The American Booksellers Association has launched the new webinar series “The Top 10 Things to Know About...” to help booksellers as they enter the final quarter of the year.
The next webinar will take place on Thursday, October 1, at 3:00 p.m. ET on “Top 10 Things to Know About: Leveraging Customer and Sales Data.”
You’ve probably heard the phrase “data is king” many times, and it isn’t going anywhere. Knowing how to collect and use your customer and sales data is key to successful marketing and better customer engagement. Jordan Brannon and Cassandra Cross of Coalition Technologies will provide an introduction on how sales and customer data is collected through a few sources, and ABA’s Ryan Quinn will present the top 10 tips and notes from indie bookstores.
Following each webinar, booksellers will find a recap of the discussion in Bookselling This Week as well as on the dedicated “Top 10 Things to Know About…” page on BookWeb. All webinars will be recorded and added to the Education Resources page.
