  • For years, Audible, Amazon’s audiobook arm, has operated on a membership model: subscribers sign up for one of a range of monthly to annual tiers, which provides them credits that can be exchanged for individual audiobooks. (Beyond the credit system, members are also able to buy additional audiobooks at discounted prices.) Recently, the company has been branching out, partnering with fitness companies like Aaptiv and Planet Fitness gyms to expand membership offerings. Today, Audible announced that it’s adding yet another perk: members will now receive two free Audible Originals, the company’s line of original content, every month. As the audiobook and podcast market has soared in recent years, Audible has been wading into the in-house content production waters, in addition to producing and licensing audiobooks of existing works. In recent years, it’s commissioned shorter works from authors like John Scalzi as well as original books set in the Alien and X-Files universes. Members already had access to the company’s original podcasts through the Channels section of its iOS, Android, Windows 10, and Fire tablet apps. EACH MONTH, AUDIBLE WILL RELEASE A LIST OF SIX ORIGINAL TITLES TO CHOOSE FROM The new Audible Originals offering will work similarly to a book-of-the-month club: on the first Friday of each month, Audible will release a list of six original titles, from which subscribers can download two, alongside the credits that they already pick up as part of their plan The Verge So happy to see the book market on rise again.

Promote An Easy To Use, Purposeful Hashtag Have a hashtag that is easy for you as well as others to use and remember. Make sure it is there all over, like in your profile, your brochures, receipts or any other events or marketing that you do. When you are putting ads on TV, make sure you highlight the hashtag, asking people to use them. The more your hashtag is used, the more it will trend and become popular. Use it rigorously otherwise it will be lost in the ocean of millions of other tags. Build A Unique Hashtag If your hashtag is the usual boring, obvious hashtag, people will just look at it and forget. Think of something that can be catchy and conveys the messages differently. People are very creative nowadays, and one has to be on edge to be better than others. Be funny, sarcastic, romantic – whatever, but be creative and not obvious. Take Part In Viral Communications Use a good blend of some of the most popular tags as well as hashtags relevant to the topic. Blending both can have your post reach a wider audience and gain more popularity. For example, if it’s the wedding season and you are...
