Earlier this year, after being inspired by Andrew Locks web based tv show, I envisaged doing something similar for my passion and niche. A show based around magic and magicians.
I ran 4 weekly episodes as a trial and garnered around 150 subscribers.
After a hiatus ( procrastination, work and so on) I am now looking to seque it into an online magic magazine. Text and video with a downloadable PDF with QR codes where the video bits are, so that one can still view the relevant video on a smartphone.
Since researching possible 'competitors' and 'the niche' even more I came across this MAGIC Magazine | The Digital Magazine for Magicians I used to be a subscriber of the hard copy of this magazine, and it is considered to be one of the best out there in the field for magic and magicians.
I have so many thoughts ranging from, despondency (due to this type of mag already being available, by a BIG name), to...well it shows there is a market for it.
If I am to proceed, I also feel that 'my magazine' will not look anywhere as 'cool' being on a wp framework.
Anyway, my ask is this...and not wishing to copy the format, just better understand the delivery, can any warrior advise or say what or how the magazine in the above link is produced.
The tools I have are a Headway theme ( previously gabfires advanced newspaper), hosting, domain, evp2
I have invested in 'my success' by purchasing over two years some tools, software, and plugins, all with a view to make my readers/viewers experience a good one. Heck I even have DAP ( but not installed for this site as yet).
I have posted threads previously asking for advice on various aspects and have taken action to push forward, so any advice will be greatfully received.
Thanks for reading and hope there is a warrior out there who can help...possibly mentor and keep me on track.
