Speaker's Bio/Recent Trainings
Co-Owner and Director of Development at E-tailer, Once Sold Tales, Carrie Jenott is responsible for forming partnerships with Public Libraries, University/College Libraries, Library Foundations and Friends of the Library groups. Head of Client Relations, she works with libraries of all sizes to help create revenue streams from weeded library materials and donations through consignment based e-commerce sales. Partner at Once Sold Tales, she has been on the Technology R&D team to develop innovations that help Libraries, Library Foundations and Friends of the Library gain a greater web presence and integrate online book sales for a greater ROI, healthy stewardship of resources, and increased funding opportunities. Prior speaking experience includes an industry overview, Q & A and workshop at the 2008 WLFFTA Friends & Foundations Forums.
A published author of industry articles, company Webmaster, and in charge of Marketing, she works to supply valuable information about Once Sold Tales to potential clients, and then works on behalf of the clients to market them to the public and their patrons and supporters through a wide variety of mediums. Clients enjoy increased public approval for responsible management, and personable services by providing opportunities for book ownership as well as checkout privileges. Funds created can go back to further the library's services and expand the collection. Carrie also works with other organizations to increase Charitable Corporate Donation avenues, and increase literacy and public good causes through greater information availability, books and media donations, and educational supports.
The Online Used Book Market has been increasing 28-35% over the last couple of years, and is a growing trend for libraries to make use of this opportunity - Weeded & discarded books are now seen as a source of funds through realizing their real market value, and not as a waste product, destined for landfills or recycling. Taxpayer funds are stretched further, and favorable public relations follows these "green" and profitable resource management practices.
Since 2003, Once Sold Tales has been an integral player in the online booksales market. With over 150 clients, our local partnerships cover the Pacific Northwest. Carrie is happy to facilitate Online/Community Book Sale workshops, Marketing/PR/Fundraising brainstorming sessions, Q&A about the industry and technology developments, Market Research, and to lend expertise in the Online Booksales phenomenon. Got a question about online book selling, weed/discard/donation programs or related topics? Feel free to email, and she'll be happy to help.
