REDEFINING DIGITAL PUBLISHING
We are changing the paradigm of digital publishing by empowering authors, independent publishers, media companies and studios to thrive and profit in this quickly evolving industry. PDP places the power and prosperity back into the hands of content creators and IP holders-allowing for an open exchange between producers and distributors and a broad selection of content for our customers. PDP was founded with the goal to be the leading innovative force in a field we know well and love deeply; digital publishing.
OUR FOUR OBJECTIVES:
The publishing game begins and ends with great content. We carefully source and license exceptional content from the best creators in the world. This ensures consumers have access to a wide selection of new and classic content. To appropriately reward the content creators and owners of the content (stories and brands that consumers crave and cherish) we deliver the best revenue share in the industry. Authors, agents and IP holders should ask this simple question, “What percentage of the retail price do I receive?” If the answer isn’t over 50%, contact us. See our CEO’s blog on this topic here.
We deliver a full suite of end-to-end marketing programs that get results. The mobilization of PDP’s push and pull marketing initiatives promise to generate sales in today’s fluid consumer markets. “Push” marketing begins with product positioning and extends to channel marketing packages and detailed price promotion strategies. “Pull” marketing utilizes author branding and the cultivation of existing fan bases. The strategy then extends to the organic assimilation of new audiences through traditional programs and a social marketing toolbox that connects the consumer and the brands they want.
We have built a library of our own Intellectual Property in the form of original content and enabling technologies. As PDP builds value for our partners, we are also building long-term enterprise value. Our defensible market position is enhanced by the library of content that we own or license and the technologies we have developed to distribute content as well as create or develop the content itself.
We ensure global distribution through hundreds of endpoints. Today’s eBook distribution matrix is complex and fragmented. We navigate this new frontier to ensure “no consumer (reader) is left behind”. We guarantee presence and sales throughout top-tier retailers (the usual suspects) as well as key international players, regional eBook store chains, distributors serving libraries and a coterie of emerging social reader applications. Each of these outlets is important to reach ensuring the widest consumer audience possible in the fluctuating eBook marketplace.
