How to Add a Flux Capacitor to Your Digital Offerings
The media industry is in turmoil. Once the darlings of investment bankers, media companies are struggling to slow the slide of print advertising revenue and find a way to increase digital and services revenues. Everyday another media company shutters a print edition or cuts the frequency or distribution. Worst of all many are now making severe cuts in editorial – their very life-blood.
Many media companies have shifted resources to build strong events businesses and increase marketing services. They have decreased their dependence on print but have not yet replaced the print advertising revenues. There is hope in the promise of increased digital revenue but publishers have not found a way to increase the value of the digital reader to equal or surpass the value of the print reader.
Foundations of Digital Publishing is a four part series that will provide a foundation and a set of best practices for establishing and growing digital revenues.
Seminar One: How to Add a Flux Capacitor to Your Digital Offerings
In this session three seasoned and successful digital media professionals will present an overview of using a flux capacitor to move your digital offerings into the future.
