Amazon has taken its next big step in dominating the e-book market with its release of 'Kindle Unlimited', which allows subscribers unlimited access to e-books, for $9.99 a month.
Although currently limited to the US, Amazon's new service has the potential to dramatically alter the way books are consumed. The subscription model itself is not a new one; companies like Spotify are well-known for changing the way we listen to and purchase music. More recently, ventures like Readly, a subscription-based magazine service, have taken steps to translate this into the Digital Publishing world.
Each year Memcom hosts a conference that welcomes around 200 delegates from membership organisations across the UK. This is then followed by a sit down lunch and awards ceremony.
Despite Page Lizard not being a membership organisation ourselves, we still like to lend a helping claw to those who need it. Our aim at Memcom 2014 was to reach out to membership organisations who are delving into their bright digital publishing future head first but aren't actually sure how to engage, grow and retain their audiences.
