"Highly recommended"

What do you like best?

A big shoutout to Guy and Lee of Publishizer for helping me navigate a successful campaign - they were always available for questions and direction, bringing me into their family of authors and offering a supportive community to get the most out of the campaign. When it came time to choose a publisher, they offered their expertise and insight and I'm extremely happy with the way everything was handled. Through their help and advice I was able to raise over $15,000 for my book and win a MAPS-sponsored literature contest!

What do you dislike?

They take a chunk of your earnings, of course, but then again, it wouldn't have been possible at all without them!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting my book out there for publishing! It's now been picked up by an independent publisher and has raised quite a bit of money already =]

"Great platform for first time writers"

What do you like best?

Lee and the team were great to work with but the platform also encourages you to do what a lot of writers aren't great at, which is selling themselves.

What do you dislike?

Clearer guidelines around what traditional publishers are looking for in new authors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to work for yourself - Publishizer is a great platform but doesn't do the selling for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Raising capital for marketing, professional art and printing.

What Fundraising solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Publishizer helped me get a publishing deal! "

What do you like best?

The service I received from Lee and the team was amazing. They guided me in creating my campaign and supported me along the journey, which was really intense!

As a result of using Publishizer I ran a pre-order campaign that raised nearly $10K and I secured a publishing deal with a reputable business book publisher.

What do you dislike?

Running a 30 day campaign is not for the feint hearted. You need to be as prepared as possible and ready to rock when you hit go. Be sure to get everything, including your video and book cover set up before you start.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're keen to secure a publishing deal, but you don't have any contacts in the world of publishing, I would definitely give it a go!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've secured a publishing deal for my new book Little Me Big Business

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Excellent Service"

What do you like best?

The platform is an excellent way for first time writers to get their brand out. We were able to get a good group of early adopters for our book. This then helped us get the book out to a greater audience later.

What do you dislike?

Not much. I will the revenue share was a little different but it is fair overall.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For us it was about testing our book idea and finding a publisher.

The fact that I did not have to shop publishers. They shopped my book through Publishizer.

What do you dislike?

The payment process via mobile devices needs improvement.

I made a critical publishing decision, one that was the greatest benefit to me via the platform. I was able to crowdfund my book through a successful pre-order campaign.
