Author Testimonials

Inspiration is nice, but real-world feedback is more practical, especially if you want to sell books.
My co-author and I were trying to decide on a title for a book we have coming out on Retirement in Q1. We were able to enter the three choices we were considering and use the 50 to 64 age demographic which is our target audience! The results were easy to understand and the comments are extremely valuable. We especially liked being able to see the demographics of the person who made each comments as we could see clearly what they liked and didn’t like. We were able to use this information in writing or rewriting some of our chapters. Or simply confirming that we were on target with some things. Also, the turnaround was amazing.
For years I've been building a brand, and quite honestly, my 1000 true fans are going to buy my book no matter what the title is. That's why I chose PickFu.com; I wanted objective feedback on a book title so I could expand my platform and serve more leaders that don't know me yet! The process was simple to set up and I'm pleased with the results. It gave me plenty of data to digest and clarity on how to move forward with the release of my first book.
Beyond reporting the numbers, each respondent leaves a short reason for their selections. That feedback helped me understand why and how people reacted to each title, and to find those people who sounded the most like my ideal reader.
I have loved PickFu and recommended it to dozens of people already. I've used it to quickly iterate ideas and have some data to make decisions. I'm a huge fan and will definitely continue using it for various projects.
I highly recommend PickFu to the authors and aspiring authors I work with. Having the ability to objectively split test book covers and book titles from an unbiased audience is vitally important. Book titles and book covers can significantly impact purchase conversion, and a non-fiction author's thought leadership. Being able to test these factors is peace of mind.

    The best memoirs aren’t vague self-help style books—they’re pieces of literature that take the reader into the memoirist’s unique experience. Memoir titles should reflect that unique experience.
