BSU-148: Author Platform, Branding and Monetization, by Joel Friedlander
Some resistance to change is not bad. If people changed with every new idea that came around there would be chaos. Debating the relative merits (or lack thereof) of your idea has benefits. It can shape and add value to it. Creating a new idea is just the first step in a process. Now you must get others to buy into it to help make it work. When selling your ideas, you are questioning the existing rules and assumptions, so you must expect some resistance.
Display-marketing companies (such as Collective Goods) buy large, non-returnable quantities of books and gifts from publishers at discounts up to 80%. Then they sell the directly to consumers through displays at the buyers’ locations (schools, corporations, daycare centers).

“The APSS Sales Conference was an intense, dynamic and fascinating event. I acquired a great deal of valuable information and made great contacts. The inner world of special sales has always been an area of publishing that nobody else covers for authors, and it is the hottest market for authors today!”
"Every day you put a page in your book. You can never take pages out. There are a lot of pages in mine that I don't want other people to read. You put things in your book that change your life negatively. You can't change any of that, but you can change your future, one page at a time. Only you can determine what goes in your history book."
