Tools of Change 2013

O'Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing 2013
Tizra is thrilled to once again be exhibiting at the Tools of Change for Publishers Conference, February 12-14, 2013.  Please visit us at booth TT 7. Also, feel free to take advantage of our exhibitor discount, by registering with this Discount Code: TIZRA25.

ToC has always been a great event for Tizra. We were there the first time the event was held in 2007.  And just a couple of months ago, we were recognized by conference chair Joe Wikert as a tool that empowers publishers to reach readers directly.

We love being surrounded by incredibly smart people who share our passion for the world of digital publishing. And what a world it's become!

The population of e-book readers is growing. In the past year, the number of those who read e-books increased from 16% to 23%. And this move toward e-book reading coincides with an increase in ownership of tablets and other electronic book reading devices, growing from 18% to 33%. Digital publishing is branching out, with companies like The New York Times, USA Today, TIME Inc, the Washington Post, Vanity Fair -- among others -- publishing their own ebook content. What better time to connect and see each other through all this amazing change?

If you won't be able to make the ToC conference this year, you can always follow our twitter feed at twitter.com/tizra as we'll be tweeting from floor.

Here's to connecting soon and cheers to another great year at Tools of Change!

2018 Tizra User Summit: What We Learned by Meeting Our Customers Where We Are

They say you should "meet your customers where they are." Well, for Tizra's 4th annual user conference we decided to take a chance and do the opposite. Instead of going to Chicago or DC, where Tizra customers are concentrated, we bet on hosting in our home town of Providence, RI. It's not that we don't love Chicago and DC, but we really felt we could do something special with the home field advantage. As it turns out, we were right.

The Tizra user community is a silo-busting mix of creatives, technologists, content strategists and executives, who share the goal of building, engaging and generating value from audiences with digital content. For this crowd, we didn't want a sterile conference facility. We felt that by giving them a place they could really connect with, we'd help them connect with each other. Providence, with its vibrant tech and design scene, walkable downtown, and non-traditional venues, provided just the funky catalyst we were looking fo…

New Mobile-Optimized Template Simplifies Site Design

Pre-designed templates are increasingly popular as a quick way to get new Tizra sites launched, or to refresh the design of an existing site.  A key driver in both cases is keeping up with increasingly high user expectations for ease of use and visual appeal, particularly on mobile devices. To address these needs, we’ve released a major upgrade to our Bootstrap-based responsive design template. The new version makes it much easier to customize with your own colors and logo, improves mobile interaction with the latest version of the Bootstrap framework, and adds numerous other visual and usability refinements.

Existing Tizra customers can try it out now by selecting the “Bootstrap Responsive Template” in the PRESENTATION area. Or if you’d like to see a quick preview, take a look at this demo site… https://abedemo.tizrapublisher.com
