This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 4, Sep 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
Spotify has announced that they are adding audio books to their offering, further strengthening their position in the industry. They are already one of the leading players with offerings such as music and podcasts and now audiobooks are joining the lineup. The announcement says starting today, Spotify listeners in the US will be able to purchase and listen to more than 300,000 audiobook titles, making our platform a true all in one destination for everyone’s listening needs. Very interesting. And as ministries,anything related to the audio industry is something that we need to pay attention to because people give their ears to it and faith comes by hearing. And I also know many ministries in churches listening to me have audiobooks. So maybe it’s time for you to look at Spotify as another means of distributing the products to your audience.
