For those of you that missed it, there was a fantastic New York Times article on Monday about Playboy and Rolling Stone offering decades of their archives on DVD.

We identified 20 platforms publishers are using to deploy and monetize content. One of them is DVDs, but we were specifically referring to video DVDs, like the movies you can watch on a television. Not until being contacted about this article did I realize that DVDs are great for selling archives.
So, without further adieu, here is the newly updated list of 21 platforms that publishers can use to deliver content. This list comes straight from our Multiplatform Publishing Strategy Handbook.
If you are only offering content in a text-based format, then you are limiting your potential audience size by excluding non-readers by default. (Non-readers are not illiterate, they just don’t like reading).
So explore your brand’s possibilities by offering a few more formats. You might be surprised by the results.
