Libro.fm, the digital audiobook company that partners with indie bookstores, is currently in the midst of this year’s Summer Listening Challenge, which lets listeners enjoy summer activities and support their local indie at the same time.
Those who finish the challenge, which ends September 2, can take advantage of discount offers, and participants who take the extra step to visit their local bookstore can get a free audiobook. As a bonus, everyone who submits the challenge form will be entered to win a grand prize.
In addition, Libro.fm’s #AudiobookSwitch initiative encourages listeners to switch their membership from their current audiobook provider to Libro.fm and get three audiobooks for the price of one; listeners can buy three audiobooks for $14.99 using the code “SWITCH.”
Libro.fm’s Mark Pearson reported that on Amazon’s Prime Day, it had the highest number of Libro.fm audiobook membership sign-ups over a two-day period in its history.
“This year we used Prime Day to tell a story about the audiobook curation and community offered through local bookstores. As a result, we had a record number of customers switch from Amazon’s Audible to a local bookstore,” Pearson said.
Finally, as part of a new promotion in partnership with Libro.fm, Hachette Audio has selected a list of audiobook titles to commemorate its 25 years in existence, All 25 audiobooks — one per year of books published between 1994 to 2019 — will be on sale for $10 during the month of July only.
Libro.fm is fully integrated with IndieCommerce, and a co-branded storefront is fast, free, and easy to set up. For more information about creating a storefront, contact email@example.com. Learn more here about all Libro.fm promotions happening this summer.
