Audiobook Distributors Have Something to Live Up To
Audible.com offers strong, reliable customer support.
Those that prefer reading their literature as opposed to listening to it are in the wrong place.
An Easy Way to Read
Amazon’s foray into the audiobook market has been making waves ever since it came out in 1999. Audible.com, perhaps one of the best-known audiobook distributors in the world, promises would-be purchasers the moon, offering the latest bestselling books, read by “Hollywood’s finest” at rates that will beat their competitors. This is no small order, so Audible.com brings out the big guns as soon as you reach their homepage. Finding out exactly “How it works” is a simple matter of clicking on the identically-named button on the homepage, as is learning “about membership”. For those more interested in what Audible.com has to offer as opposed to how they offer it and for what price, visitors are shown a display of current best-sellers right on top of customer-favorites.
Looking for a more targeted query is as easy as specifying a category on the homepage or typing a title into the websites search box. Anyone having trouble figuring anything out can even take advantage of their 24-hour helpline or webchat with a representative. It’s especially impressive that they are able to get a real person available for webchat within a matter of seconds. While many websites offer visitors the opportunity to instant-message with a genuine chat bot, Audible.com is able to furnish visitors with a well spoken, polite representative that was of much help in writing this review.
Consumers can get their audiobook fix by either buying titles a la carte or subscribing to one audiobook a month for $14.95 (USD)—around 50% of the price available to non-subscribers. All things considered, however, the most useful feature of the site is its review section. Anyone who signs up is able to read and write customer reviews. This assures that people get exactly what they want.
In short, Audible.com has earned its place as the world’s leading audiobook distributors. Not only do they have a strong customer support structure, but their site is easily navigable, their selection is enormous, and their prices a steal.
