About the Program

Full service distribution with a sales team is the goal for many independent publishers, but what's the best way to pitch when you're ready? If you've established a solid foundation for your business and sales are taking off, but you need a little more help handling your growing business... how do you prepare to approach distribution companies?

In this webinar, Bailey Davis, Supervisor, Content Acquisition Sales at Ingram Content Group, will talk about the various pieces of information that distributors look for when courting or being approached by a new client. She will also cover what best practices to be aware of as you prepare to give your pitch to the distributor you’d like to approach. In this webinar you will learn:

  • which key pieces of data you need to have ready,
  • what to expect in the initial conversations,
  • how best to prepare for the first conversation.

If your publishing business is ready for distribution, make sure you’re prepared to make your pitch. Join Bailey as she helps provide the tips and tricks for making your presentation.
