Is Publishing Dead? Wubbit’s Founder Says No
“Wubbit’s technology helps to minimize touch points and movement of the product before it is shipped to the end user,” says Loomer. “What’s more, we feel the book industry is only the tip of the iceberg. The Wubbit.com platform can help dozens of other industries cut costs and minimize touch points through the distribution process. In fact, we have already been contacted by other companies outside the publishing world, and we will be making our software platform available to them—further proof that the Wubbit system really works!”
“Our goal at Wubbit is to connect customers, authors and bookstores,” says Loomer. “By basing our business model on this goal, Wubbit also puts the power currently held by retailers and distributors back into the hands of the publishers. The growing popularity of e-books and e-readers is already shaking up the publishing industry. There is absolutely no reason why it can’t use that spirit of change to rethink its business model, re-energize itself, and restore itself to its past prosperity. With Wubbit, anything can happen!”
