A major challenge facing print publishers is how to keep pace with the latest developments from internet titans like Google and Amazon, while increasing readership. To remain relevant, it will be increasingly important for publishers to incorporate new services into their digital properties, partnerships, and sales channels. Whether it is digitally delivered books, online book search, or expanded marketing and channel options, new digital technologies will help book publishers captivate a new generation of customers.
