Despite its evolution over the centuries one change has eluded the publishing industry – going direct to the readers themselves. Now technology is allowing this to happen which means that the publishing landscape is starting to change again.

Publishers have always acted as gatekeepers between readers and authors. The lack of direct contact with readers and plus pressure from retailers to publish more books like the bestsellers from the previous year, means they rely on historical sales data to decide which books should be made. If there is no successful precedent, this makes it harder to justify supporting new ideas and original stories from the diverse range of voices clamoring to be heard.

Now, using technology platforms, authors and online content creators can ‘prove’ their audience exists by capturing it through social media themselves. This combined with a vast amount of data to analyse, and more viable ways to make sense of it, means the radical tech-enabled evolution of the publishing industry is inevitable. This evolution will democratise the industry in favour of authors and readers, while creating new opportunities for publishers themselves.

Here are important ways in which I believe the publishing industry will change, and soon.

The adoption of digital in early-stage investment has moved more slowly than in other industries. This is no surprise as human relationships are part of the process of matching investors and businesses.  However, the world of early-stage investment is changing and recognising that digital does not have to mean impersonal. In reality, it can help build deeper relationships in a shorter time.  This is because it provides new ways to communicate, share information and ultimately make it easier for investors to navigate the process to find the right opportunity and make the investment decision.

Many ISPs want us to believe that the future is fibre-optic. To take some leading examples:

  1. Virgin Business is spending heavily to promote its Voom 350Mb fibre connection to businesses, and
  2. Hyperoptic has raised £500m to help them roll out their 1Gps connections to two million premises by 2021.

At the time of writing, they are limited to approximately 50 cities and towns in the UK.

It’s important for a business, especially an online business, that your customers know clearly what they are purchasing and what your terms of business are.

T&Cs, as they are often called, are the clauses in a contract that set out the rights and obligations that both parties should be aware of when they enter into a contract.

One of the seismic changes brought in by the internet is the ability for creative people to build, directly, an audience for their work. The age of the bureaucratic intermediary is over. As a result, 75% of Generation Z, the first generation with no concept of life without the internet, are considering a career in online video. YouTube and Blogger take the top two positions of careers kids would like when they’re older.

But while building an audience yourself online is easier than ever, there are surprisingly few ways for influencers and creators to monetize their audiences outside advertising revenue – especially in an age of ‘free content’. Making entertaining or informative content people want to come back to over and over again is a full-time job, so online creators promote products or services on behalf of other brands, even though this may risk the authenticity and integrity of their online persona.

Are you one of the fans who is both looking forward to the final episode of Game of Thrones and also dreading it?  Do you have confidence in your prediction of who will ultimately win and end up sitting on the Iron Throne?

Making decisions on investments in stocks and shares is also about anticipating who’ll be a winner.  When watching GoT we’ve thought about the character strengths and also the flaws of the key protagonists. Similarly, we can analyse and make decision on stocks and shares by considering three criteria: Quality, Value, and Momentum.

Here are some investment choices for a few GoT favorites using these:
