“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”
– Mother Teresa
Helping Others Since 1947
For almost 70 years, Cookbook Publishers has been in the business of helping groups like yours. We have published thousands of custom cookbooks for non-profit organizations, churches, schools, businesses, civic groups, families and individuals, just to name a few. These cookbooks have helped people share their love of cooking with others while raising funds for the organizations and causes they hold close to their hearts. Funds from cookbook sales have greatly benefited these groups in a number of ways from mission trips and youth activities to new playground equipment and assisting families in need.
More than Just Publishing
I joined the Customer Service Team at Cookbook Publishers in 2009 and learned quickly that the company does so much more than offer beautiful custom cookbooks at an affordable price.
- We genuinely love what we do and we love what our customers do.
- We share your passion making a difference and we want to help you meet your goals.
- We want to publish your cookbook and we want to help you sell them.
- We understand that every cookbook is more than just a cookbook and we want your book to be something you are proud of.
- We care about your cause and we want to work with you to make it happen.
This is what motivates us to do what we do, and this is what inspires us to continue to improve the overall experience for our customers by making it as fun and as easy as possible – especially when it comes to selling the books.
Cookbook Sales Kit: A New Ingredient in the Recipe for Success
The Cookbook Sales Kit is just one more way Cookbook Publishers does the work for you! Once you have received the Cookbook Information Kit and are ready to get the show on the road, it’s time to order the Cookbook Sales Kit. The materials in the Sales Kit will assist with collecting recipes, keeping track of cookbook sales (before and after your books are delivered), approaching local businesses about advertising in your book, and of course promoting and selling your cookbook.
What Goodies are Included in the Cookbook Sales Kit?
Advance Sale Coupons
These handy little coupons are perfect when it comes to pre-sales! People interested in buying your book can write their name and number of copies they will be purchasing on the coupon itself. Not everyone will pre-order of course, but it can help give you a better idea of how many books to order. These coupons can also simplify the process of distributing cookbooks as you’ll already know how many books go to each person who preordered.
Learn how to increase your profits by selling ads to local businesses. Many organizations have earned enough money from ad sales to pay for their entire order before they even sold their first cookbook! This information packet includes instructions, sample ad pages and ad layout sheets to show your prospects the actual ad sizes.
Cookbook Sales Tracker
This convenient Cookbook Sales Tracker sheet is just one more tool that can make everything a bit easier for everyone. Keep a list of each cookbook purchaser along with their contact information, number of books ordered, amount due, and if payment has been received. People can order their books with ease and the committee can effortlessly keep track of orders and payments. The treasurer of your organization will love it, too!
Use these forms to help ensure that recipes are neat and complete. A generic letter on the reverse side of each form kindly asks for recipe donations to support your cause. There are many fun and creative ways to encourage recipe submissions! Feel free to contact us if you are in need of some inspiration, tips, or ideas.
A quick and simple way to promote your cookbook! Each poster can be personalized to let people know who is doing the fundraiser and how to order their cookbooks. Take these posters with you to different events to promote the books and even encourage recipe submissions. Hang them on the walls or in the doors or windows of your organization’s meeting place. You can even contact local businesses such as grocery stores, restaurants, community centers, etc. to ask about having posters on display in their locations. (That is also the perfect time to ask if they want to advertise in your book!)
Tips for a Successful Fundraiser Brochure
Selling a cookbook is easy if you have the right ingredients! This brochure includes tips for getting others motivated, ideas on how to effectively generate excitement about the book, and advice on how to market and sell your books. This brochure is a must-have for your fundraiser and you will reap the benefits of higher profits as a result!
