It can be treated as a place to create awareness of one's work while, at the same time, the site allows the author to network with like-minded individuals. No cost video training is provided to members at the site. The segmented groups allow for the exchange of book marketing ideas, while the discussion forums can serve as an educational resource for those who may have a need to increase their own knowledge in regards to creating marketing and publicity plans that produce real results. All of this can be integrated with social networking technologies. The site can serve as a centralized hub for book marketing activity, education and networking."
