Amazon Increases Online Content With Podcasts Series
Amazon.com has officially launched its Amazon Podcasts network, an original podcast series offering customers four unique channels of free content—Amazon BookClips, Music You Should Hear, Significant Seven and Amazon Wire—available at Amazon.com.
The company is planning on offering several additional channels in the coming months to reach what it calls its customers’ increasing demand for rich content related to the products they shop for every day on Amazon.com.
Amazon BookClips is a weekly podcast offering customers a free sneak preview at some of what the company considers the most popular soon-to-be released audio books.
Significant Seven is a monthly podcast where editors from Amazon.com talk about what they think are seven of the most exciting upcoming books before they are released. Each book featured in the Significant Seven will be discounted 40 percent for a limited time.
Amazon Wire is a biweekly podcast featuring interviews with authors, actors, directors and musicians.
“Amazon Podcasts offers customers exclusive content and interviews they won’t find anywhere else,” said Kristi Coulter, senior manager of editorial at Amazon.com. “Amazon is continually finding ways to improve the service we provide to our millions of customers. Thanks to this new and innovative podcast series, listeners can get more exclusive information about the artists, authors and actors they love.”
