You no longer have to go to the shop to buy a hard copy magazine or newspapers anymore because you can do the same online. This is a huge step compared to where we have come from. You should not take this to me that you do not need a publisher just because you are running a magazine online. There has been an explosion of professionals offering the services and this makes it hard for clients to choose who to work with. The factors your prioritize will depend on your needs which is why you should set them before you start working on getting a publisher. 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.
It is much easier to check through mobile applications because they are personalized. It is good if you are working with someone who is able to transform your magazine into an app. Many of these apps are very expensive but you should be able to get someone who can do this without milking you of every cent you have in the bank. If you want something very fast there are branded apps on many application marketplaces which you can get. Mobile apps are a very big deal for any company in terms of identity just like social media handles and websites. 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. There are two major ways you can pay for the services which include a revenue sharing model and a flat monthly fee. Analyse the benefits and demerits of each before you decide on what you want to go with. Revenue sharing is more preferable because it accommodates you when you are making less money. This is not a rule which is why you can make any choice you want.
