ForbesBooks Difference

The ForbesBooks Difference

You’ve heard of Forbes and the world of business book publishing, but might be wondering what exactly ForbesBooks does for busy professionals like yourself. Our mission is to bring your Stories, Passion, and Knowledge to the world.

Our History

Forbes is one of the most iconic business media companies in the world, and Advantage is one of the largest book publishers. Together, they partnered to create ForbesBooks. We provide a unique publishing opportunity for the top business leaders, as we get our books to the market faster than other top business book publishers, but we also provide our Authors the opportunity to publish their content across Forbes Media platforms. Our Authors get the chance to share their business insights on Forbes.com that has tens of millions of readers each month.

What Makes Us Different

There are dozens of business publishers out there, we know that. But we’re different. Here are just some of the ways we give you a dramatically different and more rewarding experience than traditional publishers do.

Speed-to-Market

Authors with an especially timely message will benefit from our professional publishing process that cuts the normal publishing timeline by 75%, all while still being held to the same award-winning editorial and publishing standards that have made Forbes an iconic global brand.

Multi-Platform Publishing and Marketing

Our Authors are published throughout the Forbes global network and receive cross-platform marketing support from Forbes including visibility in Forbes Magazine and ForbesBooks Review, online exposure on Forbes.com, ForbesBooks Speakers, and in-person events.

Brand Recognition

Forbes is known globally as the top media brand for business leaders and professionals. Authors invited to publish with ForbesBooks will significantly benefit from the brand’s authority and unique co-marketing opportunities that reach a global, multi-faceted audience of executives, decision makers, and owners.

Retain Your Ownership Rights

Our authors benefit from controlling and owning their content and intellectual property. Unlike traditional publishers, you get to retain full ownership and have full control of all rights to your book.

Unparalleled Author Support

Once you’ve published a book with us, you’ll get to benefit from peer-to-peer learning and ongoing strategic marketing guidance, as well as the chance to attend exclusive VIP experiences and access to major Forbes conferences.
