The Data Evolution: How Publishers Are Using Data to Become More Audience-Centric | Publishing Executive

The Data Evolution: How Publishers Are Using Data to Become More Audience-Centric | Publishing Executive | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

Data has become the accelerant of choice for an industry long confident in its ability to curate engaged audiences around content, but struggling to translate those audiences into dollars in a Post-Magazine Era. (Some may question that we’re in a Post-Magazine Era, but that term is not intended to suggest the magazine is dead -- only that it is no longer considered the source of long term growth by most publishers.)
