With more than 80 per cent of audience growth in mobile, readers' content needs are neither simple nor do they lend themselves to easy solutions writes John Wilpers.
Readers' content needs are diverse, they change throughout the day, they are situation-specific, and they are both restricted and enhanced by the platform the reader is using at the moment. The editors outline the strategy for successful precision content looking at what content do our readers want, at what moment, on what device and in what form plus how do we best assemble information (tell the story).
The Innovation World Report provides 10 rules of mobile content:
