Press Release: Koios [August 24, 2017]

Koios and Amigos Library Services announce new partnership

Dallax, TX (August 23, 2017) - Amigos Library Services today announced its addition of library marketing startup, Koios, to its preferred vendor list. Amigos member libraries will receive a discount on Koios products and services that help them show up in local Google search results.

When asked about his decision to partner with Koios, Alan Kornblau, Amigos Library Services CEO, said, "By partnering with Koios, Amigos Library Services members will be able to get their resources to appear in Google. Many libraries do not realize how many opportunities are available on Google to connect library resources with community needs. Koios can help our members make those connections.."

The Libre Online Promotional Suite (Libre OPS) is a new offering from Koios, previously known for their work in browser extensions. According to Koios founder Trey Gordner, Libre substantially advances the young company's mission to "make borrowing online as easy as buying." The suite combines the best practices of structured data, search engine optimization, and paid search marketing to propel libraries to the top of local search results. With Libre, the library appears first for searches like "1984 book," "math homework help," and "learn spanish free."
