From Future of Ink Founders Denise Wakeman and Dr. Ellen Britt

February 2013

Dear Online Entrepreneur,

You may not realize this yet, or even quite believe it, but your reach and impact as an online entrepreneur just went global…

All it takes is one simple shift in the way you think about your business...

It’s 2013 and the world has changed...radically.

Publishing ‘rules' are no more. The cold stone walls preventing you from getting massive visibility and yes, even celebrity in your marketplace, have come crashing down.

Everyone and anyone who has a connected device, from a smartphone to a tablet to a laptop, can easily access your digital content.

Your reach and your impact as an online entrepreneur just went global.

Everything, and we mean everything, is different.

Consider this: The Huffington Post, an online news and information site that commands tremendous influence in today’s marketplace, started out as a self-published blog.

Amanda Hocking, a young woman employed as a group home worker in Austin. Minnesota, started selling her young-adult paranormal novels online in 2010 after she was rejected by traditional publishers.

By May of that year she was selling in the hundreds, by June in the thousands. In January of 2011 she sold 164,000 books in that month alone and has gone on to sign a lucrative publishing contract with a major book house.

Joe Konrath, a U.S. based novelist, who has sold more than 100,000 ebooks, gets an incredible one million plus annual hits on his blog.

And the numbers get even more astounding

According to a study done by Online Universities, the average eBook reader consumes 24 books a year, compared to 15 books read by the print reader.

75% of the total population of the entire globe came online in 2011...

and global ownership of tablet computers is expected to reach an astonishing 760 million by 2016.

And all this is certainly not lost to online entrepreneurs, who are rapidly moving to digital content publication for four main reasons; impact, interactivity, speed and cost...

Impact: Your digital content can literally span the globe on the reader’s choice of devices.

Interactivity: You can add video, audio, live links, animations and more to your digital content to engage your audience like never before.

Speed: You can get your content to your marketplace in seconds and when the customer wants it.

Cost: Because your content is digital, your production, print and delivery costs are dramatically reduced.

And there’s more good news, both for your prospects, clients and customers and for you as an online entrepreneur...

because so many people are pouring digital content into the marketplace on a daily basis, the quality of that content must continuously get better and better.

Even search engine giant Google is getting into the quality content game..

In fact, in October of 2012, Google started actually punishing sites that have poor quality content...

content that is poorly written, doesn’t deliver on what it promises, is stuffed with keywords and is duplicated in other places on the web…

Here’s what Google’s insistence on quality plus the explosion in demand for digital content means for you...

you no longer have to worry about the latest search engine ‘hack’ or trick to try to fool the search engines into bestowing a high ranking on your articles or your blog posts or your audios or your videos...

or any of your other digital content because since quality digital content now rules...

nor do you have to worry about artificial barriers to publishing your books, videos, audios, podcasts, audiobooks, blog posts and all of your other digital content...

All you have to do (here comes that mindset shift!) is start thinking of your business, not as a producer of traditional goods and services, but as a publisher of high value, information rich digital content and then concentrate on publishing and distributing your content for your particular audience.

Happily, there are dozens of easy to use, free and low-cost tools, apps, platforms, social media sites and more to help you do just that...

everything from cool video production and infographic tools, podcasting software, Amazon’s powerful Kindle platform, blogging software, YouTube, Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, Twitter, Quora, Slideshare, internet radio and a gazillion other options...

It’s that simple.

And at the same time, that hard.

You see, not only do you have to know which platforms and tools are the right ones for you, but you have to consistently publish and distribute high quality digital content and...

you have to know how to create, effectively market it and yes, monetize your content if you are going to survive and thrive in today’s digital publishing universe.

And here’s the best news of all:

As Founders of The Future of Ink, Denise and I have tapped thirteen of the most knowledgeable digital publishing experts on the web today to reveal their best digital publishing know-how in a dozen cutting edge, LIVE, how-to training webinars that will take you by the and teach you how to create, market and monetize your digital content!

Digital Publishing Trends Panel

Explore the digital publishing trends that will define 2013 and beyond with Future of Ink Founders Denise Wakeman and Dr. Ellen Britt, plus Hollywood screenwriter Mark Staufer, creator of The Numinous Place, an innovative, paradigm shifting work of fiction and Matt Edelman, CEO of Glossi, a new web-based publishing platform that lets you create your own beautiful online magazines for laptops, tablets and smartphones.

Why is keeping on top of trends in digital publishing and content marketing vital for your business?

First of all, staying current with these trends can give you a big advantage when making decisions about your business.

The more you know about what's coming and what's likely to be popular, the quicker you can apply that information to your business. And your customers, as well as your competitors, will assume you know what's going on...in other words, they will see you as an authority in your marketplace.

Understanding digital publishing trends will also help you make better strategic business decisions, as you'll be able to identify threats early, before they have a chance to negatively impact your business. Plus, you'll be able to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the digital publishing space before most people can make a move.

Our panel of experts will identify emerging trends in the digital publishing world and most importantly, they will discuss how you can integrate those trends into your business for more profits and more customers.
