Publishers, Do You Know Your Metrics?
These days, it seems like every piece of software you use, and every entity that sells your books offer you some kind of metrics. Unit sales, revenue growth, top sheets, bottom lines… it’s possible to tell a lot of stories with numbers. But how do you actually know how your publishing company is doing? How do you measure financial health, growth, sustainability… and how true you are staying to your mission?
In this episode of the A People’s Guide to Publishing podcast, Joe and Elly tackle the question of metrics and how to ignore the wrong ones and focus on the right ones so you can build the book publishing company of your dreams.
