Building a consumer mindset

With the GDPR and other privacy measures, along with the decline of Facebook, it’s more clear than ever that publishers need to create multifaceted revenue models that put their audiences at the center to build a direct relationship with them.

Join us at the Digiday Publishing Summit to discuss new ways to drive consumer revenue, the evolution of how success is measured for publishers, the impact of GDPR on publishers’ programmatic business, platform strategy and much more.

    Modernizing the Content Industrial Complex
    Salon 1 and 2

    This complex interconnected hive of advertisers, agencies, middle-men, production companies, media brands, distribution channels, and audiences, is being completely dismantled without clue how it'll be put back together. Some people like to frame this as part of a larger narrative around tech disrupting an industry. This is not disruption. This is replacement. Only we don't have a clue what we're replacing it with. As a result advertising, marketing, cable, film, TV, print, agencies, production companies, and all of media are going through an epic existential crisis. In this session, Eric Gillin will begin to dissect what will become of this huge next step.
