The Associate Member Spotlight: 5 Questions with Kris Nagel SVP, Worldwide Field Operations, Vindicia
Speaking on Known Unknowns, Mr. Nagel says, "Without a doubt, mobile is going to be the big win. The next generation of digital publishing offerings will need to be more oriented towards "information hubs" that combine magazine/newspaper content with current streams of information and video offerings that together drive much deeper consumer engagement. Monetization, subscription and recurring billing technologies must evolve to support this trend."

Q&A with GQ Style's Will Welch
“There is no news section. If you want to know about what’s happening with the fashion houses or who the most stylish young band is, or what people wore at the New York City Marathon yesterday, I would happily direct you to and our social feeds. What we are going to do in print is something that could only successfully live in print. We are going to use those pages to really do something that only works on the quarterly schedule that GQ Style is released in. I think it’s all about the width of throwing some, not all, but some magazine structure and thinking out of the window and saying, ‘what should print be now?’” says editor in chief, Will Welch.

Free Pubs: A Rising Threat to Regional Magazines
John Palumbo writes: "Often when I query an advertiser about their decision to invest their dollars in a free publication, their first answer is that it was so cheap to do. I always follow with a series of questions like, “Who reads it? What kind of home do they live in? How often do they dine out, engage in philanthropic activity, and what kind of car they drive?” Usually they respond with a mumbled, “I dunno,” which prompts a very appropriate “you get what you paid for” analogy."

MPA–The Association of Magazine Media has released its 2016/17 Magazine Media Factbook today, the definitive source of magazine media research. Since 1985, MPA has been compiling and packaging the most compelling and comprehensive facts and figures around magazine media. Derived from third-party sources and MPA’s own research and data collection, the new Factbook has nearly 100 pages of current and useful information. “Nothing informs a discussion better than solid data,” said MPA’s President and Chief Executive Officer Linda Thomas Brooks, “and the 2016/17 Magazine Media Factbook has plenty of conversation starters. The research continues to show that magazine media is the most trusted, inspiring and influential of all media, and several new studies provide even more proof of magazine media’s unique ability to drive sales.”
Nielsen Catalina Solutions (NCS), the leader in helping CPG marketers optimize return on advertising spend (ROAS) with in-store purchase data, presented the study, “Yes, Advertising Works. Now, What’s My ROAS Across Media Platforms?” at the Advertising Research Foundation's Audience Measurement 2016 conference. The study generated benchmarks that allow marketers to compare the return they should expect from every dollar of their cross-media, digital video, display, linear TV and magazine advertising spending. In its analysis, NCS worked with The Advertising Research Foundation, CBS Corporation, Meredith Corporation, Sequent Partners and a prominent technology and display advertising company.
