Nielsen Book provides a range of services to the book industry internationally, aiding the discovery and purchase, distribution and sales measurement of books. We have been supporting the book industry since 1858 and have worked closely with the IPG and it’s members for many years.
Below we have outlined some of our current initiatives which we think might be of interest, please feel free to get in touch if you want to know more.
PUBLISHER HEALTH CHECK
The need for high quality metadata is more important than ever.
Our Publisher Health Check report will provide an overview on the quality of the data Nielsen Book holds for your titles. We will provide you with statistics around your data completeness and make recommendations on how you can improve your title listings ensuring all your metadata elements are complete and up-to-date.
According to Nielsen Book’s latest research titles meeting the BIC basic requirements enjoy double the average sales of books that don’t meet that standard.
15% OFF FOR IPG MEMBERS
We are offering IPG Members a 15% discount off our Publisher Health Check, simply sign up before 31 December 2021.
Silver Health Check
For publishers, distributors or sales reps with fewer than 500 title records.
Gold Health Check
For publishers, distributors or sales reps with between 500 and 25,000 title records.
Both reports will feed back on the elements you have listed with us and will provide guidance on how to improve your listings. The feedback will be based on your full list of titles. For more information please email: email@example.com
