The pandemic has accelerated the shift from print-to-digital amongst readers and publishers. While some media houses have moved towards a fully digital future, some others are balancing both print and digital. This can be challenging for different industries but with the right tools, you can navigate your digital journey the right way. Are you planning to shift to a digital platform for your magazine?

A digital magazine would carry similar or the same content as your print copy. You can design, create, distribute and monetize your digital magazine online and enjoy a wider audience range. A digital magazine will save you the printing cost and take out the geographical restrictions. They are also popular as they’re more convenient than their print alternative.

How do you get started with your digital magazine :

  1. Content strategy

Having a well-developed content strategy for your digital magazine is key. Much like how you’d need a goal with your print magazine, you need to develop a practical blueprint of how you need your magazine to look like and what your content would come across as.

This involves your ad strategy, placement, design elements, content layering, personalization and other readability, and brand factors.

  1. Publishing tools

Once you have a content strategy, you can move ahead to look for the right technology to support your digital magazine. Find the right content management system to create, distribute and monetize your magazine.

Readers should be able to access your digital magazine through your website, social media channels, apps and any other channel you use for brand communication. With digital magazines, accessibility and visibility are key.

  1. Monetization
