Overview

Etally is an automation and analysis tool for any business that sells its “subscription” products on the various digital Newsstands hosted by vendors such as Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google and Zinio.

Etally Can...

  • Load monthly sales results from a variety of digital vendors
  • Standardize transactions by correct product sold and start period
  • Report on standardized results across titles, sales channel, transaction type and start / sales period.
  • Export summarized results for use in circulation models and other database systems.

Every month publishers of digital content spend days wading through myriads of inconsistent reports provided by your digital vendors. Etally takes a process from frustrating days and turns it into a manageable fraction of an hour. And after Etally is done loading and standardizing your monthly sales, reporting on what is happening, it can easily slice and dice these transactions and turn them into the meaningful information necessary to make business decisions.

 
 

The Etally automation and analysis can be applied to any business selling "on-off" subscription-like digital products through digital vendors including:

  • Magazine publishers
  • Newsletter publishers 
  • Mobile App vendors
  • Continuity product campaigns and clubs
  • Digital content providers

Why Etally?

  • One-Click reporting saves you time – Now it’s easier than ever to load digital sales data with one click of the mouse from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google, Zinio. This information is at the transaction level; Etally also supports a generic feed format allowing you to load in not already captured digital edition sales data (from your website or other not-yet supported digital vendors.)
  • Standardized reports allow you to see your results quickly - Determine sales trends and promotion performance by production month, accounting month, start issue, sales channel, term, new vs. renewal, sub vs. single copy, trial conversion and renewal rates, and more.
  • Export sales directly into your circulation model for seamless reporting - Feeds can be done at both the title level (whereby you will have sources for each channel), as well as consolidated (whereby you would have sources for each title.) Use your circulation model to account for digital sales either on a production or accrual basis.
  • Priced fairly … it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg just to account for your digital business.
