Improving Your Margins

Sol Rosenberg (Copia Interactive, LLC), Seth Kaufman (Copia Interactive)
Sponsored Session
Location: Empire Level:

When Copia launched the first social eBook platform two years ago, it was the first eBookstore to allow shared annotations in the margins of eBooks. While users instantly grasp the functional advantages of sharing notes and highlights, there’s far more to the Copia app than efficient study. The limitless margins of an eBook offer great new ways to add new content around the book. And that new content allows booksellers and publishers to market books in exciting new ways.

Copia Merchandising & Marketing VP Seth Kaufman and Content VP Sol Rosenberg will demonstrate case studies of what various publishers have done over the last few years. They will illustrate how to improve your profit margins by using your eBooks margins, all to sell more content. They will present case studies of how to create publishing events around the content of any eBook with an advanced tool chest of “marginalia” which includes author’s cuts, author read-alongs, inside-the-margin contests, sweepstakes and crowd-sourced content building, among others.
