Market Your Books to Libraries
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Libraries are one of the most overlooked yet lucrative markets to sell your books, ebooks, and other information products.

Selling Books to LibrariesThere are over 120,000 U.S. libraries. Just think of the sales potential.

The problem is breaking into this market can seem difficult if not impossible. Librarian buying psychology is clearly much different than the rest of the marketplace.

But now my friend Elaine Wilkes is exposing the secrets to selling into the lucrative library market.

Why sell to libraries? Because sales are non-returnable, library users tell others about books they love, and you can sell a ton of books.

The neat thing is that Elaine has drastically lowered the price of her course to celebrate National Library Month in April (yes, I’m a little late in mailing this to you, but Elaine says she’ll extend the discount until the end of May.

Check out the details of all that Elaine offers in this course. Go here: http://www.yourbookinstores.com/idevaffiliate/idevaffiliate.php?id=157_4_3_2 (yes, that’s an affiliate link for a great program).
