Publishers and E-Commerce are Perfect Together . E-commerce is a big opportunity also for publishers.It started modestly by selling for instance subscriptions online. However, publishers are moving beyond selling subscriptions or even digital content.
In the US, big corporations like Hearst Media integrate e-commerce on sites such as Housebeautiful.com, one of their magazines.
In Belgium Sanoma made their first steps into e-commerce a couple of years ago. They started the Libelle Shop where they sell articles interesting for their female readers. Examples: interieur or cooking products, fashion products, children, gifts for special days like Mother day, …
De Standaard and Het Nieuwsblad also started an e-shop but the concept is different. Next to products of interest for their readers, they are very active in selling seasonal products or product related to certain actions in their newspapers, events. Both Sanoma and Corelio acre actively developing and evolving their e-commerce model so that it continues to support their media activities.
Meanwhile, book publishers start becoming also retailers.
FW Media from the US for example, is a content creator and marketer of products and services for a specific community/hobby (arts and crafts, hunting and firearms, woodworking, sports, …). They offer a diversified portfolio of books, ebooks, magazines, events, competitions, ecommerce, education, video, and more. They rethought their business model, still focusing on books, but trying to get more out of it. This resulted in launching “all-in” e-stores by hobby (interests) where consumers could find and buy content, online learning but also products.
They have 25+ e-shops and the turnover from online business is expected to become their 2nd most important source of revenue.
E-commercemeanschange of the current business model. Why do you start ane-shop:- Additional sales channel for the current business (e.g. books publisher)- New incomes (e.g. press editors)- Merchandising (tv- and radio stations)
Rethinking your business model is a challenge that sooner or later every company is confronted with.
In order to have a successful move towards e-commerce, you need to do your homework well before you launch your online business:Which type of products are you going to sell? How are they related to your current business and the interests and lifestyle of your customers?What ICT platform are you going to use and how does it integrate with the rest of your systems? Can you sell both digital and physical products? Think about the consumer experience on your webshop.How are you going to bring visitors to your website? Can you use your other communication channels to create a cross-channel communication strategy?How are you going to make sure that consumers buy more and different products from your online portfolio? What kind of sales strategy will you use?How are you going to cope with questions from your customers? What kind of customer support do you want to provide?And last but not least… How are you going to tackle all those things a publisher doesn’t normally have to think about: the warehouse, the order preparation, the delivery of the order to the consumer,...
