Wordsmith Media, Inc. Announces Strong Media Sales and New Operational Objectives 'The Last Word' Highly Ranked at Amazon.com
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wordsmith Media, Inc. (OTC Pink: WDIS) today announced the 'The Last Word on the Assassination,' a documentary produced by five-time Emmy Award-winning television host, John Barbour, and distributed by Wordsmith Media, Inc., has achieved media sales ranking in the Amazon top 100 Best-Sellers for documentaries since its release on March 11, 2014.
Several high profile media personalities have commented on the documentary including, Richard Belzer, actor from Law & Order: SVU, who stated, "'The Last Word on the Assassination': [is] the ultimate irrefutable Truth revealed once and for all." The product is available in DVD, digital download and rental formats at Amazon.com and Amazon Instant Video: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IXQV34U/ .
Wordsmith Media, Inc. has also initiated a comprehensive operational plan to re-launch printed magazines, including its award-winning flagship product, Sacred History Magazine, and Pub & Ale Magazine in the U.K. In recent years, much of the industry considered print publications passe, giving way to digital media, but the emerging general consensus is that specialty magazines have not suffered the same kind of market loss as printed newspapers where their consumers now prefer information digitally. In light of this revelation, larger brands like Newsweek magazine have recently resumed print publication recognizing the high profit potential of subscriptions. Some in the industry have referred to the public's reaction as a form of 'digital fatigue' as a result of having smart phones, tablets and computers as a main source of information and entertainment.
"We are excited to have the industry confirm what we have believed all along relating to print publications," stated Eric Jordan, President of Wordsmith Media, Inc. "It's a wonderful break to read thoughtful and intriguing articles in print, complete with Wordsmith's award-winning artwork and graphics; never in need of a power source. We are confident the market for such publications will be there for years to come," Jordan concluded.
In addition, the company began the process in 2013 to launch a magazine throughout the U.S. entitled, Doctor's Journal, for waiting rooms in medical facilities covering healthcare topics and history, with intriguing anecdotes from current and retired doctors and medical professionals.
Wordsmith Media, Inc. has also begun the process of up-listing its stock to a higher exchange on the OTC Markets. When this process is completed, the company will be better positioned to provide greater liquidity for its shareholders and advance to an even higher exchange from a more stable platform.
"Wordsmith has weathered the macro-economic storm of the past few years with no institutional debt or venture capital leverage upon it, cutting expenses and remaining cash flow positive. Not only has our industry changed fundamentally, but the economic landscape has required a new paradigm shift in thinking about how capital is raised and utilized. The equity markets, as well as the sea-change in the publishing and media industry, have been moving targets that have required critical attention to get it right." stated, Michael Herrington, CFO.
With these announcements, the company will soon finalize the new company website and its various product sites to include these updates and its continued progress.
