Media Monday Edmonton: Update #69

Here’s my latest update on local media stuff:

Capital Ideas Event 14
Capital Ideas Edmonton’s fourteenth event: How do I find funding for my business?

Magazine Giveaway from Zinio

I don’t normally do giveaways, but I thought this one seemed relevant. Zinio bills itself as the world’s largest newsstand, with more than 5000 magazine titles available in digital editions as of 2012. They’ve got apps for most major platforms and promise publishers the ability to “increase circulation and advertising revenue” without increasing distribution costs. Zinio was named one of the 20 best iOS and Android apps of 2012.

Zinio is running two promotions at the moment. The first gives you $7.50 off your next purchase when you spend $15 (ends March 15). The second is a 50% discount on select titles (ends March 19). To help spread the word, Zinio has given me 10 free magazine subscriptions to giveaway. All you need to do to enter this contest is leave a comment below with your first and last name by March 18, after which I’ll randomly choose 10 winners. Good luck!

You can follow Edmonton media news on Twitter using the hashtag #yegmedia. For a great overview of the global media landscape, check out Mediagazer.

So, what have I missed? What’s new and interesting in the world of Edmonton media? Let me know!

  1. Hi Mack! Thanks for including BlogWest, going to be a great year again this year! I already have my magazine picked out if I’m one of the successful winners!

  2. Here’s my Zinio contest comment: Your $12 EPL membership gets you unlimited subscriptions on Zinio. Esquire, Natl Geographic, The Economist — I got them all, free.
