Magazine planning has been perfected over decades of iteration, and the very best print-based titles leave a footprint that offers the ultimate blueprint from which you can create your perfect content strategy onlineTo begin to understand how this is useful to you and your business, we must first understand how the process for print works.Every title will have its own planning process, but all will roughly follow a process of templating regular articles and features so it becomes much easier at the sharp end when it comes to idea creation and tactical magazine creation.When a magazine redesign is carried out, the editor and creative team will think about how to lay the magazine out to ensure that it speaks to all the key personas that make up the audience, that it is structured to promote good content flow, and that it can be created with the resources available.This means creating a schematic wireframe, or flat plan, for the title so that those who are creating content have a structure to follow.That flat plan holds the key to their content strategy, and it is this that we want to tap into as digital platform owners.
