Gartner recently released a report entitled “Content Marketing Pushes Digital Marketers to Adopt Newsroom Habit”. The reports speak of the need for content marketers to need to use real time response to their customer / readers in their approach. They are responding to the digital audiences obsession with mobile aggregation.
All companies have dynamic content that they need to promote. There are two types of content formats that publishers market. For print publications such as brochures, catalogs, reports, magazines etc.. content marketers can use products like 3D Issue that can automatically convert their press ready Publications into digital magazines.
But what about that other content, news. That content that is so dynamic that it can’t be put into PDFs as the content changes that quickly. How can you create a digital edition from this content without tying up resources. 3D Issue Hubs is the solution.
Today content markets use tools like blogs and CMS to promote their news content to their audience. As their audience is increasing mobile they have a problem. Their legacy systems are not optimized to port their content to the smaller resolutions that their audience are accessing their content on.
