Office and team
Worthy Book's office is located at Northpoint Offices, Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur.
The team boasts a number of employees.
Nowadays, their coupon book can be found on the shelves of bookstores in Klang Valley such as Borders, Books Kinokuniya, MPH, Times Bookstore，Mynews.com and Popular. Worthy Book also distributes their voucher booklets via their online store, consumers can order the booklets and it will be delivered to them via Pos Laju.
Recently, during March 2015, Worthy Book has also partnered with 7-Eleven and started distributing their voucher booklets.
Its business model is similar to that of magazines whereby merchants pay for advertisement and readers pay for subscription.
The book is designed in a way to cross between a shopping directory guide, write-up reviews and coupon offers. Each merchant brand is typically given a page of introductory description (price range, outlet addresses, editorial tips, “3 Must-Try” bestseller recommendations and so on) along with a page of 4 or 5 offer coupons.
One of its key selling points to merchants is that unlike other print media, whose readers may only care to browse through the advertisements once, their readers see clients’ advertisements throughout the year in order to redeem the deals. Furthermore, their coupons are categorized according to malls for customers’ convenience.
In addition, Worthy Book allows for long-term marketing to garner supporters while online coupons bank on short-term marketing to gain a rise in sales. The coupons in Worthy Book are mostly valid for one year while online coupons will normally expire in three months.
From 2012 onward, the team behind Worthy Book decided to produce dedicated versions of the voucher booklet publication series for targeted niche audiences such as FnB edition and Ladies edition. Its 2013 Ladies Edition received favorable rating by on Yahoo! News.
