It’s hard to find bright spots to the Covid-19 media story, but global media network FIPP manage to find one or two in a report released last week. It says kids’ magazines and educational material – particularly that targeted at stuck-at-home parents – have hit the spot with readers; and newsy titles have had an uptick as readers seek the latest pandemic information Subscriptions – both print and digital – are up worldwide, they report. Web traffic is also up, although publishers are still struggling with how to monetise online traffic. And – this one won’t surprise you – online events are having a moment, as real-time get togethers are cancelled worldwide.
Our conference will go ahead in late June this year, reshaped for the post-Covid environment. Instead of a half-day get together, we’re working with global media network FIPP and our sponsor PressReader to deliver a couple of online webinars with a mix of international and local speakers. FIPP CEO James Hewes will deliver the keynote address: a round up on what’s working for magazines around the glove. We’ll confirm the other speakers and dates and times as soon as we can.
