Your Metadata Makeover: Leveraging Your Book Description, Author Bio, and BISAC Headings for Success

An IBPA PubU Online Webinar / Level: Foundational/Practical

Now that half your book sales happen online, how do you make sure they sell? After all, there isn't a bookseller to recommend your book nor a table to display it.

We've got good news: you can be your own best bookseller by approaching your description, author biography and keywords in a smart way! Join Kelly Peterson, the director of digital strategy for the Independent Publishers Group (IPG,) and learn how you can lift your sales with a few short steps:

  • Creating a "sales sandwich" around your back copy;
  • Making your description easy to read on all websites;
  • Add reviews to act as your bookseller in all metadata;
  • Keep a customer once you find them for multiple books;
  • Use your shopping behaviors to help you become an expert.

Anyone can shop, and anyone can find success with a few proven techniques - so join Kelly in turning your metadata from a necessary evil into a selling machine.
