Event/Webinar: Content Marketing
January 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Explore various ways publishers can use digital tools to create or supplement their products and develop audiences for their product lines.
The days of paper-only publishing are long behind us. We’ve moved into the digital world, creating products like ebooks, supplemental digital materials, or interactive product lines and marketing those products through social media, blogs, or online newsletters. Although we’ve made the leap, we may still feel a bit unsettled. Indeed, how best to maneuver, strategize, and operate in the digital realm—and make the most of its tools and measure their success—is an area that many of us in publishing still grapple with. And once we figure it out, the technology advances and the possibilities change again.
Whether you’re an editor, marketer, designer, publishing executive, or author, we invite you to join us for this series of presentations on how all things digital has affected publishing strategies and practices both in normal times and during the pandemic. Two representatives from Capstone Publishing will share their company’s history with digital products, how they have developed and marketed those products, and their response to the pandemic. Shifting gears into marketing, we’ll feature a presentation from the founder of Asterism and Co., a company that specializes in content marketing for book publishers, who will explain how publishers can use the digital tools of content marketing to build and retain a community for their product lines.
