Pocketmags is the fast growing digital newsstand selling single digital issues and digital subscriptions worldwide through its website, apps and affiliate partners. It allows readers to buy once for access across multiple platforms and devices (Apple, Google Play, Amazon, Windows and web).


It has 2.5 million+ members and in the last 12 months over 50,000 digital subscription sales and 150,000 single digital single issue sales were generated through Pocketmags for our publishing clients - an increase of 32% on the previous year.


If you choose to create your branded apps or digital editions with us, your title can automatically be listed and sold on Pocketmags, and will appear in the format you choose to publish your apps or digital editions in. But you can also chose to only promote your title via Pocketmags in order to extend your brand reach and build incremental sales through this fast growing digital newsstand.


You can choose to create any of the following versions:


Custom tablet edition

By producing pages designed for a tablet screen e.g. with larger fonts and scrolling articles, these remove the need to pinch and zoom. And you can enrich your editions with in-page links, galleries, animation, and streaming and downloadable videos.


#


Enhanced PDF replica edition

You can add any of our multi-media enhancements to your print/replica edition.


#


PDF replica edition

Delivers the ‘flat’ print edition to readers.


Plus: article mode for mobile optimisation

To optimise both the user experience and sales via mobile devices, using an automated process (which we take care of for you) we ‘deconstruct’ the PDF pages of an issue into sections and individual articles with responsive, scalable text and images, making each accessible in a 'snackable', article-by-article, format. If you choose the article mode option, the article reading view is also automatically available to tablet and desktop readers too – whether you choose to publish a custom, enhanced or PDF replica edition.


#


Web based ‘back office’ and CMS

Our web-based ‘back office’ allows you to create, edit and publish your editions easily and you can use any of the range of in-built multi-media tools to enrich your issues.

#


Advertising Inventory

Advertising from your print edition will appear within the pages of your Pocketmags editions. You can enhance any ad using the multimedia options available within the software including galleries and animation, streaming and downloadable videos and 360 degree rotating images (which are great for showcasing products for advertisers).

Promotional Options

You can choose to sell single issues and/or digital subscriptions (monthly, annual or other term) and Pocketmags will handle both the initial payment as well as the ongoing recurring subscription payments and digital issue fulfilment.


Through our own marketing activities we drive high volumes of traffic to Pocketmags. We run PPC Search campaigns bidding on terms such as ‘digital subscriptions’ and ‘digital magazines’ and run extensive email campaigns, as well as other promotions.


We also offer a range of other promotional options you can take advantage of including:


  • Seasonal and special offer campaigns e.g. 24 issues for the price of 12 – you can choose to opt-in to any of our regular campaigns by simply agreeing to match the offer we are running in our campaigns.
  • Pocketmags Affiliate Programme – you can gain an extra 10% net revenue share from sales that come through any traffic you direct to Pocketmags e.g. from any links from your website, or from your email promotions.
  • Risk-free, CPA-based PPC Search campaigns for your magazine brand – Jellyfish CoNNect can set up and run a specific campaign for your magazine. We’ll only charge a marketing Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) when we make a sale – all media costs and our time to manage your campaign are included in the CPA. Once the new subscription sale is acquired, we then work to the revenue share agreement we have in place with you for Pocketmags. For more details please click here. (clicks to Pocketmags PPC page)
  • Special on-site promotions – as your magazine is featured alongside your competitors, you can pay for a special on-site promotion to help your brand stand out from the crowd which will encourage consumers to choose your magazine over your competitor titles. Options include banner ads and ‘top title’ positions on category pages.
  • Email promotions – you can pay to promote your magazine through our email promotions.
  • Hidden landing page promotions – if you want to run special promotions with different offers and pricing e.g. for lapsed/cancelled subscribers, we can create dedicated pages for you to direct promotions to.
