Reader's Legacy Decides to Give Away 100,000 Physical Books


Reader's Legacy launches 100,000 book giveaway in the month of February

(PRWEB) February 22, 2016

Five years ago the idea of Reader's Legacy was born.

Created to be a hybrid online community for literature lovers, Reader's Legacy gives authors, readers and publishers a chance to connect in a social environment, and also doubles as one of the world's largest online bookstores.

Reader's Legacy's first-to-market advantage rests in its unique affinity program. Members of the community receive LitCoins for social media interaction, buying books and referring new members. February will be remembered as the month momentum began.

On February 1st the company decided to give every new user 40,000 LitCoins for joining. 40,000 LitCoins is enough credit to purchase a physical book. The company decided to take a page out of PayPal's playbook. At their launch, the online banking giant gave new users a $10 credit. It worked for PayPayl and it's working for Reader's Legacy.

10,000 new users in 2 week period, average users are spending more than 10 minutes on the website. And viewing between 8-12 pages. Sunday 2/21 there were over 700 new users.

When the company's CEO and Founder, Ken Dunn, was asked what he attributes the growth to, he said, "We have always known that Reader's wanted a special community to connect with others who love the same books. It has taken us 3 long years to build the platform to the point that it is now. Giving all of our new users a free book was a key movement for a company. We are confident that we will surpass 10 million users in the next 12-18 months."
