Welcome to all our newest investors!
We're so excited to welcome you to the BookSniffer family - and THANK YOU for helping us surpass 25% of our goal in just a few short weeks! As of this update, we're proud to have welcomed almost 120 investors to the BookSniffer family, and we've raised over $70,000.
Some interesting facts and data...
We're proud of our metrics. Here's a few interesting data points we wanted to highlight for you:
BookSniffer has nearly three million unique pages on its website.
For those of you who understand SEO, you know how valuable this is. As Google indexes our site over time, our SEO (search engine optimization) footprint grows - and our SEO success continues to bring users to our platform. We're already ranked on the first page for LOTS of book-related keywords, and the number of websites linking to BookSniffer continues to grow as well. Those "backlinks" contribute to our SEO authority... so if you've got a website and you're a BookSniffer investor, please link to our website!
We've exceeded 2,200 registered authors on our platform.
BookSniffer offers lots of free tools for authors to improve their marketing, including simple-to-use tools to build beautiful, graphical ads, free messaging to their own fans, and a beautiful author panging page, where they can link to all their social media profiles, books, cat videos, the works! We built these free tools because we want to help authors who are just starting out. Running an email list, learning how to make graphics in Photoshop, and building a website are three of the most time-consuming marketing tasks an author has. So far, over two thousand authors agree - that's useful stuff!
Over 10% of our registered authors have become either paying customers, investors, or both.
So far. We've found that the more time someone spends on the BookSniffer platform as an author, the more likely they are to become a customer, investor, or both.
We've begin serving perks to our first investors!
This past week, our first round of investors "closed", meaning we received their investment, and they received their stock. Now the fun begins! We're scheduling meetings with all our investors who are eligible for bonus ad credits. We'll be setting 30-minute sessions to show them around the BookSniffer platform and get their campaigns going. Our calendars are filling up quickly, so if you're an eligible investor, be sure to check your email for instructions on how to set up a Client Success Session with us!
Coming soon: Author Spotlights and our Self-Publishing Success Series!
We're now in the process of creating some really great content for both authors and readers, including in-depth interviews with BookSniffer authors and a step-by-step series exposing all the "secrets" we've learned over time on the road to our own publishing success. Look for that content soon on the BookSniffer websites!
That's all for now. Investors, please remember to spread the word! The sooner we meet our capital needs, the faster we can grow!
Wishing you the stuff of dreams,
Sean & the rest of Team BookSniffer
