Before hiring subscription website publishing experts, take this advice straight to the bank.

If you’re looking to grow the most beautiful rose garden on the block, would you prefer to go to your local gardening center and rifle through the rose section to see what’s brightest, or would you head straight to specialty rose nursery, with employed experts in growing roses?

So then why is it that so often we hear of publishers who hire web development companies that have no experience developing subscription websites for publishers?

New Apps: A Digital Magazine Publishing Evolution

What will digital magazine publishing apps look like in the future?

What comes to mind when thinking about the first generation of apps? Over the past four years, we’ve seen this technology change the way mobile devices are used. Digital magazine publishers and brands have developed apps and placed them in digital app stores for the chance to reach new audiences.

First-generation apps were basically what you could expect from new technology. Some had operating issues, including loading too slowly, freezing, and not being compatible with specific devices. Although some app developers have found success, especially when it comes to developing games, there are higher expectations for the next generation of apps.

Online Editors Taught at Digital Publishing Bootcamp

The Digital Publishing Bootcamp has relevance for many online business professionals, including online editors.

CEOs, group publishers, managers, and high-potential employees should be sent to this program, because these individuals are responsible for creating and deploying your digital publishing strategy. Online editors are an integral part of this mix because they are in charge of the content and responsible for using it to build an audience.

Avoiding the Mistakes of Publishing Predecessors

Over the last decade, our consultants have seen many publishers fail in building an audience, and a viable business, online. We hate to see it, we really do. But we need to pay attention to these instances so we can report it to our clients and tell them what not to do. That’s typically a part of our live events; we tell the attendees what strategies they should be using, and which they should avoid, so they can find success in digital publishing.

Digital publishing success is not trial and error anymore. Although testing the waters of new resources that develop is expected, there is a much more elaborate set of strategies that should be the main focus for digital publishers.

Email Highlighted as Shareable Component of Digital Publishing Strategy

Today’s live webinar – Seven Pillars of Digital Publishing Success – features a section on shareability. This pillar dictates the many ways that digital publishers can reach new audience members by spreading content through different platforms.

For multiplatform publishers, the shareability factor isn’t only for digital products; traditional print products, like books and magazines, have a lot of potential. These products can remain as legacy imprints, sold as one-off items, or can be turned into digital products. This route allows for an archive to be developed, or enhanced by more content, and new content utilized for marketing purposes.

What You Need for Successful Email Campaigns

Email campaigns fall into an interesting category for online publishers. On one hand, it focuses on great quality content and intriguing headlines, which is familiar to successful publishers.

For instance, the process of email whitelisting needs to happen prior to ever sending any emails. And of course, a well-designed email template has to be created that successfully presents content and promotional products.
