Barnes & Noble
Barnes & Noble College Marketing report says television is the most effective form of advertising for college students. The study also found that 55% of students say Facebook is not the best targeting platform.
Barnes & Noble will launch a campaign on Nov. 14 to promote the Nook tablet that will be the "largest campaign in Barnes & Noble history," Barnes & Noble CEO William Lynch said on Nov. 7 during a company event in New York.
Google's just launched eBookstore, which made available approximately 3 million digital books from more than 4,000 publishers, will be a boon for the nascent e-tablet market, according to industry experts. It could also usher in ad-supported book publishing.
Barnes & Noble released its latest e-reader iPhone application August 17. The retailer also rebranded the iPhone application under the 'Nook' banner, the same name used for the bookseller's dedicated e-reading device.
If Barnes & Noble indeed puts itself up for sale, who might emerge as the new owner of America's biggest bookstore chain? The two names being tossed around most often already own stock in the company.
