There are multiple ways to sign up and list your titles on NetGalley. If you are interested in a subscription to the service, you have two options--NetGalley Classic and NetGalley Advanced.
NetGalley Advanced Subscription
NetGalley Advanced is designed to reduce manual effort and save time, while offering additional reports to help your team assess your strategies. NetGalley Advanced helps publishers spend less time executing strategies and more time refining them.
If you’re managing titles on NetGalley, the Title Timeline will allow you to pre-schedule multiple phases of availability and see NetGalley promotions that you have reserved .
NetGalley Advanced gives publishers access to new on-demand reports to help you see how your titles are performing on NetGalley, to compare activity between imprints, and to gauge the effectiveness of your marketing promotions within NetGalley. NetGalley Advanced clients can opt in to receive reports automatically on a title's archive date. The reports available to NetGalley Advanced clients include:
- New Titles Created
- Type of Access Over Time
- Types of Access
- Activity by Member Type
- Top Performers
- Title Activity Chart
- Word Cloud
- Title Summary Report
For publishers with multiple imprints, the Company Admin Dashboard will give you visibility into activity and trends across divisions, with simplified access to each account. You’ll see company-level reporting, as well as the number of active titles across all accounts, compared to title level.
For each imprint, you’ll see how many active titles and pending requests they have, as well as the pub-date range. This means you can quickly tell if they have added their current season’s titles, or if they have old titles in their account that might need to be archived.
Publishers can use the Company Admin Dashboard to dive into each imprint with a single click.
NetGalley Advanced will help you view and assess important data related to your NetGalley activity, giving you the earliest insight into trends you’re seeing in your account so you can anticipate them as your books go on sale.
NetGalley Classic Subscription
NetGalley Classic will continue to be available for publishers and authors, and will include all of its current tools to drive online reviews and word-of-mouth, encourage nominations for the LibraryReads and Indie Next lists, and ensure that your NetGalley activity is trackable and actionable. Tools like the widget and Auto-Approved List ensure you’re reaching the right audiences, and the Detailed Activity, Feedback, Opinions, and Active Title Reports will always be available to you on demand. We are here to help your books succeed with both NetGalley Advanced and NetGalley Classic.
Whether you are using NetGalley Classic or NetGalley Advanced, you’ll benefit from ongoing enhancements to the member experience on NetGalley, like tools to make books in the NetGalley catalog more discoverable, and ways that make it easier for members to find, access, and leave feedback for more books.
You can see an easy breakdown of the differences between NetGalley Advanced and NetGalley classic in the below image.
We work with publishers of all sizes, and welcome smaller publishers and authors to pay per title if you have a limited publication schedule. Paying per title is cost-effective if you have fewer than 10 titles to add to NetGalley over the course of a year.
With this option, you will pay a one-time fee for each individual title you’d like to add to NetGalley. That book can be active on the site for up to 6 months, available for NetGalley members to request or download, depending on your preferences.
You will have access to create widgets (a pre-approved link you can use to invite your own contacts to view your book), and can also view detailed profiles of the members who request the book from you. Please note: The NetGalley community is not personally vetted by NetGalley, as we believe publishers and authors know best the readers who are most useful for them. This is why we ensure you have full control over who you approve or decline. A detailed profile of each member who requests a title from you is available to view, so you can make the most informed decision.
Detailed reporting about activity for your book is also included. These reports will show whether members downloaded the book, and specific feedback including reviews, star ratings, reason for request, suggested keywords, and opinions.
You will also have the option to upgrade to a bundle that includes the 6-month title listing, plus marketing. This is a great value! This bundle must be purchased as part of the title listing, and newsletter spots are subject to availability.
