As discoverability becomes more important and publishers struggle to capture the relationships with their readers, there is a distinct trend toward publishers selling books and eBooks directly to consumers on their own websites.
Direct to consumer sales offer publishers many benefits, including:
Firebrand’s Direct2Reader solution is tightly integrated with our Eloquence on Demand service and requires an active Eloquence on Demand Elite subscription. The Direct2Reader platform can be implemented on any existing website, providing the file delivery your readers need.
Your EPUB and PDF files can be delivered with Adobe’s ADEPT Digital Rights Management (DRM), with a customized Social DRM, or with no DRM at all. DRM cannot be applied to Kindle files that are sold outside the Amazon store, but if you choose the no-DRM option, you can deliver Kindle files to your readers using the Direct2Reader platform as well.
Direct2Reader’s integration with Title Management and Eloquence on Demand removes the need for specialized file storage and delivery mechanisms on your website, and the integrated DRM options remove the costly fees associated with licensing and maintaining those systems yourself.
