Publishers Marketplace Tips
Whether you see it as a time of harvest and winding down for hibernation or a period of declining light, temperature and life force, fall is a sentimental season. Our usual antidote is to focus on commemoration, and looking forward to renewal on the horizon, even when events in the world or one’s own life makes it difficult (which is too often the case). Typically this is when we take a brief moment to mark the launch of PublishersMarketplace.com in a different challenging season — 22 years ago, in fall 2001, shortly after 9/11 and not too long after the […]
We have been working away on the big PublishersMarketplace.com redesign since June and over the weekend we went live with some of the biggest and best improvements yet. Everything Dealmakers, from individual pages to the hundreds of customizable lists, now has a new look.

When you bring up screenshot view, where you see “Version:“, just click down on the menu to get the classic image: Also, for those of you who like the “New for you” counters that show the number of recently posted deals (and other updates) since your last visit to the site, that feature has been relocated to the top of the Your Account page.
Last week we went live with the first phase of a big project to refresh and redesign the look of PublishersMarketplace.com. New for now is the home page, everything that displays or interacts with deals, and the menus at the top and bottom of all pages throughout the site. Also new is a choice of formats for the “screenshot view” that helps people share their deals on social media, adding a “new style” design while preserving a gently updated “classic style” option as well. You will see more new page designs rolling in as they are completed and programmed over […]
