Announcing the Tizra Publishing Webinar Series 2017

This September Tizra is launching a new educational program for its association publishing clients and others interested in digital publication best practices. The free series of three monthly webinars led by publishing expert Thad McIlroy is directed to help you become a more effective publishing manager by examining best practices and new trends in online publishing.

The first webinar in the series is "The 5 Top Issues Facing Association Publishing Management and How ToTackle Them!" and it takes place on Thursday, September 28 from 1pm - 2pm ET. Registration is free.

Description:
It’s never been a better time to be an association publisher. The tools, technologies and formats bring information and knowledge to members in record time and in multiple formats. There are challenges, but, as the saying goes, challenge brings opportunity. When Tizra talks with association publishing managers these are the top issues we hear about:
1. Enabling discovery via search and enhanced metadata
2. Optimizing content delivery to mobile devices
3. New technologies for continuing education
4. Marketing through multiple sales channels
5. Dynamic web sites for publication sales
This webinar will review each issue and discuss ways that publishing managers can more effectively address these core challenges. You can register by clicking on this link.

Two additional webinars will follow in October and November: "A Holistic View of Association Publishing" on Oct 26, 2017 1:00 PM EDT, and "Trends in Continuing Education in Association Publishing" on Nov 15, 2017 1:00 PM EST. For more information regarding these webinars, click on the links above.

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.
