Unlimited Publishing is not the only company to use revolutionary
new "print-on-demand" technologies to bring books to the worldwide
... So why should you choose UP instead of another service?
QUALITY is the first part of the answer. UP provides truly
professional book design and typesetting services prior to publication.
Unlike some competitors who use cookie-cutter "templates" or format
books overseas with technicians who may not be native speakers of
English, UP books are prepared for publication
by literate, quality oriented, professional designers.
As a result, the
appearance of UP books is significantly better.
Don't take our word for it; order a book of your choice (not the
company's) from a competitor, and from UP ... if ours isn't better,
return it for a full refund.
DISTRIBUTION is essential for any professional writer
or publisher who is serious about reaching a broad audience. Unlike
books from competitors who use only a single distributor, most UP
titles are distributed through Ingram and/or Baker & Taylor, the largest
book wholesalers in the world. As a result, UP
books are available to order from thousands of bookstores worldwide,
Our distribution network rivals those of major international publishing
PROMOTION is also crucial in order for books to sold, and read.
Meaningful promotion is included as part of our standard service. Many of UP's
competitors do not provide any meaningful promotion at all;
others charge up to $300 -- or more -- for comparable services.
UP provides effective initial promotion, at no extra cost.
COPYRIGHT PROTECTION is a serious concern for authors of books with
widespread appeal. Some of UP's competitors put electronic editions of
books on the Web, without adequate security. If readers
can make electronic copies of your book, and give them to others
without paying, you may be deprived of income you deserve.
SPEED is another reason why you should choose UP. If you follow our
standard submission guidelines, your book should be available to order
in printed form, from thousamds of major bookstores within four months.
Books from our competitors sometimes take six months to a year to reach the public.
If you are considering publishing elsewhere,
make sure that the production schedule is available in writing.
If not, you may be frustrated by extended production delays.
INTERNET EXPOSURE is provided with a webpage specifically
about each title, including "About the Book" and "About the Author"
info, as well as links for ordering copies from major booksellers.
Compare this system with others that require readers to search
through huge catalogs listing thousands -- or millions -- of other
ROYALTIES from UP are far in excess of industry norms.
UP shares 50% of net revenues from all retail book sales
equally with the author or publisher. Many of our competitors
do not. If you fulfill orders from readers directly from your own
web site, mailing list or at live events, your earnings can be
Crunch the numbers to determine how many sales are needed to make
a profit, compared with other systems for independent publishing.
PRICE is the final reason to choose UP. Our system is not
the "cheapest" way to publish a book, but if you compare the
total value of all the services
we provide with the combined cost of similar services from our
competitors, you will see that UP provides the best
combination of services and price, with no hidden charges.
Others may offer a lower initial rate, but quickly add charges with
a complicated menu of extras and add-ons that often make the
total cost higher... including charging the public (and you!)
inflated prices for book orders. UP's goal is to offer an integrated package
of professional services that delivers more value than
any other system available.
Go ahead: check out our competitors. Do your homework, do the
math. Compare the total cost of services, distribution, promotion,
production time, copyright protection ... and most importantly,
the quality of our books. Then choose UP.
