San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) August 25, 2008
PowerReviews (http://www.powerreviews.com), the Internet's most comprehensive developer of customer-review solutions for retailers and their shoppers, announced today that CyberRead (http://www.cyberread.com), an ebook seller, has chosen PowerReviews to harness the power of its customer reviews, increase sales and build stronger customer relationships.
"PowerReviews allowed us to quickly configure and integrate customer reviews of ebooks into our site," said Clint Brauer, General Manager for CyberRead. "Power Reviews will quickly become a competitive advantage for our site. Because ebooks are difficult to evaluate based on a book excerpt or description alone, we forecast that customer reviews will become one of the leading criteria in ebooks purchase decisions.

The user-generated content and community drives the highest sales uplift in the industry.
"We are thrilled to work with CyberRead, to provide relevant product reviews to their customers," said Jay Shaffer, VP, Worldwide Sales and Marketing for PowerReviews. "We know from experience that avid readers love real product feedback and are some of highest review writers themselves."
