Publishing Industry News

The Wiser publishing industry news email will help you stay up-to-date as the industry continues to go through significant change. You will get the latest news, analysis and opinion from the best sources on the internet delivered straight to your inbox every day. Traditionally, the publishing industry involved printed material like books, magazines and newspapers. Demand for printed material like this has declined as consumers have moved to personal electronic devices like computers, tablets and mobile phones. This has forced the publishing industry to change. Those changes have included adapting to the new ways of delivering content to readers using technology, and the growth of self-publishing. The later applies to websites, apps and books and is a phenomenon that is continuing to grow as individuals and businesses use the new tools of technology rather than the old tools of the printing press. As it is a changing industry it is more important than ever to stay up to date with developments. The best way to do that is to register for the free daily publishing industry news email from Wiser.
