A few years ago, the internet exploded with news of its ubiquity, its limitless potential, and its promise of changing the way we consume, produce, and access information.
But in its first year, the web still lagged behind its rivals in terms of digital adoption.
The number of websites on the web has fallen in half since 2007, and the number of sites on the internet’s most popular search engine, Google, has increased by more than 50% in that time.
This hasn’t happened in a vacuum, though.
In fact, the lack of online content and the rapid growth of mobile devices have made it easier for content creators to reach audiences elsewhere.
To make matters worse, the rise of social media and apps has made it even harder for creators to retain content in digital form.
And then there’s the fact that, even as the internet continues to grow, so has the cost of publishing and distributing it.
A new generation of publishers, with new platforms and a renewed interest in publishing, is looking for ways to diversify their business models, both in terms.
And that includes digital.
In an effort to broaden their revenue streams, some of the world’s biggest publishers have begun to embrace digital distribution platforms.
The majority of publishers use a variety of different tools to distribute their content, including traditional print publishing platforms, digital-only publishing platforms like Amazon, and streaming-only platforms like Netflix and Hulu.
The result has been a growing number of publishers looking to diversification and a shrinking number of traditional publishers.
In short, publishers are trying to find a way to make a living by taking digital distribution on the road and making money while doing so.
In a sense, this is a new business model for publishers.
Many publishers will be content to continue to print books on paper, and that’s fine.
But the idea that digital distribution will make them millionaires while also allowing them to make more money on digital content is appealing.
The way publishers plan to monetize their content is to offer readers something they can’t get on paper.
The idea is that they will get a high-quality, highly-consumable print version of their books in digital format.
The publisher will then sell a digital version of the book for a reasonable price, either on a traditional print publisher’s website or through a subscription platform like Amazon.
The reader gets what they pay for, which means that the publisher has to earn a profit from the sale.
But because it’s not a traditional printed book, the publisher is still in a position to get paid if readers opt to purchase a digital copy.
In other words, if publishers plan on using digital distribution to make money, they’re trying to be the best-selling book of the day while simultaneously not compromising their artistic integrity.
If that’s their goal, then they have a great deal of leeway to do so.
The problem is that the current model is not sustainable.
The publishers who are most interested in diversifying their business are those that have a clear vision for their future and are trying hard to stay ahead of their competitors.
In that sense, they are likely the most diversified, and thus the most successful.
The traditional publishing model has its benefits, but it’s also a big, expensive business.
Digital publishers are not necessarily the most important players in this digital world.
They’re also not necessarily interested in doing the work that traditional publishers are.
They can make money doing the wrong things.
They could even be the wrong people to run a publishing business.
But their success will depend on how well they can manage the transition to digital distribution and stay ahead in the digital marketplace.
In the coming years, the publishing world will continue to evolve.
The digital age is going to give publishers new tools to do the work they need to do in the publishing business, and they will need to diversified their business model.
Publishers are not the only ones who have to adapt to the new digital world, and we can expect more and more companies to do just that.
In the meantime, publishers will need new and better ways to reach their audience.
