Buyback is an important way for students and their families to manage the cost of education, but it can be a hectic time for every school — especially if you don't take the time to prepare early on.
Submit your adoption lists early
The earlier you get adoptions in to MBS Direct, the sooner we can determine how many titles you'll need for your next term. As a result, this makes it more likely that your students will get better value at buyback and more options for the following term. Eight weeks ahead of your store opening is typically the ideal time to submit your list in order to get your students the best buyback value and the most used titles for their next term.
Use your marketing tools
Marketing is made simple for MBS Direct's partners. You have dozens of ready-made marketing materials available at your fingertips, including posters, emails and social media posts. Just log into the MBS Direct Marketing site and pick out what you need to promote your buy.
Remind your students about Guaranteed Buyback
Make sure students remember to take advantage of MBS Direct’s Guaranteed Buyback program by selling back any book they own that has Guaranteed Buyback value. If they participate in this program, they will receive the exact price they were promised when they first bought their book, providing them with upfront cost-savings. If students can't remember if they bought qualifying titles, don't worry: So long as they use the same login information to create their quote that they used to order their course materials, their quote information will automatically populate and inform them of any Guaranteed Buyback titles they own.
