INTRODUCTION Having successfully translated your ideas into a published book, or currently and passionately working with the single aim of accomplishing just that, as a first time author or simply adding another title; is enough a fact of your deep and well coordinated desire to ultimately influence the entire human race for the better. At Store51 Contents Initiative, we understand the essence of imparting an idea with a life, which is to passably communicate growth and development through the expressed words and related actions, with general applications or affecting only specific group of people or issues. All efforts so far in producing your book are evidently not mere fascinations, but much more of a response to the divine call going out to us all, to reach out to others one way or the other. The call in question is also a further proof that there is a book in the form of a sparkling idea in each one of us. We only need to give it the life it deserves. We consider this as what you are already doing working to see your book out there all over the world. Giving an idea a life is not an undertaking without identifiable pains. Notwithstanding, it is only profound enthusiasm just as you have demonstrated so far that can, in actual fact, dissolve these pains with brilliant effectiveness. And, In this regard, we conclude you are worth a great deal of appreciations. In addition, we want to congratulate you with absolute sincerity to have come this length with your book project. The fundamental truth is that we have seen a lot of similar attempts among potential and even published authors, both in the past and this passing moment, started but not completed, not even close to the requirements to have a successful book out there in the immediate neighborhood. This prevalence in the book making community makes it seem almost normal to start and not possible finish any book project. As demanding as writing your great book must have been, so are the labors required to reach those you have it in mind for with satisfactory results. The latter requirement is not only demanding, it is as well wearisome. Not only time consuming, it is equally money consuming. If

you had ever seen authors going around bookstores to drop their books, that is if at all you have not done so yourself, you will immediately understand, and be able to explain it to anyone else, how enormously frustrating it could really be getting books sold in this part of the world, even with the slightest success. The cost of printing always demands deliberate carefulness in the company of exhaustive calculations, particularly when working within a tight budget. As unfortunately as it may sound, 4

almost all self published authors, and even publishing houses, work within very tight budgets at all time. This is a simple wisdom, more especially when one cannot be utterly sure of the volume of sales to expect no matter how strategic and sophisticated the marketing campaign is going to be. The aforementioned situation has made it not easy for a self published author to simply sit and look, while having his printed materials equally lying somewhere in the store room doing nothing, considering the investment and the possible profit they could have made from getting them sold. A deeper feel of this circumstance will no doubt reveal something really wrong that has to be corrected. It is not about how amazing the work or the author is, it is all about having an impactful and a successful book in the market with global reach. Getting things done through the traditional Publishing House has not really helped many authors, in actual fact; the entire process has become increasingly daunting. Something many authors have abandoned, preferring going all alone to help their book get out there through self publishing, and ready to accommodate the enormous financial implications along with the uncertain marketing. But good ideas and books like yours are meant for the entire world and not for the few well wishers who simply want to buy your book to encourage, and not because they really see the relevance of doing so. And, on the other hand, where one is actually finding it so difficult to effectively reach even the just few around, how much more demanding it is to connect with the entire globe. This is a conundrum the Store51 Contents Initiative has come to resolve, particularly with the Nigerian authors like you.

STORE51CONTENTS

One fact we should also quickly emphasis here is5 that having globally successful books is not only about having outstanding marketing and sales strategies in place; obviously, these are part of the entire processes, but we should not as well forget that good marketing can sell bad product just only once. Good product with bad marketing cannot also go far no matter how relevant it could be to the target users. With a good number of gained experiences working with authors and publishers from all part of the world, we can authoritatively tell you that the global success of your book fundamentally involves six solid and superior processes, consisting of Publishing, Marketing, Sales, Payments, Support, and Participation. These aforementioned processes, as they affect the book making industry at the global level have been the core subjects of our researches for many years. The powerful and unique plans and strategies derived from these researches to get things really done are what have accordingly culminated into the Store51 Contents Initiative. More importantly, these derivations are alive and right here to benefit your true yearnings to impart the world with your message. The Store51 Contents Initiative is engineered from group up to specifically accomplish six established intentions in collaboration with you as an able author. These objectives are; 

To redefine and elevate your book with the sole intention of making it more relevant and indispensible to your target readers from all part of the world.

To make your book forever available and accessible for purchase to these target readers using the best of contemporary Internet and Web Technologies.

To guarantee and ensure satisfactory patronage of your book from all over the world through innovative, highly effective and efficient online marketing & sales strategies.

To accomplish the aforementioned objectives without the usual high cost of fulfillment for you to put up with as a self publishing author.

To ensure that both you and your readers are sufficiently protected and pleased, both in the short and the long term.

To facilitate global participation among your readers, just as much as you and other authors, through online Discussions, Questions & Answers System, Opinion Polls, Interviews Sessions, along with other related events.

With the Initiative, having a new publication to push to the entire globe with speed, or something already in the marketplace but requires contents re-engineering makes not much of difference, the solution is applicable to both. Right from the publishing stage to the associated 6

participation; all you will get are risk free steps specifically designed to deliver rewarding experiences to all stakeholders. The Store51 Contents Initiative offers every author a global platform for publishing, marketing, sales, payment, support, and constructive participation among the target readers. The Initiative considers specific requirements or solutions in the following categories of publications; 

Journals & Magazines

Newsletters & Newspapers

Books & Booklets

Brochure & Product/Services Information

Catalogues & Pricelist

Documentations & Manuals

Reports & Whitepapers

Business Plans & Strategies

Personal & Corporate Identities

Creative marketing & Sales Materials

It is time to give your impressive idea the life it so deserves, it will be too bad someone else did just that immediately before you step out to fulfill the calling. Let’s get started right away!

STORE51CONTENTS 7 UNDERSTANDING THE FEATURES

For reasons associated with limited space, we can only state in brief the core features of the Store51 Contents Initiative here. Details of the features are accessible through other publications, and are made available and accessible after necessary subscription. We look forward to receiving any request for further information in respect of the features stated; we will be willing to also answer any other related requirement relating to issues not specifically stated below.

Publishing: The first on the list of our intention with the Store51 Contents Initiative is “to understand and elevate your book with the sole intention of making it more relevant and indispensible to target readers from all part of the world”. We want to accomplish this through publishing feature. The publishing process includes; 

Ideation: The Ideation process is particularly designed for books at the idea stage, and generally for already published materials requiring concept re-engineering. As much as the author is the only one to make the decision to go with the process after our professional advice, it is worth noting that the process will substantially help in accomplishing greater lucidity and effectiveness of the idea you want to get out to the world.

Ideation covers areas like idea sourcing, idea research, idea application, idea development, and idea advancement. Issues relating to the relevance of your book considering the target readers are well established and perfected.

Many successful international authors do have the ideation process as the most fundamental process they start and or go through with each of their materials. Some even recognize the process as the primary key to the success of their books.

You may not ignore this stage; it is the point where everything gets started from.

Authoring: If you had the right idea but not the time to crystallize this idea in the form of a book, memoir, auto-biography, or in whatever form of publications you want to have it, then, we can equally help you accomplish simply that, and in no time.

8 With authoring, we work with you either as a co-author or a ghost writer. You provide the idea you want to make available to the entire world through series of interviews and questionnaires to be conducted; then, we implement the authoring in your own style and expressions.

Proof Reading: One of the surest ways to fail with a book project is to publish the wrong, outdated, or incomplete ideas. This kind of mistake natural kills the aspiration even before the book gets to the shelf. Just like what the Ideation process does to get a book started, the Proof Reading process takes both an intensive and extensive depth into your already prepared materials with the aim of researching and crosschecking your facts and references against existing standards and available truth.

Proof Reading your materials, particularly by our associate experts in the field you are writing, will go all ways to fulfill the much desired impact you want to accomplish with the materials.

Copyediting: Even if there were accurate ideas, it is unfortunate it is not enough to command the kind of respect required to make your book internationally successful. Almost everybody can imagine how heartbreaking having good ideas wrapped up in bad language could be. No book or publication is 100% accurate with language; however, common


STORE51CONTENTS

give it a life!

typographical, lexical and grammatical errors could dissolve dazzling enthusiasm 9 sometimes.

In this regard, total and adequate attention will be paid to every single word and statement presented in your book, line by line, paragraph by paragraph, and chapter by chapter. What you will surely have at the end of the process is a professionally prepared material ready to make the entire world a better place to be with errors.



Settings: Getting your settings right is a proof you know your target readers to a considerable length. It is about presenting your ideas within the context of their tradition, religion, profession, and general make up among other considerations. To make your materials more internationally viable, there is a need to have it prepared within the context of the environment you want to reach outside your current location. The more reason we see some books having American version, Asian version, and European version just to mention but popular ones.

A good setting for your book makes it possible for your readers to easily identify with the idea since you are seeing things through their own eyes. The intention is to work with you in creating other versions of your materials for a true global reach.



Personalization: Your book can be effectively personalized to each buyer/reader. Personalization is not only a good marketing strategy; it equally helps in having your books accepted with a deeper sense of devotion. Contents Personalization is like writing an entire book just for one person. Personalization makes it possible for the readers to be personally addressed at strategic points within the contents by their names and even sometimes with their images. Personalization is great for children books and general motivational materials.

Customization: To give your book a further reach, we can adequately customize the material for people with special needs. A good example is to have a standard written book customized as an Audio Book for people with impaired sight or completely blind. Customized contents are getting popular and are in very high demand, particularly in the United States, Japan, and in Britain.

10 

Translations: Since the goal is to have your books on a global platform, there is absolutely no way we can avoid not having it rendered in other languages. This will help marketing, and further strengthened acceptance among your readers from other part of the globe.

Adaptation: You can equally have your book adapted for TV and stage drama, or for documentary and movie production.

Indexing: Indexing your book is a great endeavor to ease your reader particularly when in search of a given idea or statement within your book. Conducted research in this area shows there are people who even start reading right from the index section of a book. We will painstakingly take and include the entire index of your work at the concluding section of your book. The effort is an integral part of making good reader’s experience possible. More importantly, good reader’s experience is very instrumental to repeated and referred purchases.

Identification: Primarily for the purpose of distribution, we will secure the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) for your book immediately before it goes into the market. And if required, we will get it from the United States or Britain. ISBN from the just mentioned countries is mostly required for selling on sites like Amazon and the rest. Store51

Contents Initiative equally has her own11 numbering system being used at our Online Media Store.

Interior Layout: The interior layout of your book is a sublime source of drive, inspiring your readers to continue reading from chapter to chapter and page to page. The fact is that many authors do not realize the importance of having great layout for their equally great contents materials. With the Store51 Contents Initiative, we pay substantial effort to produce greatly inspiring layout for the interior part of your book just like we do with every other aspects of the Initiative.

Cover Design: Creating a world class back cover design is not only for marketing purposes, it equally gives the first impression. It is just natural that captivating cover design for your book will pull people back to pick it up, even if it is just to read the information at the back.

Funny as it may be, people tend to see the cover design even before the title of the book right in front. This is what we know very well with our researches in this regard. While the interior layout drives them to move from page to page, more than any other reason, it is the cover design that pulls them to pick the book up in the first place.

No matter what the subject of your material may be, we will ensure it is enveloped in great cover design with global appeal.

Legal Aspect: To merely include the copyright information on the inner part of the front cover is not enough a legal covering you need for yourself and your book. This is an aspect we do not take simply for the name. We will take the right step to secure proper copyright protection for you, so as to guarantee your absolute ownership of the work.

A STORE51 WEB LIMITED PROJECT

11


Distribution Format: The Distributions of your book will be in both electronic and hardcopy formats. Popular and standard eBook extensions like PDF (with FlippingBook Technologies) and related mobile format will be supported. The alternative hardcopy format will be available for purchase all over the world in soft cover, hardcover, and leather bound cover.

12

It is important to quickly note here that you do not have any financial obligation to fulfill in the production of your book in any of the aforementioned distribution format with the Store51 Contents Initiative. Not even a Kobo is required from you in this regard.

Contents Protection: To prevent content copying and piracy, the electronic version of your book will be secured using the finest contents security technologies. We understand this aspect as the usual fear of many authors considering e-publishing; however, also with our contents activation and buyers’ registration systems in place, the need to be worried is completely removed.

Marketing: We operate on the bases of what we belief. And what we belief is that marketing is all about targeting and fulfilling these targets. Our intention is to find the perfect target readers for your book, and then, promote the book within this target market with all available resources at our disposal. Doing this will permit us to accomplish our second objective, “to make your book forever available and accessible for purchase to well selected target readers using the best of contemporary Internet and Web Technologies”. To actually get this done, we will be implementing the following services as part of the Initiative; 

Market Analysis:


STORE51CONTENTS

give it a life!

Understanding the perfect market for your 13 book is like defining one’s destination before the journey gets started. Gone are those days when contents are sold hoping they will meet the need of some people. This “hope” idea has been responsible for many authors printing many copies of their books but has not been able to get them sold.

It is true meeting needs is the primary reason for publishing; however, it does not really fit into good design anymore not knowing exactly whose needs are being fulfilled. Our hard work in this regard will include adequate Market Sourcing and Market Research.

And, if your book were specifically developed for a not so popular group or interest, then, making the right step towards reaching this small group also starts with the aforementioned sourcing and research. We will leave no stone unturned in identifying your target readers along with every other relevant information that will facilitate reaching them through the best approach.

The ideation process is done along Market Analysis.

Competitive Positioning: Many a time with a properly conducted Market Analysis, there are a whole lot of discoveries of data and information that can and will strategically reposition the author and the book for greater exploits if well utilized. With the Store51 Contents Initiative, we will make every new discovery, particularly valuable to you and the book, available at no extra cost. We are going to do this with the sole intention of helping to you to properly and fully tap into the benefits and advantages of participating in the Initiative.

Package Development: With new discoveries as aforementioned, you are obviously set to update or upgrade your ideas and book. And, this is one other area the Initiative can and will play a good

Branding in it simplest explanation is about bring your uniqueness, and that of your book to participate in fulfilling our marketing objectives. Our target is to make your brand effective in driving in the passion for your book among your readers.



Price Administration: One of the fundamental considerations shaping the price of any product is the cost of production. With the Store51 Contents Initiative, and unlike the traditional ways of doing things in the industry, you have no worry about fulfilling the cost of producing any copy of your book, whether in the electronic or the hardcopy versions. We will get things done through the new Print on Demand Technologies.

However, you alone will need to decide the amount of profit you want to make on each book. Though, there are many things to put into reflection as well when making this decision; however, we will be willing to help you make a very good one at the end.
