    Panel Title: Loyalty and Revenue: The New User Metrics

    Moderator: Jason Alcorn, MediaShift
    Panelists: Denise Law, The Economist; Dave Burdick, Denverite


    What user metrics matter most when reader loyalty is your goal? Right now a tectonic shift is happening in publishing from a click-driven era to one that is community-driven. How publishers respond today can determine if they will succeed in building an audience that shows up tomorrow and every day after.

    This panel will include a discussion with publishers who are the forefront of thinking about how to measure user loyalty in this new community-driven era to strengthen their brands and use a loyal readership to grow revenue for their businesses.

    This free online panel is sponsored by Opinary. Opinary enables users to share their opinion in-content, helping publishers and brands reach, understand and convert their most valuable audiences. Publishing partners – including global leaders like The Times, HuffPost, NBC etc., use Opinary to engage and monetize their audiences, while global brands like Toyota or Mastercard boost attention, create conversions and generate insights. All attendee emails will be shared with the panel sponsor.



    – Presentations will be available to participants.

    Who should attend:

    Journalists, editors, growth managers, social media editors, marketers, publishers, non-profits, and content creators interested in learning about engagement metrics.

    Date and Time: May 2, 2018, 10 am PT / 1 pm ET
