Alternative Funding Models for Small Magazines

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Small magazines can always use cash, but raising money can be a challenge for already overtaxed small magazines with limited resources. Join Lisa Whittington-Hill on Wednesday, August 29 at 2 pm (ET) for this session exploring alternative funding models for your magazine. We’ll cover everything from monthly donor programs and brand extensions to crowdfunding and online appeals. You’ll walk away with practical tips and expert advice that will help your magazine get more money from existing sources, as well as effectively and efficiently cultivate new revenue streams.
