NetGalley for ECPA Members: Creative and Effective Strategies for Using Digital Galleys
ECPA Roundtable, NetGalley
1:00 pm EST
NetGalley is hosting this session for current clients.
Come join NetGalley for a roundtable discussion with other Christian publishers who are using digital galleys to reach communities of professional readers. NetGalley will present examples of how digital galleys have been incorporated into specific campaigns and provide an overview of key new features and programs. We’ll cover key reporting metrics and present updated stats on our community and activity. The session will feature ample time for discussion and questions, so that publishers can share ideas and suggestions for future development specific to the Christian publishing community.
This session is for current NetGalley clients only, but we’re always happy to provide an overview of the site and our partnership with the ECPA at any time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Stay tuned for news of our participation at the big trade shows—first up, London Book Fair!
