Shard Media was looking to radically overhaul its digital presence as it was very much of a rigid and non-responsive format, and in need of a significant shift forward to provide improved services for the readers, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and across the board for Shard publications and events.

 

At the same time, there was a big need to pull together the back office into one centralised suite. This is because Shard Media runs a lot of events, and a great deal of time is spent ...

Ocean Media Group (OMG) is evenly shared across two very specific sectors - Housing and Weddings / Bridal. They were looking for a unified platform which they could deploy across all their digital properties both for the front end and the audience CRM, and which would harmonize the running of those digital businesses, while improving on scalability, manageability and productivity.

 

OMG was looking to transform the way it rolls out events, whilst also creating the best brand hubs, ...

2015AfBlgGlastonburyTimeline480

This was far from a vintage year for Glastonbury - none of the headline sets were really up to previous memorable performances. There was little musical or stage show innovation here, and nothing too much to write home about. Florence and the Machine on the first night was just like every other performance we have seen of theirs, Kanye was too minimalist, a little disjointed and woefully out of tune on the Bohemian Rhapsody Kanye-Oke, and The Who looked somewhat tired.

 

Headline sets ...

The top picture features ’New Business Journalist of the Year’ Peter Apps (Inside Housing, Ocean Media Group) flanked by our CEO Markus Karlsson and host Lisa - hearty congratulations obviously.

The demise of traditional publishing media is well documented, and barely a month goes by without another title disappearing from the news-stand. The move to digital is now quite a few generations old, and it’s quite evident that for most publishers, simple subscription and advertising alone do not generate sufficient revenues online.

 

Publishers have to look for other sources of revenue, and the more successful ones are more and more reliant on value-added member services. Much ...

The Future of Music Retail - Introduction

 

2 Significant music-related things happened for me in 2009. Firstly, I signed up for the Premium version of streaming service - Spotify; secondly, I finally succumbed to Apple and bought into the iPhone smartphone. I have several discarded MP3 players and iPods which have somewhat fallen into disuse as I found it a burden to carry around so many devices. The fact that the iPhone comes with iTunes / iPod functionality means that I now always ...
