Q&A Magazine Self-Publishing

By Digital Magazines, magazine, magazine funnel, Magazine Publishing, Magazine Self-Publishing, Q & A, Self Publisher, Self Publishing, Self Publishing a Magazine

Self-publishing a digital and/or print magazine has many benefits, including creating recurring income like my client in California, who recently increased his monthly ad revenue from $31,000 to $42,000 per month after working with me for less than eight weeks. We gave his part-time salesperson the proper scripts and tools, and the results followed.

Or my other client in New Jersey is landing big opportunities for his speaking and coaching business that he “never would have landed without the magazine.”

The opportunity is there, but navigating all the steps in the publishing process can be daunting without the right support. 

People like Estephania featured below are why I continue to show up with helpful videos that can help you hit your goals.

This week’s video is a bit different from my typical format. I’m answering questions from the comments section of my channel personally and directly.

There is a massive business opportunity with magazine publishing (both digital and print.)

In fact, we’re seeing members of our community grow with magazine publishing faster than ever before and it almost never includes selling advertisements by cold calling.

“After our launch on January 4th we have received nearly 100 subscriptions!  Now I am getting some requests from advertisers!”- Jeremy Spurgeon, Mobile Musician Magazine on Jan. 7 

(3 days after launching)

Better than expected! When I showed my mastermind group my newly published digital magazine, they were very impressed and blown away! The magazine is going to be a great asset for me to build my subscriber list and grow my men’s coaching program.”  – Dr. Orest Komarnyckyj, The Standard.Academy Magazine

The reason for their success is that they are building multiple revenue streams off of magazine publishing with a “magazine funnel.”

To inspire you, here are 14 ways to monetize a magazine funnel. (I have over 50 ways.)

  • Create advertorials for your new services encouraging signups or trial offers
  • “Stage Swap” a magazine article with someone else who has a show
  • Sell the magazine on your website
  • Interview your top prospects in your magazine to get your “foot in the door”
  • Give away the digital version for free on your website as a lead magnet in exchange for the reader’s email address
  • Follow up with your magazine subscribers with an email drip campaign to your calendar to book people to talk to
  • Create social media posts spotlighting your contributors and ask them to share to grow your audience
  • Send printed copies to your top referral partners to impress them
  • Write articles for the products you love and include your affiliate links
  • Leverage your magazine to get a Media Pass to your favorite conference – provide a write-up in exchange
  • In your networking meeting pitch announce that you are looking for people to interview (who are your best prospective clients)
  • Print a business card with a QR code that goes to your magazine signup optin page
  • Handout your magazine at networking events
  • Print copies of your magazine and bring them with your magazine and leave them behind to impress prospective clients

How to Distribute Your Self Published Magazine

How to Distribute Your Self Published Magazine

By magazine funnel No Comments

Here’s a startling statistic: did you know that the average reader of print and digital edition self published magazine issues is almost one hour per issue? Compare that to the fact that more than half of all web surfers spend less than 15 seconds on a website, and the choice is clear.

If you have a message that you want to connect with an influential and engaged audience, magazines are a great option.

But, once you publish a magazine, how do you get it into people’s hands if you don’t have access to big box retailers or a huge advertising budget?

Watch this video for my top 3 tips to improve magazine distribution for self-publishers.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Creating content for a magazine sounds like a lot of work. Do I have to write all the articles?
With our process, you will leave the heavy lifting to our editing team! Do you have blog articles that are relevant, but not getting the views they deserve? Let us repurpose your existing content into fresh, new articles. If you don’t have existing content, we will show you how to get your industry influencers and key strategic partners to become contributing writers. We’ll even give you the email template to send them that makes this process simple, easy, and fun!
 I wrote a book for my business and that process was expensive and time consuming. Is creating a magazine like writing a book?
The main reason why our clients decide to publish their own magazines is because we’ve made the process a lot faster and more affordable than book publishing. You can have a magazine funnel created and launched for a fraction of the price it takes to launch another book. In fact, it’s so much better, that most of our clients decide to publish a new magazine and refresh their funnel quarterly with fresh content.
 What do I do with the magazine funnel after it’s published to help my business grow?
Using our proprietary process, we will give you access to 24 proven strategies to get more attention, generate more interest, and close more high value opportunities using your magazine funnel. If you desire media interviews, stage opportunities, “foot in the door” conversations, strategic partnerships with influencers, better clients, or just a simple way to stay top of mind with your existing contacts, Instant Media Mogul™ has you covered.
 Who owns the content of my magazine funnel?
YOU! Everything we create for you is 100% custom to you and will not be found in any other publications. This is not an “off the shelf” publishing experience like other magazines out there. You will own everything that is created for the magazine. The funnel set-up will be done on your existing website and tied to your existing email marketing system and social media channels. If you don’t have these tools, we will create them for you.
 What does “funnel” mean?
The Instant Media Mogul™ system is not just a magazine, it is an entire Attraction Marketing funnel system done for you and backed by our 100% proprietary system of 24 marketing strategies. This system is designed to help you get more attention, stay top of mind, and land the business opportunities you deserve. What’s included is your magazine as both a digital and print version, an opt-in page for subscribers, an email nurture campaign, a makeover of your social media pages, a set of social media graphics, and copy-paste promotional posts. We also provide a Media Kit to help you land advertisers and brand deals if you choose to monetize by offering ad space. You also get access to our phone call scripts and email templates to help you land brand deals, contributors, media interviews, and stage time if you’d like.
 Do I have to sell my magazine or do I give it away for free?
Depending on your unique business goals, you could do either or both. Most of the time, our clients simply give the online magazine away for free as a digital download to build their email list. Then they print up a short-run (50 or fewer) and send the printed copies to key decision makers, prospects, and clients. Set up a call with Instant Media Mogul CEO Jen DeVore to talk through what makes the most sense for your marketing plan.

Magazine Funnel – Debut at Dan Kennedy Event

By magazine funnel No Comments

“You attract into your life what you desire and focus on.” This quote by Dan Kennedy became a real life manifestation for me on July 30 , 2020 when I stepped on stage at a Magnetic Marketing virtual seminar on magazine funnels as one of a handful of expert presenters on direct response marketing.

Before I get to that, let me set the background story…

In 2015, I was introduced to Dan and his NO BS style of marketing and business growth when I walked in the doors of one of his national conferences as an attendee. I must admit his gruff no-nonsense style was a bit intimidating to me at first. Dan isn’t as much concerned about your feelings and ideas as much as he is your results. He dishes out tough love instead of sugar coating what you need to hear. I’ve come to love and appreciate that about him and adopted some of his style as my own.

In 2017, at my second big conference for GKIC-NO BS Inner Circle, I started to picture myself on stage presenting my success to the community. It was a way to hold myself accountable for getting real results in my business.

Three years later, that vision became a reality.

Darin Spindler, the new face of Magnetic Marketing™ and my interviewer on stage this week, put it to me straight as we were reviewing show notes when he said, “I’m surprised by you. Dan has always said that women with hyphenated last names are usually repelled by him.”Darin Spindler and Dan Kennedy

I almost laughed as I smiled wryly. I realize I’m not the prototypical woman in business since I am the champion of the “Boss Women Rock” mission and a conservative capitalist at the same time. I love going against the grain.

The reason I was asked to present to the Magnetic Marketing™ member community is because I’ve created a simple yet effective marketing system called “The Magazine Funnel” that helps service professionals build their authority and their email list at the same time so they can monetize faster and without the headache that comes with setting up the tech.

I first built the system for myself and after getting jaw dropping results, created a done-for-you system for clients. Businesses in a variety of different industries are dominating their competition and making the phone ring with my industry leading magazine funnel process now.

I call it Instant Media Mogul™.

Here’s why I created the magazine funnel:

You need to build authority, but your fortune is in your list. Instead of wasting $20K to publish a book on Amazon and relinquishing access to the buyer list, a magazine funnel accomplishes both goals at a fraction of the cost and in about 1/10 of the amount of time.

Here are some of my clients who have benefited from a magazine funnel:

  • a data forensics company whose #1 source of leads (attending industry conferences) was eliminated due to COVID-19. In the first 60 days, they’ve generated 40 leads from their magazine funnel.
  • the leader of a Facebook group who had over 1,500 members, but not one email in her database and needed to sell out her conference and monetize her members. Mission accomplished. She also booked an interview with Jack Canfield from Chicken Soup for the Soul and put him on the cover of her magazine.
  • a famous YouTuber with over 50,000 subscribers who knows he needs to move his subscribers onto his email list if he wants to monetize his new virtual mastermind. The magazine funnel is his bridge to sell more to existing fans.
  • a female custom home builder who needed to dominate the “good ole’ boy network” in her city. Within 2 weeks of her magazine funnel launch, she booked a $400,000 project.
  • a new business coach who needed a way to get booked on stages so she could use speaking as her #1 lead generation strategy. In the same year she launched her magazine funnel, she was booked to speak Internationally and won “Innovator of the Year” for excellence in business coaching (yep- that was me!)
  • an endodontist who needed a way to generate referrals from the general dentists in his community.
  • A 60 year old family owned metal roofing company who has only ever relied on word of mouth and has generated 39 leads from online marketing since launching a magazine funnel. Their roofs are selling like crazy during an economic crisis.

Everything I preach, teach, and practice can be directly attributed to Dan Kennedy and what I’ve learned and implemented by being a student of Magnetic Marketing™. It was my great honor and privilege to share the stage with Dan.

Having your own magazine and an automated system for nurturing your subscribers to the next step in your process is guaranteed to WOW buyers.
