Newspaper and magazine pubishers – a special breed

  1. 1. Newspaper and magazine pubishers – a special breedNewspaper and magazine publishers are a special breed of people. They tend to be activelyengaged in their local or niche community and ready to facilitate the community’s growth. Yourcommunity might be a local bunch of suburbs, an industry in which you run abusiness/organisation, or particular group of like-minded people who share a particular set ofinterests, from Star Wars through to golf!Publishing a newspaper or magazine for your community was once a very big deal, mostly theprivilege of generational publishing families and rarely a success story from an individual orsmall group starting from scratch. Even as recently as 2004, when I launched my ownnewspaper, all I had to sell were print ads. Later I had a basic website which ran a few ads, butstill that was a very narrow revenue base.With the revolution in media software, hardware and business models, the doors are wide opennow to anyone with a sense of commitment and a mind for business. I learned the hard wayinitially through trial and error. When I had the printed publication (35,000 copies, written entirelyby its local readers well before ‘citizen journalism’ was even coined!) running under its ownsteam a couple of years later, I took 6-months away from the business to meet other publishers.I travelled across Australia, Ireland, England, Scotland, Europe and the USA and met 214publishers!In 2008 I launched EzyMedia, with the idea that other publishers could learn from not only myown experiences, but the notes I took from publishers around the world. How they dealt withcommon challenges, creative solutions they had introduced to get ahead of their competitors.Along the way I have recruited some very smart programmers and talented graphic designers.Concurrently the marketplace has exploded with technology and new ways of producing andreceiving media. What an exciting time to be in the heart of one of the most vibrant and rapidlyevolving industries in the world!At EzyMedia we know publishing. Our clients include individuals, small teams and very largemedia companies with 100’s of publications and millions of unique visitors per month. You see,we come at the publishing challenge from an obvious yet seemingly not-so ‘common’-senseapproach – leveraging relationships.Traditional media serves up content to an audience in what has historically been a one-waystreet; “Here, we know you’ll like this, so read it!” Of course more recently everyone is on theban-wagon for social media, audience dialogue and the really innovative with ‘online-first’. Butwhen was the last time you were invited to submit a full article with images, captions etc., notjust a comment, on any newspaper or magazine website? When did a friend or colleague lasttell you they uploaded an article to their local news site and saw it in print the following week?EzyMedia has been approaching publishing in this way for 8 years now. And believe me, whenyou open that door to your readers, be ready for the tidal wave of content and goodwill you willreceive. 1/3
