    Driving revenue in digital

    Go Local: Driving revenue with local communities. As technology makes inroads in every field - media, healthcare, transportation, food, just to name a few - consumer attention span is ever reducing with several products competing for that mind-share. Is delivering curated experiences and #hyper local experiences a strategy, a buzzword or the pure art of building great products?

    More than 40% digital revenue for publishers is estimated to come from programmatic advertising and it is growing year on year. However, concerns over what inventory to put in programmatic in order to maximise the revenue remain a challenge. What are the challenges and insights to go programmatic.

    Digital subscription

    Driving reader subscription via addressing user needs. The FT with more than 900,000 paid for customer created its own engagement metric that correlates directly with retention and it knows the commercial value of every additional engaged user. But engagement isn't driven by commercial goals - it emerges from addressing user needs. FT has come up with a strategic framework wrapped around User Journeys, that helps users to form a habit - and drive subscription numbers.

    Between reader revenue and advertisement revenue, how to balance the scale.

    Ken is 'subscription only' site from India that vertically segments the audience and presents content that appeals to the segment of the readers who pay for it. It publishes just two stories a week, well narrated and analytical that subscribers wait to read them. Listen to the Ken story.

    Panel discussion: Social media impact on journalism

    Social media impact on journalism. The way journalists work has completely changed thanks to the invasion of social media in newsrooms. It has given wider audiences for the stories, and keeps the journalists active 24x7. At the same time, challenges persist such as metrics based on number of views / shares, shallow coverage, fake news, etc. Is social media a boon or bane for journalism?
