Making a decision to enter special markets may have significant impact on your business and at best is a ponderous event. And it is getting tougher with the availability of Big Data, a faster rate of technology change, increased competition and multiple variables to consider. Here are Ten Ways in Which the Decision-Making Process Has Changed for Book Publishers.
Here you will find instructions for creating a marketing plan of a business title as well as a sample prospect list with 28 pages of potential special-sales buyers who can purchase your books in large, non-returnable quantities. There is a description of how corporations use books as premiums and how you can find sales representatives to sell your business books for you to corporate buyers.

From the book, “Why I Love Sales,” by Jill Slupe: “Sales are indicators of how your company is performing. At Verde Martin we say that sales is a science because it is measurable. Sales help your company gauge its success or failure. They are clear indicators of the direction your company is headed.”
“Thanks! This (APSS webinar) was very informative. It was well worth my time this evening. :-)”

There are many elements that go into producing and marketing a book successfully. APSS has reduced them to a list of the 150 most important things you can do to reach your goals. These will be presented in groups of five over a period of time. They may help you get unstuck in your marketing efforts, sell more of your books and build your publishing empire. Here are tips 141-145:
141. Seek reviews. Some reviewers want your book pre-publication and some post-publication. Follow their guidelines. Look into Goodreads.com for additional exposure through reviews.
142. Learn from bad reviews. Blaming the reviewer for a bad review is like blaming your scale if you are overweight.
143. Compete for awards. These can give you additional exposure and credibility. Seek those that are relevant to your title.
144. Use your website strategically. It is not enough to have a website. “Surfers” will peruse your site for 10 seconds or less before deciding to stay. Get attention quickly. Give them reasons to stay and make it easy for them to buy.
145. Do not start your own blog. Instead, contribute to blogs that already have a large following.
