Solutions for Discovering Successful Content

Publishing professionals can measure the commercial marketability and writing styles of manuscripts they are considering acquiring rights to, or manuscripts they have already optioned.

Writers can upload and analyze manuscripts they have created to determine who they write like, how successful their titles could be, and promote their work to publishing professionals through Inkubate's social publishing network.
