Special Time for Publishers and PressPad is Coming

The passing year along with the global pandemic and world wide lockdown forced publishers to take bold steps in running their businesses to stay afloat. Those were mainly the radical acceleration of the shift from print to the digital distribution of all types of publications and redirecting the monetization activities from advertisements to the subscription model. Both of these transformations seem to be strong foundations for the further industry’s development in 2021 – the more so as the future of digital publishing looks bright.

We cannot deny that 2020 has been a challenging time for many different brands. The good news is that it’s coming to an end. Today, with hope, excitement, but also anxiety (what an explosive mixture!), we are waiting for the new. What publishing experts predict is that the next year will be based on the further development of subscriptions strategy, mobile content delivery, and distribution channels expansion.

Today, we’d like to show you something that will make the vision of the publishing future be dominated only by positive feelings. We’ll prove that 2021 promises to be a generous year for publishers, and explain why PressPad is preparing surprises for them.

Check what 2021 will bring to you.
