You also need someone who can expand your book distribution channels. In my prior post, my innovative promotional ideas doubled, then tripled, the number of outlets selling our books. Im confident I can do the same for you.

You need someone to give a new shot in the arm to your mail order sales, someone who knows how to sell in space and direct mail media. Here, too, I believe I have exactly the experience you need. In the last five years, Ive increased our mail order book sales from 0,000 to ,800,000, and now were the countrys second leading marketer of scientific and medical books by mail. Etc., etc., etc.,
