The digital publishing world changes almost weekly, but we strive to keep abreast of new and emerging technologies and can deliver the most effective app solutions for membership organisations, trade unions and B2B organisations.

We believe in creating communities and promoting engagement opportunities. You can’t always read an iPad in the bath and you can’t watch a video in print, yet readers want to consume content in a time and place that suits them, so an integrated and well thought out multi-platform publishing strategy is essential.

We can build interactive magazine apps for both Apple and Android platforms to give you the widest reach. We can also work with you to create bespoke apps for your members.

Understanding through research

The proliferation of new publishing formats, including digital editions, page-turners, websites, microsites, apps, tablets and social media channels, has brought new challenges to businesses and organisations who essentially need to become publishers. The need to assess – and understand – what readers are thinking is essential to keep pace with both readers’ and members’ changing habits and expectations.

An essential tool
Regular research is an essential factor in aiding the development of a publishing and communications strategy. Well-conducted research is the critical element in decision-making and forward planning. It should, where appropriate, capture all reading, whether it is the printed product, online, or mobile.

Membership and readership research will help to:

  • Understand changing membership habits and profiles
  • Identify development opportunities
  • Deliver membership excellence and help you to be a more member centric organisation
  • Deliver a relevant product in terms of content, design and delivery

We can co-ordinate both quantitative and qualitative research through surveys and focus groups, present reports and conclusions to your team, and help to shape your strategy going forward. Century One can then work with you to plan cost-effective solutions that will resonate with your readers and members.

The team at Century One are specialists in their field, and our small and friendly company is here to listen to your goals and deliver a cost effective publishing soloution to meet your unique requirements. Whether you are looking for beautiful and communicative design, or an advertising sales approach that delivers on targets, you are in the right place.
