Current & Emerging Best Practices in Promoting & Marketing Digital Content

TORONTO,ON – eBOUND Canada has released a study on digital content marketing strategies for independent Canadian Publishers. The study was commissioned by eBOUND and conducted by Castledale Inc. with financial support from the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC).

Small publishers have improved opportunities at their disposal to increase brand awareness, reader engagement, and revenue channels by adapting traditional marketing strategies to include social and multimedia. The utilization of advanced data collection for meaningful analysis further aids publishers vying for readers’ attention in an increasingly competitive market.

Forty-two publishers participated in an eBOUND survey in April 2014. Additionally, professionals from various digital-content industries were interviewed and a three-country wide literature scan conducted to uncover best practices in marketing of digital content relevant to book publishers.
