They're used by libraries, and by certain distributors. If you're trying to reach readers, use text, not BISAC codes. If you're trying to get to libraries, use BISAC codes.

However, the reality is: it can't hurt to use it, but the BISCAC codes won't help you with readers. When was the last time you searched for a book using a BISAC? Right? So, if you don't, most won't.
