Market Intelligence and Market Connections for the Learning Creator Community

bmg Publisher Support

Helping publishers and learning creators find and reach specific people who teach specific courses across U.S. higher education has been at the core of bmg market intelligence efforts since the beginning.

Today, teams who deliver learning materials has exploded beyond publishing as we knew it a decade ago.  The term “publishers” in fact has become shorthand for a host of learning creators—from textbook houses and university presses to OER initiatives and edtech companies.

What all these providers and their dedicated teams share in common is a deep desire to create positive change by challenging the status quo...  to improve educational access and move teaching, learning, and new knowledge forward.

What Our Client Say...
Director of Health Professions, Medical, & Specialty Sales Health Learning, Research & Practice, Wolters Kluwer

“We employed the Brian Murphy Group to help us better identify target customers for some of our markets. As a result we saw several of our products increase sales due to the improved information and allowing us success in markets we had not entered previously.”

VP Business Development/Operations, National Geographic Learning/Cengage Learning

“The Brian Murphy Group [bmg] was able to produce immediate results on a technology sales effort for us in the AP market. Their deep knowledge in School and Higher Ed markets makes them invaluable in business development, strategy and sales planning.”

Marketing and Sales Director, Georgetown University Press

"I highly recommend BMG. They are ideal partners for modest-sized publishers who want the same experience and effectiveness as an in-house sales team at one of the large corporate textbook publishers.
