Ingram Advance is a monthly print catalog that Ingram Book Group distributes to booksellers and libraries around the world. Titles are eligible to be included in Ingram Advance only once when they are first released. Therefore it is imperative that if you are interested in this opportunity, it must be ordered with your initial POD/Print order. With this marketing opportunity, Ingram will produce a short description of the title—using your short and long description as a guideline, retail pricing information and a color cover image will also be included.
Distribution – Ingram’s 13,000+ customers, 6200 book retailers, 7000 librarians and 120 international accounts. 6 titles are listed on each page of the catalog.
Titles submitted to Ingram Advance will not appear in the catalog until 3-4 months after the title has been submitted to Ingram—titles are submitted to Ingram approx. 24 hours after final approval of your interior and cover proofs. The three to four month lead-time is attributed to the lead-time necessary for print production processing of the catalog.
