Voice Verso Private Beta Launch

Voice Verso Stats
Here’s Voice Verso, so far!

The Launch

On 31st July 2016 around 12pm(IST), Voice Verso released its private beta for  its privilege authors who would love to try the revolutionary DIY(Do it Yourself) book writing and publishing tool. To our overwhelming disbelief, around 25 authors signed up in just 24 hours of the release, to prove us that we are on a right track.
Since, then we are growing with a moderate speed of eminent writers, with the tally reaching up to 75 authors.
The Daily Active Writers(DAW) which is one of the key metrics to our growth is around 45 and we intent to increase that more and more.
After 1 month of our launch(i.e. – 31st August 2016), we released a new feature, wherein photographers, fashion blogger, visual storytellers, etc. can create their visual anthologies and portfolios using our revolutionary page by page image uploading option.

The Product

Voice Verso is first of its kind DIY(Do it Yourself) book writing, publishing and selling too. It is an end to end solution for budding authors to turn out to be best-selling authors. The product have been designed keeping in mind the craftsmanship of artists, poets, storytellers etc. to create their book page by page using our propitiatory “Drag and Drop book turning and 3D book modeling tool”. This way the writers fell as if they are writing and creating their own book, thereby making us a truly indie publishing platform. It takes out the boring cluttered manuscript and age-old Microsoft Word writing practices and gives a feel to the authors as if they are truly interacting with their content.

What we intend to do?

Our future goals is to make every budding author, who ever have dreamed of publishing their books; a best seller. Our goal for coming 6 months is to publish the books of 100+ authors and make them sell it online. With the positive acceptance of the ecosystem all around, I see that we will hit our benchmark real soon.  There are 120 million authors that goes unnoticed every year. Even, J K Rowling rejected 20 times, only to get her first Harry Potter . We want to cut this lag time for authors, so that they accelerate the book publishing process faster and better.

You can buy and sell your books on Voice Verso e-commerce and you can promote your titles on other retailers like Flipkart, Amazon, Kindle , iBook store etc. And, best part is you can do this all FREE.

6) In line book editing

You can select editors for per page or multiple pages editing  as in when you need to do so. Your DIY book will be co shared with the editor of your choice and then you can give them privileges to edit your book. Furthermore, you can keep tabs of the editing  first hand. This avoids hassle and communication lags between authors and editors.

7) No Cash upfront

Remember at point 3, I told you that you can publish both eBooks and Paperbacks free? Yes, you heard it right. We at Voice Verso, understand that, authors may not have enough economics to support their book publishing, editing , marketing and selling endeavors. So, we do not demand any cash. However, for using premium services we demand meager royalty ranging from 0% to 50%. Wait, did I just say – “0%”? Yes, you heard it right, there is a plan in the tool(which is least) which helps authors to publish and sell their books by keeping up 100% royalty. How cool is that?

8) Book Publishing houses aggregation

This is our futuristic attempt. We are in talks with some good old and famous traditional publishing houses to collaborate with us. Using our tool, if your book performs real well or you become our premium author, you will get a chance to choose your favorite book publishing house with your negotiable royalties and you can publish your book with them too. Told you, truly a best-selling deal here!

Conclusion

Voice Verso is making an end to end all round authors and readers marketplace. With our refined iterations with tech, we want to offer best possible book writing, publishing, editing, marketing and selling experience to our authors. We are hopeful to serve the author community in best of their interests. Keeping that in mind , we have kept the platform an “invite only” deal. Meaning, only privilege writers, poets, authors etc. who are serious enough to publish their books can try and receive the fruits of our tech. We are adamant to do so, to keep up content and publishing quality. However, we are excited to make platform live for all very soon.

From Blogging to Book Writing!

From Blogger to a Published Book Author

Blogging as a whole industry is streamlined and is growing gruesomely. It has been reported that, every 1 second 9 new blogs are created on the World Wide Web. People from all across the globe share their thoughts, life, processes etc. via blogs.

It has been reported that almost more than 45% of the website on the internet uses WordPress(A blogging site) to record, write, publish and share their thoughts. This is growing more abruptly. However, there were certain setbacks due to the advent of social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. As, these sites always have tried to become the new face of blogging. Nonetheless, pure blogging still has its roots grounded and its very foundation supports the people to create their voices and share it to the world.

Words have always been powerful, whether being spoken or written, otherwise. It’s the power of shear words which can move mountains, win us battles and create the transformation of one form of knowledge into another.

Below is a bar graph of the number of blogging websites from 2009 to 2014. See, the exponential growth these writing platforms has. It includes, all WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger etc.

Blogging industry from 2009-2014

As, you can see how many blogs are piling up from 2009 to 2014 and, how the content driven internet is erupting in a mass manner. We are basically, surrounded by the content driven internet since, the inception of the Dot-com bubble.

We saw the eruption of a blog storm, from all these years. Now, let us look at how many self-publishing books are there from 2009 to 2014.

Here, is the graph for the same –

A plot showing the number of self publishing authors from 2009-2014

We can clearly observe that, how there is a consistent increase in the self publishing authors in the world. From 2009 to 2014, the trends are changing really in positive vectors. Especially, with the access of Kindle, Google books etc. People have become more digital savvy to publish their content.  Further, analysis shows that, due to the increase of self publishing scenarios, the market of e-book has been sky-rocketed.

Voice Verso entering into the picture

Now, what voice verso is dealing here is providing a blend wherein writers or bloggers can have a common notion of reaching to their respective audiences, not just via blog posts, but via books. Genuine, published e-books! Eventually, they can sell these e-books online too.

It has to do with  the amazing set theory, wherein the readers and writers are the universal set and, Voice Verso‘s sweet spot lies in the intersection of blogging, book publishing and the eCommerce for Books(both buying and selling).

 

Voice Verso - Blogging+ Book Publishing+Book eCommerce

So, notice how our metric is working here? We are dealing with all the writing enthusiasts to create, publish and share their authentic, quality oriented and genuine content. Once, you do have some considerable amount of posts(say 30-40), you can publish your own eBooks and sell them online.  This is how Voice Verso is dwelling forward and we wish to change the blogging industry for better.

So, start writing your stories, articles, poems, etc., with Voice Verso and start getting it noticed in World Wide Web. Once, you do have some considerable amount of posts, go on to publish your own eBooks, with our Voice Verso Dashboard feature(which will be activated automatically, once you have 30+ posts in the site).
