WHY  EDC EBLASTS ARE DIFFERENT!
EDC Creations has one of the largest databases of readers, bookclubs, indie bookstore owners and librarians in the publishing industry. Our database has 165,000+ readers and growing!  E-mail marketing is one on the most profitable ways to expand your web presence and to announce your book, service, event or company. The EDC Creations "My Book is Out" eBlasts are incredible, email marketing campaigns used to market products and services to a multicultural group of consumers around the globe. Our eBlasts are promoted on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and syndicated by RSS feeds.

My Book is Out eBlasts are electronic mailings, sent to our mailing list of 165,000+ readers filled with your voice and your message. We offer personalized eblasts which include beautiful graphics, audio/video coverage, written interviews and book excerpts, as well as a "call to action" such as a link to your bookseller or directions to your website. Email marketing is one of the most cost-effective and powerful marketing tools available at EDC Creations!

EDC Email Open Rates - our open rate averages 76-81% of 165,000 readers. An eblast's open rate is the percentage of emails that the eblast readers actually open as opposed to simply deleting, without opening or previewing. Content is king! Your written, audio/visual material defines how enticing the eblast will be for readers to open and later share with others. Several variables define your success!  We make no gurantees, but we work hard to get you noticed. After the eblast, we promote the book on social media for one week.

EDC Link Click Throughs - our CT rate averages 71-79%. Click-through rates are important for evaluating eblast success. The CT rate is the percentage of readers that actually click through to the link or follow the call of actions provided in the eblast. We have a direct relationship with our readers and  we request that each reader share the newsletter with at least 10 other people in their network. Your job is to provide information or material that will stimulate this educated, impulse purchase. All clicks might not lead to a purchase, but they now have an interest!


We do not have a problem with adult content in a book, but we can not send out excerpts with graphic content! 
We do not have a problem with R-rated material on the actual Black Pearls website.  We do have a problem with X-rated material or soft porn. We do not represent books with illegal, abnormal sexual material or promotes extreme violence, abuse or lewd sex practices.  We will promote Erotica, Urban Lit, Street Lit and some Fantasy themed stories at Black Pearls Magazine and on BAN Radio Show, but we will not send out eblasts with over the top profanity or explicit content. We can offer a direct link to the author's website for more adult themed material. We provide ouur readers with "quality books and content" and we try to screen out material that does not meet the CAN-SPAM Act rules.

Book Marketing is an ongoing process! 
We do not in any way promise an overnight success!  We will go the distance to complete our tasks and to offer you guidance. Your personal plan should consist of you having a weekly schedule of how you will get your name in front of your audience too. We will create this fabulous campaign for you, but you have to step in front of your promotion and follow-up with your new fans! We will broaden your territory, but you have to claim it! 


Important Notice on Reporting
We do not have any way to guarantee or track actual book sales. We can guarantee that your literary landscape and Google rankings will be increased by 100%!  We can track results of readership and responses. You will be sent a links to the items you can share with your network. But, we do not offer weekly reports. Our goal is to drive readers to you and the bookseller!  All of our communications will be handled via email. The only times we will speak on the phone, will be for coaching sessions.  All coaching sessions are by appointment only. 

Readers will know that your book is out and your message will be delivered to millions of potential readers over the course of the campaign. Our job is to publicize you, your author's platform and your book, and we are one of the best companies in the business at just that:  Spreading the Word about Great Books!
