What You’ll Learn

The main concerns for the publishing industry revolve around new technology opportunities, advertising revenue expectations based on engagement, and consumer evolvement. If publishers aren’t utilizing the newest technology, traffic will decline. This isn’t a reference to the best tech, it means the latest tech—opportunities like alternative reality, experiential marketing, and integrated social media.

The goal is getting consumers to develop a bond with your brand. Step one to meeting that goal is ensuring that consumers have an omnichannel experience. Not only has technology changed, but consumers have as well. They’ve developed an impatience that comes along with access to faster technology and an expectation to be entertained 24/7. If publishers don’t conform to the new norm, they won’t survive.

Nancy Meyer and the companies she’s worked with have mastered digital transformation by keeping up with new technological options.
