[Webinar] Audiobook Metadata: Your most important asset
May 9 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Audiobook publishers are riding a wave of interest and excitement over their products, but in the midst of explosive growth it is easy to lose track of the less visible, but still important, elements of your business. Metadata can be a dull topic to some people, but it has a tremendous impact on the visibility and sales of any book, whether print or audio. This webinar will dive into audiobook metadata with gusto, giving you best practices and ideas for effectively managing this important business asset. We’ll discuss metadata management strategies to increase efficiency and decrease errors, best practices for audiobook-specific metadata, and strategies for increasing visibility and sales with keywords.
