eCommerce: Connecting Consumers to Your Content and More
When it comes to getting books into the hands of more readers, direct to consumer sales is at the core of it all. Selling content from your website connects you to your buyers and their buying habits, and in many cases provides a single fulfillment solution for both electronic and print content.
We understand that implementing or refining your current direct to consumer strategy takes time and resources. That’s why Sheridan has developed three unique eCommerce platforms to help you succeed in this everybody-wins medium and reach all of your readers.
Empowering You With The Tools You Need To Sell Print And Electronic Content - Extend Your Reach And Build Awareness.
Sheridan Connect: Sell print and electronic content directly to consumers from a fully hosted and branded eCommerce site. With this platform, Sheridan creates a new, uniquely branded eCommerce website that lets you sell directly to consumers. We use eBook formats that are fully compatible with today’s eReaders, tablets, and mobile devices and our print-on-demand option makes printed titles available, too. Incorporating Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology ensures your eBooks are restricted to authorized users only. And since ongoing evaluation is critical, available analytics provide you with detailed statistics regarding consumer behavior and purchasing patterns.
Publisher Connect: Transparently integrate eBook and print fulfillment with your current eCommerce site. If you have an established eCommerce site, Publisher Connect seamlessly integrates with your system to fulfill electronic and print orders. DRM technology is available to ensure that your eBooks are restricted to authorized users only. Sales transaction reports provide you with customer data and purchasing patterns that can be used for future marketing efforts.
ShelfWise®: A simple way to manage eBook distribution and sales without committing significant costs and resources. Geared towards authors and small publishers, this Sheridan offering provides an easy and affordable outlet to sell eBooks directly to consumers. ShelfWise is an aggregate eStore, housing titles from multiple publishers and authors in a single online catalog.
