With all of the buzz about OverDrive’s audiobook apps for BlackBerry, Android, Windows Mobile, and now the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, it’s time we talk about using the reports in Content Reserve to evaluate use and circulation from your mobile website. A mobile version of your website enables any user with a web-enabled device access to browse and check out titles anytime, anywhere. If you’re already familiar with the reporting tools, using the reports to review mobile website usage, is very similar.
The ‘Activity Chart’, ‘Turnover Rate Chart’, ‘Current Waiting List’, ‘Waiting List History’, and ‘Traffic’ reports all generate the same information for your mobile website as they do for your standard website. Simply select ‘mobile’ under the drop down option for each report. Login to Content Reserve and see what you find!
To boost your statistics, contact the Partner Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on promoting mobile downloads. And don’t forget to visit our online marketing kit for standard promotional materials.
