Unique Books has been enabling libraries to use the "long tail" collection ideas since before it had a name. Amazon.com and Netflix are the most commonly cited example of this recent phenomenon. They have found small titles combine for a huge percent of their sales.
Selling Your Product
Our professional library consultants handsell your titles, using copies of covers, to key selectors in all 50 states who prefer to see the book and size of the material. Additionally, we reach thousands of librarians each year at the state, regional and national conferences. We also provide a variety of selection programs to libraries highlighting titles and services meeting the varying needs of the market.
Unique Books consolidates the process, giving the library selectors the convenience of buying multiple publishers from a single source. One order, one box, one invoice.
You as the publisher benefit as well. Instead of shipping single copy orders to 47 different library branches, you simply ship directly to our distribution center and let our world-class library consultants take it from there.
Unique Books Library specific programs:
SoSmart™, a standing order program which allows publishers to anticipate predictable library sales, target key titles that can close collection gaps and forecast sales months in advance.
SelectSmart™, a highly customized program that allows librarians in larger systems to preview titles for multiple branches. Monthly titles submissions to theses desirable selectors build library sales quickly and profitably.
