    I feel like I have a better grasp on Subscription Website Publishing as a whole. I was unaware that there was so many different archetypes out there! This book will help businesses head in the right direction of what they should be offering on their site, or at least help them understand it better.

    Great job!

  10. Alex Says:

    A great road map that helps you find out where you are on the subscription publishing landscape through finding what archetype matches you, and then helps you chart how you can go from there to where you want to be (or just get better at the archetype that fits you).

    I am reevaluating the way we do our digital magazine, and will be using this report as part of my plan. I look forward to studying these proven methods more closely to determine what it is I need to do to make our magazine more successful.

    Bulks with the advertisers are primarily private house owners,
    letting managers and property agents. You can run your online
    business perfectly in the event you become cordial towards the customers.
    A well-developed business plan is much like your blueprint for victory.
