Publishing companies may have been quiet for some time but, the influence and service they have brought into the country can never shy away. From children’s books to intellectual manuals, publishing houses have been in the industry long before the modern industrialization took place.
A publishing house basically, is the one that makes deals with companies and retailers for where, when and how to sell and distribute the book. Other than the disposal, they also execute promotional and marketing plans for the book. Before we introduce you to the most famous publishing companies in the country, let us take a look at how a publishing house makes an incredible book of knowledge be available for everyone.
1) They select for a marketable manuscript. Publishing houses do check on what’s the latest trend, statistics and even the market climates before they choose for the right books and frame them. They need to conduct their own thorough study to generate the most number of sales and longevity.
2) Editing and Designing the manuscript. Because a publishing company is responsible (most of the time) for the framing, they need to know the market climates in order to match the book design so it grabs the attention of the reader.
3) Sales and Promotions. The publishing company makes the deals towards retailers and companies concerned so they know how, where and when the book should be released. However, they do not do this for every author. There are a few authors that they take the long road of promotions and marketing execution. For the newbies and debut authors however, they will try to do the usual and traditional way of publishing. This is because they also consider the budget cost and other resources involved.

We owe these companies where we are right now!
Long before the fast advancement of both engineering and technology, there has already been a publishing house that has distributed books and learning materials that paved the way for the modern society. It may not seem too obvious for some but, we have already been in contact with them since the day we started stepping on foot on this world. Our parents read us story books to help us sleep. Our teachers provided us illustrations to make us understand and our employers handed us the needed handouts and modules so we would know the entire business process. All of which, we owe to these publishing companies.
So, if you are thinking of a career shift or if you would like to engage in a more fulfilling venture where the next generation can still take all the benefits, you can try to reconsider the publishing houses that molded us.
