As eCommerce continues to grow into an even bigger global phenomenon, selling used books online has become more profitable than ever.
I have personally sold over 4,000 books in a single month using the very same techniques that I teach in my books:
Internet Bookselling Made Easy!
Advanced Internet Bookselling Techniques
However, selling new and used books on the Internet can seem overwhelming to beginners. I've been selling books online since 2006 and I'm willing to bet that I've seen just about every problem you're likely to encounter — and probably quite a few more that you’ll never anticipate.
During the course of my business I can say without a doubt that one of the smartest things I ever did was seek out experts in the bookselling field and ask them for help. Sometimes that took the form of an informal hour or so of the expert’s time graciously given freely to me. And there were other times when I paid for the expertise I needed; an investment that has paid for itself many times over.
I love helping book sellers develop and grow their businesses. If you use my services you'll quickly discover that it's easy and fun to have an expert on your side.
General mentoring is conducted by phone. You purchase sessions in advance in one of these convenient blocks of time:
Telephone consultations must be used in a minimum of 30-minute blocks. eMailed questions are billed at a 15-minute minimum (i.e., if it takes me 5 minutes or 10 minutes to answer, you'll be charged for 15, so it's best to consolidate your questions in advance!)
Are you interested in a longer-term commitment? Purchase a 10-hour block of time at a $40/hour savings off my standard rate.
Ready to scale your business into a full-time commercial operation? Then take advantage of my on-site warehouse management consultation services.
I can help you with workflow layout, the construction and placement of your bookshelves, software selection and implementation, employee training, and a million other things that can go wrong when leasing a warehouse.
My rates for an on-site warehouse management consultation visit is a flat $800 per day, plus a round-trip coach airline ticket, plus $125 per night hotel accommodations, plus $40 daily per diem, with a minimum 3-day engagement, (3 days and 3 nights), which includes one day of travel.
Additional days can be purchased for $700 per day plus my standard daily rates for hotel accommodations and per diem.
