The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 12, 9:41 PM


Olivia Goldhill:  "This year, magazines are set to struggle. As readers increasingly move online, print publications far and wide should expect to lose readers. But if you can’t beat them, join them—and by the looks of decades-old magazines sharing their content on Instagram, that’s exactly what several historic publications intend to do."

Dorothea Martin's curator insight, September 3, 2013 3:10 AM

Readmill, the social reading experience and book marketing on a whole new level:

“We thought that there was a huge potential in taking what Goodreads had done on social on the web for books, but doing that for a mobile integrated reading experience,” says Berggren. “So instead of having to read your book and then think, ‘Okay, now I have to go to Goodreads, find it there, add it to my profile, and write my review,’ we just wanted to let you share and review from inside of the book.”

“Authors and publishers get access to a dashboard where they can see the engagement matrix of a specific book and see how many people that start reading the book actually finish it, how long it takes, if they recommended it to friends, and how much they shared throughout that experience,” explains Berggren.

According to Berggren, modern publishers miss a lot of marketing opportunities for their authors because they don’t know where or when to target their marketing efforts. "

 

Carol Koechlin's curator insight, September 3, 2013 8:37 AM

Books of all kinds are often best when shared and enriched by discussions with others. Social media will make that experience available to everyone. There is great potential here for improved literacy on a global scale.

Parker Donat's curator insight, January 22, 2013 7:30 PM

For business storytelling to be a success there needs to be a good strategy around making money. Given that eBooks and apps are so popular there is a definate opportunity to tell a great story using these platfrorms to create a more engaged community. I haven't bought this book but it seems to really understand transmedia and the use of muliple patforms. And this book, Dynasty of the Magi has just won the award for Best Transmedia Project in the Publishing Innovation Awards

Histórias cada vez mais partilhadas! A autoria que não é só do autor! “When it came time to write this book, I was therefore able to write directly to my readers, because I know them so well. For me, social media dissolved the border between author and reader, replacing that border with real intimacy.”
