AuthorZilla Puts Indie Authors on Top, Introduces Co-investing Approach in ePublishing

Gurgaon, India (PressExposure) June 21, 2012 -- Marketo, the fastest-growing provider of Revenue Performance Management (RPM) solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the CRM Lead Management Report.*

"We see our position in the Leaders quadrant by Gartner as confirmation of our ability to help companies large and small grow revenue faster - which in turn has made us the fastest-growing company in our market," said Phil Fernandez, president and CEO of Marketo. "Marketo's powerful, easy-to-use technology, quickly delivers value - more win-ready leads and sales opportunities - and offers deep analytics to identify the best performing marketing campaigns. Our market leadership is fueled by continual innovation, such as our newest product, Marketo Social Marketing - the first truly integrated social campaign applications that allow marketers to exploit the power of social channels across any and all marketing programs. And then, because they are integrated with into a reporting platform, those campaigns are improved and scaled up faster than the competition."

Gartner's evaluation criteria for the Magic Quadrant for CRM Lead Management included market responsiveness, overall viability, customer experience and an evaluation of the vendors' products and services, among other criteria.

According to the report, "The success and the impact of lead management is increasing as lead management technologies mature and organizations gain expertise in managing multichannel lead processes. More than 67% of respondents identified lead management as having a critical or major impact on achieving sales and revenue objectives, and more than 69% were completely satisfied with their vendor and with application functionality."

Marketo's continued innovation was underscored last month when the company introduced Marketo Social Marketing, a suite of powerful and easy-to-use products to make every marketing campaign inherently social. The suite's first offerings, Marketo Social Boost and Marketo Social Promotions, include a new collection of social campaign applications such as video sharing, voting, sweepstakes and referrals. The products are tightly integrated with the company's award-winning marketing automation platform, so marketers can add a word-of-mouth marketing lift to every campaign, track the impact of individuals' sharing through social channels, and nurture relationships with the most influential customers.

No other marketing automation or social media marketing product offers this degree of synergy between social campaigns and traditional digital and offline marketing activities.

Gartner does not endorse any vendor, pGlobal eBook Publisher, AuthorZilla launches new epublishing plan for indie authors.

Global publisher AuthorZilla announces its new publishing plan, "You Succeed, We Succeed" for indie authors. Now indie authors just need to submit their manuscript, AuthorZilla will take responsibility to make their eBooks a success.

Unlike many other e-publishing service providers, where they charge indie authors for providing their services as plain vendors, AuthorZilla partners with indie authors who wish to self publish and co-invests with them in producing the eBook, distributing it, and taking the eBook to success through rigorous marketing & promotion efforts.

"This is the first time eBook publishing is being done in the true sense. Authors write while AuthorZilla takes the responsibility to make their creation a success. Till now, every e-publishing company has positioned itself as a vendor/supplier of services to an indie author who goes to publish ebook. They were never investing along with author. We have changed the game, and for the first time we stand with the author to make her eBook a success," said Saurabh Thakur, CEO of AuthorZilla.

AuthorZilla has a strong experience in providing ebook publishing services to authors and publishers. With this new plan, they have created a disruption in e-publishing space.

Authors just need to provide AuthorZilla the manuscript (MS Word) file of the proposed eBook, and AuthorZilla takes care of everything end-to-end. AuthorZilla publishes their eBook, distribute it, market it, do billing and sales management etc. Author just needs to invest $999, and AuthorZilla will co-invest $1700 to make this a successful project.

They no longer need to worry about technicalities of latest tools/technologies required for ebook production & distribution and marketing," said Saurabh.

"AuthorZilla will change the industry dynamics in coming days. We have focused immensely on cost and quality. Every service can be bought individually, or as packaged plans.
