Digital publishing and monetizing your digital content
Are you reading your favorite magazine in print or on your iPad? If it’s sexy men’s magazine Maxim, we’re guessing like thousands of other readers in Thailand, you’ve taken out a digital subscription.
Dr. Polapat Udomphol, business development director of IT Works (www.itworks.co.th), will talk about the digitalization of the publishing industry and how publishers can generate extra advertising revenue in the process.
Software company IT Works developed an app called “Ookbee” (from “e-book”, www.ookbee.com) which has quickly become Thailand’s largest and most popular digital platform for magazines. The company currently has over 100 titles in their portfolio including Men’s Health, OK! and Seventeen. Ookbee works on iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
