Marketing Services


Advertising in a high-profile national publication is a great way to announce your book to the world. However, it is prohibitively expensive for an individual author to design and purchase an ad in most national publications. Through the iUniverse Advertising program, you get access to a variety of affordable and convenient opportunities to promote your book.

Book Video Premiere

Cinemas around the country pull in 70 percent of Americans at least once a year making a theater screen a unique opportunity to catch viewers in a distraction-free environment. Give audiences a sneak peek of your book with a 30-second trailer.

Gift Guide Advertising

Give your book ad placement in seasonal buying guides in two publications: the Los Angeles Times, a recipient of 43 Pulitzer Prize awards and one of the most widely distributed newspapers in the country, and BookPage, a monthly book selection guide that has been running for over 25 years.

New York Times Media Marketing

Reaching as many as 1.7 million readers per week, the New York Times Sunday Book Review is considered the most prestigious book review source in the United States.
