Zola is an eBooks retailer embedded in a social network, enabling readers to better discover, purchase, enjoy and share eBooks.
Zola also aggregates and aligns the interests of eBook value-adders: readers, authors, publishers, indie bookstores, reviewers, bloggers, magazines, social networks, and book clubs; so we serve the eBook industry through better revenue shares, affiliate fees, and direct access to customers through email and real-time sales data (missing from current Amazon/B&N practice, forcing marketers to drive blind.)
Zola has exclusive books from bestselling authors that will bring 1 M customers in our first year - we have more bestselling authors committed to sell through Zola than Amazon!
When you buy a book on Zola you can read it any device, including a Kindle or a Nook, so consumers are not locked into a platform.
Zola also has three recommendation types: social (like Spotify), algorithmic (like Netflix), and expert curators (like OpenSky).
Zola is transforming the eBook ecosystem in radical and exciting ways - we are primarily author owned, and we are a tech startup; we bring together publishers, authors, readers, independent bookstores, book clubs, reviewers, bloggers and others to make the eBook business a rich and healthy ecosystem where everybody wins.
We're looking for people with tons of energy and commitment, who want to make a fast, beautiful, cross-platform, profitable, and deeply meaningful business.
