Publicity Rules!

Date: Thursday, June 16, 2016
Time: 1:00–4:30 PM
Location: Loews Philadelphia Hotel

Organizers: AAUP Marketing Committee (Chair: Martyn Beeny, Marketing and Sales Manager, University of Nebraska Press)

Publicity’s centrality to the modern marketing department means that it can affect many other aspects of a university press. Publicists have been known to acquire books, act as sales reps, sell books directly to consumers, and much more. Publicity is no longer simply about getting reviews and media attention for books and authors. And, scholarly books require just as much effort as trade titles. But not all presses have equal size publicity departments or even a publicist. In this interactive workshop, participants  will explore how modern publicity can be conducted and how the results can reach beyond the boundaries of the marketing department. We’ll spend our time seeking ideas, thinking about new ways in which publicity can be gained and used, and finding answers to the problems we all encounter in relation to publicity on a daily basis.

Registration details: The registration fee is $200 for AAUP Members and Librarians, $225 for non-member nonprofits, and $250 for non-members.

Registration Promotions

Attendance at the AAUP Annual Meeting is important both for career and community building. Those who attend go home with new ideas, issues to ponder, and the awareness that they are part of a large and supportive community. While we strive to keep registration fees and expenses low, we recognize that meeting attendance is not easily accessible to all.

To help, AAUP is offering a number of registration promotions to ensure that meeting attendees represent our members' diversity—in size, experience, and background.

The program will also include a brief overview of double-entry bookkeeping to provide context for managers who have little or no accounting background and feature discussion of accounting practices that are, if not unique to, then at least uncommon outside of publishing (including royalties and commissions; rights and permissions; and sales revenue that can include inventory, POD editions, and ebooks).
