Like all good things usually do, Vault of Books happened by chance. It was the product of a long, boring summer and two restless teenagers with a passion for reading. We were into web-developing and embarked on it as a summer project, reviewing some of the books we were reading. Today, we have thirty highly skilled reviewers on board, working with leading publishing houses and literary agencies across India. Rukun Kaur, a publicist at Random House India said this about us:
“Working with The Vault over the past year has been fantastic. It’s always a pleasure to find partners who share a similar enthusiasm and passion for books. Shriya and her lovely bloggers are always a delight to work with. We look forward collaborating more frequently to foster a reading culture within Indian readers.”
Our USP lies in being authentic. We do paid advertising, but even then we won’t write a positive review if it doesn’t deserve one. That’s something we clarify to the clients straight from the beginning.
Our diverse variety of reviewers includes published authors, journalists, and plain old college students. Each one of us brings a different perspective to the table, and makes sure we give every book its best shot. We have an incredible team in place, without which the website would be a shrivelled shell of what it is today. This is not some nineteen year old’s personal blog who reviews books on the side. It is not also an e-zine which has movie reviews, book reviews along with food reviews. The main aim of Vault Of Books is to provide different readers a chance to get to know about books- Good Books, bad books, interesting books and boring books.
Here is an overview of our readership (click to enlarge): – April 2013
On an average, we get 300-400 individual visitors EVERY DAY, and about 4000 page clicks. Even on an off-day, we get three hundred clicks. That makes our average 120,000 visitors. Every month, we grow by around 10%, so you can calculate our average visitors today.
