Press Release: BookBaby Announces 2017 Self-Publishing Survey — The Largest Study Of Indie Book Marketing And Promotion
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — November 16, 2016 — BookBaby today announced the launch of the 2017 Self-Publishing Survey—a comprehensive study focused on revealing the most successful book marketing and promotion strategies. The company has partnered with 15 leading self-publishing providers to ask published and aspiring authors to share their marketplace experiences and opinions.
“The self-publishing community is gigantic and getting bigger every day,” said BookBaby President Steven Spatz. “And yet we know very little about how, or even why some indie authors are getting discovered by readers. Is it great marketing? Is it pure luck? Or something else altogether?”
“There’s never been a better time to partner up with other companies and reach out to self-published authors around the globe to ask: What's working? And then to share that information with the entire community.”
The 2017 Self-Publishing Survey covers a number of publishing topics including:
- Authors’ writing backgrounds
- Promotional and marketing strategies
- Thoughts on the current state of self-publishing
- Predictions on where the industry is headed
Over one million authors have been invited to participate in what is the largest-known survey pool in self-publishing history. Every author that participates gains access to giveaways and special offers, including a chance to win a Complete Self-Publishing Package.
BookBaby’s 2017 Survey Partners include:
- About Freelance Writing
- Book Lemur
- Book Riot
- Carolyn Howard Johnson
- Funds for Writers
- Indie Reader
- Next Big Writer
- Readers Favorite
- Rochelle Carter
- Smith Publicity
- Story Cartel
- Training Authors
- Winning Writers
- Women On Writing

The survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and the resulting data will be available early next year. Authors interested in participating in the 2017 Self-Publishing Survey can start here: www.bookbaby.com/survey.
