Electronic Publishing Revolution with MagCast

Digital MagazinePublishers with little or no development experience are overwhelmed by the birth of a new breed of readers. Today’s readers are paperless and interactive. They care for the environment and they are information junkies who want what they want and they want it now! How does the average traditional print magazine publisher captivate and retain their existing audience, when their readers have moved into the digital realm?

MagCast is the Answer!

Electronic publishing platforms such as MagCast offer the average publishers the opportunity to turn their boring printed pages into a dynamic digital edition that captivates their tech-savvy audience. In the process of maintaining their previously print-reading readers, they can also gain additional readership by making their digital editions available on Apple iTunes Newsstand, an online ‘magazine store’ if you will.

The process seems a lot more complicated than it really is. All you will have to do is design your magazine as usual for print and then import your source files into MagCast. The system then enables you to develop the magazine by adding high quality images, audio files, video clips and hyperlinks. These hyperlinks provide a great opportunity for you to capitalize on advertising and the ability to refer readers to various pages within the magazine for more information, using the in-app browser facility.

Optimize and Convert to an App

Once your file is optimized, it is the converted into an App for upload to the Newsstand platform from where it will be distributed to readers. Various distribution channels are available for you to choose from. If you have a paid magazine, you can make it available only to paid subscribers. Alternatively, you can distribute the magazine as a free publication or a special edition. MagCast has a special ‘magical delivery’ functionality that publishers adore.


Design your Magazine for your Readers 

Your magazine should be designed with your readers in mind. Don’t change it to be completely different to your print edition, which is already well loved by your print readers. However, add some interactive digital aspects such as a few videos and audio clips that link to pages where they can read more about it. Most iPad browsers are closet readers who want to read what you have to say!

Some publishers have digital-only editions that have never been available in print. This is a very cost-effective way to market and gain a global readership. None of the traditional costs of print and distribution are required to gain a wide-spread digital audience.
