Dream Local Digital’s Shannon Kinney will present at the 2015 Maine Press Association Annual Fall Conference, being held in Bangor October 17. In her session, “Innovation and Disruption in the Media Industry” Shannon will highlight ways to transform a local media company, and why bold changes are necessary. “We must change our culture or suffer the consequences. Mobile requires resources and a strategy NOW,” says Kinney; “Content strategies must change and evolve. And organizations must invest in data and analytics or be left behind.”
In this dynamic session you’ll learn key takeaways from visits to companies including BuzzFeed, Mashable, Hearst Corp, McClatchy, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Tout, Yelp, Parse.ly, Mobile Marketing association, and many more. What trends matter to local media companies? Where can changes offer the most results?
