Digital Media Strategies helped our attendees understand how to make the most of addressing the key strategic challenges behind developing a profitable and sustainable media business in a constantly developing digital world.

Returning for its seventh year, the event demystified what can be done for your business, whether you’re a niche B2B information publisher or a large international news outlet.

In today’s ever-evolving media environment, publishers are constantly looking at new models in order to sustain their competitive position. Whilst this is not a new development, it now demands more than a one-size-fits-all solution. And the variety and complexity of these models can often be daunting.

Whether it’s aligning your commercial and editorial content, creating a seamless user experience, transforming your business or developing a long-term plan for sustainability, Digital Media Strategies is the must-attend event each year.

Take a look at the stellar speaker line-up and what was discussed at this year’s event, and about how Digital Media Strategies works for you.

Key themes covered included:

  • The future of news brands: Explore the potential of different strategies – including subscription and donation-based models as well as advertising partnership opportunities.
  • Data fuelled insight: Leverage the potential of data to gain a greater understanding of your audience, what they want, and how to cater to their needs. Move from quantity to quality and find a place for data in your overall business strategy.
  • Creating trust and maximising engagement with monetised content: Discover how to strike the right balance between commercial activity and generating content that will boost engagement levels with your audience.
  • Innovation in media: Get up to speed on the latest trends and how they can work for your organisation and for your audience. Learn from leading experts about how they have utilised technology to maintain a cutting-edge approach in the digital space.
  • Developing an e-commerce strategy: With the rise of technology, publishers are looking to diversify their business model, and media commerce is an increasingly popular strategic move. The online marketplace is becoming a business necessity for media companies, both in the UK and beyond.
