Do you need to understand your book consumers and their purchasing behaviour? Nielsen BookInsights Conference will help identify your best customers, provide an insight into the kinds of books they want, and a clear understanding of how best to engage them through effective and efficient marketing.
Who Should Attend?
Publishers, Retailers, Agents and other industry executives.
We have a fantastic line up of speakers who will deliver insights into consumer behaviour and future trends. You will gain a deep understanding of the UK consumer book market: how people choose and buy books, which channels they use and why, and how to optimize your marketing spend.
Nielsen Book will present its comprehensive annual review and emerging trends for the print and digital book market.
The conference will reveal how consumers purchase books - what is the path to purchase, and what influences that path and triggers the buying decision. We will also review data fusion, and explore how you can use data to target your audience to ensure effective advertising and social media campaigns. We will be showcasing a range of techniques, case studies and consumer information to provide an in-depth look at consumer purchasing behaviour today.
