Open the Floodgates on your original content

Calling all creative types: Poets, authors, painters, photographers, screen writers, playwrights, essayists, novelists, lyricists, and other artists. There is a new venue for you to display your work to the world. Connect to your target audience in this new marketplace called OpenFloodgate. Throw off the shackles of the traditional publishing dinosaurs, and embrace the new media by publishing your work online.

Through traditional old world techniques, you can only reach as many people as your work can physically get to. So if your publisher only thinks your book, for example, will sell 5,000 copies - that's all you get. You can only reach 5,000 - if that. There is a good chance that not all of those books will get to the people who would appreciate your work. So there may be unsold copies. And because of an antiquated distribution system - your publisher may pull the plug on your project, and label you as an unsalable author. When the problem was never with your work - but their distribution and promotion methods.

Through online distribution, however, the number of your potential audience is unlimited, and the people who you are trying to reach can easily find you via an online search.

And avid readers and art enthusiasts, you owe it to yourself to check out the content that is available through the Internet. Never be limited again by what's available at your local bookstore.
