Key Reasons to invest in SKD Publishing

- The market opportunity for a niche publishing company focusing on activism and social impact has never been more ripe. The narrative resonates with people and establishing presence globally won't be tasking, making SKD Publishing well patterned for fast growth. 
-  It's far beyond the idea stage and the inaugural product is ready. The product has received positive reviews from well versed book critics. We also have a significantly long email list of people who have asked to be notified when the inaugural book is out. This is an accurate measure of intent of payment and market validation. 
- We have signed an Advertising Partnership with The New York Times to distribute our inaugural book's promotional material. We will also have other global media houses as advertising partners that give our marketing campaigns advanced reach to millions around the world. 
- The team has quality experience and knowledge in their fields with a good majority having worked with trailblazing multinationals.

Problem

World issues and social issues don't have enough awareness around them.​

No media companies amplify purposeful movements effectively.
When really bad things happen, it's everywhere. But, what about the build up? The media doesn't record or share the answers to 'How did we get here?' People need to be educated and aware of that.

Solution

How it works​


 

Product

Books that shed light on deserving world movements.​

The books will lead pivotal conversations and enable readers to have more knowledge about resonating movements.  Yearly, SKD Publishing will acquire at least 12 new titles.

Merging Activism with Storytelling​

In order to champion this niche, SKD Publishing aims to excellently merge activism on various issues with storytelling through its books. This will be a key guideline in manuscripts selection.

Our First Title, EVOLVE.

SKD Publishing's inaugural book, EVOLVE is a non-fiction book  that explores the connection between human behaviour and the quality of our world. It explores topics such as mental health, effects of social media as well as racial and gender inequality. 

The message the book intends to pass across is: We will first have to change ourselves before we can change the world.

The book was given to a group of well-versed book critics for their reviews and will officially be released to launch this book publishing company. A mock-up of the book's cover has been placed below.


We are excited to have this fantastic body of work to lay the perfect foundation for the values that SKD Publishing intends to emulate.

EVOLVE sets the perfect pace for the strong voice SKD Publishing wants to hone to back other movements worthy of support through the awareness and education provided by future Authors.

Competition

Others in the Game

For our current niche of publishing, there is no one doing it right and championing it. Although we do have indirect competitors who are top global publishers with successful imprints.





They are indirect competitors because they have resources to immediately enter a new market with competence and expertise. 
Although, the full potential of our niche market can only be be explored fully with a niche publishing company that has social impact publishing as a focus. That's us.


Advertising Partnerships and emotional connection with customers are great.
But, what will enable us to make a mark from the start?

Company Vision

Merging Activism and Storytelling​

In order to champion this niche of publishing, SKD Publishing aims to excellently merge activism and storytelling. This will be a key guideline in manuscripts selection. Our niche in publishing is targeted towards digitally connected people that discuss world issues and social movements online.

1. Books are published
             2. Readers buy and the content of the book sparks an in-depth conversation, a global      conversation starts on how these issues affect the lives of people and the quality of our world.  
              3. As a company whose values include genuine activism, SKD Publishing will be supporting  NGOs and initiatives that work to  execute solutions concerning  social issues 
     highlighted in our books. This will be achieved through our philanthropic arm,
                                                         THE SKD WAY Foundation.



There is a lot going on in the world. A lot that needs attention, a lot that needs support and a lot that needs more light shed on it. These are various movements that have the potential of mending our world. Filling in the gap created by inequality, the gap created by injustice and anything that makes our world warped, this is what purposeful movements can achieve with the required resources.

That’s what we are here for. Publishing authors who have messages inspired from deeply rooted issues with put light on these movements and give them all the power to execute the needful.

We are SKD Publishing.
