Washington, DC — In the latest trend for promoting books and connecting with readers, Emily Giffin, author of Where We Belong, conducted an intimate telephone discussion with her fans. The event – a TeleForum™ powered by Broadnet – offered Giffin’s readers a live conversation with their favorite author about her characters, her life and the story behind the story.
The publishing industry and book promotion efforts are dependent on digital and social media more than ever. With readers becoming more interested in making a personal connection with their favorite authors, this type of event has the potential to supplant the traditional book tour as we know it. It is a cost-effective and time-efficient way for authors to connect with readers across the country.
Broadnet conducts hundreds of these types of events every day – for politicians, sports franchise teams, and other organizations.
The company’s technology connects thousands of people by phone to a live conversation in a matter of seconds. Participants can ask questions, respond to poll questions and use social media to invite their friends to join the discussion. The Emily Giffin TeleForum took place on August 12th and included two polls asking fans to name their favorite characters from her novels. The results were tabulated and shared immediately for all to discuss.
Since 2004, Broadnet has conducted more than 10,000 TeleForum™ events connecting more than 54 million people – including more than 200,000 on a single call.
