Subscription Website Installations & Website Redesigns as New Years Resolutions

Publishers are seeing how launching a subscription website is a great way to expand revenue streams. We’ve known that for years and we love seeing these launches continue.

Reaching Digital Magazine Readers: Facebook, Mobile, Ad Blocking

ACEM, a foundational part of the Mequoda Method, stands for “Attracting, Capturing, Engaging, and Monetizing” digital magazine readers. Of course, the key to doing those last three is retaining audience who check out your multiplatform content and products.

New Managing Editor for VentureBeat

VentureBeat is expanding its editorial team which includes a new managing editor, reports Folio.

In addition to hiring Jennifer Tsao as the business and tech publisher’s new managing editor, the publication has added new staff writers after receiving $2.6 million in equity investment.

America’s Test Kitchen Unifies its Subscription Website Model

America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) is now offering access to all three of its subscription websites for 69.99/year. Gigaom reports, “ATK is offering bundled access to all three of its websites, plus a selection of 1,000 recipes from its cookbooks, for $69.95 per year. That’s a good deal because previously a subscription to just one website was $34.95 a year, and if you wanted access to the “Cookbook Collection” recipes you had to pay an additional $15 a year.”

Updated Digital Publishing Suite Has New Potential

The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite made the initial ascent into digital magazine publishing easier for digital publishers. Now, updates have been made to Adobe DPS, which may make the software even sweeter.

From its inception, Adobe was focusing on helping digital magazine publishing work easier on tablet devices. Their reach, however, has changed a bit as they are going beyond the tablets and thinking smaller…smartphone smaller.
