Starting a magazine can seem like a big step, especially if you're new to the publishing business. Luckily, with MagCast you won't have to figure it out all on your own. Through the hands-on training in the MagCast Academy, you'll have the know-how, the platform, AND proprietary technology like our One-Tap-App-Install (OTAI™) smartlinks, everything you need to go from novice to publisher... fast.
Here's a (small) sample of the many publications that rely on the MagCast. Believe it or not, your magazine can look this good, too! (It's easy to see why so many publishers call us the best magazine publishing platform anywhere.)
Success in publishing means connecting with your audience, and you can't get more connected with readers than by having your app on their mobile device.
Unlike a blog, website, or email list they've got to go back to, your app icon lives on their device home screen.
With a self-healing network of nearly 300 nodes on six continents, your magazine content is always available for readers no matter where they are in the world.
Unlimited readers, downloads, and bandwidth included with every membership.
Unlike other platforms that take a (hefty) cut of your subscription and issue sales on the Apple App Store and Google Play, with MagCast the net revenue goes straight to you.
You pay only the store fees every app pays, nothing more. The rest is yours to keep.
To help you get the look from your magazine you want, the platform supports both PDFs and Word Documents.
Create them with any tool you'd like and import them into your MagCast dashboard.
Then sit back as the platform brings your files to life as magazine pages.
Whatever the reason—even if you just want to know best practices for a certain task, our support team is ready to help.
You can reach us through email, live chat, or through a private screenshare session.
And, there's also a searchable help / knowledgebase, too.
MagCast is developed and maintained by U.S.-based developers.
You can count on us to keep the platform and your app current with the latest updates from Apple and Google.
And, because it's web-based SaaS, publishing your magazine only requires a web browser.
Whatever you're trying to do with your magazine, MagCast has the documentation to help you do it.
You'll find the step-by-step How-to Tutorials easy to follow and the knowledge and insight gleaned from the MagCast Academy worth its weight in gold.
With all kinds of tools built into the platform like our proprietary One-Tap-App-Installer™ links, MagCast has the features to engage and expand your readership.
Combine these tools with the outreach strategies from the Academy for real alchemy
From YouTube to Vimeo to opt-in forms and surveys with MagCast you can incorporate all kinds of modern, rich media and other web-based content right into your magazine.
Or, if you want to take readers to content outside your magazine, you can do that, too.
