October Meeting: How to Sell More Books in Large Quantities, With No Returns

Bookstore sales have declined each month since January 2010. And every year, more books are sold to buyers in market segments outside of bookstores than are sold in bookstores – more profitably on a non-returnable basis. Are you getting your share of these sales?

In Brian Jud’s presentation at the October 20 meeting of Book Publishers Northwest, learn how to find new markets for current titles (nonfiction and fiction), locate new users for existing content, find new uses for your basic information and increase your unit sales, revenue, and profits.

What you’ll learn in this session:

1. Why you will increase your revenue when you stop selling your books
2. How to negotiate with any buyer
3. Proven ways to sell to buyers in retail and non-retail markets
4. Ideas for selling nonfiction, fiction and children’s books
5. Hints to extend your product line – quickly and easily
6. How to create micro-markets for maximum opportunity
7. Tips for searching the Internet to locate new prospects
8. How to define your target buyers in ways that lead to more sales
9. Ways to increase your sales in special markets through creative promotions
10. How to sell more books to corporations, associations, schools and other segments

Get the answers to your non-bookstore-marketing questions in this information-packed presentation.

Jud says “The buck starts here!” Whether you publish fiction, nonfiction or children’s books you will get ideas to sell them in places you never thought possible. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn from Brian Jud, the book-marketing mentor.
