Disrupting Innovation: Book Publishing and New Media

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In today’s challenging marketplace for books, how are publishers innovating to ensure their place in the content ecosystem of the future? This panel will look in particular at revenue streams – both income sources for publishers that are often unseen by the public and self-published as well as additional proceeds from emerging technologies and business models. Publisher-distributor hybrid models (i.e. Amazon, Wattpad, Scribd, Atavist) will be examined, along with the effectiveness of subscription services such as Kindle Unlimited and Oyster. Also to be discussed are as-yet-untested future sources of income: electronic marginalia, social reading, and more. The end goal will be a discussion about how an industry can innovate and grow when it’s accustomed to thin margins , zero R&D budget, and a split between B2B and B2C business models.
