[INGRAMSPARK] Free setup period extended

Post by Michelle » Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:02 pm

Good news for those who won't finish their books before the end of November to get free setup on IngramSpark -- they're now offering free uploads until 31 March 2018, using promo code NANO17. Heaps of time!

I am starting to wonder if they're gearing up to start free setup at all times for all people, same as CS is now?

@danwiz -- not sure if this was before your time at CS, but they used to charge a $39 fee to enrol books in EDC. IngramSpark could go that route one day and abolish the setup and revision fees, but promo periods can be quite effective as a marketing tool, as is indefinite free setup/revisions for members of industry organisations, so I don't expect it to happen for several years, if ever.

I've mentioned before how my professional membership with SPN gives me free setup/revisions with IS. Apart from the other perks of membership, the annual fee pays for itself many times over.

Michelle - yes, I was at CS when we had to pay to get our books into the ED Channels. They did away with it within a year after we put out our first book. I had not yet even discovered the community at CS and probably did not use it for the first time until 2013 or so; before that, I just did what all of the CS documentation tells us to do and survived the uploading and approval process of a few books. I certainly do not remember my first questions there. They were likely questions about the different PDF specs (X-1a, X-3, etc.).

Yes, I remember that you have mentioned SPN, I remember looking into it and deciding that it was not for me, but I can't remember why. What is SPN one more time, please? Let me look into it once more.

Probably because it’s an Australian organisation.
