Kathy Meis Indie Author Fringe SpeakerAuthors: Metadata IS Your Brand. Get Yours in Shape.

Format: Video followed by a Twitter Chat using #IAF16

Today, word-of-mouth involves computers. This means metadata is more important than ever in defining how authors and books are described and discovered in today’s book marketplace.

Mobile, digital, social, online shopping — whether we like it or not, the new word-of-mouth involves computers. They translate our recommendations and drive online discoverability of our content. They have their own language – metadata – and it’s much more nuanced than you might think. It defines how authors and books are described and discovered by readers.

It’s time to learn this language and make it work for you and your brand. Live Twitter Q&A will follow the recorded session.
