Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL), and the Center for Informational Development (CIDM) asked publishers how they are developing and publishing their content in our 4th annual survey, “Following the Trends.” With close to 350 participants ranging from writers to content strategists, information architects, and publishers, the breadth of knowledge and insight was prodigious.
In the past two years, growth in e-book sales has slowed and in some cases declined. Publishers have hailed the shift as a break in the digital revolution, and some have gone so far as to say the digital revolution is behind us. A recent study conducted by CIDM, the Center for Information-Development Management, suggests the digital revolution in publishing is far from over. On several fronts, the survey indicates, the impact of digital formats is just starting to take hold.

You’ve probably encountered a less-than-desirable content experience on a mobile device, like not being able to “pinch” the screen to zoom in and out, or rotating a device and not getting the content to follow suit. You were left with a less than positive impression of that content (and its author), because you couldn’t consume it your way. Time to think about what you can do to avoid giving your readers a less than optimal impression of your work.
