Driven by the belief that innovation is crucial for success in today’s publishing world, Gear Up Publishing uses the Print-to-Order (PTO) technology, which is the derivative and further progress of the Print-on-demand (POD). This technology enables immediate response to market needs, without questioning if production is reasonable when the requested amount is too high or too low. As book contents are permanently saved in a database, books can be printed in the requested quantity at anytime and will be rapidly available in worldwide bookshops and online stores, meeting the global market’s needs.
Worldwide Marketing of your work as printed book
One of our objectives is to promote your work on the international scene. We supply the leading book wholesalers and bookstores in the USA, in the UK and in the rest of the world. Most booksellers can obtain our books from the leading intermediate book traders. Books of Gear Up Publishing are therefore available on the worldwide market via more than 80,000 bookstores and 3,000 online stores.
We are happy to provide review copies in PDF format and information about our recently published titles to the media in view of publicity for our authors and our books.
Fair book pricing policy
As a matter of fact, digital printing of a single book involves more costs per unit than conventional print runs. Furthermore, the binding selling price determined by the publishing house depends on various other factors, such as the estimation of the marketable circulation, the specification and evaluation of the respective audiences, the variable production costs depending on the text volume, the project-related fixed costs, the anticipated marketing measures and the distribution channels and, more than anything, our experience.
As a means to optimize their potential readership, our authors are offered a unique and optional opportunity before their books’ release, to influence the book’s selling price on the market.
Our books are featured in all relevant book catalogues worldwide and promoted by leading international book distributors. When the publishing house has convinced the distributors about the worthiness of a book, it will be listed in catalogues. As a result, the entire book trade will be able to provide the book promptly to its customers. Besides, as experts in their field of study, our authors possess good knowledge of potential audiences for their books. We are therefore constantly developing marketing strategies to ensure the success of our author’s books within their audiences. Upon our authors’ request, we can send them their book covers in PDF format for marketing purposes. Banners for websites or posters’ design can for example be provided too.
