People can now read magazines and newspapers on the internet. It is true to say that this is a huge improvement compared to what was happening in the past. Nevertheless, even the digital magazines need you to have a publisher. There has been an explosion of professionals offering the services and this makes it hard for clients to choose who to work with. There are many factors to consider in getting a digital publisher but the ones you should give priority to should be subjective depending on your situation. The platform should have evidence to show that the magazines are responsive to the clients’ needs. Given the portability of mobile phones, a lot of people are using them to surf the internet which means the display of your magazine and accessibility should be good for smartphone users.
The reason why mobile applications are gaining a lot of popularity is that they are easy to use. First, ensure the digital magazine publisher is capable of turning your magazine into an app. Development of mobile apps is not that simple which is why people pay highly for the services but great publishers will know how to do this on a limited budget. If you do not want to wait forever to get the mobile app running you can visit the application marketplaces which have already developed branded apps that you can get within a matter of minutes. Mobile applications play the same role as social media pages and websites in terms of building a brand identity. The apps give you a new channel to reach out to your potential and loyal customers and increase your revenue.
Before you proceed to sign the contract, make sure you have talked with the publisher about the cost of the services as well as the accepted mode of payment so that you can negotiate on what you do not find favorable and plan on how you will be paying for the services. Some people will accept a flat monthly fee so that you can continue enjoying the services while some will require you to share the amount of revenue you will be getting. Do not be fixated on a certain one to forget about checking out the strengths and drawbacks of each model. Revenue sharing is more preferable because it accommodates you when you are making less money. However, this is not a must and if you feel like fixed monthly charges are the better choice then it should be the way to go.
