Bookshout has announced that they have partnered with South by Southwest this year. Conference attendees and remote online followers will be able to purchase e-books from key speakers, authors, and panelists.
Attendees can purchase e-books exclusively through the BookShout platform. Throughout the week of SXSW, attendees will be able to text-to-buy as well as share interesting content opportunities with their Facebook and Twitter networks. Authors and sponsors will also be able to promote these opportunities to their own audiences, dramatically increasing the reach, interest, marketing, and purchasing opportunities for all.
Bookshout has thousands of e-books on their platform and has pioneered the concept of marketing their services towards businesses. Instead of a consumer focused bookstore they partner up with companies to provide coupon codes that can be redeemed online. They recently celebrated a milestone that had them distribute 9.5 million e-book coupons.
South by Southwest will be occurring March 13-22, 2015 in Austin, Texas.
