Introduction to Marketing in Publishing

 

Publishing has always given responsibility early, and whilst many people thrive on being ‘thrown in at the deep end’, the danger of making expensive mistakes is real. Even newcomers with marketing qualifications struggle to apply them in an industry where new product proliferates, resources are tight, and the remit often very broad. But help is at hand!

What’s covered?

  • The life cycle of a book, from proposal to launch: how do titles get contracted? How are print and price decisions made? Who gets what of the RRP?
  • Marketing channels and the supply chain

  • How marketing budgets are set
