Book Description

Technology is rapidly changing the marketplace for both Internet booksellers and traditional brick and mortar booksellers. Booksellers in the 21st century don’t want to just survive; they want to THRIVE in the face of new technological paradigm shifts that are changing the bookselling market.

The Future of Internet Bookselling helps the modern day bibliophile recognize the social economic winds of change blowing across the bookselling landscape by first understanding past bookselling practices.

It then discusses how the industry morphed into the present, and finally, how today’s technological marvels will become tomorrow’s standard operating procedures. Here’s a quick overview of the chapter highlights:

1. Bookselling Yesterday: Explores the early American beginnings of the bookselling trade and the forces that influenced changes in the practices of the day.

2. Bookselling Today: Examines some of the greatest problems facing booksellers in today’s tough competitive market.

3. Bookselling Tomorrow: The author takes a flyer on how emerging technological revolutions will radically alter the bookselling business model.

4. Strategies: How do booksellers adjust to the overwhelming forces of advancing technology, evolving consumer preferences, and increasing global competition? This chapter suggests a few possibilities.

This provocative treatise on the bookselling market looks at all perspectives and attempts to equip the reader with a few new tools to use in his or her business. You’ll get an exciting look at fresh approaches to old problems through the use and greater understanding of:

- Print on Demand (POD)
- eBooks
- Joint ventures and partnerships
- Intelligent computer software
- Cutting edge book scouting tools

It’s a unique treatment of the subject that’s sure to provoke an alternative thought process in the mind of the reader when considering the craft of bookselling.

Short but reassuring to online booksellers as to the future of physical books surviving in the digital age. Worth the small price of a kindle version.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provided me with the very valuable information that is making my retirement an absolute joy. Joe provides the "inside" like no one in the business. Thank you Joe and thank you Amazon for providing the evaluations that persuaded me to buy this book. I refer to it constantly and each time I find the help required.

More About the Author

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my page.

I'm Joe Waynick, author of the "Internet Bookselling" series of books about profitably selling new and used books on Amazon and other marketplaces. I publish the Internet Bookselling Blog at InternetBookselling.com where I post several times a week about the latest and greatest tips, tools, & techniques about how to buy new and used books and sell them online more profitably.

In addition, I host a FREE Discussion Forum called the InternetBooksellersForum.com where I interact daily with my readers who are looking for mentoring and advice on how best to run their online bookselling business.

I'm originally from Newark, New Jersey and currently live in the suburbs Phoenix, Arizona. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration in 2004.

I started selling books online in 2006 and quickly realized that I could earn a living as a full-time book scout while working from home. When I first started I was like a wide-eyed kid in a candy store and I've never regretted my decision to become an Internet bookseller.

After spending several years making money online selling used books from book scouting around the country, I decided that there just wasn't enough really good, high quality information about where to buy books and where to sell books, and exactly how to sell used books. So I started writing about my business and teaching others how to gain financial independence with online book selling.


Nowadays I spend my time writing about how to become an Amazon bookseller and giving one-on-one coaching to beginning and experienced booksellers alike on how to grow and expand their small business and the best way to sell books on line and maximize income.

I get asked all the time, "Joe, why do you give away so many secrets?" And my answer is always the same, "Why shouldn't I give away so many secrets?!"

We live in a global economy, and when you sell books on Amazon you're selling to book buyers all over the world. There's plenty of room for everybody. And in these tough economic times, there's no reason why ordinary people operating their own home based businesses shouldn't be able to make ends meet without struggling every month. So if you can make money using your computer, then why not do it?

Well, I've made it my personal mission to help as many people as possible gain control over their finances through my writing and mentoring. It's really that simple.

Good hunting.
