Our Libribot matches books daily against over 50,000 active wants recorded by over 1800 of our registered users - and the list grows daily. With LibriDirect your books will be included.
LibriDirect emails are sent to these serious collectors, librarians and booksellers whenever one of your new listings is matched against one of their standing wants. Any time you add a group of specialised items to your website they will immediately attract the attention of collectors eager for books in that field. Links within the email will take them directly to your site where they can also look for other items of interest. From there it is only a simple step to signing up and receiving your future catalogue announcements and becoming regular visitors to your site.
Our LibriDirect websites and plugins are built using WordPress, the world’s most widely used website development platform. The extensive and active community of WordPress developers, programmers, bloggers and website owners support a huge internet ecosystem and active community of users. In addition to the extensive built-in features, thousands of third-party plugins and widgets have been created to provide almost any feature a user might think of - usually for free. Installing and customizing these powerful features rarely requires programming skills or code. A powerful built-in content management system also makes it easy for you to add to, update or modify whatever you want to publish on your site.
A sampling of things that can be easily added to your website include:
Event calendars, newsletters, social media share buttons, Google Maps, slideshows, eBay lists, MailChimp, social networking feeds, user forums, embedded YouTube videos, etc., etc.
On the vast and crowded internet your website is a small needle in a field of hay stacks. Building it is only your first and simplest step. Getting customers to find and use it is the real challenge. That is what we are here to do. LibriDirect puts you and your website one click away from the thousands of active bookbuyers who use viaLibri every day. Your books and images become the lure that draws them from our site to yours.
There are many ways in which books find buyers on viaLibri, and all of them can lead directly to you. If your books are already finding buyers on viaLibri then those buyers will currently be sent elsewhere to finalise their purchases. With LibriDirect they can be sent directly to you.
Your knowledge and experience as a specialist bookseller are also in demand, and many of the visitors who search on viaLibri, both buyers and sellers, are looking to find that expertise. Linking your website to viaLibri can help them discover you and all that you have to offer beyond just books to sell.
