Last month we started reaching out to advertisers and landed two accounts. We have much more ad space to fill.
We want to launch this magazine into a revenue producing publication.
With revenue we can begin paying contributing writers, increasing quality content and move from expensive POD printing to printing in quantity and working toward offline distribution channels.
This could be done in several methods, I am looking to project candidates for their ideas.
- A direction is SEO for the magazine to increase circulation but the downside is people don't pay for online magazine access
- Attract and land more advertisers thereby increasing ad revenue
- Attract more people to purchase the magazine through MagCloud
- Attract more people to purchase the magazine through [url removed, login to view] Kindle.
Our main advertising is the attraction of Myspace and [url removed, login to view] network interests.
Please bid your fee based on a flat monthly, how much work and effort as you see fit. If things work out this project would be ongoing for about 6 months.
Or alternatively if you are confident in your abilities please consider a 40% profit share arrangement in lieu of a monthly flat.
