As you may have heard, a new consumer-facing IndieBound website has been launched.
Extending the reach of IndieBound’s current trade-focused campaign, the site is uniquely positioned as the antidote to algorithm-based, chart-led, celebrity-endorsed book recommendations; a forum where book lovers can share their passion for books and use the expertise of real booksellers to discover inspiring new reads. This is strongly supported by social media activity, predominantly on Facebook, where readers can ask for personalised recommendations from booksellers.
Booksellers are encouraged to continue submitting recommendations throughout the year, and help answer requests for advice on Facebook.
Visit the site www.indiebound.co.uk
or the Facebook page to take partwww.facebook.com/IndieboundUK
Also you can interact with and follow the site on Twitter @IndieBoundbooks
Not only is this a great opportunity to promote your bookshop (as each shop will be credited for its recommendation), it’s a fantastic chance to demonstrate your expert knowledge!
Booksellers can submit as many recommendations as they wish online atwww.indiebound.co.uk
