Newsrewired 6 March join us

How to reinvent your mobile storytelling
Fifty-six per cent of UK news consumers get their news via smartphone. Although technology has changed the distribution of news dramatically, most stories are still told in the same way as they were 100 years ago. One of our workshops will teach you how to create mobile-friendly stories using creative visual formats, such as AMP stories, timelines, and more.

How to monetise content on smart speakers
Despite the rise in sales of voice-controlled devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the difficulty of monetising content holds publishers back from innovating on voice platforms. We will explore the benefits of being an early adopter and investing
in audio content.

Where to look for new ways to finance digital journalism
From micropayments and crowdfunding to innovative membership models and crypto-currencies, we will look at successful strategies to finance online journalism.

Why blockchain is increasingly used in publishing
The technology known for generating Bitcoin can also help publishers solve important problems like disinformation, censorship, and lack of trust in the media. Join us to find out how.

Why big publishers need to care about small, local stories
Speakers from BBC, HuffPost UK and Reach will look at local journalism projects they carried out last year and will discuss why listening to regional audiences is vital
for their organisation’s success.

Despite the rise in sales of voice-controlled devices, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the difficulty of monetising content holds publishers back from innovating on voice platforms.

One of the panels at the Newsrewired conference will explore projects by early adopters and look at the benefits of investing in smart, speaker-friendly content.
“These technologies are still at an early stage. We will increasingly use our voice to control devices and access media because it is quicker and more convenient than touchscreens or remote controls”
