The Future of Magazines and Blogging- Micro-Magazines

May 6th, 2010 · No Comments · Ideas

This is another brilliant idea via Seth Godin, PDF Micro-Magazines.

Here is what Seth Godin wrote:

While there are still people hoping to make a living writing a blog (not as a tool for something else, but as an end into itself), that’s awfully difficult to do. Micro-magazines, on the other hand, feel very different to me. They have elements that make them very attractive to advertisers and readers.

I’ll define one as:

  • Being digital (probably a PDF), that’s free to ‘print’, fast to make and easy to share. (Newsweek spends seventeen million dollars a year on paper.)
  • Having subscribers, either by email or RSS
  • Focused on issues that appeal to some, but not all
  • Having a very specific audience (call it a tribe)
  • Enabling that tribe to connect by sharing the ideas in the magazine among them, as well as supporting it with a forum or blog
  • Containing ads that are relevant to that audience
  • Being longer than 140 characters or even a blog post, so significant ideas can be exposed in detail

Godin also has found a perfect example of one of these Micro-Magazines, Fear.less. The PDF magazine has a beautiful design and professional quality articles. Truly a fantastic business model for so many niches.

RSS feeds and blogs are a good fast way to get information but there is definitely a need for professional level content somewhere in the middle between magazines and blogs. This is a great opportunity for aspiring publisher/ entrepreneurs. This format is also likely to reach a much larger audience of readers who are not comfortable with social media yet. It is a familiar magazine format, except it is delivered digitally. Advertising definitely makes sense for targeted publications like this.

There are variant having a good reputation online drugstores. However several aren’t drugstores at all. Amoxil is medications that fights bacteria. These drugs does not treat several infection like a common cold. Typically, if you have lost the desirability to a particular partner, medicaments like Kamagra to improve potency is unlikely to help him back. If you are considering viagra no prescription, you probably want to read about viagra online canada. What is the most significant info you should know about generic viagra canada? The most great question you must look for is undefined. The most common sexual problems in men are erectile dysfunction and inhibited sexual wish. Having erectile dysfunction can certainly complicate romance. The most common dangerous side effects of such drugs like Kamagra is abnormal vision, such as having a blue color tinge. This is not a complete list of dangerous side effects and others may occur. Don’t forget, the only way to avoid supposititious medicines is to get prescription medicaments like Kamagra from a trusted online drugstore with which you are friendly.
