors of ebooks. Things are moving fast to a whole new way of going about it I gather from hearing the experience that Anne had to offer. Both Josh and Anne gave valued experience to those of us almost to the start line. Thank you. Humorous that with this step out to the new frontier, there were some tech issues reminding us that that's part of it all-challenges.
