SEOUL, Jan.4 (Korea Bizwire) – It has become possible to let people know about the release of one’s own book through the use of smartphones.
Aladdin, the online book store, announced that it started an ‘Online Book Launching Party’ service so that a publisher can advertise their own book to friends and acquaintances.
After registering as a ‘writer member’ on Aladdin (www.aladin.co.kr), one can select the book they want to publicize and send out online invitations to acquaintances’ smartphones.
The writer can send a short introduction about the book through the invitation. Those who receive the invite can write messages to congratulate the writer and even buy a copy right away.
The contents of the books bought through the online book party can be discovered right away.
The service doesn’t have the limitation of time and space, and has the upper hand when it comes to costs, as the service is provided for free.
