ABA Education Program and Spring Forum
This Spring ABA will present an update on two initiatives critical to the success of any independent bookstore — an active pre-orders campaign and participation in the annual ABACUS financial survey.
This new educational session will focus on best practices for increasing pre-orders — including the latest on accurately reporting and tracking — based on in-store experiences and feedback from the Pre-Order Booksellers Task Force.
The session will also provide an overview of ABACUS data, including data specific to each region, earlier ABACUS delivery schedule, and ways submitting stores can successfully use their ABACUS reports to make sound financial decisions.
We hope you will join us this spring for this discussion on improving store profitability.
