Nielsen Book research shows that publishers who invest in supplying good, timely and comprehensive book data will see improved sales. Our research shows that sales of titles can increase by 10-13%.
Our study: The Importance of Metadata for Discoverability and Sales demonstrates the effect that descriptive data has on sales - the more descriptive data your book record contains the more likely it is to be discovered by your audience and to sell.
Enhanced data elements include the long and short description, reviews, author biography and table of contents. To see the full report click here
