Samir Husni on how the Coronavirus is changing the future for magazines. | InspireHUB

 

In just a few short weeks, the world as we know it has fundamentally shifted.  Even prior to the global pandemic, magazine publishers around the world were facing a myriad of ever-increasing concerns.  Some of these were addrressed in the 2017 New York Times article that discussed “The Not-So-Glossy Future of Magazines,” outlining how large magazines had lost readers and advertisers to more nimble online competitors.  Others included debates around what the proper print versus digital mix is for readers.  

What the general consumer may not have understood was the print industry had been enjoying a very steady and healthy increase and was predicted to reach $821 Billion by 2022. In 2018, research from Freeport Press indicated that “When it comes to our magazines, we read more, read longer and subscribe more often to print than digital.”

However, these industry trends and statistics no longer apply in this new world where the coronavirus is being said to stay active for days on surfaces.  It brings a level of complexity that many in the magazine publishing industry may not have even considered.


5 reasons independent agencies should be building on closed-circuit Digital Experience Platforms | InspireHUB

 

A shift has happened in the digital world.  Small, independent agencies and freelancers are giving larger well-established agencies a run for their money.  Since 2018, there has been growing confidence among senior executives at large brands. Brands who once saw a small agency as a potential "risk" are changing their tune and now view the small agency as providing a level of agility that is now required for businesses to compete.

The IHUBApp Digital Experience Platform (DXP) is now rapidly being used by digital agencies around the globe for exactly this reason.  We put together the five main reasons your digital agency will want to consider the IHUBApp as you look to disrupt the established agencies in your local community for yourself.

Our inspiring startup story and what it can teach your business. | InspireHUB

Last October, our Founder, Karolyn Hart, was invited to talk to the 200 developers that came together at the Samsung Create! conference. When InspireHUB was founded in 2013, it was immediately retained by the Mandela family to help use technology to fight the pediatric healthcare crisis in South Africa. We eventually morphed to help corporations with their communications. In this talk, Karolyn shares the story of how Progressive Web App technology came to the rescue for InspireHUB clients, what the team learned about using bleeding edge technology and how a small, unknown, scrappy group of devs ended up being the first to do a whole lot of cool stuff.

Grab a mug of something hot and lean in for 20 minutes of fun and inspiring storytelling about what it's like to be a rogue band of developers at the beginning of a technology the world had yet to adopt, from an "Aha! moment" in the back of a cab in Nairobi as our first customer helped inform future design, to the teachable moments that helped pave the way for some of consumer technology's most valuable shifts today.


The FREE 2019 Future of Apps White Paper Is Here! | InspireHUB

Each year, we publish a white paper to help businesses and their tech leaders make sense of the ever-changing landscape when it comes to communications, collaboration, productivity and engagement.  When we shared our first one in 2014, mobile was still the focus, with cell phones being the one device 96% of people had access to at all times.

While that's still true, the way people -- including customers, employees and suppliers -- are using them is changing. One of the biggest shifts? The days of downloading "native apps" from app stores and the endless cycle and expense of having to maintain them across multiple platforms are over, as the "Progressive Web App" technology makes an any-device, anywhere, anytime approach mainstream.

Confused? We've got you! Our new white paper, “The 2019 Future of Apps: Progressive Web Apps Grow and Mature” includes insights on app trends and industry predictions from tech leaders on the current mobile market as the world of “native apps” and “progressive web apps” merge.  Here's a taste ...
