DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BookShout! today announced that a number of prestigious companies, including CareerBuilder, HarperCollins Publishers, Microsoft, Startup Revolution, Wiley and others are using BookShout!’s bulk ebook distribution and fulfillment services. Available for readers on iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD/HD+ and the web, BookShout! is the only platform where publishers can fulfill digital bulk ebook distribution with DRM, white-labeled redemption pages and contact capture tools.
“BookShout!’s tools open up a number of new opportunities for Wiley’s B2B customers”
“BookShout!’s tools open up a number of new opportunities for Wiley’s B2B customers,” said Peter Balis, Vice President and Director, Business Development, Digital Books at Wiley. “This expands our ability to provide our content to a wider audience, in a digital format.”
While BookShout! does not reveal data on specific client campaigns, the company confirmed that one client received more than 50,000 ebooks to distribute to its customers as part of an incentive program, while another company bought thousands of ebooks to distribute to employees. Yet another organization used BookShout!’s tool to let event attendees choose 1 of 10 ebooks as part of their sign-up costs.
Gary Goldstein, who has produced some of Hollywood’s biggest box-office hits such as Pretty Woman, Under Siege and The Mothman Prophecies, is using BookShout! because its tools align with his own creative strategies and desire to create community.
“This is a great first step,” said Jason Illian, CEO of BookShout! “I think the future provides endless opportunities for publishers to work with brands and organizations. Imagine getting an ebook with your next pair of running shoes or when you buy lumber for a tree house. These are new sales- and audience-building opportunities for brands and lucrative distribution outlets for publishers.”
Publishers can use BookShout! to fulfill orders with emailed promotional codes, physical gift cards or embeddable links. They can also give clients the ability to create public or private groups around their books, bundle ebooks and physical books, and create innovative lead generation and incentive programs.
