Discover Why Publishing PDF Files In Your Digital Magazine Is A Huge Mistake That Will Cost You Readers And Subscribers!


Your Current Process

You take the PDF from your print magazine and upload it to a third party provider (native apps, newsstand, etc) in the belief that you now also have a digital version of your magazine.

The Problem

Today the majority of digital magazine readers are using smartphones to consume content. Reading a PDF on a smartphone is a terrible experience because the PDF is designed for large print and not a small screen.

The Problems With PDF Magazines

The PDF format is fixed in width and height which leaves blank spaces when read on smartphones. It’s meant for print which also makes it hard to read articles because the text is just too small. It’s also static, boring and loosing readers.

Pinch To Zoom

Forcing readers to “pinch and zoom” to read your content is a terrible reading experience.

Smartphones Readers

Most digital magazine readers are on smartphones so your content must be mobile first!

Too Much Storage

PDF files can be large and take up too much storage space on your readers devices.

Looks Cheap

Readers can see if it’s just a PDF file and this instantly diminishes your brand.

Boring To Read

Swiping a PDF is just plain boring. You need to offer readers interactive content.

Static Content

PDF files are static and by nature don’t flow to fit the readers screensize.

The Solution

Convert your static PDF issues to a responsive HTML format that eliminates all the challenges with PDF magazines.

No More Pinch To Zoom

We Converted Powder Magazine to Responsive HTML

The Team from Powder Magazine came to us to learn if they could speed up their current InDesign workflow. It was very time consuming for their team to make changes to InDesign content because they operated with multiple layouts and a very slow conversion process. 

The MagLoft team suggested that they instead use our Editor “TypeLoft” but we had to convince them of the quality first. Below video was made by our CTO Tobias. It’s fairly long and was meant for Powder Magazine as a debriefing.

Expected A lot More

Flipping through a PDF is quite boring. I was expecting more interactions and video.

Hate Pinch And Zoom

This is 2020 and magazines still expect us to use pinch and zoom to read their stuff?
