Channel Partners Announces Expanded Content Plan

VIRGO, an information distribution company focused on the most innovative and complex business-to-business markets that fuel the U.S. and world economies, announced today that Channel Partners is introducing a new, expanded content plan for 2012. As part of that plan, Channel Partners will be increasing its use of digital elements. In addition, Channel Partners magazine will move to a 10-time frequency in 2012.

We are excited about our content plan for 2012,” said Group Publisher Larry Lannon of Channel Partners. We will be creating more great content for the channel than ever before. The channel has expressed interest in content tailored to the needs of their businesses, which is exactly our purpose. We also will be delivering that content in ways that tie tightly to how contemporary business professionals access their critical business information.”

A 10-time frequency better corresponds to the way information consumers in the channel use information delivered via print today. It also better corresponds to how marketers now use print advertising. Digital technology has changed both sides of the equation.

Today, excellent magazines like Channel Partners are similar to a collection of greatest hits put out by a musician. The magazine organizes and compresses the ocean of information, data and coverage available each day through Channel Partners website, digital newsletters, premium digital products and the two annual live events.

We have a great plan for 10 print editions of Channel Partners in 2012,” said Editor-in-Chief Khali Henderson. Our focus will continue to be on the issues of most intense concern to our channel audience. Those issues include the cloud, mobility, UC, hosted services, managed services, the cablecos increasing activity in the channel, changing business models and compensation strategies, and the opportunities the channel presents for both business and personal income growth.”

In addition, we are adding an accelerated and comprehensive schedule of Digital Issues, Reports, Webinars and other premium digital resources to our content calendar for 2012. We will be providing more content than ever in 2012. And, as always, we are planning to raise the bar qualitatively, too, with more analytical, tutorial and actionable information.”
