Price Setting

Lit-X AI- & data-driven Price Setting addresses book publishers. It allows you to define a unique comparison group vs. any publisher/author/title combination, define a competitive initial price, adjust the life-cycle pricing based on a cohort comparison, and analyze your own or your competitor's price-change impact via a revenue estimation.

Data Scope

We constantly extend our data scope. Depending on the data type, the scope may vary marginally. Currently, we cover the following data scope: 

  • Countries: Germany, United States
  • Titles: All titles generally available
  • Authors: All authors generally available
  • Genres: Crime, Thriller, Mystery, Children's (only story-telling sub-genres), Romance
  • Genres hierarchy: We provide a three-level genre hierarchy: 
    • Level 1, e.g., "Thrillers"
    • Level 2, e.g., "Thrillers - Supernatural"
    • Level 3, e.g., "Thrillers - Supernatural - Vampires"
  • Data types: Publisher, author, author gender, title, topic, various success metrics, ratings, reviews, price, product variants, popularity (custom use cases may include additional data types)
  • Sources: We collect data from dozens of sources including but not limited to major online shops, review communities, agent communities, individual publishers, distributors, agent and author pages, social media platforms, text aggregators, and industry associations. 
  • Updates: Data is updated once per month

    Data Quality

    Our data runs through an extensive quality control process. We capture all potential issues in an automated and reliable way. Issues addressed are constantly being updated, since we continuously increase our data quality further, dive deeper into the data and explore more use cases.

    Common issues include misspellings (e.g., Stefen King), different ways of writing names (e.g., H. P. Lovecraft vs. HP Lovecraft), data gaps in our input sources (e.g., no price available), wrong data in our input sources (e.g., miss categorized: "The Gift" in "Gift books" instead of "Thriller"), and many more.  


        • Updates are generally done on a monthly basis
        • Updates imply a data pull from all available sources
        • Updated data doesn't overwrite previous data but is appended to it, building a transparent timeline and adding value to the data

            Success Definition

            We define "success" as a multi-layered metric that is user-centric and consists of two main aspects:
            • It includes a reader perception component that measures how well a book is received by the readership based on ratings and reviews
            • It includes an approximation of actual sales based on price, number and value of ratings, reviews, bestseller list entries, and more
