First Edition Design Publishing Received First Place Honors In Study of eBook and POD Publishers
World’s largest eBook distributor racked up highest marks in every category including customer satisfaction, royalty rates, technical ability, services and overall recommendation.
First Edition Design Publishing scored the highest in a comparative survey of ten top POD (Print On Demand) and eBook publishers. The independent study, using subjective and objective methods, analyzed: pricing, royalty pay-out rates, publisher’s websites, length of time in business, help available to authors, response time to inquiries, the ability to reach someone by phone, marketing services, customer base, turn-around time, file submission requirements, range of distribution, and other areas.
“News of the report came to us during the week of Book Expo America in New York,” said Tom Gahan, Marketing Director for First Edition Design Publishing. “The timing is curious. We’re not sure if the survey was done to coincide with Book Expo (America). Nonetheless, we’ve checked their findings. The facts are spot on.”
The study, posted on-line at www.publisherrank.com , was researched and compiled by the PMG Associates, an independent research firm.
First Edition Design Publishing’s CEO, Deborah E. Gordon said in response to the news of the publisherrank.com study, “To provide our clients with the best service possible. To offer choices, listen to our client’s needs, and offer solutions that work–that is the principle the company was founded on and it is something we take very seriously. I believe that is what keeps us at the forefront of the game. I am very proud to say that our entire organization takes those words to heart and acts upon them accordingly.”
