Create opportunities from the audience insights you get
using real feedback and opinions.

You’ve got an awesome idea to drive new user, subscriber or revenue growth, but…

You don’t have time to read countless blog posts. Or the budget and resources to trial new experiments. Or you’ve had countless internal meetings and have not come to a conclusion on what to do.

But feeling stuck sucks.

Particularly when you are working on a project wishing to move onto the next in a timely manner. Reading case studies from peers achieving awesome results and wishing you had the support to do so. Or not being able to connect with the right people that can help prove your idea or point of argument.

You want to be the hero for your audience…but how?

What if you could connect and  learn directly from your industry peers, vendors and emerging startup’s ?

Imagine being able to post your challenges and get their advice any time. Or discovering strategies and new media/tech that drive those massive wins. Imagine being provided resources, opinions, analysis and blueprints for building those repeatable wins. Or help and achieve strategic partnerships — all in one place.

That’s State of Digital Publishing:

An editorial and community to learn the stuff that works, gathering with some of the leading digital media publishing practitioners.
