For over a year now we have offered agents and authors the ability to follow actual NPD Bookscan weekly sales reports for up to 5 ISBNs, through a monthly “data package” upgrade — at the lowest price ever provided for this kind of data access. Now we are able to provide this package to an expanded universe that covers most PublishersMarketplace.com members except for publishers (whom NPD services directly). Eligible PM members now include agents, authors, editorial services providers, film/tv people, independent publicists, packagers, and scouts.
Meanwhile, NPD launched a new version of the Bookscan platform earlier this year that provides more features and data analysis than ever before, and PM remains the exclusive sales partner for agents and authors. The new platform makes it easy to search multiple titles at a time; save collections of titles and bestseller lists to follow on a regular basis; graph sales for easier visualization; and more. Visit our revised info page for more details, or to enroll for service.
