TOC Trifecta: This week’s trio of must-read articles (Sept. 6, 2012)

Membership, Building a direct relationship with customers, and a Dumbed-down DOJ brief

  1. Membership has its privileges — This piece was aimed at the newspaper industry but it’s very much applicable to the book publishing world as well.
  2. Community vs. commodity — Another article aimed at a different industry (television) but the one-to-one relationship it describes is equally important for books; think “direct sales”, people!
  3. Let me draw you a picture — Here’s how a 55-page DOJ brief gets boiled down to 5 pages…in comic strip format.
Each of these articles were featured in this week’s TOC newsletter. They’re the best of the best. We spend (way too) many hours reading every publishing article, blog post, and tweet so that you don’t have to.
