Every year, more books are sold to buyers in market segments outside of bookstores than are sold in bookstores. And they can be sold more profitably, in large quantities and on a non-returnable basis. This opportunity is divided into retail and non-retail segments. Retail includes buyers for discount stores, warehouse clubs, airport stores, supermarkets and more. You will learn ways to creatively sell to them. The non-retail sector includes corporations, associations, schools and the military. They do not resell books, but use them as promotional items. Combined, these represent a larger opportunity than selling through traditional outlets such as Amazon and brick-and-mortar bookstores.
Are you getting your share of these sales? In this presentation, you will discover how to find new markets for existing titles, locate new users for your existing information, find how to re-purpose your basic information and increase your sales and profits. Brian will also describe where and how to find prospective buyers in each segment, and how to make sales presentations and negotiate profitable sales.
- Discover new places to sell your books
- Find creative ways to increase sales, revenue and profitability
- Learn how to find the names and contact info for buyers for your books – not just books like yours
- See how to negotiate large-quantity, non-returnable sales and become more profitable
