Is just thinking and engaging in online magazine app development enough? Well, you need to first ensure that your magazine app will have the capability of fulfilling market needs. For example, you need to first judge the market based on the type of content you intend to have in your app. If your target audience is fashion loving people, then your content that includes images and written material needs to target this audience only. This also takes us to the next step about design.
Design & Development
The design of your magazine is most important. This influences how readers will receive your app. Design is also responsible for readability across smart phones and tablets. As mentioned above, target audience needs to be kept in mind while designing your app. Professional help is extremely important for this. Choosing a mobile app development company that has expertise will work wonders for your design.
Once you finalize the design, the actual development process of your app begins. This will incorporate design elements along with keeping the process in sync with your goals. The creative brilliance of designers, combined with programming ability of app developers will result in your app being ready to go on app stores.
Hit your targets with an apt description
Your app description is the first connection of your target readers with your online magazine. This makes it imperative that you have a description that clearly points out the value of your magazine and prompts readers to purchase a subscription.
The important points is to make a mark right in the first 2 or 3 sentences as these will be visible to readers.
With your app now on app stores, it is time to think about monetizing strategies. New apps are often seen struggling to monetize due to fierce competition. Though events, sponsored stories, advertising and subscriptions are usual methods that lead to monetization, competition is fierce in this arena.
When you incorporate adverts on your app, ensure that these do not annoy readers. One important point here is that readers are getting accustomed to advertisements and almost ignore these. However, despite all these challenges, advertising on mobiles is not dead yet.
One method to effectively monetize using adverts is via Native ads that seem to be inclusive of your app's content and do not cause hindrance to readers. Such ads also stimulate people and make them pay attention.
Due to the wide availability of online content that is free, subscriptions are somewhat threatened. So if you are able to generate strong readership, subscriptions will work. However, making your app available only via subscriptions will backfire. One option can be to allow complete access to your stories via subscriptions after making some content available for free.
So in spite of various challenges involved, opting for an online magazine app is the right approach in current times. However, needs may differ and hence, expert advice might be necessary.
