How LittleThings gained 46m monthly unique visitors in just over a year

We are constantly being told that the publishing industry is suffering, yet sites such as BuzzFeed continue to flourish by finding new ways to create content that people want to share

Stats: how social media brought down The Sun paywall

On 30th November 2015 The Sun paywall will come crumbling down.

It's fairly obvious why Rebekah Brooks made the decision; publishers are nothing without the reach of social media and this U-turn perhaps proves that subscription models need to be flexible, balanced carefully with (increasingly native) advertising revenue.

Is native advertising the answer to ad blocking?

With ad blocking being such a talking point in the digital marketing world at the moment, there has been much debate around what advertisers and publishers could do to help tackle the problem. 

One thing that has almost certainly contributed to the rising popularity of ad blocking software is the fact that many publishers insist on using hideous or intrusive ads in the form of giant flashing banners or autoplay videos.
