Choosing name for business

Checking companies House if Leap of Faith can be used as a business name.




http://www.duport.co.uk/entry/company-name.php?gclid=CI-497fkpKkCFQoZ4QodThM1tg

choosing a company name

Naming your company is a very important decision. There are many different aspects to think of when choosing a company name, such as whether you want it to be descriptive, creative or to help you with branding. Here are some tips about the things you should consider when naming your company.

branding

Think of Google, Ford or Orange - three very successful brands with short, snappy and memorable names. Shorter names are easier to brand and if you are going to spend heavily on marketing, you will probably benefit from using a striking name that is easy to remember. You will also find short names advantageous when designing logos and business cards - simply because they take up less room!

being descriptive

If you are not interested in branding or have a more modest marketing budget, you may find that a descriptive name can bring you more clients. For example, if you were to look under “Takeaway” in a telephone directory, a name like “Google” would be of little use as it says nothing about your business. A name like “Perfect Pizzas” might be a little more helpful here as it would tell customers what your business provides without having to read a description.

thinking ahead

At some point you may want to put your company on the internet, whether as an online store or a company website. Most people want to register domains which contain their company’s name (i.e. Big Ugly Sofas Ltd would probably want to register biguglysofas.com). It is worth glancing at the availability of domain names just for future protection for your business, and see whether anyone else has taken the domain you may wish to use.

creative thinking

Many people call us to say they have thought of a name, but is has already been taken. However, there are lots of variations that you can make on a company name. For example, if the name Sandra’s Cars Limited was taken, you may want to consider Sandra’s Cars UK Ltd. You should be aware that a company may object to your using a company name if it is deemed too similar to an existing name, but this is a rare occurrence. Any objections must be made within 12 months, after that the name cannot be taken away from you.

If your preferred company name is already registered, feel free to call the office and we will be happy to discuss some variations with you. Please be aware that we cannot accept any responsibility for any decisions you make regarding the naming of your company.

play by the rules

Companies House will generally not register company names which could be considered offensive, so use your own judgement before applying. There is also a list of sensitive company name words that you may want to check out. Sensitive words include terms like “school” or “architect” for which you would need to acquire permission from the appropriate regulatory body.

How much does it cost to publish a Childrens book?


http://www.publishingbasics.com/2007/04/10/how-much-does-it-cost-to-publish-an-illustrated-children’s-book/

From this website one can determine how much it would cost to produce an illustrated children's book. But for the sake of this venture which as explained not for commercial gain but outreach. The costs still need to be covered. After producing book with CDs a sample may be distributed to an organisation that may provide funding for printing.

I have saved costs on producing illustrations and editing myself.




http://www.underdown.org/bookcost.htm
Interesting article research before deciding how much to price the book.

Why does a hardcover picture book cost $16?

It does seem hard to believe that a 32-page book should cost so much. Surprisingly, little of that consists of profit for the publisher. . . .

Half of the $16 is the wholesaler and bookseller's part--their overhead and profits. On average, the publisher receives $8, or perhaps a little more. Assuming that the publisher does a print run of 10,000 copies (this is fairly typical), of that $8.00,

$3.20 is overhead
1.60 is the royalty to author and illustrator
1.76 is the cost of paper, printing, and binding (binding is about half of that)
.64 is the cost of preparing the plates
This leaves 80 cents profit per book, assuming all goes well and that the entire printing is sold. And assuming, on the other hand, no subsidiary rights income, which would increase the amount of profit.

These costs are for an imaginary book, of course. Most books will vary from this, in a number of ways: this assumes a 10% royalty based on list price, but royalties can also be paid on net price, or with different percentages; overhead could be higher if the publisher spends more on marketing; paper can be more or less expensive; special features like fold-out pages or cut-outs add to production costs. But this gives you a sense of the costs involved, especially when you multiply these costs out by 10,000 to see what a publisher has to invest before a book is released: $17,600 for "PPB"; $6,400 for plates; overhead of $32,000; and an advance, which will be at least several thousand dollars. Just to break even, a book has to sell six to seven thousand copies. Many books, of course, do not reach that point. A few others go way beyond that. And some books provide additional revenue in subsidiary rights.

I don't claim that this information explains the financial side of the business in any detail, but I hope it gives a sense of why the process of committing to a book can be a lengthy one--publishers are taking a financial risk. And in almost all cases, they do an analysis of costs for the book, in more detail than I've gone into here, before making a decision.

Some more discussion of this subject can be found in

Please let me know your questions and I will build up this page, going into the areas you want to know about in more depth. Copyright © 1998-2006 by Harold Underdown. Last updated February 6, 2006.


Promoting Leap of faith book on sites

publishing research

Digital Publishing


Create space is a good opportunity for publishing allowing book design, editing and marketing.


Steps

Self publishing is a broad topic. There are many ways to self publish, through: vanity presses, subsidy publishers, micro publishing, POD (print on demand) printing, also known as short run printing, and 'true' self publishing.

Vanity presses should typically be avoided; they market themselves as traditional or subsidy publishers, but charge high fees and do very little or no marketing/distribution for you. They don't make selections for the most part, and take whatever comes their way.

Subsidy publishers are not as selective as traditional publishers, but work in a similar manner in the form that they reject manuscripts often. However, they charge the author for binding and publishing; the upside is that they contribute to marketing and distribution, and publish under their name. Authors tend to have limited control over design and such, and receive royalties, while the publisher keeps an amount.

Micro publishing publishers in micro or niche markets, and tend - due to the risk of lack of appeal and low economic scale - to be published electronically.

POD, or print on demand printing, are such like Lulu and Blurb. These tend to be done for short run books. These are useful for small quantities of books, and are useful for samples or one-off books. The price is normally somewhat high and is not really for large amounts of printing. Many are based online; though some offer ISBN numbers for an extra price, and some can also be linked to sites like Amazon, it's generally not an encouraged form of self publishing, except for short run printing. A lot of the time, POD printers create side operations that run as subsidy or vanity publishers.

Then there is 'true' self publishing, in which the writer encounters and deals personally with the marketing, distribution, design and storage, and covers the entire cost. A writer might hire a designer for the cover, or simply do it themselves; as a result of all this, all profits made go straight to the writer. Steps for true self publishing are listed below.

Through a local printer

  1. 1
    Get mentally prepared; self-publishing takes a lot of initiative and drive. Remember that it is your passion for getting the book out to the public that will carry you through frustrations along the way. That being said, self-publishing can be a profitable and exciting venture.

  2. 2
    Make sure that your book is complete, well-edited, and thoroughly proofread.
  3. 3
    List out the reasons why you want this book to be self-published and get an estimate as to whether the reason is strong enough for you to keep going.
  4. 4
    Create a good title that will pull people in. The title of your book can determine if people would like to buy your book or not.
  5. 5
    Get a designer to do a professional cover design.
  6. 6
    Next find a printer. Shop around and get quotes for anywhere between 500-2000 copies.
  7. 7
    Get ISBN numbers so that your books can be listed in the Bowker database where bookstores pick up latest books for retailing. Warning: ISBN numbers are sold in blocks of at least 10, not per unit (www.isbn.org).

Through a Website

  1. 1
    Microsoft Word
    Microsoft Word
    Find a good self-publishing website that allows you to publish a book free without set-up fees. Two such examples are featured in the external links below.
  2. 2
    Set up an account with the program.
  3. 3
    Create a good title that will pull in your prospective readers. Your book's title can make a huge difference in whether people will buy your book or not.
  4. 4
    Write your book with a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, or Word Perfect. It will make editing and revision a much easier job for you. Some self publish websites also provide service like online book builder, so you can make a book online by using the book templates and clip-arts of the site.
  5. 5
    Make sure that your book is edited very well. Ask a trusted and credible individual toproofread your book. You can often ask the company to edit your work, if you choose.
  6. 6
    Select the company that you want to publish your book. You must upload your document first. After this, you will have to design your cover (unless you prefer a pre-made cover from the company) and choose the price for customers and the type of book (such as bound, hard copy, or paperback). Once you finish the categories listed by the website, choose to finish publishing and your book is printed. You are now a published author!

How to Self Publish a Book


EditTips

  • Get a proof of your book before it goes to print. If you don't like how your book looks, you can make changes before you pay a lot of money for 1,000 flawed copies.
  • Make sure that your book is proofread thoroughly. You don't want your book to get bad reviews because of typing errors and/or poor layout. It's worth the money to hire a professional editor to read your book. You don't want people knowing that your book is a self-published book.
  • Add a great description to your book. That way, it will attract more customers. Use pithy descriptions to draw their interest.
  • Publicity is really the key. There are plenty of wonderful books in the world that sold 351 copies because they weren't properly promoted. And there are many ghastly, poorly written books that sold 43,000 copies because they were properly promoted.
  • Research shows that book-buying customers look at three things: The front cover, rear cover and table of contents. Spend the money to make these three places sing. Hire a graphic artist if necessary but think of this as the "kitchen and bath" sections of your book. Money spent in these areas will pay handsome dividends.
  • List your books on Amazon.com. Give yourself plenty of time to write the "publisher's comments" and make sure it is precise, grammatically flawless and well written. This is what potential book buyers will use to make a decision about buying your book.
  • Send two copies of the book to Amazon.com (following instructions at their site) so that the book can be scanned and made available on the "search inside this book" feature.
  • Write thoughtfully worded, intelligent and interesting reviews of similar subject books at amazon.com, and create a signature and/or tagline such as, "Rosemary Thornton, author,The Houses That Sears Built." Such a tagline generates tremendous free publicity to your target market!
  • Send free copies to anyone who may have an interest in this topic and ask that they write a review at amazon.com. Books with no reviews at amazon.com have a very, very low sales rank. Since potential buyers can't thumb through your book at amazon.com, they'll rely on other people's reviews.
  • Start a website and link it to the Amazon bookstore. Sell your books through your website.
  • You can also think of using services that offer POD fulfillment. These will make you pay a fee but eases the work for you. But keep in mind that POD (print on demand) is only for writers who are looking for a hobby, not a money-making career. Printing 1,000 copies of the average book costs about $3,500 to $5,000 or less than $5 per book. The cost to do this through POD would be about three times as much. Amazon (and most book buyers) will pay 50% of your cover price. It's hard to make money selling a $15 book for $10 (assuming a cover price of $19.95).
  • Don't over-purchase books, especially when easily avoided and/or when demand is uncertain. Too much extra stock means that you've paid too much and are unlikely to gain much from it.
  • Aggressively market your book through press releases, articles blogs, websites, and any other way that you can think of because marketing is the core activity that will ensure that people know and buy the book.
  • Get your book into book fairs like BookExpo America and the London Book Fair which will give you access to the traditional publishing industry - several third parties offer this kind of book marketing for a nominal fee.

Twin brothers Arion and Argo are scared. They have spent most of their lives shipwrecked on the lonely, gray island of Terrene with their ship's captain, and now he is leaving and they cannot imagine life on Terrene without him. He is going to Bluestone, a place where the birds always sing and the grass is ever green. He tells them he is going to prepare a place for them in Bluestone. Then he will come back for them, and they will all go to Bluestone together.

Though Bluestone sounds like a wonderful place, the boys find it difficult to wait for the captain on Terrene. The island is so gray that it is hard for them to imagine the vibrant colors of Bluestone. Soon they grow tired of watching and waiting for their captain, and it is hard for them to remember his voice. Can they really believe that he will come back for them? To do so they must have faith--they must see with their hearts, not their eyes. Will the captain really come back for Arion and Argo like he promised? And will the boys be ready for his return?

Once again, master storyteller Max Lucado tackles a difficult topic for children and creates an allegory that makes God's truth easy for them to understand. Coming Home captures the struggle and hope as we wait for Jesus to return and take us to an incredibly beautiful place that we cannot imagine. Children will learn powerful lessons about faith, patience, and God's great love and mercy. Recommended for ages 4 to 10.
