    Customer relationship management is crucial not only for the conventional advertising business of news media companies but also for developing new revenue opportunities. Without deep knowledge of existing customer habits and new customer expectations, media companies are in risk to lose market share and revenue potential to (new) competitors. Choosing the right CRM system is therefore more than just an IT decision but the result of a process that includes business model analysis and organizational measures as well.

    Ad Blocking to publishers/plenary
    Media Port Hall A1

    Online advertising is destroying itself. And it is doing so in a way that will fatally undermine online publishers’ sustainability. Intrusive advertising is forcing users to use ad blocking as they browse the Web. Last year's PageFair/Adobe report revealed that ad blocking had grown: to 144 million people. (See The Economist chart attached, using PageFair data). This year the upcoming report will show a vast increase in these numbers. Publishers are losing revenues, and this will get worse as Apple introduces blocking to iOS9. This presentation will talk through the figures, country by country. It will discuss two key issues: a) the causes, and b) possible responses to ad blocking for the industry.

    The publishing, and with it, the printing industry are currently undergoing a fundamental transformation. While digitalisation drives change, publishing companies focus on constantly increasing their productivity over the „traditional“ value chain. Key questions in this regard are how to spot productivity levers and how to quantify their potential. SCHICKLER developed over the last 10 years a deeply routed benchmarking system to answer these questions in a very systematic way. The underlying database is constanty being fed from dozens of relevant projects in the international publishing industry. Due to the fact, that the underlying structures and workflows are known to the consultants, SCHICKLER is able to describe the levers behind each benchmark. Alexander Kahlmann, partner and key benchmarking expert at SCHICKLER will provide key insights into the findings from some of the most recent projects involving productivity gains through application of benchmarking instruments. He will cover aspects of the operations as well as other areas of the publishing value chain.

    Building a strong digital newsgathering and verification strategy:

    With much of the content now passing through newsrooms coming from digital sources, it is essential that organisations devise strong newsgathering processes and standards for dealing with it.

    Monitoring, communication and an understanding of the latest platforms and digital tools are essential, but so is understanding on how to keep the content coming in. As we rely more and more on user-generated content and social media, newsrooms must know how to verify this content quickly, accurately and ethically. If we turn off our audience or those content contributors then they might just stop sharing with us in the first place.

    Fergus Bell will be presenting the concepts that all newsroom leaders must be thinking about when newsgathering in the digital age as well as the ethical considerations for making this work sustainable.

    Hermann Petz, the CEO of the Austrian regional newspaper Tiroler Tagezeitung, is on a bold mission these days: to put an end to today’s endless bashing of newspapers.

    “The newspaper is dead? Long live the newspaper!” is the not-so subtle title of Petz’s recently published book, written on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Tiroler Tageszeitung’s 70th anniversary.

    Petz, who serves as the Chairman of the Board of Moser Holding, will no doubt declare his views on the power of print when he delivers the keynote address of the World Printers Forum in Hamburg.

    Facts for the vibrancy of Print

    Clearly, Petz does not buy in today’s mainstream pessimists who say print is dead. On the contrary: “One only has to look at the latest media analysis that identifies excellent numbers – particularly for regional newspapers.” 

    He is convinced that quality journalism can only be based on the printed product because pure digital publishing cannot refinance the costs of a high-quality editorial team.

    In his book, Petz also presents numerous examples about how print is more efficient in advertising, and reaching and engaging readers.

    Mengis Druck AG situated in the city of Visp produces the regional daily Walliser Bote. They replaced their aging conventional offset newspaper press by an industrial web inkjet press.

    The print plant invested in inkjet printing technology that can be used not only for newspaper printing. The utilization of the old conventional press was not very satisfying any more, according to the management. In order to achieve new business perspectives in future digital inkjet was the printing technology of choice.

    The new production machinery is expected to print the newspaper in the night but also commercial print products during daytime, such as books, mailings, signatures and personalized advertising materials. 

    The complete new production system went live in June his year.

    “The reason for the change in our business is the media change by the Internet. The consequence, a decline of print volumes (pages and printed copies), is projected to hit rock bottom in the middle of the 2020s. This change affects all print product areas as well as the products that are promoted as semi-commercials”, says Matthias Tietz of Rheinisch-Bergische Druckerei in Düsseldorf, Germany.

    The newspaper print format is an obstacle for marketing. The possibility (or not) of using the Rheinisch format as a multiple of A4 is the basic question determining the operational use of newspaper printing presses or commercial presses for newspaper production. The economy also plays an important role in the decision to transition from the traditional business model to a new one. 

    Mr. Tietz thinks that the choice is between running a profit centre owned by the publisher and acting on his behalf, and exiting the printing business entirely, to outsource that part of the process. The pros and cons of the profit centre as a business model can be measured in the medium term by comparing its profitability against that of outsourcing production.

    Hyperlocal is not a term, but a trend in journalism and news media that revolves around one belief: "People will only be driven to consume and pay for content that is highly relevant, and that is mainly local content." (Antonella Mei-Pochtler, Boston Consulting Group). Consequently the future of news media is seen in targeting small communities and deliver content of their immediate vicinity in real-time.

    The relevance of news for residents and business owners can be determined on two dimensions: time and geography. The closer to these dimensions, the more relevant (and less manageable for mass media) it becomes. Beyond the still untested hope that local content is the only content people will be paying for – it has also left a blank spot on what locality actually means. In times of social media conversations mediated by a diverse range of mobile devices to geographically faraway places. "Proximity" does not necessarily converge with "geography" or "time".

    Social proximity might be an even more important driver for perceived relevance. Kai von Luck (HAW) will discuss with panelists what might be on the horizon beyond hyperlocal defined as media for a small geographic area.

    This presentation appeals to organizations with environmental sustainability policies and sourcing of material concerns. More specifically, it addresses how your procurement decisions influence Canada’s motivation towards sustainable forest management (SFM).

    Canada is by far the leader with 43% of the world’s certified forests. Its provinces devotion to SFM facilitates the process for companies to produce certified pulp and paper as well as other wood products. This strongest level of certified forests is partly due to strict policies and political will to address non-compliances and customers’ concerns.

    The speaker will present examples from Province of Québec’s forestry regime demonstrating how SFM policies lead to engagement with Aboriginal peoples in resource development decisions affecting their land and communities and virtually zero-levels of deforestation.

    Using UV cured inks can be a technical and a business option for newspaper printers to extend their product range and business opportunities. UV allows using higher paper grades than just newsprint and printing vibrant colors.

     

    The question is, what does it take to add UV curing capabilities to your newspaper press? What are the costs involved and what are the appropriate business models of printing? What is the return of investment? And what do you have to do in marketing and sales to get the jobs you need to be profitable? Can you compete with heatset printers and what are the success models?

    Nigel Wells will present the results of the project ”Optimized Paper Handling & Logistics”, supported by many publishing and supplier companies and associations worldwide.

    This unique cross-industry collaborative project brings together expertise from across the entire paper supply chain from the mill, through transport, storage, handling and printing. Its goal is to establish a common best practice tool and global reference for suppliers, transporters, converters and printers to improve their efficiency.

    Substrates are the highest single cost for all printing and packaging applications and any reduction in their waste and damage improves both economic and environmental performance.

    The goal is to collate, complete and communicate global best practices as a reference manual delivered at low cost to sponsors and no cost to users. To achieve this requires engagement shared across the industry because no company, organisation, or region can do this alone. This collective approach will deliver cost effective international synergies to answer needs in both emerging and mature markets.

    Newspaper printers strongly feel the need to look ahead and plan their future strategies. These are usually based on more than just printing the publication of one publisher who – in most cases – is also the owner of the printing plant. In times where publishers look for optimizing production costs printers are developing optimized business models to secure their survival.

    This process is in full swing in many countries around the globe. It has not yet come to an end. Many different concepts and print strategies are developing and there is not the one and only business model that fits all needs. Most probably there will never be one master plan for newspaper printers in future, but a variety of different solutions that fit the market requirements and capabilities of printers in different geographic regions.

    Some printers turn their business into a publisher owned profit centre, others are based on joint ventures of different owners, there are also large and independent newspaper printers in North America and in Northern Europe. A step in between profit centre and independent printer marks the use of an external operation service within the own print plant. Newspaper printers are boosting productivity and extending their markets into commercial printing with the help of retrofits and new technology, new organizational concepts and new skill sets, which include the concept of providing an “Online Printing Service”.

    A new WAN-IFRA Report presents a number of interesting international cases that illustrate the development from different points of view.

    The Austrian 4c Magazin initiated a survey on alternative business models for newspaper printers. The idea was to create an overview about emerging business models of former newspaper printers who are now either extending their business into new areas or are changing their business models to become more independent, rather than depend on only one publisher. Martin Schwarz will present a bird’s eye view of the various avenues printers are branching off into.
