Successfully Navigating A Publishing World Consumed By COVID-19

Publishing Executive | June 30, 2020 Tips for publishers on navigating a publishing world consumed by COVID-19.

Publishing Executive | June 30, 2020 - Publishers have been operating in a challenging landscape. Media consumption has never been higher, but advertisers have frozen their media budgets - and publishers are feeling the strain on their monetization efforts.

A few tips for navigating a publishing world consumed by COVID-19 from Nativo SVP of Publisher Development Jason Kalin, as featured in Publishing Executive.

Refine Your Freemium Models and Data Practices

Success with freemium models comes from nuance. Publishers should establish tiers, make sure they’re capturing meaningful insights and adjust their value proposition for advertisers when considering employing freemium models.

Always Preserve UX
