Mastering Metadata: the Key to Marketing Your Books

Metadata is your best friend and marketing partner, so craft it carefully! When you’re ready to upload your book for publication you’ll need to provide a few types of metadata in your Bowker ISBN record and for the various print and eBook distributors.

  • Book Description (short and long)
  • Author Bio (short and long)
  • Keywords and Phrases
  • Categories
  • Audience

Learn how to master metadata in my post for BookWorks.
