Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 27, 2006
Simply Audiobooks announced the launch of Simply AudioBlog, Audiobook Review Podcasts (available on iTunes), and the Audiobook Discussion Board today, creating a roster of outreach tools to enhance the experience of current members and increase resources for audio book fans everywhere.
“We are providing a forum where anyone can voice their views, seek others’ opinions and follow discussions on topics related to audio books,” said Aileen Corr, Simply Audiobooks marketing communications manager. “Our goal is to promote a sense of community within our membership so our users can share meaningful information easily."
Fittingly, the Audiobook Discussion Board is a space where those who rent books on CD through Simply Audiobooks can talk to each other, share recommendations, and express their views. Members can exchange opinions on their favorite audio books and find others with similar tastes. The Discussion Board is also a new avenue for member support, with a two-way dialogue between staff and curious visitors, both active Simply Audiobooks members and non-members.
“Most audio book listeners are somewhat isolated in their fandom. Though the industry is growing in popularity, it’s not likely that the guy in the next cubicle will be able to make small talk about Grover Gardner’s latest performance,” said Corr. “The same way the Internet improved access to audio books, it is now making it possible to talk with people who share your interests.”
The Simply AudioBlog includes, but is not limited to, audio book discussion and comments from a variety of management and employee authors. The blog is a journal of the life and times at Simply Audiobooks and offers members a colorful insider’s view of what goes on behind the scenes.
The company’s Audiobook Review Podcasts, which are available on iTunes, offer quick, one-minute audio reviews of popular titles. “We are dealing with an audience that wants to cut straight to the point -- no muss, no fuss, and no wasted time, and that’s what we’re delivering,” added Corr.
Geared toward audio book fans who would like educated and insightful commentary on a selected title, but who do not have the time to read a lengthy review, these podcasts can be downloaded for listening on mobile devices and personal computers.
