Book Distributors are companies that you hire to promote and sell your books to libraries, retailers and wholesalers through printed catalogs or sale representatives.
Tip #1: Be aware that distributors might focus on a particular market outlet, such as bookstores or a particular book genre. Choose the one that fits your needs.
Tip #2: Distributors will ask for a 65% to 70% discount, if you want them to purchase your book. Also, most of them are exclusive, meaning you might not be allowed to sell your book on your own website. However, you must know that the great majority of libraries order books through Distributors.
Tip #3: For print distribution, setup your book with both Create Space and Ingram using the same ISBN.
