Sample questions for Forum panelists include:

  • Why do you think your particular approach to digital marketing can help publishers better market their books? Have you gotten direct responses from your clients and concrete data proving that your approach works? In other words, can you prove that what your company offers can directly move copies and generate revenue?
  • Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have long been self-promotion tools for authors. How can authors take advantage of new avenues for promoting their brand and their books? Are there new digital tools on the horizon that you would recommend? How would you work directly with an author to help them take advantage of marketing themselves online and beyond?

Remote Access:
