Announcing a Better Way to Track eBook Sales: App Annie for eBooks
App Annie launches its eBooks analytics & market data platform to the world – for free.
LET’S TURN THE PAGE ON EBOOKS HISTORY
Today we’re announcing our foray into a brand new space. It’s an industry rife with works of passion and intrigue, die-hard fans, and most importantly a significant digital presence. That’s right- App Annie is now tracking eBooks.
Starting today, publishers, authors, agents, and marketers will be able to quickly and easily track their eBook sales and downloads, as well as monitor worldwide industry trends.
Tracking eBooks performance is no easy task, especially when you have multiple titles on iBooks and Amazon’s stores. Downloads, revenues, ratings, reviews, rankings are all details that should be easy to measure, but with existing tools it’s time consuming and tedious. That’s where App Annie steps in.
After many conversations with publishers and writers about how they tracked their eBooks, we learned it was a complicated patchwork of different processes and products. That led us to realize we already had the perfect vehicle for simplifying things: our app tracking platform that’s used by over 40,000 app developers today. We knew we could control this tempest of data. Better yet, we could make analysis accessible and intuitive for everyone, and put everything in one central place.
So, we’re rolling out two products, and they will make your life easier in different key ways.
APP ANNIE FOR EBOOKS – ANALYTICS
On the web or in your inbox, App Annie delivers crucial tracking information you can instantly understand.
Analytics allows you to see all your eBooks’ information in one place, giving you everything you need to understand your eBooks’ performance in a simple dashboard. With the click of a mouse, see up-to-date graphs and charts for sales, downloads, customer reviews & ratings, and bookstore rankings. In order to give you the most flexibility possible for accessing your data, we also provide e-mail reports, downloadable Excel files, and have a mobile app on the way.
Gone are the days of merging multiple reports, daily downloads of data, and countless hours trying to analyze numbers. App Annie is here to make the hard stuff easy.
Connect your Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing or Apple iTunes Connect Books account now. In a few clicks, you’ll have access to everything you need to watch your eBooks succeed.
APP ANNIE FOR EBOOKS – STORE STATS
