Unlocking New Revenue Streams from Your Back Catalogs

What if I told you that within the depths of your publishing company’s archives, awaits an undiscovered treasure trove of revenue? Imagine the untapped potential lying dormant in your back catalogs, waiting to be unleashed upon the world. Curious to explore the secrets hidden within these forgotten works?

Picture this: a world where your forgotten works are revitalized, not gathering dust but thriving in the spotlight. In an ever-evolving digital landscape, where the publishing industry has embraced the online realm, the possibilities are boundless. With digitization, you can transcend the boundaries of time and space and reach wider audiences, discover new markets, and maximize your profits.

As you bask in the success of your current releases, don’t let the hidden opportunities slip through your fingers. Embrace the power of digitization, and you’ll uncover a realm of accessibility that caters to all, from the tech-savvy to those with special needs. The information you possess will become a beacon, guiding readers from all corners of the world to your virtual door.

Accessibility: Opening Doors to All Readers

In a future engulfed with machine learning and artificial intelligence, accessibility has become a basic requirement. Old publications that are available in the physical form are not exactly “user-friendly.” Coupled with assistive technologies, digitized publications can become accessible to all. The information will be available without you having to visit a physical location to obtain a physical copy. This is especially true for books of different genres. One can download, store, and carry eBooks anywhere with ease. Google’s effort to digitize millions of books from libraries and universities may have stopped at 25 million books, but many scholars still utilize the material that was created as a result of Google’s effort.

Different formats of content and the addition of multimedia to enhance the experience are also possible. A digital catalog of old digitized publications makes them readily discoverable.

Old Publications, New Revenues: Monetizing Your Back Catalog

Information of commercial value or potential for a niche group can be monetized. Further, endorsements or advertisements where the information is available can generate additional income. Data analytics can provide insights about user activity, both quantitative and qualitative, to improve the overall user and consumer experience.

Cost Reduction: Saving Resources through Digitization

Digitizing back catalogs means that the physical copies need not be accessed. Optimizing the digitized copies can cut down the costs of printing, sharing, and maintaining physical copies in a physical location. Sharing digitized data does not cost anything and is also environmentally friendly.

Storage and Recovery: Preserving Your Back Catalogs Securely

Physical copies are prone to damage by handling and due to the conditions they are stored in. Digitization allows easy storage in multiple locations ensuring data security by preventing data corruption and leaks. Cloud-based storage solutions make recovery simple.

Marketing Benefits: Promoting and Maximizing Your Back Catalogs

Digital transformations make way for better marketing capabilities and benefits. SEO of old publications enables them to be found within a few clicks. Finding terms or topics is much easier with the right metadata description. Thus digitized content helps in maximizing research efficiency and speed to market.

Old publications are a part of the publisher’s legacy. Digitizing them preserves the legacy and enhances the brand image. Interactions on social media platforms can further promote the content under the publisher’s banner. Online interactions with the content indicate user preferences which the publisher can use to follow trends and drive sales.
