Understanding SOOP’s Crowdsourcing Model

Something Or Other Publishing has developed a unique Crowdsourcing Model that benefits our writers in their goal to build their group of fans and close supporters from the start. 

Our Voting Program is an interactive component of our Author-Drive Publishing Model to create more emphatic and authentic connections with prospective readers by collecting votes, representing a sign of interest and curiosity to learn more about your stories in development. Authors can benefit from this program to collect supporters, measure their expectations, and set goals based on their performance.

Getting Started

It’s easy to generate attention, but the tricky part is keeping the interest. 

Building a fan base is something that every author needs to do before they even get started writing. It will help you publish your book and generate the buzz you want simply by having a group of engaged readers who support your work along your journey. 

Turning interest into engagement is challenging but achievable with engaging content and the right platform.


“Creating a fan base is about giving your most loyal supporters a reason to stay connected.”

Content creation is the initial step to displaying your expertise. Sharing your work will help you generate buzz about your stories and writing career, which can help you build momentum and gather support as you prepare for the publication of your book.

Here are some topics to consider for your content: 

  • Writing Samples/ Excerpts
  • Book Recommendations
  • Bold Takes
  • Daily Activities
  • News Opinion Columns


Start with a center stage to showcase your writing skills constantly!

Your platform is crucial to formally present your stories and deliver an experience to prospective readers that can get them closer to you. Once your readership grows, you can consider setting up a monthly newsletter or even a Youtube Channel to keep your most loyal supporters engaged.

Consider the following options to get started:

  • WordPress
  • Blogger 
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • Substack

Ensure that you have completed the following steps before submitting your story idea concept:

1. Craft a Captivating Story Idea Description: You must write a descriptive story pitch that will draw the attention of potential readers and supporters. Make sure you accurately convey the idea of your book and entice readers to give it a try. Moreover, including an attractive cover image to illustrate your vision will significantly boost the success of your book idea.

2. Narrow Down Your Target Audience: You should know the specific audience you aim to target with your story. Understand your niche reader’s preferences and behavior to use them in marketing your book and engaging with potential readers.

3. Improving Your Online Presence: To establish yourself in today’s publishing industry, it is essential that you have a noticeable presence on the internet. Having a connection point with your followers will help create an interactive community around you, and using SOOP’s voting tool is an effective way to start.

4. Stay True to Yourself: Your distinctive writing style will make you stand out among the countless authors and creators creating content. Risk-taking is necessary to reach a wider audience. However, authenticity is critical to transitioning from a talented writer to a published author. At SOOP, our writers are encouraged to express themselves and present their best works of art. We invite you to break away from the traditional conventions and challenge yourself to reach the next level of your storytelling.
