At the Digiday Publishing Summit last month, hundreds of industry leaders gathered to discuss building products to monetize audiences, sifting through data and incorporating insights. Here’s a quick look at five major takeaways from our most recent summit. The key hits:

  • Publishers that are focused on the top line are depressing the entire business.
  • To create effective subscription products, you have to constantly test, learn and iterate.
  • Apple News+ puts publishers in the position of becoming production houses, and they lose their connection with the consumer.
  • When trying to scale an events business, the key is partnerships.
