About ReaderBound

ReaderBound is a new system designed specifically to produce feature-rich websites for book publishers. It combines an enterprise content management system with a sophisticated e-commerce platform plus a whole bunch of original engineering and other home cooking.

The product and promise of ReaderBound are one in the same: it is the easiest way for publishers to get a great website. If you want to showcase your books, engage readers, and drive direct sales online, this is the best way to do it.

But where does this shiny new system come from, you ask?

ReaderBound was made by Turner-Riggs, a leading consulting team for the publishing industry, and Mugo Web, an experienced web development studio with an extensive portfolio of clients in the US and Canada and over a decade of history with book publishers.

Together, the ReaderBound team has built some of the largest and most innovative web platforms in Canadian publishing, including 49thShelf.com and AllLitUp.ca.

Through these major national projects — as well as engagements with individual publishers and commissioned research on book discovery and consumer behaviour — we’ve had years to figure out what works and what doesn’t when it comes to online book marketing.

And we’ve poured all of those lessons into ReaderBound.

Work on the platform began in fall 2014, and it was initially piloted with two prominent Canadian publishers in 2016.

ReaderBound will be commercially released in fall 2016. If you want to know more about it in the meantime, just give us a shout. We’d be happy to chat.
