Magazines might be dead but media isn’t
By Christian Eedes, 8 July 2020
According to Google Analytics, we had 28 477 users in June, an increase of 20.5% year on year. We are proud of this given the generally tough trading conditions for media – we are once again saddened to see magazine title closures and consolidations, this time at Media24.
At the end of last year, we began a reader funding drive to cover some of our costs and continue to provide coverage of an industry we all care deeply about. We suggested an amount of R600 a year or R50 a month per individual with a view to achieving a total audience contribution of R300 000 per annum. To date, we’ve had just over 140 people pledge their support. We are most appreciative, but we still have a long way to go to reach our above-mentioned target by the end of 2020.
