    What We’re Learning About Direct-to-Consumer Sales

    Being able to quickly and efficiently connect with and engage readers is a tremendous advantage for any publisher. Those connections are also increasingly affordable and easy to achieve, especially when driven by the publisher’s own website.

    In the past, publisher websites functioned largely to house catalogues and share information on author submissions. Now, they can be designed to build direct sales, stimulate reader engagement, and encourage fans to spread the word about books, events, and authors. They can meet readers where they’re at – online – and reach them while they’re in the mood for a great new book.

    Drawing on some real-world examples and recent lessons learned, this session will explore best practices that any press can put to work to help boost direct-to-consumer sales.
