    Working Group Session 1
    Colorado Ballroom & Mountain View Room

    Chose the first working group topic you would like to participate in.

    Reader-revenue Streams
    How can you profit from your readers? From subscription models to members-only content, converting casual users to paid ones can be tough - publishers need to find new and innovative ways to create revenues without solely throwing up paywalls.

    Video
    Making video people want to watch and monetizing it is profitably is a huge challenge, especially for publishers without a history of doing it. How publishers approach and invest will go a long way in determining who wins at video.

    Platform Publishing 
    Platforms are playing a bigger part in the media ecosystem, eating up most of the digital ad spending and setting the rules for how publishers create, distribute and make money off their content. Publishers can ignore the platform giants at their peril.
