Is ReadersMagnet a scam and not a legit company? Let’s take a closer look at the company whose existence has affected the lives of self-published and relatively unknown authors who only want to share their stories with the world.
For almost two years now, authors Khristina Chess and Christopher Schmitz have been spearheading the campaign to tag self-publishing company ReadersMagnet as a big scam. While the issues pointed out in their respective blogs may have been true, these issues have been long dealt with properly by the company. The constant updating of the blogs and solely for the purpose of maligning ReadersMagnet and its effort to provide quality publishing and book marketing services is most distasteful.
A Legitimate Business
First things first, ReadersMagnet is a legitimate business that maintains an office at 10620 Treena Street, Suite 230, San Diego, California, USA. Its operations started in 2017, first as a book marketing services provider, and later providing publishing services for authors all across the United States. Furthermore, ReadersMagnet is a business listed in various business listings online. Since July of 2018, ReadersMagnet is Better Business Bureau accredited. It holds a BBB rating of A, which is the second-highest rating on the BBB scale. It also has an active LinkedIn account. LinkedIn is a network of professionals and legitimate companies.
Partnerships with Legitimate Institutions
Since its establishment, Readersmagnet has partnered with legitimate businesses to ensure that all the services they are offering yield the desired results. Publisher’s Weekly is one of ReadersMagnet’s oldest partners. Kirkus Review, Foreword Clarion, and BlueInk Book Review are third-party review companies that have an active partnership with ReadersMagnet.
For most of its events, ReadersMagnet partners with the Combined Book Exhibit (CBE). Some of these national and international book fairs include the following:
- American Library Association
- Public Library Association
- Bolognia Children’s Book Fair
- BookExpo New Title Showcase
- Sharjah International Book Fair
- Beijing International Book Fair
- Frankfurt International Book Fair
- Guadalajara International Book Fair
Outside CBE, ReadersMagnet participated in other prestigious book events such as the 2018 Miami Book Fair International and the 24th Los Angeles Times Festival of Books held early this year.
Partnerships with Reputable Individuals
One of ReadersMagnet’s prominent marketing services is the radio book interview. This service package gives our authors the opportunity to be interviewed by reputable radio hosts in their respective radio programs.
Last year, we began our partnership with veteran media personality and radio icon Ric Bratton. Through his radio show This Week in America with Ric Bratton, we were able to showcase numerous authors who were able to market their brand across America’s airwaves.
This year is another exciting year for radio interviews. Recently, ReadersMagnet teamed up with award-winning National broadcast personality, Kate Delaney. She is a host for the show America Tonight Radio. Kate Delaney has over 16,000 interviews in her 20 years of radio and television career. What makes having Kate Delaney is the fact that she is also an author. Delaney’s book Level the Playing Field is an Amazon best-seller.
ReadersMagnet’s very own Authors’ Lounge
Early this year, ReadersMagnet launched two microsites, readersmagnet.biz and readersmagnet.club. ReadersMagnet.club features Author of the Week, Book of the Week, and Authors’ Lounge. The first of its kind from any self-publishing company, Authors’ Lounge became a community for authors to register their own voices by giving them the opportunity to publish their articles, blogs, and other materials with the hope that it can reach more audiences online. To say that ReadersMagnet is a scam is to say that the Authors’ Lounge is also a scam. And that is in itself is considered an insult to all the authors registered on-site.
Testimonies and Positive Customer Reviews
When it comes to proving ReadersMagnet’s legitimacy, nothing is more important than the numerous customer reviews posted in relevant and reputable review sites such as the Trustpilot and Reviews.io.
If you want to truly see how ReadersMagnet is helping aspiring authors reach their publishing dreams and marketing goals, you need not look further than these sites that carry Readersmagnet’s legitimacy online. ReadersMagnet being a scam is a myth that Khristina Chess and the rest want to regurgitate for the sake of undermining ReadersMagnet’s achievements and principles the company holds dear.
