Digiday surveyed publishing professionals across big and small publishing houses with annual revenues ranging between under $10 million and $49.9 million.
According to the survey, most publishers are optimistic about the new year. Around three-quarters of publishers agreed their ad revenues would grow in 2022.
Around 83% of publishers with emerging subscription businesses expect ad revenue growth this year. Even among publishers that do not rely on consumer revenue, 85% agree that ad revenue growth is on the cards.
The study further found that more publishers are confident about their individual prospects than they are about the media industry as a whole. While more than 40% of publishers strongly agreed that they are optimistic about their company’s prospects for 2022, only 20% felt the same about the media industry as a whole.
