How publishers use Bookshop.org to sell more books and support local bookstores—in addition to selling on Amazon
Founder & CEO of Bookstore.org
Bookshop.org is an online bookstore that financially supports physical, independent bookstores. In Bookshop’s first two years, it has sold over $100 million in books and earned over $19 million for local bookstores. Bookshop is also committed to supporting independent publishers, who can become affiliates on the platform and earn a 10% affiliate fee for every book sold – with a matching 10% shared with independent bookstores. Founder & CEO Andy Hunter will discuss best practices for publishers who wish to work with Bookshop.org, and answer questions about the platform.
1. Learn how to set up a Bookshop.org affiliate account.
2. Best practices on creating lists of your books by theme or season.
3. Ensuring your books are available on Bookshop.org via Ingram or POD.
4. How to optimize your Bookshop.org presence for SEO.
