Bookllo Services Book cover design

Have you written a book? Congratulations! Now it’s time to get your masterpiece distributed so readers everywhere can enjoy it.

But where do you even start? We’ll break it all down into simple steps so you can get your book into the hands of eager readers.

What is Book Distribution?

Book distribution refers to making your book available for purchase through various sales channels. This includes:

  • Online retailers like Amazon
  • Physical bookstores
  • Libraries
  • Specialty or independent bookstores
  • Your website or store

The wider your distribution, the more visibility and sales opportunities for your book.

Our book distribution service helps you get your book into these key channels. We want to make you a bestselling sensation!

Why Book Distribution Matters

You’ve invested so much into your book – countless hours writing, editing, formatting. Now it’s time to get it in front of readers.

Without proper distribution, no one will be able to buy your book. It will simply collect virtual dust on your computer hard drive. What a travesty!

With our assistance, your book can reach a wide audience and have a real impact. We’ll get you set up with all the major retailers so you can start selling right away.

Book distribution gets your work into the hands of the people who need to read it. This leads to:

  • More sales
  • Greater reach and impact
  • Opportunities for speaking engagements or workshops
  • Building your author brand and platform

Don’t keep your book hidden away. Let us help share your message with the world!

How Print-on-Demand Works

Many new authors publish their books via print-on-demand (POD). This means:

· You don’t have to pay for a large print run upfront.

· Books are only printed when someone places an order.

· This reduces risk and saves you money.

With POD, you can make your book available without carrying inventory or upfront printing costs. Books are printed one at a time, on-demand, and shipped to the customer.

This makes self-publishing and wider distribution much more accessible for indie authors. Our book distribution service utilizes POD to get your work onto retailer sites.

Benefits of Self-Publishing

Self-publishing has opened a world of opportunity for authors to share their work. Here are some of the benefits:

  • You maintain full creative control.
  • You set your own publication timeline.
  • You keep all royalties and rights.
  • Global distribution is possible.
  • It can lead to a traditional publishing deal.

Self-publishing allows you to get your book to the market quickly. And with quality distribution, you can build an audience and launch your author career.

We want to help you take advantage of self-publishing and get your book into as many sales channels as possible. The possibilities are endless!

Maximizing Book Distribution

To maximize exposure for your book, distribution through major online retailers and physical bookstores is key. This usually involves:

Selling through Online Retailers

  • Amazon – The world’s largest bookseller. Essential for wide reach.
  • Barnes & Noble – Major bookstore with large online platform.
  • Apple Books – Preloaded on every iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
  • Kobo – Popular ebook retailer with global distribution.

  • Independent bookstores – Build local connections.

Our distribution service will help you get your print book onto physical shelves so readers can discover you in person.

Utilizing Your Own Sales Channels

  • Speaking events or conferences – Perfect place to sell in person.
  • Social media – Drive people to purchase online.
  • Email list – Marketing to existing followers.

We’ll provide guidance to help you leverage your own sales channels in addition to wider distribution. Every sale matters!

The Importance of ISBNs

An International Standard Book Number (ISBN) acts like a product barcode for your book. It identifies your specific title across every format (print, ebook, audio, etc).

ISBNs are crucial for wide book distribution:

  • Retailers require them to list and track your book in their systems.
  • It distinguishes your book from other titles.
  • Allows accurate sales reporting and royalty payments.

We’ll provide you with personalized ISBNs for each version of your book. This enables seamless distribution across all major retail platforms.

Proper ISBNs get your book into retailer catalogs and sales systems. A key component for distribution success!

Book Funnel Design Service: Convert Readers into Leads

A book funnel is a sales funnel that involves a book. It follows a step-by-step process, similar to a sales journey, where individuals progress from being unaware of your business to becoming paying customers.

A book funnel serves two purposes: 1. Directing people to purchase your book, typically with limited profitability. 2. Utilizing your book as a catalyst to drive individuals towards purchasing other products or services, which can be more lucrative.

The second option is where your book can truly generate substantial income. In essence, a book funnel functions like any other sales funnel, generating leads and guiding them through various stages of the buying process.

ISBN Services – Get ISBN to Self Publish Your Book

ISBN streamlines the publishing process and maximizes distribution. While you can self-publish an ebook without an ISBN, it’s recommended for wider platform availability. However, a print book cannot be published without an ISBN. Traditional publishers typically provide an ISBN, but self-publishing authors have two options: use a platform-provided ISBN or purchase their own. Using a free ISBN from a platform like Amazon KDP limits distribution options, locking the book to that platform. Buying your own ISBN grants greater control over distribution.
