Summary

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 monetise online content. These interviews appear alongside exercises and action plans that give readers the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice.

With real-world advice and practical activities and resources throughout the book, journalism students and young professionals will find this an essential guide to successfully building a career in the modern magazine industry.
