Digital Consumption, Particularly Mobile, Drives Magazine Growth

Since its inception in late 2014, we’ve been paying close attention to the Association of Magazine Media’s 360° Brand Audience Report, an innovative data study of digital consumption, as well as print readership, of magazines.

And we’re definitely not the only ones: With these monthly — or, in this case, yearly — reports, the MPA is providing context and parameters for publishers across the industry, not to mention encouragement in the form of consistently good news (on the web side of things, at least). While that good news seemed too good to be true initially, it’s standing the test of time, due largely to the thoroughness with which the organization conducts its research.

Publisher Monetization: Video, Display Ads, Facebook

Popular industry opinion says publisher monetization of video, digital advertising, and social media is a 21st-century challenge. The thinking goes that previous generations of magazines – read: print – were blessed with a much more straightforward task than we have: Produce quality content and distribute it effectively via subscriptions and newsstand.

But popular industry opinion is wrong.

The aforementioned 21st-century challenge is actually age-old; it’s simply the same song, different verse. Or, put another way, the straightforward task that our predecessors faced is still the one we face today: Produce quality content and distribute it effectively.

If anything, you have more options than ever. Readers, do, too, of course, which means you have to step up your game – but the reward is full-throttle revenue streams when you find the right formula. Mequoda can help you with that part. And Digiday – one of the foremost monitors of digital publishing news – can help you track the trends that will shape your strategy. Let’s take a look at quartet of their recent articles.

All online direct response transactions begin on landing pages

Mequoda research indicates that on most websites, a maximum of 20 percent of the traffic arrives at the home page. In fact, on many sites, as little as four or five percent of website traffic arrives at the site’s home page, with the rest arriving at much “deeper” pages.

Unlike traditional direct mail or retail marketing, where the user experience is more linear, every page on your website is a potential landing page. That’s because a landing page is the first page a user sees when entering your site, and a user can enter your site and “land” almost anywhere.
