While some SME publishers focus on trying to gain ground and reach those dizzy top-tier heights, others have enough trouble just trying to get a network to look at them, let alone keep up once they reach the summit. From competing against a torrent of top-notch traffic to becoming exposed, making a splash and getting yourself heard – it is not an easy battle being a publisher.
Short of a big arrow sign and a neon jacket, publishers will find out how ‘not’ to be ignored by a network, while gaining insight into hot topics such as relationship building with advertisers.
From networks helping publishers facilitate key industry rendezvous, and publishers who aren't geo-located in industry hub cities; to selling yourself and business properly - a whole host of topics will be explored. Here, a panel of candid network pros and up-front publishers will also smash myths and delve into controversial issues such as backhanders and profit splitting.
