Special-Sales Tip of the Day: September 3, 2015

"It's not a product unless it sells," says the old adage. You can have the greatest product in the world, but if you can't sell it you won't get very far. What are three reasons that someone would want your book? What benefits does it provide? What does it promise? How can you make your content more attractive to other people?

You Said It

“As an author, publisher and online book promoter I have gained insight into the world of publishing and sales through APSS I otherwise would not have had access to. I recommend this program to anyone seeking to sell more books.”

      Laura Dobbins

(If you are in So California and want to sell more books with no returns, attend APSS Book Selling University in Los Angeles, Sep 12; details and registration are at http://tinyurl.com/ppjtxbk)

They Said It

“You don’t have to be good at sales to be effective – just passionate.”
