Summer in the City

Dear Readers,

NEWS: The big news for last week is that LinkedIn was acquired by Microsoft Word. What does this mean for Publishers? So far nothing. But read this article:

Facebook is increasingly becoming the #1 social media site for Publishers, in terms of posting information about their front list, back list titles and author events or discounts. Does Facebook help Publishers sell books? I’m inclined to say – not too much. But there is no harm in putting the information out there.

In an article from Book Business Insight, the following are emerging strategies that Publishers’ are starting to use to advance their business (

· Customization and personalization
· The integration of video with print
· Using LED technology with print
· The importance of mobile technologies
· The impact of augmented reality
· Case histories discussing how to capitalize on these business opportunities

Do you agree these are important for Publishers?
