Good data helps sell books - improve yours!
Nielsen Book research shows the best performing titles are the ones which contain descriptive content in the book record. The Nielsen BookData Enhanced Service enables you to add descriptive content to your titles such as a synopsis (long & short descriptions), reviews, author biography and table of contents. Nielsen BookData disseminates information for English language titles electronically to over 3,500 booksellers, internet retailers and library customers in the UK and to over 100 countries worldwide, making your titles discoverable to thousands of potential book buyers!
