BookRix (http://www.bookrix.com/), the popular online community for authors and readers, announced today that it has added a new feature to its website - the Publisher's section. Publishing companies can use the new feature to reach out to the BookRix community of readers, authors and literature aficionados as they seek innovative ways to expand their existing client base.
Publishers are now finding they cannot ignore the social media realm and are looking for new, innovative ways to reach out to readers and writers online. BookRix can fulfill that need of many publishing houses with its customized Publisher's section.
"Having their own profile on BookRix provides the perfect means for a publishing company to introduce their authors and portfolio to our growing list of more than 70,000 active readers, inform their fans about the latest news, and publish book excerpts as well as promote their new book releases," said BookRix CEO and Founder, Gunnar Siewert. "We're expecting a tremendous, positive response from publishers beginning with this week's BookExpo America (BEA) Conference in New York."
Through the BookRix Publisher's section, publishing firms can reach new readers, expand and focus their social media usage, host writing contests in cooperation with BookRix or on their own, and embed BookRix reading samples easily into their own website or on their social media pages. As a content-oriented, social community, BookRix is just as essential for publishers and authors as MySpace is for record companies and musicians.
