A common dilemma for digital media businesses is how to convert users into paying customers. In a market with exponentially growing options for customers and the constant presence of free offers this is no mean feat.

The vast majority of people who read books via digital formats are still buying paper books too, according to a poll of 1,000 UK adults conducted by marketing solutions and print services provider St Ives Group.
Furthermore, people reading via both formats get through on average 50% more books in a year than those who read only digital or physical books.

The 4% who only use e-readers get through 18.5 annually, while the figure is 17.4 for those just reading paper books.
