[PAST EVENT] The E-Commerce Revolution—Ron Martinez Talks about New Developments in Technology that will Boost Profitability

August 8, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm

Free – $15.00

 Every author (and publisher) wants to sell more books. And that’s one of the reasons we all come to BAIPA meetings—to stay on top of cutting-edge technology and information to help us do exactly that.

Ron Martinez, our August speaker, founded, where he focuses on conventional and enhanced e-book development, book apps, book and author marketing, and original publishing. He is one of the most knowledgeable publishing technology players in the world today regarding issues relating to e-commerce.

On August 8, Martinez will be covering a wide variety of topics that should be of great interest and benefit to BAIPA attendees, including:

  • How to optimize your Amazon e-commerce relationship
  • Could the millions of books using Ingram for fulfillment be used by authors and publishers for selling their own books and a curated store of other books?
  • Could print book/ebook sales ever be a smooth and seamless one-click operation from a Social Media post?
  • Who does fulfillment work (for both printed books and e-books), how is the money collected, and how is the money transferred?
  • When an author/publisher gets involved in e-commerce, what are the prudent protections and structures to be aware of when money and credit card info changes hands? (Liability issues are a concern.)
  • For delivery of an e-product to a consumer, should it be direct from the author/publishers own structure or from some outside source? And by what format?

E-commerce needs to be approached carefully and without hype. Ron Martinez has the knowledge about all the evolving options to share with author and publishers attending this event on August 8th in Novato.
