Most publishers have well-work P&Ls, budgets, and other financial
tools for planning future products and analyzing current ones. But
direct sales, agency pricing, POD, changing royalties, app stores, and
currency exchange rates are just a few of the variables that need to
be added or modified to get a realistic financial picture of digital
product performance. Learn how to assess and update financial models
for a digital and mobile era.
