ONA Weekly #442: Staying Ahead Of The Curve

By on January 4, 2023

Staying ahead of the curve

In 2022, publishers rated subscriptions as a high priority for their newsrooms. This still applies. Thinking beyond traditional models to attract and retain audiences is vital. 

In the ONA-hosted webinar Staying Ahead of the Curve: Top Trends Influencing the Digital Publishing Industry, speakers discussed creative ways to evolve and expand revenue streams, the rise of micropayments, increased demand for audio and video content, and using analytics to understand audience needs to personalize and curate content.
