Audio Book Guide: How To Download and Listen to Audio Books

Digital Audio Books are getting more popular by the day. Weekly, more digital media players are made available and consumers replace their old cassette and CD players with the modern MP3 players- These MP3 players are much smaller and can be loaded with many MegaBytes of content, music and audio books, even videos.


Audio Books are normally encoded in either MP3 or WMA format. Both formats can be played on PC’s, laptops and on Apple computers and most portable media players (MP3 players), like the iPod, Zune, iRiver, Samsung MP3 etc.


Here are a few tips that will help you making the right decisions, when buying your first audio book:


To download large files from the internet, it’s best to have a high speed broadband connection, it can speed up the download considerably. If you are on an slower – ISDN or analog – connection, downloading is still possible. It will just take a bit longer. I suggest you use a download manager to be able to pick up where you were interrupted, should the line go down.


The file size for audio books can vary considerably, depending on the file quality.


Usually audio books are made available by the publishers in several different compressions, making the files smaller. The most compressed format is usually of good, audible, but not excellent, quality, whilst the medium compression will be perfect for most users. The largest files usually provide better than CD quality and can be quite bulky. If you are not sure which format suits your ear most, download all three qualities for testing, then decide what is most convenient for you. When you then buy your next audio book, you’ll know what firle format to download.


The iPod has made media players popular, and a large number of iPods are used by old and young consumers. The questio I’m asked most often is: “Is it possible to transfer audio books to an iPod?”


My answer is a simple “Yes.” It’s a straightforward process: All you have to do is to burn the audio book files to CD first (this is a step we’d always recommend as it is wise to make a physical backup copy of anything you buy just in case your computer ever fails or is stolen) and then rip that CD straight into iTunes, from where it’s transferred to your iPod when you synchronize it.


Burning your audio book files to an audio CD on your computer is quick and easy, particularly if you are using Windows. If you are in doubt how to exactly proceed check for the help page. Audio book stores offer very detailed, step by step desciptions, often illustrated or even as videos, that will help you burn these files on CD.


“How can I test if my equipment will work with audio books” is an other question that is asked often. There is risk free way to find out:


Most audio book stores offer free audio books. So if you’re in doubt whether your system will be able to handle the files and whether the audio books are compatible with the equipment you own, just download one of the free books, and test it.


When you purchase an audio book, you often receive a user name and a password which allows you to download the files and prove that you are the rightful owner of these files. Like this you don’t run the risk of breaking the law. Such audio books have been licensed for sale and have been approved by the publishers and copyright holders. As a paying customer you are entitled to download and listen to these files as often as you wish and on whatever equipment you wish. You can also copy the audio books on CD as backup for yourself and your family. However, like for any other media, it would be illegal to make copies of the files and distribute them widely.


The length of time it will take for an audio book to download will vary greatly depending on what kind of Internet connection you have. Often the audio books are split into several smaller files or parts, especially if the recordings are several hours of listeing pleasure. If you have a broadband connection it will take just a few minutes per part. This makes it easier to download the book. Even if you are on a slow connection you can start listening to the first part whilst the other files are downloading.

How to Convert DVD Video Youtube Itunes to Zune

Below is the step by step tutorial about how to transfer DVD movies and TV shows, videos, YouTube and Google videos, iTunes DRM protected music to Microsoft Zune.

Before getting started, let’s take a look at the audio and video formats Microsoft Zune recognizes:

Audio Support
Windows Media Audio Standard (WMA) (.wma); WMA Lossless; Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) (.mp4, .m4a, .m4b, .mov); MP3 (.mp3).

Video Support
Windows Media Video (WMV) (.wmv); MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) (.mp4) Part 2 video; H.264 video; DVR-MS.

So, you see, in order to put DVD movies and TV shows, video files and YouTube and Google video onto Zune, you will need a converter that will go from DVD and video to Zune WMV or MP4 (Video) or Zune WMA or MP3 (Audio). This kind of program can only rip the DVD’s or convert the video files to your PC, however, Microsoft offers Zune users the free program called “Zune Software” to sync the media from PC to Zune. You just need to download it from its official website http://www.zune.net , where you can get the most detailed information about Zune as well.

In this tutorial, I’d like to demonstrate how to rip DVD’s and convert videos to Zune using Clone2Go DVD to Zune Converter. The reason I choose it lies in that, unlike other DVD to Zune converters that can rip only DVD movies for Zune, this DVD to Zune converter can also be used to convert regular video files to Zune. Plus, it allows you to download videos from YouTube and Google and then convert YouTube FLV videos to some format accepted by Zune. Let’s take a look at how it performs:

1. Add DVD movies or TV shows

Insert the DVD disc into the disc drive, click the Open DVD button to import it if you are going to enjoy the DVD movie on your Zune. Or if the DVD movie is saved as a folder on your computer, you need to click the Add Video button to locate that folder, which is composed of two separate folders: VIDEO_TS and AUIDO_TS. From the VIDEO_TS folder, select the .vob file to import and then click OK.

2. Import video files

You can also import videos stored on your PC by clicking the Add Video button and then click OK. The supporting formats are shown as follows:

3. Download YouTube or Google videos

If you want to enjoy online YouTube or Google videos on your Zune, click the YouTube button on the main interface. In the pop-up window, copy and paste the URLs of the YouTube videos one by one.

[img]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3021/298286**31_317b356fdf_o.jpg[/img]

There will be a list of the added YouTube videos, which will be downloaded automatically one by one. And the downloading status is clearly shown on the list. After the status of all of them indicates Completed, you can tick whichever videos you want to watch on your Zune.

After the DVD’s, videos or YouTube/Google videos are imported, you can preview it on the main interface. If you only want a clip of the DVD/video, you can drag the Start to trim and Stop to trim button to get the certain segment.

After making sure you have chosen the right profile from the Profile drop-down list, now you can click the Start Encode button to starting ripping DVD movies or TV shows, converting videos or downloading and converting online YouTube/Google videos for your Zune.

4. Convert iTunes M4P music to Zune

The music downloaded from iTunes Store is under DRM protection. In order to play it on your Zune, you need to strip the DRM off and have the iTunes protected AAC (M4P) music converted to Zune WMA or MP3 format. The easiest way is to burn the iTunes M4P playlist to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make an audio CD and then use some CD ripper software to convert the audio CD track back to MP3. And iTunes allows you to burn the protected music files to CD-R or CD-RW disc to make a standard audio CD:

A. Insert a CD-R or CD-RW disc into your CD-ROM drive. You’d better use CD-RW disc as it can be used for more than once.
B. Create a new playlist in iTunes. Add the protected songs to your playlist until you have 72 minutes of music. Click the Burn Disc button, in the pop-up window of Burn Settings, tick Audio CD from the Disc Format checkboxes. Note: You cannot select the MP3 CD option since it requires the protected music files be converted to unprotected MP3 or WMA files.
C. After the audio CD is successfully burned, insert the disc into your CD-ROM drive again. Then you can use iTunes or Windows Media Player to import the music tracks on the burned disc to MP3 or WMA files.

Just share my experience!

Video Streaming: How to Use Streaming Video

Using a streaming video is often much easier than downloading the video to one’s hard drive.  There are a number of different reasons for this.  It is especially true of individuals that are new to learning about computers and those who may not be especially familiar with how a computer works or the different components of a computer.  When considering how to use streaming video, it is much less complicated than the use of downloading videos.  If a person does not remember where they saved a video, it can be very difficult to find it later.

There are many times that the computer will pick a place for the video, and if the individual does not change the save location, they may be confused later as to where the video file went.  Compared to this, how to use streaming video is much more appealing.  There is no where to save the streaming video, so the individual who is watching it does not have to locate it later.  Streaming means that the material is always coming forth from the source. 

When it comes to streaming video, and how to use streaming video, the individual merely needs to go to the web site location of the streaming video.  From there, they will be able to click play on the streaming video player that is being used.  The file will then begin to play for the individual.  The individual will be able to pause and rewind the file just like when playing a downloaded video.  Also, since the file is already on the web site and always being streamed from the source, it takes less time to begin watching the video in most cases, since the downloading process of a video can take a long time.  This way, streaming video can save the individual time and energy.  Once the video has been played, it can be played again and it will still not take up any more time than is necessary to connect with the host that is streaming the file. 

In order to use streaming video, the individual does need to be connected to the internet the whole time, since this is where the file is coming from.  This is another difference between downloading a video clip and playing a streaming video clip.  If an individual is watching a downloaded video, the person does not need to stay connected to the internet after the file is downloaded.  They will need to be connected when the file is downloaded, but after that process is complete, whether they are connected to the internet or not, their file will still be able to be played.

These are the very simple ways in which individuals can learn how to use streaming video clips for both personal and professional reasons, as well as being able to highlight the differences between streaming video and downloaded video clips, and what each of these can do for the individual that wants to play a video clip of any source on a media or video player.

Uploading Your Videos to YouTube

Are you interested in uploading any videos that you may have made to the YouTube website?  YouTube is a website that is often referred to as a video sharing website.  It allows internet users, like you, to upload and share any videos that they have made.  With a large number of members and site visitors, having your video or videos displayed on YouTube is likely to get your videos thousands of views! 

If this is your first time uploading a video to the YouTube website, you may be wondering exactly how you can go about doing so.  The good news is that uploading videos to YouTube is a relatively easy process.  YouTube not only gives you step-by-step instructions on how to upload your videos, but they also provide you with video uploading tips; tips that will not only make it possible for your videos to be uploaded, but tips that will also help to improve their quality.

If you have used YouTube before, even just to watch videos, you likely already know that you need to have a YouTube account before you can start uploading and sharing your videos.  Registering for you a YouTube account is not only free, but it is also easy.  You only need to answer a few personal questions.  For instance, you are asked your name, your zip code, the country you live in, your email address, your birth date, and your gender.  Once you submit the registration form, you will be sent a verification email. Once you have followed the instructions in that email, you should be able to start uploading videos to YouTube right away.

Before uploading your video to the YouTube website, you will need to get it on your computer.  Once you have done so, you will want to review it. This can be done with a movie editing software program.  Should you wish to edit your video before submitting it to YouTube, now is the time to do so.  When editing your YouTube video or saving it, YouTube encourages to you save it as a .Divx or .Xvid file.  They also suggest making sure that your audio is in the .mp3 format.  Once you have officially saved your video on your computer, you can begin to upload it to the YouTube website.

The first step is to make sure that you are signed into your YouTube account.  Once you are, you will need to click on the “Upload Videos,” link, which can be found at the top of the YouTube website.  You will then be brought to a page where you will be asked to describe your video. YouTube requests that you are descriptive as possible.  Once you have entered in as much information about your video as you can, you will then need to click on the “Go Upload a File,” link.  This will allow you to select a file from your computer; the file that contains your recently saved video.  Once you have selected the right video, your video will automatically start uploading, after have confirmed your actions.

Speaking of the uploading process, you will find that the amount of time it takes for your video to upload to the YouTube website will vary.  The larger your video file size is, the longer it will take for your video to upload to the YouTube website. In all honesty, YouTube states that it could only take a few minutes, but that it could also take as long as an hour.  In addition to the size of your video file, the type of internet connection you have will also have an impact on your upload times. For instance, if you have a dialup internet connection, it will take longer for your videos to upload than it would if you had DSL or cable internet. 

YouTube states that within twenty-four hours of your video being uploaded, your video should appear listed under the correct category, as well as appear in YouTube video searches.  This is when your videos will start seeing the most views, as many internet users search for videos that meet their interests.

Audio Book Rental Services – A Great Facility For The Commuter

No matter if you are facing a long road trip with squirming children, a long and boring commute on a daily basis, or some other situation when you know you will be “stuck” in waiting mode of some kind, then there is no doubt that having access to an interesting and entertaining audio book or two can help make the time go by more pleasantly. In this day of all things internet, it should come as no surprise that there are many websites that provide audio book rental memberships. These membership sites give you access to a huge and always growing collection of all kinds of them on CD or MP3 format versions that you can download.


There are quite a variety of rental services to be found online. Some of these rental services charge a fee each month, while others have an annual fee that you must pay in order to become a member and have access to their audio books on CD or their downloads, depending on your preference.


Audio book rental services have a huge library of titles that you can choose from and generally work in a similar fashion to Netflix, which introduced DVD rentals online. One you purchase a membership to the rental service you will log in and make a list of the titles that you want to listen to and then indicate the order you would like to receive them in.


Next, the rental service will send the titles that are highest on your priority list if they are available at that time. If you choose a new audio book release that is very popular, then you might not receive it right away even if it is in the first position of chosen audio books on your list. For your first shipment, you will receive the audio books that are highest on your list if they are in stock at the time you set up your account.


When you receive your audio book titles from the rental service, you will also have a postage paid return envelop for each of the audio books so that you can send them back individually, as you are finished with each one. As soon as you send one back, another one will be sent out to you from the audio books on your list. In this way, you will always have at least one audio book on hand to listen to while others are being returned, processed, and while new audio book selections are being sent out to you.


Most of these companies have different subscription levels that you can choose from that will allow you to have anywhere from one audio book to four audio books rented at any one time. The fewer audio books you have at a time, the lower your monthly or yearly fee will be.


While the cheapest way to go is to only have one audio book rental at a time, most people prefer to have a subscription that allows them to have at least two audio books available to them. This allows them to have one book rental that they can listen to while the other one is being returned.


For people who travel a great deal, or spend a lot of time commuting, or for families, the plans that allow four, or even more audio book rental titles to be rented at a time can make more sense. Some companies allow you to change your plan from month to month; therefore, if you want some extra books to take on a long vacation you can do that and then switch to a lower plan when you return from vacation.

Mike Selvon portal offers free articles on audio books. Find out more about audio book rental services, and leave a comment at the audio book reviews blog where a free gift awaits you.

How to Make a Video Sharing Website Like Youtube

Who will read this article: If you have interest on running your video hosting services, you wanna create your own video sharing site on Linux server with thousands upon thousands of visitors and video clips hosted just like YouTube, iFilm, Break or other famous video sharing sites do, this tutorial may tell you how to make the first step.

1. What is YouTube?

—————From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

YouTube is a video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips. YouTube was created in mid-February 2005 by three former PayPal employees. The San Bruno-based service uses Adobe Flash technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos.

2. How to design YouTube Website?

To design a website like YouTube, there are 3 main tools that you have to use. They are Web design software like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and tools for active page development; sever-based video to flash video converter like Adobe® Flash® Media Interactive Server 3; flash video player maker like Moyea Web Player Pro. Then I would like to show you how to design a YouTube website step-by-step.

Firstly, to design a website, we have to use some web design tools. Currently, Dreamweaver and FrontPage are commonly used by most web designers. You can streamline your development workflow by creating and editing images in Fireworks and flash works in Adobe Flash CS3 or CS4 Professional, and then import them directly into Dreamweaver. You have to develop customer interaction system, like login, logout and register system, upload system, database system to store the information of customers and videos uploaded by customers, which require active page technique, like ASP.NET, PHP, Java, etc. You can use PHP code to handle the active page, Linux Apache server as your server and MySQL Database as your database system. You have to install all these tools in the machine and set up the development environment correctly to make sure they work right together.

Secondly, after the web page completed, because it is sure that the videos uploaded by people would be much unorderly, then YouTube must contain a video to flash video (.flv) converter that can convert all kinds of video files which are uploaded by all customers to flash video (.flv) format file; YouTube needs software which can make these video files standardization including format standardization, size standardization, WxH standardization, etc. More important, this software must have the ability of contain any numbers of video files that are uploaded by the people all over the world to flash video (.flv) file. Meanwhile, this software must have the ability of crop and trim video files.

As far as I know, Adobe® Flash® Media Interactive Server 3 can complete these tasks. Adobe® Flash® Media Interactive Server 3 software has the unique combination of powerful streaming media capabilities and a flexible environment for creating and delivering interactive social media applications to the broadest possible audience. So Adobe® Flash® Media Interactive Server 3 is great if you can afford it. However I think there are plenty of other solutions to accomplish the same end goal.

Last but not the least, there must have a flash video (.flv) player that can play the videos uploaded by all people. Therefore, YouTube needs a flash video player maker to make a flash video player to play these flash video files. However, there are some basic requirements to the flash video player maker. The generated flash video player has to play any number of flash videos with a single flash video player, as it is impossible that one player plays only one flash video file. It has to be with scrollable thumbnail play list, and so on.

To this point, Moyea Web Player Pro can do that, I also use it on my own website. It is a multifunctional flash video player maker. With it, you can design your own player user interface and create a scrollable thumbnail play list, you can add advertisements to the flash videos. It is a pretty interesting program. The generated flash video player can add single or multiple videos in many formats to website. The flash video player supports playback of video formats that the Adobe Flash Player can handle, such as FLV, MOV, MP4, 3GP, 3G2 and H264.

However, it is very complicated to fully realize functions of YouTube. I am sorry for not being able to  write all details on it. I hope this article can function as a general guide.

Videos Online – How to Make Online Profits Using Videos

Videos are great viral marketing tools that can attract a lot of traffic to your web site. They are similar to how article marketing is used to boost traffic to your web site. It is used not only as a marketing tool, but also as a tool for teaching online. Whatever its purpose is, business videos are great for supporting your marketing scheme, and is an effective way of advertising your website, enticing your audience to visit.

Ways of Profiting from Online Videos

A way to increase conversions and boost online profits, after driving traffic to your web site, can be done through the use of live video broadcasts, video emails, or video on demand infomercials by online businesses. This can add to the bottom line of your company.

People generally remember 10% of what they read and 20% of what they hear; but with the use of videos online, people can remember 50% of what they both see and hear together. People need time to process things before they can act on your message, that is why videos can help you increase their level of processing on what they see and hear, increasing your chances for profit.

Video broadcasts can also increase the response rate of people. If a call to action is actively delivered, with sincere enthusiasm and passion for your topic, then it is much easier to follow since they are especially more powerful action drivers.

Your time of building a relationship with your customers is also dramatically shortened since you can cut through the technological barriers of the internet, putting yourself online, allowing the people you do business with to know, like, and trust you better.

You can avoid spending unnecessary high costs for sending someone on the road to meet with your clients or to attend a meeting. The technology is readily available, and the effects of your savings are immediate and obvious.

You can also enjoy ‘soft’ cost savings that dwarf your hard dollar travel costs by sparing yourself the productivity drain and the physical and mental tolls travel takes on your employees, or even yourself.

How to Market Your Videos for the Most Traffic

Videos, when used effectively, can be a vital tool in improving your online business by using it as a marketing tool, such as advertising for your web sites. This can help entice your net audiences to do business with your company, depending on how effective it is as a marketing tool for boosting your site’s traffic.

One way of doing so is by taking advantage of free broadcasting. There are a lot of social networking web sites, as well as video broadcasting websites, that reach millions of visitors every day. You can take advantage of the sites’ free traffic and networking by uploading your videos to these web sites.

Use your video blogs to provide useful information to your visitors, just the same as when writing on a blog. You can pattern your videos to follow certain formats, such as a TV show, infomercials, or how-to videos, as long as you work around a topic that ties in your business. If your video is creative and useful, it has a higher chance of getting passed around to other people.

Do not forget to include your web site’s URL when editing the video. Place your web site’s URL somewhere during the playback. If possible, try to keep your web site’s URL on display or visible throughout the entire video. Placing it along the bottom of the screen is preferable, but at least display your web site’s URL at the beginning or the end of the video.

How to Make a Successful Video

Creating a quality business video for your online business is a difficult task, not to mention expensive. You need to make sure that you create the best video that will accomplish your goals.

One way of doing this is by determining the purpose for your video. Define the exact purpose of the video and state that up front to prevent the person watching the video from getting confused, especially if there are too many information packed into the video. You must have a single idea that you are trying to convey in your marketing video to avoid packing it with too much information.

Determine your target audience before making the video. Make your video pitch for whatever your target audience is. If your product is for the home, then let your advertisement pitch for the home. If it is more for the tech savvy, then you may need to use a different approach on the video. Keep in mind that your videos will be used by your online business to market potential customers, so make sure that your video will explain the virtues of a product by the company.

Make sure that your marketing videos are not overly lengthy. Keep the flow of information brief and to the point. Once somebody has decided to purchase or would like more information, then you could give them longer videos that will cover the details; otherwise, give information in small chunks.

The content of your video must be interesting in order to keep the audience’s attention, so you can get your message across. Some videos use humor and sex appeal, while others do not. If these are not what your video is aiming for, then focus back on your targeted audience and determine what they would appreciate from a video. Keep your information fresh and appealing to them.

You need to make sure that the audience can remember what they saw long after the video. Make the content interesting, yet memorable.

Videos are great marketing tools, especially for online businesses, since it can act like an advertisement for them. Making it accessible online makes it more prominent to your audience, especially if you carefully place it on certain web sites that can maximize its productivity.

Add Video to Websites – Where to Publish Your Video Online

Got Video? What can video do for your business? People love to watch video. TV. Movies. And of course, online video. Ever here of YouTube? People want to be entertained. The key to utilizing video in your business is to learn how to educate your customers and prospects while entertaining them. So once you have such a video, what do you do with it? Do you try and distribute it yourself or do you hire a professional to do it for you. There are lots of companies and websites that will help you distribute your web video. But how do you know what’s right for you and your company?

One path to web video success will be to hand your finished video over to an internet advertiser who will advise you on where and when to place your video on the web. There are a number of distribution channels, both paid and free. If you currently use an online advertiser like Google, and you are having some success with banner ads or pay per click ads, you may want to do your video advertising on these same websites. And as always, you will want to test the video ads against your other forms of advertising to see how effective your video advertising is.

When you go this route, there are different types of video ads of which you should be aware. Some pop up and just start playing the minute you hit the ad while others have a “play” button that requires interaction with your visitor. I would advise you to opt for the second option to have the potential customer play the video instead of it just playing to see if they are really interested in the video and your message. Of course, as with any change to your website, test multiple versions of your pages and see how your traffic responds to each of the versions.

You will still need some copy around the video to convey the subject of your video. One way to accomplish this is start your video with a still shot of what your video is about along with a call to action. For instance, your opening slide on the video might say, “If you want to learn more about how to get the coolest blue widgets and at the lowest price, click here.” That should prompt them to click and start your video message. The advantage of video advertising as opposed to banners or pay-per-click listings is that your visitors will likely not hit the ad by accident, costing you a fortune in pay per click advertising.

There are pitfalls with using internet advertising companies. Many web publishers, in order to gain profit from ads that they place on their site from Google and other sources, use tricks to get clicks on the video ads. You do not want this. You are paying for clicks on your video so that you can continue further develop your business and increase your profit margins, not put more cash in the pockets of other websites. Make sure you monitor for this kind of activity on the sites on which you are advertising. Some such tricks include moving objects that often get clicked, close to where the ads are in the hope that the visitor will click on the ad by mistake. The visitor will of course get annoyed. This does nothing for your business. You can block certain websites when you use Google and certain other advertising channels online.

There option would be to place your video on your company website. Either hire someone that can create a video for you, or make your own. This will all depend on your budget for advertising. But there are plenty of individuals and companies out there that would love the opportunity to do this sort of work. You may actually be surprised that the cost is quite affordable.

Depending upon what type of site you have and what you are promoting, you may want to make a home made video. Sometimes these can be more appealing than the slick, professional videos and people may relate more to them and actually want to watch them. Remember, people want to do business with, and interact with, other people. Just look at the popularity of YouTube, which features just such homemade videos. There is usually something that resonates more with people in a home made video that actually may generate more trust within your customer.

Come up with a plan today on how much you can spend. Then decide if you want to outsource to a professional for video production or if you want to make it yourself.

Video Games Suppliers or Video Games Distributors For Business?

Video games suppliers were already doing business in the internet without video games distributors during the early years of the video game business in the internet. During those early years there were only two players in the video games business: the video games suppliers and the video games retailers. The video games retailers were only those who had website stores and sold video games to online clients supplied to them by suppliers.

Originally, suppliers of these video games were usually the marketing department of the company that made the video games. As the competition for the production of new video games and its marketing heated, affiliated companies involved in the manufacture of video games began to realize that they can save more if they just concentrate in video games production and let other middlemen do the marketing for them. A perfect example of leverage and delegation for sure!

This concept gave birth to the wholesale distributorship of video games. Soon, wholesale video games distributors were already the ones supplying the video games need of both the online and offline retail outlets.

With this set up, wholesale distributors will purchase from the video games suppliers or maker of the video games the finished products and will be the ones to distribute them to their respective retailer outlets at wholesale prices. Depending on their arrangement with suppliers, the cost of marketing tools like stickers, leaflets, posters and even TV and print media ads will either be shouldered by supplier or wholesale distributor.

Some knockout differences between the two and things you should know about how they conduct their business most of the time. In Terms of Ownership: Suppliers are usually the sales department of a firm engaged in the production or bulk distribution for some companies for video games.

Originally, they were supposed to be tasked the marketing and distribution of their products, but to save on cost, they are now mainly the servicing department for privately owned wholesale distributors who would purchase their products in bulk orders and distribute them to online and offline retailers at wholesale prices. Thus, suppliers are owned by the manufacturer of goods while distributors are privately owned firms that buy goods in bulk from the supplier.

In Terms of Function: In most cases, video games distributors have exclusive contracts with suppliers that would make distributors the only firm to market the video game products of their company. As such, suppliers will have only to sell direct to the wholesale distributors.

On the other hand, wholesale distributors will be the one who will function to market the products they bought from the suppliers. Their distribution of the video game products will include both online and offline retail.

In terms of effort, it is the wholesaler distributor who is tasked with the burden in making sure that the video games will be popular with players. But in terms of profit, he also has the most to gain because of the volume of transaction that he handles among the video game retailers that he supplies.

In a sense, video game distributors have the freedom to be retailers as an additional option to maximize profitability while video game suppliers would be more than happy seeing their products well marketed by video game distributors. So what is better for you may be the next question you may ask perhaps?
