How It Works: The Publisher Perspective

Let's look at how MagCast works from your perspective as a magazine publisher.

Magazines start life as PDFs.

As a platform, MagCast is agnostic as to what PDF creator publishers use, so whether you're using Adobe InDesign, Canva, or even PowerPoint, your PDFs will look great in MagCast.

As long as your tool is creating standard PDFs of 768x1024, MagCast will turn those beautiful designs into pixel-perfect magazine pages for display in your apps.

Here's what it looks like inside

Upload your PDF(s), drag and drop them into place in the dashboard as you see fit, add any links, audio, video, or other elements, and the issue is ready for testing.

MagCast Education: The MagCast Academy & Bobsled Run
Two Courses on Digital Magazine Publishing, Two Very Different Speeds

If this all sounds a bit daunting, you're not alone feeling that way.

That's why MagCast puts a tremendous amount of energy into educating new publishers.

The Academy comes with every membership, and is geared for folks new to magazine publishing.

Each month a new MagCast Academy starts and over the course of just a few weeks, you'll go from newbie to publisher.

Along the way you'll get a custom roadmap tailored to YOUR magazine and goals along with the understanding of the steps to take to create, launch, and market your magazine.

Courses are taught by two MagCast principals, working magazine publishers.

You'll learn everything from how to source treasure troves of great content for free and how to build real relationships with the movers and shakers in your industry to help promote and grow your magazine—and your revenue.

You'll even see how to best promote your magazine EVEN BEFORE YOU'RE LIVE!

Wouldn't it be nice to have people lined up for your first issue even before you've finished it? You'll see how successful MagCast publishers do it month after month.

The Bobsled Run is a condensed, lightning fast, crash course that packs six weeks of deep dive material into fives days, and it’s now open to the public.

If you want to see some of the secret sauce normally reserved for MagCast publishers, register for the next Bobsled Run today. The first session is only a dollar.
