BookWhirl.com premiers the Refer an Author Program, and discusses their acquired Better Business Bureau rating.

Online PR News – 23-September-2009 – – FITCHBURG, WI (09/23/2009) – BookWhirl.com, one of the leading frontiers of the book marketing industry launches the Refer an Author Program, another beneficial feature for all self-published authors. This is a new program from BookWhirl.com that would help encourage and flourish the publishing industry.

The Refer an Author Program is created for BookWhirl.com’s former and existing clients. Its primary purpose is to extend gratitude and promote the company’s affordable marketing services to other self-published authors.

The Refer an Author Program benefits former and existing clients through a 10% discount reward when referrals decide to sign up for any service. But the rewards don’t end there. Referred authors will also receive a reward of 100 Online Directory Listings at no extra charge. Both benefits are simultaneously rewarded every successful referral.

Through the 10% discount, clients can already trim their book marketing budget and save up on costs. While new and referred clients can enjoy further web exposure through the free Online Directory Listing service.

BookWhirl.com is still in the process of being accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). However, the company was able to attain a B+ rating from the BBB last April 2009. Better Business Bureau is a corporation that gathers and report information about business reliability. It acts as a mutually trusted intermediary between consumers and business to resolve questions on validity.

Accoring to the official website of Better Business Bureau, a rating of B+ is equivalent to an 87-89.99 rating. As stated on their website, “This rating represents BBB’s degree of confidence the business is operating in a trustworthy manner and will make a good faith effort to resolve any customer concerns”.

The rating is based by the following 17 elements: Type of Business, Time in Business Competency Licensing, Complaint Volume, Unanswered Complaints, Unresolved Complaints, Serous Complaints, Complaint Analysis, Complaint Resolution Delayed, Failure to Address Complaint Pattern, Government Action, Advertising Review, Background Information, Clear understanding of business, Mediation/arbitration, Accredited Business Status, and Revocation.

As BBB further stated, “Grades are determined by awarding and deducting points for each element and then looking at the resulting score as a percentage of the highest score attainable (“perfect” score).”
