Managing the Magazine: The Business of Magazine Publishing
A seven-disk DVD course
Knowledge of good business principles will not guarantee success. But, failure to apply good business principles almost always guarantees failure —or at least, a day-to-day struggle for survival. Learn how to assess the present status of your magazine, identify problem areas, and find solutions. Discover how to lay a successful foundation for a new magazine or a more solid foundation for an ongoing magazine. Since 1999, hundreds of Christian magazine publishers from dozens of countries have taken this course at conferences held in Hungary, Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Hong Kong, Korea, India, and the U.S. The course includes the 100-page Managing the Magazine manual on a CD.
