Publishing a digital magazine gives you (and your content) an immediate boost in status, authority, and credibility.
Plus, rather than having to write and promote all the content yourself, owning a magazine lets you get paid for other people's content.
No matter how much experience you have as a content creator or producer, you'll be able to do more (and be more!) as the owner of a digital magazine.
Watch your status, authority, and credibility skyrocket like never before (and unlike any social media property).
Magazines are a REAL asset... you're building a brand with assets and value. It's something you can sell.
Collaborators—even competitors—want to be involved with magazines that serve their own target audience. Being in a magazine boosts their authority and makes them look good.
Move into the role of content curator. You're not responsible for producing any content in your magazine (if you don't want to).
Even regular blog content gets a halo effect just by being published in a beautiful magazine layout and has value.
It's accepted that magazines have a price: People have been paying for magazine content for hundreds of years.
No other media combines the real-world prestige and ability to showcase content like a digital magazine app.
As a digital magazine publisher you get the upsides of owning a magazine without the expense.
All this while you're making a REAL business with real assets and value for yourself... not just another social media channel.
And, as a magazine publisher, you're no longer creating all the content yourself. People—even arch-rival competitors—WANT to be showcased in a feature magazine in their niche.
Best of all, you're no longer creating all the content yourself; now you're getting paid for other people's content!
It's hardly news that the pace of change in the world of content publishing is faster than ever.
Four of those changes are converging in your favor right now as a new magazine publisher.
These converging trends mean it's faster, easier, AND less expensive than ever to reach your audience on their favorite device all while getting the positioning and prestige that comes with owning a magazine.
