Become an Author
ClydeBank Media Contributors are authors. You don’t have to be a great writer to be a great author. Our contributors work with “compiling writers” to put your book together using your words and your voice. Our production process is fast, easy, and effective, culminating with the distribution of your book throughout multiple global distribution channels, backed by an aggressive, multifaceted marketing campaign.
In today’s crowded information marketplace, there is no substitute for working with professionals, and, as many experienced authors will tell you, there are no shortcuts to quality. There are many people in the world who have a book inside them—it’s the process of getting all of those words on paper that’s the problem. That’s where ClydeBank Media comes in. We want to share the book you have inside you.
WHY WORK WITH US?
1. Spread your Influence
The ClydeBank Media brand is by professionals for professionals. We respect and value your time and contribution, and all of our contributors have the peace of mind that comes with partnering with like-minded individuals who respect your name and reputation as if it were their own. Throughout the project, you will be working directly with professional writers, editors, and designers who have a proven track record of creating bestselling titles.
ClydeBank Media is an established brand with credibility and ever-growing magnetism. Our relationships with our contributors result in mutually beneficial agreements. Contributors gain a professional asset in the form of a prominent credit on a published work, and ClydeBank Media continues its tradition of providing accurate and up-to-date information for its readers.
2. Work with Professionals
Spread your influence with our comprehensive and sophisticated global distribution network. Through your ClydeBank Media title, your name is placed in front of a global audience backed by a leading, trusted brand. This can be leveraged into a variety of new opportunities for your personal brand and your company.
A published title is better than any business card and can build tremendous amounts of influence within an industry. Partnering with ClydeBank Media means signing on with a professional team that works hard to ensure your experience receives the recognition it deserves.
3. Create Passive Income
In addition to the resume-friendly author credit, ClydeBank Media contributors receive a passive income stream in the form of quarterly royalty payments from the sale of their title.
Aside from your role in the ongoing promotion of your title, ClydeBank Media handles everything from retail and wholesale distribution to global marketing and advertising campaigns.
ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS WITH US
“I want to produce a passive income stream through royalty payments from book sales.”
ClydeBank Media pays contributors industry-standard royalties from book sales across all formats on a quarterly basis.
“I want to use my book to help establish myself as a thought leader in my industry or career field.”
We distribute our titles through a wide-reaching network with placement in several different international markets. These markets include placements that range from higher education to independent bookstores and everything in between.
“I want to use my book to help grow my business.”
A book is the best business card there is. What better way to provide initial value to your audience and increase their awareness than through a helpful and information-packed book?
“I want my book to augment my resume and help me with career advancement opportunities.”
Writing a book takes mastery of concepts, dedication, passion, strong organizational skills, and attention to detail. This makes a published book an excellent addition to any resume and can make the difference between a job offer and a rejection letter in a competitive field.
