Frequently Asked Questions

How do digital magazines work?

How much does it cost to start a digital magazine?

Online magazines work much like their physical counterparts with flippable pages, but are designed for computers, phones, tablets, and other digital devices instead of paper. A digital format holds many exciting advantages over print; for example, there are no printing costs, distribution is free, content is dynamic instead of static, and you have access to performance analytics. 

If you’re transitioning from print to digital, you can save a significant amount of money by handling distribution yourself or with a digital publishing service. You’ll need to hire a team of writers, editors, and designers if you’re launching a new magazine on your own, but Joomag can help offload all or part of the design work at a fraction of the cost. Check out our professional services page for more details. 

What are the benefits of digital magazines vs. print? 

No printing costs, instant distribution, the ability to edit content on the fly (even after distribution), worldwide coverage, more markets to reach, valuable insights into reader behavior, and less logistical headaches are just some of the benefits of publishing a digital magazine.   

Does Joomag offer print and digital services?

Absolutely. One of our customers, HP, publishes its brand publication online and also prints around 700 copies regularly. But what works for you will largely depend on your audience. People have their own preferences, and while print circulation is shrinking, many still enjoy having a physical magazine in their hands. While providing online access is crucial these days, it’s important that we still give our customers print and digital options.
