About Us

About Red Bike Publishing

We provide books for niche markets. Sometimes traditional publishers cannot earn a return on investment required for publishing in specialized markets. For them, book publishing is expensive and requires a larger customer base than may currently exist in a niche market. For you, this is an incredible opportunity. The doors are wide open for you to publish in small and specialized industry and hobby groups that are often neglected.

Red Bike publishing can help. Additionally, we are registered as a government contractor company with the CCR and VetBiz (DUNS 826859691). Specifically we are a service disabled veteran owned small business.

The Evolution of Red Bike Publishing

Not too long ago, Jeff Bennett left a successful Army career. He had served in intelligence and transportation, and wrapped up his career in recruiting. By far, the most difficult but rewarding period had been his experience as a recruiter. Tell a soldier to take a hill in the heat of battle and he’ll do it and exceed whatever standards you give. However, tell him to successfully encourage people to leave everything they know to become a soldier…that’s a tougher task. Hence, Army recruiting has taught Jeff everything about real marketing.

Prior to his departure from the Army, Jeff  read all of the books he could on marketing, sales, interviewing and resume writing. Almost everything he  read revealed the same message: Find something you are good at and do it. It took a while, but the message hit home. Jeff met many local business owners who found themselves succeeding in business doing something they enjoyed.

In his journey to find the right business, Jeff took a job in industrial security. It was fun, and he could use his strengths and the transferable skills he had learned in the Army to begin a new niche career. As he learned the intricacies of serving as a Facility Security Officer (FSO), he learned about the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR), and oversight by Defense Security Services (DSS). Jeff obtained certifications as an FSO and  Industrial Security Professional (ISP). He also developed a new goal: to be considered a security specialist or expert within five years.

One vital ingredient to Red Bike Publishing’s success is that there are no other comprehensive study books. Jeff began selling an eBook version of ISP Certification- The Industrial Security Professional Exam Manual on his website. His business plan called for publishing an eBook to simulate a real test-taking environment. However, his customers’ feedback led him to change the plan to offer print versions. Now, the books are available everywhere.

This experience led Jeff to write his first security book and market it using the website www.ispcert.com. He has since created Red Bike Publishing and its website at www.redbikepublishing.com, all because of similar shortages in niche resources. Currently, he is meeting more needs with many more books such as NISPOM and ITAR, and he also offers FSO and NISPOM training, initial security briefings and security awareness training. What began as a desire to teach other security professionals how to study for the exam and maximize their chances of passing, has grown to address other specialized industry and hobby shortfalls.
