The benefits of a digital magazine

For print media, embracing digital communications is no longer a strategic business option, it is a necessity (Argenti & Barnes 2009). But the rise of new technologies has increased readers’ standards. While the first digital media appeared as issue-based PDF replicas, today always-on connections, rich media, social networks and interactivity have become a regular part of the online experience (Smith 2012). These needs can be fulfilled with a real-time digital magazine.

• Publish real-time content and let consumers feed their needs and passions at the tap of a finger (Canada Magazines 2013). • Engage readers with relevant content and add extra content and interactive features that digital provides (Canada Magazines 2013). • Grow revenue with mobile advertising, which is expected to go through the roof in 2016 (FIPP 2013). • Add mobile e-commerce and in-app purchases to your strategy, which are rising steadily because of the busy lifestyles of consumers (FIPP 2013). • Leverage the power of the social web to increase your reach; time spent on social media is set to increase (FIPP 2013).

“Publishers should not rely on the assumption that readers want to be merely readers. They have proven a will to create and share.” – Jeff Jarvis (2012)
