Promote, Share and Better Target Your Magazines

We’ve made some changes to to make it easier to promote and get the word out about your magazine.

You can add a little personality to your magazine profile page by uploading a custom banner image.  Simply click on Publish, then select the title of the magazine you want to add an image to and you’ll see a new “Add a Custom Banner Image” link at the top right of the magazine page.  You can upload a JPG, GIF or PNG image (790×90 pixels) to your magazine profile.  Magazine banners are a great way to give your publication more personality and reinforce your brand. Note: if you had previously linked to a banner image on a website you’ll need to upload a new image for your magazine.

We’ve also made it easier to share magazine issues with friends, colleagues and clients. Each issue page now has a series of share links so you can promote your magazine issue on Facebook, Twitter, send an email (when signed in) or post a link on your blog or favorite social media site.

Finally, a number of publishers have asked us to help them better target their magazines with expanded category options.  So we recently added a number of new categories to choose from when creating your magazine–Brides & Weddings, Comics & Graphic Novels, Computers, Education, Electronics , Gay & Lesbian, History, Movies, Music, Outdoors & Nature, Parenting & Families, Regional, Sci-fi & Fantasy, and Seniors.

We hope you enjoy these new features and as always we would love to receive your feedback.
