Selling Books Online With Clever Metadata | Digital Book World

Selling Books Online With Clever Metadata | Digital Book World | publishing 21 | Scoop.it

Clever publishers incorporate data at every stage of workflow, creating much of it before a book is even published. Large and small publishers alike can ensure effective book sales, marketing and distribution by efficiently using metadata.

 

Similarly retailers and libraries, known for their role in book discovery and converting readers to book purchasers, classify titles according to data. Consumers and library patrons have developed an intuitive sense of how books are organized for browsing.

 

This understanding lets each library visitor and online shopper choose between serendipitous book discovery and a more careful search. With or without realizing it, consumers follow metadata to find and purchase their next book.
