This groundbreaking new format from Alive! eBooks Networks, transforms reading into a stimulating experience unlike any eBook on the market today. “These new types of eBooks are more fun to read, the information is easier to retain and allows authors to really bond with their readers,” explains Ruby Yeh, a pioneering new media entrepreneur from Silicon Valley and the founder of Alive! eBooks Networks.
The new Multimedia eBook offers readers an instantaneous multi-sensory experience with text, and powerful video and audio messages. This revolutionary technology, developed by Yeh, is an innovative multimedia format that differs significantly from traditional downloadable eBooks, and is available on computers and will be available on other devices like the iPad, before year-end. Readers get immediate access to free chapters of the book, a variety of audio and video clips from contributing authors, as well as gain entrance to the book’s Resource Guide, a portal to products, music, art, films, and books for the new paradigm.
Online links embedded in the Multimedia eBooks allow readers admission to a wide-ranging and impressive array of the latest information with options to explore an author’s unique perspective in depth. Working with Alive! eBooks Networks, authors can create Multimedia eBook and print book bundled packages, launch a variety of creative and effective campaigns.
Additionally, this new Multimedia eBook is good news for authors and speakers who don’t have the benefit of a large publishing house behind them and are looking for ways to generate income and build brand recognition — this technology allows them to showcase their work via videos, and to partner with affiliates and advertisers in order to generate online income without any overhead costs, which opens the gates to recruiting an army of affiliates, including bookstores, who can offer the eBook to their email lists, on their web sites and through their Social Networks. In this new model, everyone who partners with the author has an opportunity to generate income from a variety of sources, as well as up sell their higher-end services.
Alive! eBooks Networks offered their first Multimedia eBook in 2008 with the release of Law of Business Attraction. To date the company has created more than a dozen Multimedia eBooks with several more in the works. What’s fantastic about these Multimedia eBooks for authors is that no technical heavy lifting is required. Yeh and her team at Alive eBooks Networks (aliveebooks.com), do all the uploading, coach authors, and help every step of the way from recording audio to creating dynamic videos.
Debra Giusti, the presenter of Transforming Through 2012, social entrepreneur and the founder of the Harmony Festival, a three-day event held annually in June in northern California now in its 32nd year, felt that teaming with Alive! eBooks Network was the best way to give the authors involved in the book the widest exposure for their work, as well as increasing their ability to interact with readers. “Alive! Ebook Networks’ Multimedia eBook format is the first of its kind, and paves the way for a revolution in how we distribute information. It is the next step in ecologically evolving the book business so the use of trees and fossil fuels are reduced substantially, and there is no storage expense or garbage waste. I am totally inspired to be a part of this evolution.”
