Each program accurately positions groups of publishers and their titles for particular audiences. Our goal is to sell each title to its full potential and to keep our publishers healthy and successful.</p> <h4><span style="color: #5c5c5c;">Sales Channels</span></h4> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG&rsquo;s distinct distribution programs are not restricted to particular sales channels. On the contrary: IPG&rsquo;s many means of reaching the full book market are used whenever they are relevant for titles in any of our distribution programs.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For instance, our program to encourage professors to use our titles for college courses is crucial for titles sold through the <a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/ipg-academic-and-professional-publishing-pages-182.php">IPG Academic and Professional Publishing&nbsp;</a>program; but titles from every distribution program are also sold through this channel if there is a reasonable chance of success.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">The following is a list of our major sales channels.

IPG

<h1 style="text-align: left;">IPG</h1> <p style="text-align: justify;">The publishers sold through the IPG trade book program produce titles primarily intended for resale through bookstores and the library market. To succeed in this highly competitive industry, such books must offer content that is unique and special, have very attractive covers or jackets, and show highly professional interior designs and typography. They must also receive serious publicity and PR support.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Depending on the needs of a publisher, IPG is involved to an appropriate degree in the creating of all of these elements. We help publishers best position their titles for the highest possible sales and then aggressively sell the books to as many accounts as possible.</p> <table style="width: 400px; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0" cellspacing="5" align="center"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/browse-all-titles-pages-30.php#by_Catalog_ipg-general-trade"><img class="image" style="margin-left: 22px; vertical-align: middle;" title="IPG General Trade Spring 2019" src="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_GT%20M%20cover.jpg" alt="IPG General Trade Spring 2019" width="145" height="188" /></a></td> <td><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/browse-all-titles-pages-30.php#by_Status_1&amp;by_Catalog_ipg-children-s"><img class="image" style="vertical-align: middle; margin-left: 22px;" title="IPG &amp; TSP Children's Titles Spring 2019" src="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_CH%20M%20cover.jpg" alt="IPG &amp; TSP Children's Titles Spring 2019" width="145" height="188" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;"> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>IPG General Trade Titles</strong><br /><a href="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_GT%20M.pdf" target="_blank"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="../filebin/images/icon_pdf.gif" alt="" width="16" height="16" /><span>&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-decoration: underline;">PDF Catalog</span></a></p> </td> <td> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>IPG&nbsp;&amp; TSP Children's <br />&amp; Parenting Titles</strong><br /><a href="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_CH%20M.pdf" target="_blank"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="../filebin/images/icon_pdf.gif" alt="" width="16" height="16" /><span>&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-decoration: underline;">PDF Catalog</span></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p style="text-align: justify;">Some publishers distributed through the IPG trade program have only a handful of titles, others have hundreds. Some have annual sales in the thousands of dollars, others in the millions. The quality of individual titles is much more important to IPG than the number of titles on a publisher&rsquo;s list.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A variety of sales tools are used by IPG to maximize sales. Titles are featured in the IPG general catalog or the IPG children&rsquo;s and parenting catalog. Through the IPG title database they are accessible to the entire sales staff for use in customized print or electronic catalogs, and for specialized sell sheets and marketing initiatives used to reach thousands of accounts in many markets.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The major book retailers and wholesalers are sold by IPG&rsquo;s in-house sales staff, which currently numbers 12 people for the book trade and another seven for special sales and the library market. Independent bookstores are sold by our highly regarded commission reps&mdash;five separate groups with a total of 23 salespeople who call on each store in their territories. Over one hundred reps sell to the gift store market.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Canadian market is covered by the Canadian Manda Group, which fields 13 reps. And of course the titles of publishers participating in the IPG trade program are also sold through all of IPG sales channels where appropriate.</p> <p><a href="../publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_ipg"><img style="float: right;" src="../filebin/images/navigation_icons/btn_browseIPGPublishers.png" alt="" width="220" height="37" /></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you are interested in applying for distribution with IPG, please view our <a href="publisher-contacts-pages-199.php">publisher contact information</a> or <a href="contact-ipg-pages-37.php">send us a message</a> and we will contact you shortly.</p>
Trafalgar Square Publishing
<h1>Trafalgar Square&nbsp;Publishing</h1> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG&rsquo;s Trafalgar Square Publishing distribution program sells books from almost all of the major UK publishing houses, and from several major Australian houses as well, into the US and Canadian markets. The books are bought by Trafalgar on a firm sale basis. Orders are consolidated once a week in London and bi-weekly in Alexandria and shipped to the IPG distribution center in a container, typically 40,000+ units each week.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Trafalgar titles are featured in their own twice yearly catalogs, and publicity and PR functions are handled by the Trafalgar in-house staff. IPG uses sophisticated algorithms in conjunction with its point-of-sale database to manage inventory, and other supply chain automation is employed to make this business convenient and profitable for Trafalgar&rsquo;s client publishers.</p> <table style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0" cellspacing="5" align="center"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/F16/F16_TSP_large.pdf" target="_blank"><img class="image" style="margin-left: 20px;" title="Trafalgar Square Publishing Spring 2019" src="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_TG%20M%20cover.jpg" alt="Trafalgar Square Publishing Spring 2019" width="145" height="188" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Trafalgar Square Publishing Titles</strong><br /><a href="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_TG%20M.pdf" target="_blank"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="../filebin/images/icon_pdf.gif" alt="" width="16" height="16" /><span>&nbsp;</span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-decoration: underline;">PDF Catalog</span></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Trafalgar titles, just like the IPG titles, are sold into every major market for books in North America; but there are some subtle differences in approach. Many titles that might have been thought to be &ldquo;too English&rdquo; or &ldquo;too Australian&rdquo; can have surprisingly good sales in our market when handled as niche or special interest books. Many UK and Australian houses publish titles in carefully maintained and long-running series that perform extremely well in backlist. A new title in a series must of course be made into an occasion to sell the whole series.</p> <p><a href="../publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_tsp"><img style="float: right;" src="../filebin/images/navigation_icons/btn_browseTSPPublishers.png" alt="" width="307" height="37" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you are interested in applying for distribution with IPG, please view our <a href="publisher-contacts-pages-199.php">publisher contact information</a> or <a href="contact-ipg-pages-37.php">send us a message</a> and we will contact you shortly.</p>
IPG Academic and Professional Publishing
<h1>IPG Academic and Professional Publishing</h1> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG Academic and Professional Publishing, formerly known as River North Editions, is a distribution program for academic and professional publishers. Publishers in this program include some of the world&rsquo;s most respected professional and scholarly presses from the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa.</p> <table class="image_left_no_border" border="0" align="center"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href="../browse-all-titles-pages-30.php#by_Catalog_academic"><img class="image" style="margin-top: 5px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" title="IPG Academic and Professional Publishing Spring 2019 Catalog" src="http://images.bookstore.ipgbook.com/images/catalogs/large/S19_AP%20S%20cover-large.jpg" alt="IPG Academic and Professional Publishing Spring 2019 Catalog" width="145" height="188" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;"> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">IPG Academic and Professional <br />Publishing Titles</span></strong><br /><a href="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/S19/S19_AP%20S.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-decoration: underline;"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="../filebin/images/icon_pdf.gif" alt="" width="16" height="16" /></span><span style="font-size: x-small;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">&nbsp;</span><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">PDF Catalog</span></span></span></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p style="text-align: justify;">Titles in the <span>IPG Academic and Professional Publishing</span> program appeal to an audience that is attracted by eclectic content that has a strong point-of-view and is serious in nature. Many of these books could and are used in upper-level college courses while also demonstrating a strong appeal to specialized retailers.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG diligently seeks out and approaches these specialized accounts with customized sales tools. The books are also aggressively marketed to professors and academics through regular, targeted approaches. This allows us to make books available in the North American market closer to the publication date in international markets and take advantage of targeted reviews that can reach consumers through specialized academic journals and online buzz.</p> <p style="text-align: right;"><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_rne" target="_blank"></a><strong><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_rne" target="_blank">Browse all IPG Academic and Professional Publishers</a><span style="font-size: large;"><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_rne" target="_blank">&nbsp;&rarr;</a></span></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you are interested in applying for distribution with IPG, please view our <a href="publisher-contacts-pages-199.php">publisher contact information</a> or <a href="contact-ipg-pages-37.php">send us a message</a> and we will contact you shortly.</p>
IPG Spanish Books
<h1>IPG Spanish Books</h1> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG&rsquo;s Spanish Books program markets titles written in Spanish from all over the Spanish-speaking world. Most major bookselling organizations in North America now deal in Spanish-language books, and IPG has had good success in encouraging smaller booksellers to start a Spanish Language shelf in their stores. Libraries located in areas with a significant Hispanic population are very strong customers for these titles as well.</p> <table class="image_left_no_border" style="width: 158px; height: 255px;" border="0" align="center"> <tbody> <tr> <td><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/F19/SP/F19_SP%20M.pdf" target="_blank"><img class="image" style="margin-top: 5px;" title="IPG Spanish Books Fall 2019" src="http://resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/F19/SP/sp.JPG" alt="IPG Spanish Books Fall 2019" width="145" height="188" /></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: left;"> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">IPG Spanish Books</span></strong><br /><a href="http://www.ipgbook.com/resources.ipgbook.com/resources/catalogs/F19/SP/F19_SP%20M.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small; text-decoration: underline;"><img style="vertical-align: middle;" src="../filebin/images/icon_pdf.gif" alt="" width="16" height="16" /></span><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">&nbsp;</span><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: x-small;">PDF Catalog</span></span></a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG is the only major distributor to have a separate Spanish-language product line with its own catalogs, and of course this program is administered by people fluent in the Spanish language. It is one of IPG&rsquo;s fastest-growing lists and there is certainly no mystery about the demographic changes driving it.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Books from IPG&rsquo;s Spanish list are sold through all of IPG&rsquo;s sales channels as well as by IPG specialists dedicated to this list only, who sell to specialty retailers and wholesalers and work with the sales staff to maximize sales in all accounts. IPG is an important supplier to Spanish-language stores and libraries.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">IPG's long-standing relationships with buyers of English-language books position it well to capitalize on the growth of market share of Spanish-language titles in the general market.</p> <p><a href="../publishers-pages-32.php#by_Distribution_Program_span"><img style="float: right;" src="../filebin/images/navigation_icons/btn_browseSpanishPublishers.png" alt="" width="252" height="37" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If you are interested in applying for distribution with IPG, please view our <a href="publisher-contacts-pages-199.php">publisher contact information</a> or <a href="contact-ipg-pages-37.php">send us a message</a> and we will contact you shortly.</p>
