Enhanced Service

Help your books sell themselves!

Nielsen BookData research shows the best performing titles are the ones containing key enhanced metadata elements.

Our Enhanced Service enables you to add, where appropriate, enriched metadata information including descriptions, table of contents, reviews, promotional information and author biographies to your title record. A member of our Editorial Team will manage your information, ensuring accuracy, consistency, timeliness and completeness of your records, which will give your titles the competitive edge when viewed by book buyers around the world.

Nielsen BookData research shows that publishers who invest in good and comprehensive metadata will see improved sales. The benefits of supplying Nielsen BookData with rich content is self-evident and has been validated by our Metadata Report: The Importance of Metadata for Discoverability and Sales. The more metadata elements your title record contains the more likely it is to sell.

The biblets you create are yours to share and allow readers to discover your books. Nielsen BookData will automatically embed your biblets in our bibliographic database for additional exposure and Book2Look biblets now feature on the website.
