Happy New Year!
The year 2013 is finally upon us and booksellers the world over are nervous.
With the U.S. facing a debt crisis, a sluggish economy, and possible more military intervention in the middle east, booksellers and business people of all persuasions are hunkering down for another tough year.
Yet there are still bright spots in an otherwise difficult economic climate. Last week the labor department reported that 155,000 new jobs were created in the U.S. in December. That's more spending power for American consumers. Hopefully, some of that will be spent on books.
Nevertheless, the publishing industry is holding its own. By pushing for greater efficiencies as evidenced in this week's guest post article Advantages of Employee Monitoring Software, and maximizing unique buying opportunities such as the one profiled in my article on the upcoming VNSA mega book sale, The Ultimate Discount Book Sale Is VNSA, booksellers are getting accustomed to working through the challenges of the marketplace.
I'm going to spend a lot of time this year writing about new ways for booksellers to find profitable books, DVDs, CDs, and even VHS for resale on the various marketplace venues.
In addition, I'm going to start covering UPC code buying opportunities for toys, games, tools, apparel, and just about everything else under the sun that can be sold for a profit.
As difficult as times may seem, there's always opportunity right around the corner. All we have to do is find it.
