CDI launches Amazon Slayer – Offering Hope to Publishers
March 12th, 2012 – Jerusalem, Israel
Publishers have come to realize exactly what a brave new world digital marketing of eBooks really means. While it is true that sales have dramatically increased with the giant outlets like Amazon, Google eBooks, and Apple, the price that the publishing houses are paying is only now becoming clear.
“Everyone has bought a book on Amazon,” says CDI’s CEO Itzhak Levit, “but do you know anybody who did a search using the publisher’s name, probably not. People search by title, author’s name or content but the name of publishers are quickly being forgotten and made insignificant.”
Actually it is worse than that. Publishers lose a serious piece of the pie with each book sale after the giant’s take their commissions. Also, the giants are not forthcoming with customer data.
CDI’s Amazon Slayer is not really designed to slay Amazon or any of the other giants but to enable the publishers to regain their stake in the market. With CDI’s “white label” technology offer publishers can have a website of their own that has all the features the giants provide and even more.
“From start to finish,” says Mr. Levit, “publishers can create eBooks simply with a WORD of PDF file. No need for fancy formatting or special programing. From there they can earn 100% of the sale as well as gain customer data which they can then use in more direct marketing efforts.”
He also added, “It is our homegrown SEO embedded into our platform that means everything for our clients. We have repeatedly shown results that our client’s books on sites have ranked even above Amazon, Apple and Google!”
Amazon Slayer operates on a combination of CDI’s NetIS platform together with CDI’s partners in Singapore, eBooks Systems, who provide a sophisticated digital book format that allows readers to effortless ‘flip’ through their reading material.
Some of its many features include:
• Author’s freedom – Authors can control their own content, set their own prices, post their speaking tours and more without taxing the publishers with tedious detailed work.
