2018 is about diversifying beyond advertising
Spending on display advertising and video advertising is expected to increase in 2018. Despite this, C-suite publishers surveyed by Digiday believe alternate channels provide the biggest opportunities to grow revenues, with 32 percent choosing branded content and 23 percent selecting subscriptions as the revenue channel with the most potential, while just 6 percent said digital advertising and 14 percent said video advertising.
