How Publishers Use Social Media and Other Digital Footprints to Find Readers
Join the Guild for a lively discussion moderated by Jim Lichtenberg, founder of innovation and digital strategy firm, Lightspeed, LLC. Panel guests include 2017 Publishers Weekly StarWatch Honoree Erika Seyfried, now Director of Content Services in Advertising and Promotion at the Random House Publishing Group; Christina Stanley, Associate Director of Client Training and Development at Penguin Random House Publishing Services; and David Walter, Executive Director of NPD Books at The NPD Group.
The speakers will cover book marketing in a world where companies regularly use digital footprints to build consumer profiles and sell everything from politics to unicorn food, “Bookstagram” as a formidable enough force to dictate elements such as cover design, and how publishers are responding to GDPR and other changes in data regulation.
Online sales are now closed. Admission will be available at the door.
