Data Strategies that Build Audience and Diversify Revenue


SNPA will host a free video conference on "Leveraging Data to Build Audience and Diversify Revenue" on Thursday, June 21. To participate you must to sign up by June 15.

Tom Ratkovich, managing partner of LEAP Media Solutions, is the program moderator.

"Publishers are typically tasked with two massive and often conflicting challenges," Ratkovich says. "The first is to grow audience despite declining print circulation and proliferating digital content options. The second is to increase consumer revenue."

The June 21 "P2P" (Publisher-to-Publisher) program will explore the fundamentals of a tactical data strategy and its implications for audience growth and monetization. The program will demonstrate that a well-engineered data strategy will support audience growth and a range of strategic business imperatives – including the preservation of print revenue, digital subscription growth, revenue diversification and more.

SNPA's monthly P2P programs are free for SNPA members, but participants must sign up by June 15 and share basic information to help SNPA address specific audience needs. To be included in the conference and hear how other newspapers are growing audience with data:
