Soundwise: A new way to sell audiobooks

Published: May 5, 2022

We’ve just published three new audiobooks for our authors to give them another way to reach readers.

Each one is a big project: For one thing, you have to find the right voice, suitable for the topic and the tone of the book. So far, we’re used professional voice actors – or four of them in the case of The Collective Wisdom of High-Performing Women. But it doesn’t have to be that way. One of our authors, Douglas Cole, will be going into the studio later this spring to read his upcoming book, The Sales MBA. I’ll interview him after to see what that was like.

These audiobooks are sold on Audible. But what if you want to sell audiobooks in bulk – at a conference, for example? That’s not easy on Audible, so we’ve come up with a great solution for bulk buys: the Soundwise app.

Now you can sell as many audiobooks as you want by giving clients an access code. Then they can download the book to whatever device they want to listen to their book.

It’s yet another great offering from Barlow Books. Take a look here.

The Invisible Rules has been selected by the Globe and Mail as one of the best business books of the year.
