Dinniss Communications produces a range of magazine articles from long-format features to industry and brand news, editorials and reader interviews – often as part of our in-house, end-to-end publishing service. Printed magazines provide enduring real estate for owned, earned and paid content – and we are strong advocates for this format, especially when supported by a content-rich digital platform.
The long and the short of it
Long format content marketing, such as magazine articles, is better suited to print media than online – although we recommend having both channels working harmoniously together (often with a QR code linking from the article to a landing page on your website).
People are willing to (and expect to) spend more time reading in print than they do online – so long as they are rewarded for their efforts. That means the content must be engaging, genuinely interesting and add value. If it ticks one, or all, of those boxes, people (potential customers) are more likely to come back for more and, even better, share the content with others in your target audience demographic.
More time spent with your content leads to a deeper engagement with your brand. Readers who feel rewarded for time spent reading your content are already forming a connection to and relationship with your brand – one based on trust and an affiliation with your products, services and the actions you take within your industry.
That relationship becomes reciprocal when readers become customers, or readers who are already customers become brand advocates.
That next step is really down to the quality of your service offering than your content – but don’t underestimate the role good content plays in the sales funnel. It’s also worth bearing in mind that brand advocates can be great subjects for magazine articles; especially testimonials.
