The past, present & future of publicity: Interview with Georgina Moore
BookMachine
Publicists were hugely patronised as people who booked parties or in Bridget Jones’s words ‘fannying around with press releases’. Now there is no sales strategy without a PR & marketing plan at the heart of it.

10 tips for successful freelancing
Abbie Headon
Yes, you need to be an opportunist, and keep an eye out for new jobs and new clients – but sometimes a job will come up that’s not quite right for you, or that you’re busy to take on. If you can connect people together to get the job done, do it. It will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, and both the other parties will think well of you.
 
 
The P word
Cyrstal-lee Quibell
Platform. The rumored King of the successful book deal, wherein an author is assured a potential six figure contract if only they have a mere following of 100,000 or more fans. That should be easy, right? I mean with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat it’s never been easier to connect with our readers. It’s also never been more difficult.

Hello and good morning,

We know that lots of of you aren't in Oxford, but hang on in there... please keep reading as this event has the most excellent line-up of speakers; and is a 3 minute walk from the station - and in our humble opinion is definitely one to attend.

Today’s scholarly publishing ecosystem is facing disruption on a scale that could not have been imagined in the last century.

So what are publishers doing in response?

Join our panel of speakers, including a ‘traditional’ publisher, start-up entrepreneur, and industry analyst, who will consider what the key disruptive forces are. Drawing on their own experience, they will reflect on how we can act and react. 
 
 
 
As Head of Ingenta Connect, Byron Russell provides overall leadership and management of the commercial activities for Ingenta's publisher-facing CMS product, Ingenta Connect, spanning 280+ publisher clients and over 25,000 registered libraries
 
 
Charlie Rapple is Sales & Marketing Director and Co-founder of Kudos, a web-based service that helps researchers and their institutions and funders maximise the visibility and impact of their published articles. 
 
 
Phill Jones is Director of Innovation at Digital Science. He works in the Digital Science Consultancy where he supports publishers with strategic decision making in editorial, marketing and sales, based on scientometric analyses. 
 
 
Further speakers will be confirmed shortly.

We hope to see many of you there!

All the best for now,

How publishing professionals can stretch their marketing budget
Louise Harnby
Publishing professionals – from presses to freelancers – have marketing budgets. That’s because our pockets aren’t bottomless. Furthermore, creating high-quality marking materials is labour intensive, and most of us are time-poor. The question is, then, can that budget be stretched? And if so, how?
