New Britain, CT, June 25, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- At a time when things are particularly difficult for magazine publishers, help has finally arrived with a new Web resource called Pubbies. It features freebies for print and online publishing professionals. They range from tutorial articles to extensive special reports -- and more.
The magazine publishing industry has been beset by hard times. Advertising revenue is down. A lot of readers are abandoning old favorites for new online magazines -- and many of those online magazines are struggling to learn the ropes in publishing.
Pubbies was launched in response to a widespread need for publishing help. The site addresses issues in print and online magazine publishing in the wake of the recent publishing and economic crises. The site aims to serve experienced professionals and newcomers to the field, as well.
To cover the basics, Pubbies has many publishing-related articles, with topics ranging from blog publishing to self-publishing a magazine. Other topics include readership surveys, the steps for starting a new magazine, and online publishing.
More in-depth treatment is offered by a collection of special reports geared toward more experienced magazine executives. Topics include editorial productivity, readership surveys, and advertising sales.
The Pubbies classifieds section features job listings in the magazine field, service provider listings, and useful resource links.
Many magazines have fallen victim to the harsh realities of today's marketplace. Casualties include Vibe, Gourmet, Country Home, and Modern Bride. Even the venerable Newsweek magazine is currently up for sale.
Today, the publishing business presents even the most skilled professional with a myriad of challenges. Pubbies now aims to be the magazine publisher's number one resource for ideas, information, and assistance.
