“Make it work”

I consult in matters relating to two main fields of work: One is optimization of value chain and sales potential in the book industry as well as other media industries. The other field is reference work expertise; I can assist on most levels in working with dictionaries, encyclopedias and other types of heavily structured works and collections.

I will happily take on other kinds of assignments as well. I have a lot of experience in the field of digitizing books and texts. I also enjoy writing analytical reports and articles of journalistic nature.

My name is Marie Bilde Rasmussen. I am experienced in working in the intersection between editorial, digital and business. Whenever “translation” between the cultures and expertises of those domains is needed, I can help enabling planning and execution of common projects.

On this site you will find more information about my consultancy. You will also find the reports and articles that I have published. And of course, this is the place to get in touch with me.

Value chain optimization

Robust, sufficient, precise and targeted distribution of books and their metadata constitutes the backbone of contemporary sales and marketing work. Without high quality, reliable, comprehensive and updated metadata, neither retailers nor customers will have a chance to find your book among all the other books on webshops and in industry registries.
