There is no doubt that having your own digital magazine app on the stores allows you to reach more potential readers and, consequently, sell more issues. However, there is an aspect that should be taken into consideration: commissions represent 30% of your sales, which means your revenues will be only 70% of the total price of your magazines sold on the app.
One of the main benefits of publishing a magazine in a digital format is being able to publish your magazine through an app.
There is no denying that digital publishing offers huge savings when it comes to printing and distribution costs. However, it has also ushered in a dependence on Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store to sell digital edition subscriptions.
App ratings and reviews can make or break the success of your magazine app on the stores. Having a highly rated app will help you rise in rankings and stand out from your competitors, while the opinions expressed in reviews play an important role in converting app store visitors.
