FAQs

Why do Jellyfish Connect charge a Cost per Acquisition (CPA) or revenue share for subscription marketing? What does it cover?

This commercial model allows Jellyfish Connect the flexibility to apply the required resource, test different keywords and digital marketing channels - all at no risk to you. And it incentivises us to do everything we can to generate as many subscriptions as possible. The CPA or revenue share covers the marketing and media costs as well as our time to manage your digital marketing campaign and optimise your landing pages on our sites.

Why should I let Jellyfish Connect run a digital marketing campaign bidding on my brand if I’m already appearing at the top of the organic listings?

As this is one of the most common questions we get asked, we have created a video blog post to explain: 'Why brand bid when you rank #1 organically?'. You can find this in our News and Views section on this website here: https://www.jellyfishconnect.com/blog/why-brand-bid-when-you-rank-number-one-organically.

What do you charge for selling subscriptions through magazine.co.uk, pocketmags or uOpen?

You pay a CPA (for sales via magazine.co.uk) and a revenue share (for sales via pocketmags and uOpen) - only when we generate a sale for you.

How long does it take to get my subscription box listed on uOpen.com?

You need to first complete the 'apply to sell' form on uOpen. Once you are approved as a seller, we then provide a login to an online account for you to add details about your subscription box (images, description, subscription options and prices) and sign the seller agreement. Once submitted, we aim to get your listing live within 5 working days.

How long does it take to get my magazine listed on magazine.co.uk?

Once you complete our new publisher form, we use the information from this to draw up a CPA agreement for you to sign. Once signed, we aim to get your title listed on magazine.co.uk within 5 working days, but it may take longer if it is complex to set up sending orders to your fulfilment operation/bureau.

How long does it take to launch an app or digital edition with Jellyfish Connect?

We first discuss and understand your objectives and determine the right commercial agreement. An agreement then gets signed and set up fees paid. After that you complete our new publisher form, we provide you with logins for the ‘back office’ and you upload your first issue into the software. It then takes between 3 and 5 weeks for apps to go live as we have to build for all platforms – Apple, Google Play, Amazon and pocketmags - and submit to Apple for their approval. Once authorised by Apple, we then launch all platforms. For digital editions the process is faster and we aim to launch within 5 working days after the initial issue has been uploaded into our system.

How long does it take to get my magazine on pocketmags?

After signing an agreement and completing our new publisher form, we will provide you with logins for the ‘back office’ so you can upload your first issue. After that, we aim to get your title live on pocketmags within 5 working days.

Do I have to pay for updates to my app/digital edition?

No. Once you have an agreement in place, we will automatically upgrade and update your apps as the various app stores release new updates.

I already have an app so how easy is it to transfer across to your platform?

We have experience of transferring more than 80 titles over from various publishers and app developers. We simply update over your existing app and subscribers receive uninterrupted service.

I’m not technical. Is it difficult to use Jellyfish Connect's MagazineCloner platform to create my apps and digital editions?

Our software platform is very user friendly. You don’t need to be technical or have any development knowledge to use it. If needed, we can provide some initial training and our support staff can help with any specific questions.
