New Title/Product Submission Guide

Annual Advertising and Promotion Requirements

Advertising and promotion are important. Without them, your titles/products are lost among the tens of thousands of titles that are published in our niche each year. Advertising and promotion bring yours title/products front and center for our store customers, building awareness and interest that yields sales. With shelf space in the stores at a premium, advertising and promotion help you get the best possible placement for your titles/products.

Every vendor must meet at least a minimum advertising and promotion threshold per year (3% of previous year's sales or $130, whichever is greater). To determine the amount of your advertising minimum, please go to our new vendor portal at www.newleafvendors.com. Account Management Portal, enter your user name and password, and follow the links to the calculator. If you don't have your user name and password, email passwords@newleaf-dist.com, and we will provide that information to you.

While you are on the Account Management Portal, please check out our new Enhanced Product Details service and consider signing up. This service is free.
