A true digital alternative to print.
Unless you really need to do a print version, there’s no need to do the same work twice. Skip InDesign and forget all about PDF’s. Simply design the experience for the web directly with all the added benefits of digital in mind.
Let your content live forever.
Periodical offers a perfect way to present magazine back issues online. Share them with the world to drive new subscribers, or with subscribers only, to give them that little extra.
Get wiser with data and feedback.
Get day to day data about readers and performance and consider the opportunity for direct feedback to get to know much more about how readers receive and engage with your content.
Reach and engage new readers.
While your articles live in the bigger story of your publication with Periodical, they also live on the web, in a much wider context. This way you can reach far beyond your current readership and engage readers in new ways.
Slow down. Offer the calmness, the immersion, and the space for deeper insights and experiences to your readers online. Not by the minute. But issue by issue.
