A GLOBAL RIGHTS CENTRE

For publishing professionals.

 

Start with a team

Business opportunities happen when people join teams.

A team is the forum where you and your coworkers collaborate to meet your buyers.
Steps:
  • set up a team for yourself and invite your coworkers.
  • add works to your rights catalog.
  • tell buyers about your catalog and invite them to join your team.
  • create sales leads.

Hilfetext:Teams

Ein Team ist eine Gruppe von Users.
Zu jedem Team gibt es eine eigene Datenbank mit eigenen Works, Rights, Contacts.
Ein User kann in beliebig vielen Teams teilnehmen.
So kann zB eine Agentur ein Team anlegen für Belletristik und ein anderes für Sachbuch.

Grow your catalog

Backlist is the new frontlist.

  • Each book has its highest value at a certain time in a certain market. If it’s visible at all times markets can find it when they are ready.  
 
Steps:
  • write taglines and a full descriptions for your books.
  • attach covers, review material, book trailers, or whatever works
  • add the available rights for each language, territory and format to your works (e.g. English-World-Volume).
  • post news and comments about what others are saying about your books. Buyers will be notified.
The catalog contains the works 
Note: Each work can have a certain number of rights.
Note: Each right has a language, a territory and a publishing format (e.g. French, World, Print)
 
Use the catalog to 
  • add, edit or delete a new work
  • search in works
 
In catalog view you can 
  • sort works by author’s name or modification date
  • view the items attached to each work (genres, channels, tags, rights, leads, images, documents, comments)

Invite your contacts

Publishers may be looking for you.

Editors and publishers will join your team and connect with you and your team.
 
Steps
  • upload your rolodex and send invites to your contacts so that they can see your catalog.
  • add tags to your new contacts so that you can identify the right buyer for the right book.

Turn leads into deals

A sales lead starts out as any inquiry, then turns into a submission and into a deal.

Works need to be submitted specifically or widely. Each sales lead is a business oportunity.
 
Steps
  • select a work and create a new sales lead for a possible buyer. Select the publishing formats, the language and the distribution territory you want to submit (e.g. Volume, English, World)
  • update the lead status as soon as it changes. Stay on top until a request turns into a deal. Rejected? Oh, no! Start another lead.
  • Tags help you prioritize your sales leads. And everything else.

Channel your books

A platform is not a platform is not a platform.

Online visibility is everything. But not for every book. We encourage you to channel your books to the platform that works best for you. Or not at all.
 
 
Steps
  • specify a channel for the works in your catalog so they become visible where you want them. This can be your own website. Or, Rightsdesk, the global marketplace for the rights community.
  • you need to set up your list of channels in user settings. Ask us!
  • in case you want your book to be invisible (why?), then simply don’t select a channel. Nobody will see it, except you and your colleagues.

Keep buyers alert with notifications and comments.

News are relevant.

But when there is something to say that matters, then editors should be notified: Awards, reviews, sales and updates.
 
Steps:
  • add comments to a work to broadcast updates, reviews, sales news and readers’ reports.
  • Rightsdesk will notify the editors who are considering the book.
  • don’t worry, we will keep newsletters and notifications to a reasonable minimum. We all hate information overload.
