Amazon continues to upset the publishing industry, this time going around publishers to offer authors $20 million for going audio 다운로드. If an author is willing to let Audible, the Amazon-owned audiobook powerhouse, sell their book then Amazon will give them $1 per book:
The Amazon-owned digital audiobooks site Audible.com is launching a new program, “Audible Author Services,” that pays audiobook authors $1 per sale through Audible.com, Audible.co.uk, and iTunes, out of a $20 million fund 다운로드. The audiobook publishers do not receive any of the funds.
To sign up, authors must make their titles available as audiobooks through Audible.com. Once they enroll their books in the program, Audible says, they will:
- Receive an honorarium of $1 per unit sold 다운로드.
- Obtain samples and links from Audible for use in social media, blogs, or on their websites.
- Gain direct interaction with Audible marketing and merchandising teams; and
- Obtain a free copy of their audiobook from Audible 다운로드.

All of this amidst a Department of Justice probe into e-book price-fixing that charged many major publishing houses and Apple, yet, conspicuously left Amazon out 나인룸 3회.
It certainly does appear that Amazon has a death wish for certain areas of the publishing industry and is largely succeeding at that.
When I think of pay-per-view my mind automatically races to all the Wrestlemania’s and Royal Rumble’s I watched as a kid. With this new announcement by YouTube there is a chance they will be returning:
YouTube is adding monetization options to its live streaming platform, including the ability for publishers to charge for live events 스타워즈 1 다운로드. The new feature was announced on YouTube’s publisher blog Tuesday.
YouTube has been experimenting with pay-per-view for select publishers. Making the option more widely available could make YouTube’s live streaming more attractive to other sports and entertainment publishers 다운로드.
Of course, YouTube isn’t the only one to offer paid live streaming: Ustream and others have been offering publishers a way to charge for events for some time 다운로드.

Online advertising is booming. Already a $32 billion business, advertisers are expected to spend a full $62 billion online in 2016. But news publishers are not poised to cash in on the growth, a report released Monday by the Pew Research Center suggests 연세대 다운로드.
The problem? News publishers’ online advertising products simply aren’t competitive. Most tend to depend on static, un-targeted banner advertisements, making their products less desirable than the highly targeted advertisements offered by the likes of Facebook and Google 주토피아 한글자막 다운로드.
Among the other findings:
- 21% of ads on an online news site are for the news organization’s own products.
- By category, the financial industry is the largest spender in online news advertising (18%), followed by cosmetics and toiletries (5%) 다운로드.
- Most ads are static banner ads. Rich media and video ads are rare.
- Few legacy print customers are moving to digital
A detailed study that shows newspapers losing $7 from print for every digital $1, without even a sense of how they are addressing a key aspect of that transition 설문조사 다운로드. It’s an unfortunate vacuum.
One exec bluntly states, “There’s no doubt we’re going out of business right now.”
This unfortunate state of affairs is costing the newspapers $25 billion this year and success stories are rare 체인지 다운로드. One success I was able to find comes the The Atlantic magazine, a much smaller company pulling in $18 million in advertising 원피스 필름골드 다운로드.
US newspaper publishers’ hopes that advertising revenues might be about to stabilise have been dashed by several pieces of research 다운로드.
An analysis of data predicts that newspapers will achieve a new low in ad sales for 2011, with revenues expected to come in at about $24 billion this year (2011) – down from the record $49.4 billion achieved in 2005 다운로드.
The last time newspaper revenues were this low was 1984.
Although this was the year many publishers hoped the business would stabilize, sales continued to deteriorate alarmingly in almost every category in the first nine months:
- Retail advertising dropped 8.8% 다운로드.
- Classifieds plunged 12.9%.
- National advertising fell by a bit less than 11%.
- The only bright spot was digital advertising, which climbed 8.3% 프린터 드라이버 다운로드.
This year was the year that many publishers believed an improving economy would halt, if not reverse, the revenue slide that commenced in the spring of 2006 무료 배경음악 다운로드. Technically, the economy did rebound in 2011, but the uptick bypassed newspapers.
My heart goes out to all those in the industry 다운로드.
With one question, where did $25 billion in lost revenue go. What multi-billion dollar industry has replaced it?
It’s possible it went to the digital world, where newspapers are completely out of touch with only a few success stories 다운로드.
