iDigital Edition Offers Magazine Publishers a New Revenue Tool
Digital magazines offer magazine publishers new revenue and publication growth from every issue converted. The iDigital Edition magazine service offers premium quality and revenue results without extra publisher workload.
TEMECULA, Calif. -- Digital magazine publishing is now within reach for small and mid-tier publishers. Using iDigital Edition (http://www.iDigitalEdition.com), publishers can completely replicate their print magazine publication in an online digital format.
The innovative iDigital Edition service converts print-ready PDF files to the iDigital Edition online digital magazine format to provide marketing, circulation, readership, and advertising value to magazine publishers.
The digital magazine replication of the print publication format give readers the satisfaction of browsing, flipping pages, and reading online just as they would a printed magazine. Each digital magazine issue preserves the layout, colors, and quality of the issue and allows publishers to build a complete digital edition archive of their publication for long-term shelf life.
In addition to superior on-screen presentation quality, the new service is unique in that publishers are not required to license digital conversion software or perform setup, configuration, and issue processing in-house. Publishers submit print-ready magazine PDF files and a digital magazine enhancement guide to the iDigital Edition service for a complete turn-key conversion of every issue.
With the iDigital Edition format subscribers or visitors can view the online magazines without being required to install proprietary client digital reader software or download large files to their PC. The digital magazine Flash format insures that availability will continue to dominate other digital publishing software formats and provides the greatest future technology functionality capabilities. According to the September 2005 NPD Research study (http://www.macromedia.com/software/player_census/flashplayer/), 97.3 percent of web users have Flash pre-installed and can experience Macromedia Flash content without having to download and install a player.
Dynamic media enhancements to digital publication advertisements provide strong engagement and result reporting value to magazine advertisers. Advertisers can place dynamic flash, audio, and video multimedia content in digital editions with specific URL hyperlinks. The digital media hyperlinks can provide general performance tracking or may be configured for specific promotion landing pages by digital readership prospects based on an identifiable digital magazine issue.
