Digital Magazine

Create a Digital Magazine that is Responsive and Mobile-Friendly or Replicate a Print Magazine with a Digital Edition

Get Started

The publishing industry has changed a lot in the past 15 years. Readers across the world now consume content on a variety of digital devices and in a multitude of ways.

While much has changed, one aspect of the experience remains the same, readers still want great content. With PageRaft and nxtbook you can deliver premium user experiences that elevate your brand’s image and increase reader engagement.

In 2020, there’s no reason for your premium digital content to be locked up in static documents.

Go beyond the PDF. Embedded videos, animations, and interactive features will have your readers wondering how you made it all work.

Magazine Publishing Platforms

Nxtbook Media offers two magazine publishing platforms PageRaft and nxtbook.

PageRaft allows publishers to create a fully responsive, interactive experience across all devices. With nxtbook, you can create digital magazines that replicate traditional print layouts. Both digital publishing platforms provide insightful analytics for your online magazine.

These insights go well beyond traditional PDF metrics (number of downloads). Instead, these tools help you better understand how your readers are engaging with your content and for how long.

Designing Responsive Digital Magazines

Tools to create high-quality, engaging digital magazine experiences. Visitors to PageRaft titles stay an average of seven minutes. Searchable archives and back issues help your readers quickly find the content they need.

Whether you're publishing a travel magazine, alumni magazine or association updates, our platforms can uniquely engage readers and keep them on the page for more than seven minutes per visit. For context, the average session duration for a website visit lasts around 2-3 minutes.

Tracking & Analysis of Readers

In-depth analytics and reporting can help guide your magazine’s content strategy and drive advertiser revenue. One of the major advantages of using digital publishing platforms over print is the ability to track your digital edition's performance in real time. Publication metrics can help publishers monitor each issue's health and optimize retention, engagement, and audience acquisition campaigns.

When you track user behavior while reading your digital magazine, you accumulate data on video views, clicks, page views, most popular pages and the time readers spend viewing your magazine.

  • Monitor and improve your bounce rate
  • Set up remarketing campaigns to increase readership
  • Market your readership statistics to advertisers

Secure & Accessible

Adjust your sharing settings based on your marketing strategy. Attract new audiences by choosing to make your content open to search engine traffic. Or gate-content for subscribers only and disable downloads.

With PageRaft, you can design your interactive digital magazine content to be accessible for all. PageRaft is a responsive digital magazine publishing platform that includes accessible features such as:

  • Descriptive text for hyperlinks: With our online magazine publishing platform, you can embed links into the text so readers can simply click without seeing the URL.
  • Alt text for images: We make your interactive magazine accessible by making it simple to input descriptions for photos and graphics.
  • Transcripts of audio or video: PageRaft can integrate entire transcripts of audio or video clips.
  • Reference links: Our e-magazine maker software makes it easy to set a reference link — even if your references are included far apart from the main content.

Create a Premium Digital Magazine Experience for Your Premium Magazine Content

You work hard to deliver high quality content for your audience. But if the content is hard to read on a mobile device or requires pinching and zooming on every page, is your audience going to stay engaged?
