Extreme makeover: How Hearst reinvents itself, and what’s in store next
Their “months-to-moments” mantra is not a sound bite; it governs everything from company culture to operational priorities for Hearst. And it’s paying off. Hearst digital properties now boast more than 330m unique users globally. Cosmo alone grew from 15 million global unique users 4 years ago to 69 million today. In the Netherlands alone it exploded from 200,000 to 3 million in a year. To achieve this, Hearst took and implemented major decisions involving brands, content, technology and people. For Duncan Edwards ‘this is the most exciting time for content’ … but to share in its future, business needs turning on its head. Hear about the major decisions Hearst took and implemented to play for the future, and what it plans to do next.
Duncan Edwards, President and CEO, Hearst Magazines International

The company’s strategy is built on a simply premise: to be a global leader across three complementary channels: online classified marketplaces, digital media houses and Schibsted Growth, its digital investment arm. Schibsted’s Pierre-Francois Marteau will provide insight into the company’s successful digital transformation, as well as key areas of development to consider for the future.

How an investment in quality content has users turning over dollars
Nearly two years ago The New Yorker took down the paywall to its archives, triggering a proverbial run on the bank – its archive content. Five months later the paywall came back up, causing another run… on paid subscriptions. It wasn’t a fluke. Its digital audience is up 25 per cent year on year, and subscriptions more than 60 per cent! Regular, top quality content lies at the very heart of The New Yorker’s stunning performance. In this session you will get the inside track on The New Yorker’s digital content strategy and operations, and why creating superior, quality user experiences holds the key to sustainable brand success in a world where fickleness all too often holds sway.
