The fundamental changes that the comprehensive and transformational growth of digital has bought to almost all industries are resulting in the advent of brands and properties becoming media publishers/owners in their own right. This is the natural progression of investment in their digital platforms, content marketing and social media marketing, and there is a very real opportunity for brands to think like publishers to grow, engage and monetise their digital audiences, turning what was once perceived as a marketing cost into a profitable business unit in its own right. Doing so, as any media company (large or small, digitally native or not) can attest to, is no easy undertaking. This paper is a simple guide on how properties and brands can go about developing and monetising their digital platforms and audiences.
