Business Strategies for Magazine Publishing
Authors: Hogarth, M.
Place of Publication: Oxford
Business Strategies for Magazine Publishing explores tactics for creating financially sustainable publications in the 21st Century. Mary Hogarth, media specialist, Senior Fellow (HEA) and lecturer in Journalism at Bournemouth University, analyses the historical development of the magazine industry, as well as current and future challenges for publishers, to illustrate different approaches to revenue generation and the maintenance of magazine brands.
The book examines the wide-ranging impact of digital technology on how magazine content is consumed, revealing the dramatic consequences for advertising, distribution and marketing strategies. Traditional business models are evaluated alongside new online approaches and readers will be introduced to the Magazine Publishing Strategic Quadrant, a model created by the author as an alternative to the Business Canvas Model. In addition, in-depth interviews with high-profile industry figureheads and magazine editors, such as Jessica Strawser of Writer’s Digest and former Good Housekeeping Editorial Director, Lindsay Nicholson, offer readers an insight into how to produce and monetize online content. These interviews appear alongside exercises and action plans which give readers the opportunity to put what they’ve learned into practice.
