BookMachine Oxford: Selling more books online

8 June, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST

BookMachine Oxford
Selling more books online

8th June 2016 | The Jam Factory | Free

About the event

How good is your metadata? Helping readers find the content they want, in a well-organised way, is fundamental to selling more books online. There are set rules aimed at standardizing how publishers, booksellers and others describe each book. Kieron Smith (Digital Director, Blackwells Bookshops) will walk us through what we should be thinking about and what will ultimately lead to more online sales. An unmissable talk for commercially minded publishing teams to attend.

Thanks to BookBrunch for sponsoring BookMachine Oxford.
