Driving valuable new customers to your books, and reminding those customers
to come back and buy more books, is critical to the continued success
of the AbeBooks marketplace. Our Marketing Team is very active making
the most of the strategic marketing channels highlighted below, and this
page is intended to help you stay up-to-date on our activities.
Word-of-mouth marketing has always been critical to our success, and
we know the highest compliment you can give is the referral of
friend, colleague, family member, or customer. Referred customers are more likely
to buy the first time they visit, buy more, and buy more often. Every
time you refer someone to AbeBooks, you are helping to support your network
of independent booksellers, so please help us to help you sell more books
by working with us to spread the word!
AbeBooks is truly unmatched in the world: literally the largest selection
of books, thousands of independent booksellers selling
all types of books (no barbecues, no jewellery), and
a company-wide mission to help people find and buy any book from
any bookseller anywhere. These differentiators matter to book lovers, and
we're proud of them. They've set us apart from the beginning and they will continue to form the basis for all of our marketing activity. We're proud of all our booksellers, from antiquarian and rare to new and used, and we look forward to working with all of you to make sure book lovers everywhere discover AbeBooks.com.
If you have an idea for an exciting promotion or feature, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for new ways to sell your books!
