Audiobooks “spotted” streaming

File this one under “innovative promotional ideas.”

After uploading his title to ACX through our DIY workflow, author Craig Seymour submitted the completed audiobook to Spotify, the popular online music listening and sharing app (Seymour chose non-exclusive distribution on ACX). This creative strategy got the attention of Mediabistro, thereby gaining Seymour’s audiobook even more exposure. In this interview with GalleyCat, Seymour explains why he decided to promote his audiobook on Spotify and details the process of adding content to the music service.

Have any other rights holders out there tried this? Anyone have other great promotional ideas? Tell us in the comments!
