The Key to Discovery

Enriched content offers access to your publication’s information via numerous points of entry: visual, aural, themes, reviews, descriptions, dynamic links and more, and it is often the best way to ensure your publication is identified by a member of the buying public unfamiliar with trade-oriented methods of search and discover. Thus, Enriched Content increases the chance of people finding your publication, reducing frustration and enhancing the search experience.

Enriched content helps people, including staff in wholesalers, bookshops and libraries, to select items for purchase, build relevant reading lists and advise customers. Good quality content is also essential within academic institutions, making research an engaging and entertaining process while ensuring that the student finds the book they need.
