Discover Carnival - The Magazine DIGITAL EDITION Ads in Digital Magazines viewed longer than ads viewed within print and other electronic mediums Recent study suggests that people who subscribe to magazines online are more engaged with the advertising than those who read them in print. Conducted by The Harrison Group the study says that 35 percent of digital magazine subscribers pay more attention to the ads than they do when reading physical magazines. It also suggests readers put a high value on ads that let them connect directly with advertisers, a distinct advantage to digital publishing. “Readers feel that the ads are much more interesting, and are much more eager to engage with them because they are interactive,” said Jeanniey Mullen, global VP and CMO of Zinio. Eighty-five percent of respondents said they considered it a benefit to be able to click on ads in digital magazines and interact directly with the advertiser.

According to a recent survey called The Case of Advertising in Interactive Digital Magazines by Josh Gordon, founder of Smarter Media Sales, digital magazines outperform other electronic media when it comes to ad engagement and reader experiences. • The survey found that digital editions readers were 70% less likely to ignore ads in digital magazines than ads on Web sites. • 71% of respondents said ads on digital editions were less intrusive than Web sites, while • 79% said ads in digital editions were more credible or trustworthy. • 63,2% of respondents named ads in digital magazines the most interesting, followed by TV ads (53,8%), Radio (34,8%) and e-mails (22,4%). Banner ads (16,4%), Website pop-up ads (2,3%) and ads on mobile phone (1,9%) were ranked the least interesting.

Digital extras But there’s something else going on too. When you format an online reading experience in a magazine style, it attracts a reading audience. A lot of web sites are designed for grazing, or search-driven content finding. You want to know about the latest events, so you search until you find it. Whereas if you subscribe to a digital magazine on events, you have more than a passing interest in the topic. You’re part of the subscription base, you expect to receive content about events frequently, so you expect a reading experience. A core element is its interactive components on the ad.

The Case of Advertising in Interactive Digital Magazines Study reveals that when digital extras like video and Flash animation are embedded into articles, they encourage reader engagement for both editorial content and advertising messages.

• More than half of interactive magazine readers read the article first and then play the digital extras, but one in five respondents play the extras first. • Digital extras extend the time spent reading interactive magazines by motivating readers to read articles they would otherwise have skipped. • About one in five respondents said they play the digital extra before moving on to another article. • 44% said digital extras give articles and adverts they had no interest in a second chance to be read.
