A checklist for creating a publication looks something like this:
Is there anything missing? Yes.
Many people creating digital publications often choose platforms for their creation tools and often overlook a key factor needed to run a successful and thriving publication: distribution. Without controlled distribution, many publishers can find their work going for naught.
Some publishers may want to blame readers with paid subscriptions for freely sharing their content, but they are not the culprits. The blame lies with both the publisher and the platform for not securing the distribution channel for each publication.
Here’s where Joomag provides publishers with a real advantage.
Aside from providing exciting, rich and interactive content, Joomag provides all publishers with a complete publishing cycle that includes distribution. This means that publishers using Joomag can choose the following privacy settings, depending on their plan:
- Public allows viewing access to anyone looking up the publication online.
- Unlisted allows anyone with a link viewing access.
- Password Protected allows only those with a password viewing access.
- Private allows only the account holder, or those with specific permission, viewing access.
Through Joomag’s “Awesome CRM” feature, publishers having the Platinum Plan can tailor their publications to specific readers to sign up, then view the magazine. As an extra security precaution, Joomag also sends an access key to all readers with private and paid subscription so they can choose to access a publication from anywhere without having to log in.
