Issuu Launches Adpages, Combining the Beauty of Print With the Power of Digital
(Press Release) NEW YORK (October 11th, 2011)—Issuu, a leading magazine, catalog and newspaper digital publishing platform with more than 50 million monthly users, today announced the launch of Issuu Adpages, a tool that gives publishers the power to leverage their existing publication investment. An easy-to-use, affordable distribution network, Issuu Adpages allows users to quickly distribute original print materials as digital media presentations. Issuu, which delivers approximately 3.2 billion impressions per month, empowers users to maximize the reach of existing print material with a cost-effective print-to-digital solution that even non-technology savvy publishers can use.
The company, which reaches audiences worldwide, designed the new Issuu Adpages tool to drive readers to customer publications. Unlike competitor digital promotion tools, Issuu Adpages does not redirect users to other pages but rather opens a full-spread digital publication reader with the customer's published print promotion displayed in an easy-to-read format. The Issuu Adpages tool also allows users to find and target their core audience exclusively.
"It's the dawn of a new era for publishers and marketers," said Mik Strøyberg, Head of Consumer Engagement for Issuu. "Instead of reinventing the wheel with a separate and costly digital media strategy, publishers can use Issuu Adpages to convert existing print promotions into a rich media experience for the target audience viewing their publications on the powerful Issuu platform."
With the launch of Issuu Adpages, publishers who use Issuu can take full advantage of their existing investment in print promotions, catalogs and publications. The new tool offers users additional revenue opportunities since they can showcase promotions online via the innovative Issuu platform, a feature that will attract the attention of the medium and large-sized companies that typically buy display ads.
