Q: What is the North American Bookdealers Exchange?

A: It is an international book marketing organization, started in 1980, to help independent publishers promote and market their books through a variety of unique and cost-effective marketing channels. Over the past twenty eight years, our members have sold millions of dollars worth of books.

Q: What type of marketing opportunities does NABE offer?

1.  You can display your books at our NABE Book Showcase Exhibits,
held at major trade shows throughout the United States.

    2. Mail order and internet firms will see your book in the Publishers 
    Preview section
    of  Book Dealers World Magazine.

    3. Our responsive Mailing Lists are available for rental.

    4. The National Press Release Program will help you get free publicity
    in scores of newspapers and other media.

5. Our Promotion Express Package and Hot Books To Promote Page help you market your book or product on the Internet.

6. Plus, members receive Free Book Reviews, a Classified Ad, a 25%

7. And, of course there's our top of the line Super Book Marketing Deal which combines our best services and saves you over a thousand dollars on a Complete One Year Marketing Campaign.

Q: Why is NABE different from other publishing associations?

Q: As a mail order dealer, how can I benefit from joining NABE?

A: You'll have access to thousands of new books each year that you can promote
by mail, through the Internet and any other way you want. Most publishers offer dropship services so that you will not have to stock any titles.  Some even offer Internet Affliate Programs.
Q: What does a Membership in NABE cost?

A: It costs just $90.00 to join, and you get a Two-Year Online e-mail
Membership for the price
of one.  Other associations charge hundreds of dollars for annual memberships. You get real value with NABE and you won't have to renew every year. Also, your membership starts from the day you sign up. It is not based on the calendar year.

Here's What Others Are Saying About NABE....

"WOW!"  Ever since I joined NABE, that is the best way to summarize my feelings.  Just plain and simple..."WOW!"  You have been helpful, responsive and have given my book, "Suite Talk" such terrific exposure and publicity that words cannot express my appreciation. THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  Other independent publishers(such as my fantastic friend Art Fettig) initially recommended that I contact you to ensure that "Suite Talk" received full marketing support.  They sure were right!  THANK YOU!"
                                       Dan Burdadin, Lead Goose Publishing Co.

"It is my belief that most good books are still unwritten. They are still in the minds of you, me and countless others. When I wrote my first book, "When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat," I was lost in a sea of red tape and horrible misinformation about publishing and the "business of books." Thanks to you, NABE and your helpful magazine, "Book Dealers World," I started off on the right foot. You are a great  help to many an aspiring author.
                                      John Harricharan, New World Publishing

I'm very impressed with the organization you have put together. Your
Membership Fee and rates along with the other benefits are low in price
and high in helping self-publishers and others involved in mailorder
book marketing."                     R.Thomas, Thomas Publications

"A distributor saw my book at a NABE Showcase Exhibit and placed a large order for the entire country of New Zealand. It really pays to become a member of NABE."      D.Dossey, Outcomes Unlimited

"My Publishers Preview Ad brought in thousands of dollars for my line of books. Keep up the good work!"       Art Fettig, Growth Unlimited

"In May of 1999 you showed my educational product in California at the IRA convention.  Over a year later it paid off handsomely." Kathy Libby

"Great job on your profile of Olive Evans and The Thrift Store Bears.
You certainly deliver what you promise. As they say, you really walk
the talk."         David Evans, Teddy Traveler Co.

know everythings in good hands with you & Ingrid's help, which I always very much appreciate. I also greatly appreciate you both representing me & my book, especially when I can't always be at gatherings. It's nice to know that it's one less thing writers such as myself have to worry about or deal with, knowing we have folks like you & Ingrid in our corners."                       Kelley Anne McGee, Shore Gal Press

We are listed with Barnes and Noble as a direct result of the NABE Book Showcase Exhibits. Thank you for your good advice!"    Lloyd Ewart, Images By Lloyd

"Thanks for your efforts in the promoting of the Survival Guides. The first two trade shows I placed my books in brought an excellent response. One of the leads is a large company who mails out millions of catalogs. You are right. It definitely pays to follow up!"  Robert Pelton, Pelton Publishing

"I have had the exciting experience of selling books to Australia thanks to my ad in BOOK DEALERS WORLD."   P.Beall, Hand-in-Hand Pubs.
