It is now a strong global trend that digital competes closely with print-media. This is injecting a sense of instability and insecurity in the minds of journalists, ad sales as well as media management professionals alike. In a digitally driven world, the need of the hour is to embrace convergence and mitigate risk. This can only be done if media management realizes how important it is to make digital a part of their product offering seamlessly and use it effectively to add value to the end-user as well as the advertiser. The target group of this workshop are editors, online editors, new media editors, newsroom managers, product managers and marketing managers who wish to learn the various content monetization models to make the most of their digital content.
