A Very Effective Marketing Tool – Co-Branded Books

There are several ways in which your company can positively impact your business and strengthen customer relationships. One important and oft overlooked way is to find a book relevant to your product offering. Working with its author/publisher you can make it your own by adding your brand and marketing message to it.

Why co-brand a book?

Anyone can have their logo printed on a T-shirt, pen, mug or mouse mat, but a book is unique. It contains knowledge, which you as the co-brander are providing and empowering your customers with. Co-branding provides you with a cost-effective way of providing your customers with a uniquely styled and very appropriate gift. Other terms used for this are custom publishing, content marketing, branded content, co-promotion, brand partnership, brand alliance, etc. 

Non-fiction, paperback books are perhaps among the most cost effective and long lasting premium products you can use to building your business. They are generally kept for long periods of time and carry a higher perceived value than many other less personal products. People rarely throw out a book – particularly if its content is relevant to them.

The custom published book is one of today’s most effective business strategies in reaching targeted groups of people with information relevant to their needs, interests, and lifestyles.  The strength of a book’s inherent permanence can maximize your marketing dollars with a message that endures.

All of our books are available for co-branding, which means that the entire cover design (or back cover) can be changed to match your corporate identity. Alternatively you may wish to add just your logo to the front cover or you may work out a deal where the entire contents allude to your product or service offering.

Our current offerings of books for co-branding (publisher inquiries also welcome) includes:
