Growth was uppermost in the minds of FIPP.com users in the past week (10-17 April), with the post, asking the question, “What is growth hacking, can how can publishers learn from it” the most read on the site.
With only 13 fewer views, in second place, was Duncan Edwards’ column with the header, “In any language, editorial voice is everything.”
Edwards, president and CEO of Hearst Magazines International, is one of several leading industry thought leaders contributing to FIPP.com on a monthly basis. Here are two of Duncan’s previous contributions in case you missed it:

Stepping a way from news, features and opinion, there is still much interest in FIPP’s newly launched Innovation in Magazine Media 2015/16 World Report. Taking in context of all the pages on FIPP.com accessed in the past week, it was second on the full list of pages accessed this week. This is followed by interest in FIPP and other events, available from FIPP.com/events. The most downloaded brochure was for FIPP’s Executive Programme for Innovation and Change, with Oxford University’s Saïd Business School. It is available here.
This week’s round up was compiled by FIPP’s Cobus Heyl.
