Book distribution is always a tough subject to master for many new authors. In the business world, distribution is the process that puts business products into the hands of customers. In the book world, distribution makes publishers and authors’ content available to businesses and organizations who sell or provide books to readers. Not so scary, right? In this session, you’ll learn the different distribution models available to authors and publishers as well as which models can reduce financial risks and set you up for success in the marketplace. We’ll discuss formats, pricing, discounts and returns as well as book information (metadata) and how it relates to the distribution of your book. This session is sponsored by IngramSpark.
