Digital content publishing evolving to new heights

There's an array of programs and platforms available today that swiftly and easily let companies and individuals publish digital content. On the consuming end, a range of new devices means digital content publishing is now more attractive than ever.

In many respects, it is these high-tech devices that are overtly influencing -- if not outright driving -- digital content publishing. That's because publishers need the best end-unit fit for their digital content. There's little use in going to the trouble and expense of generating digital content if it's not going to display on the most popular devices of the day.

Some digital publishers focus entirely on one device alone, with their content tailored and configured to, for example, one popular tablet computer. They see the computer hardware market heading in that direction and they want to be part of the content action.

However, digital content publishers need to be vitally aware of the technologies that are leading today's content consumption as well as those that are emerging and coming on-stream. That includes the platforms on which to deliver digital content and the hardware where it ends up, whether laptop or tablet or smartphone.

Looking out for trends and the emergence of new technologies is key to ensuring success in delivering digital content. Wearable technology -- such as glasses projecting content onto a tiny panel and smartphones worn as watches -- is one area that is being developed, and digital content publishers will need to know just how to configure their content to match these bold new environments.

For the greater part, publishers remain perplexed about how to monetise their digital content. Back in the early days of the commercial internet, which was only around a decade ago, the prevailing wisdom turned out not to be so wise after all: rendering all your print content digital and dumping it online in the hopes that a) you’d make money out of advertising on your website or b) somehow, after consuming your content for free online, consumers would be goaded into buying your long-established print options.

While some major digital content publishers did enjoy a bonanza in advertising, since then the rates of clicking on ads and the price of ads themselves has plummeted. Some do enjoy high subscription rates to their digital offerings, but they remain a minority in digital content publishing. The great give-away at the start of it all, where everyone expects their content, which is costly to produce, for free, has come back to bite them.

Still, concerns about reaping financial rewards from digital content aside, there’s never been a better time for anyone to get their content out there, whether it’s large news corporations, businesses aiming to create a wider profile and attract new clients or individuals writing blogs.

In the fast-developing environs of digital publishing, one thing is clear: content is what forms the unyielding backbone of the internet and increasingly it must be professional and of the highest quality. The digital world is evolving, and so too is the content it carries.
