Why review the content of your clients books in the internet. (TOP)

There are lots of reasons why it’s good to review the contents of your client's books in the internet; we would only highlight a few of them here. Summarily, reviewing the contents of your client's books online with us would,

  1. increase your online book distribution network (see shortly below)
  2. increase the local and international demands and sales of the book
  3. increase the international recognition of the publishers and author
  4. increase the quality and value of the services offered by your publishing house.
  5. make more of the target audience become aware of the book’s content and relevance.

The conventional way of promoting the sales and demand of printed books is through the use of widespread distribution networks, depositing copies of the books to bookshops and other book vendors, introducing the books directly to the target audience (individuals, groups, schools or librarian etc), advertising the books in media houses etc.- the sole aim of all these promotional activities is to increase the demands and sales of the published books by making the target audience become aware of its relevance.

These techniques have, until recently, now proving less effective and more difficult in effectively promoting book sales. This is obviously because more and more educated scholars now prefers to consult the internet instead of libraries and bookshops for all or most of their educational literatures & resources.

If you have gotten a website already that’s good but it’s not sufficient to effectively promote your published books in the internet. Putting a book’s information on just one website is like depositing copies of printed book in one bookshop. You already know that doing that will limit the sales of the book to only those that visits that book store.

When you publish a book’s title in your website alone, the book’s title is accessible only to people that visits your websites directly and people that specifically searches specifically for the book’s title or authors name in search engines. Books are effectively promoted online when lots of the target audience comes across the book. These can be obtained by reviewing the book in WebPages that are visited by lots of the book’s target audience.

Publishing information about the book in several websites increases your online book distribution networks and hence boosts the awareness of the target audience about the relevance of your published books. It’s not surprising these days to see big book publishing firms all over the world still depositing information about their books with agencies such as the Amazon and their likes- that is the online book distribution networks.

Publishing the review of your book’s content in UFUMES SCHOLARS is uniquely different from just making the book available online. At UFUMES SCHOLARS, our specialty is in the art of reviewing and promoting the sales of books in the internet and so, we employ effective strategies and means to enhance the access of target audience to the relevance and contents of your published books.

The access of target audience to the books review published with us is dependent on the numbers of people directed to our site by search engines and those that visited for the purpose of accessing our free online resources. We aim at optimizing these two factors towards ensuring that there is continuous access of a wide range of target audience to books review published with us.

Selling the published books in the internet (TOP)

Our policy as regards selling published book online is such that our integrity and name is protected.

Currently, we can only effect the sales of the reviewed book's hard copy for clients within Nigeria. For clients from other countries, we can only effect the online sales of your ebooks or direct prospective buyers to websites or book stores where the hard copies of the book can be purchased.

The intending buyer of the book pays in the stipulated amount to UFUMES' account, we'll then notify you of an imminent purchase.

We will send you information about the prospective buyer's location, mobile number and postal address; you will then send the intending buyer a copy of the purchased book. When the buyer has received the book, we will pay in the money into your account.

You are to add up the estimated cost of posting the book to someone in any part of Nigeria together with the original price of the book when declaring the price the book is worth online.

Sales of the electronic copy (eBook) of published books is somewhat similar to that of the hard copy, except that the transaction is much easier and flexible to carry out and any interested reader could purchase a copy regardless of his/her geographical location.

It requires that the author have an eBook copy of the printed work. We can help you to prepare an eBook copy of your printed work.

When a buyer requests for the purchase of your eBook, the buyers pays in the stipulated amount into UFUMES' account, we will then notify you about such intention and then send you the buyer's email address. All you need do now is to send your eBook to the intending buyer through your email. When the buyer confirms the reception of the eBook, we would forward the money to your account.

In both cases UFUMES plays the role of a trusted middle man, we kind of hold the money in trust for the buyer and release it to the author only after the buyer confirms the reception of the book. If the book author is unable to deliver the book to the buyer within three weeks (for the hard Copy) or one week( for the eBook), we will refund the money to buyer.

We will charge 15% of the total amount generated from each sales transacted through us as commission.

It is important that you respond fast when someone pays for your book so that it could be delivered to him or her in less than one or three weeks of payment.
