Default Hello

Hello guys,

I've been interested in small business and I have wanted to make a company in my field since I graduated. I started an open access magazine and I'm trying to make it profitable. I have had many other ideas but there's only 24h in a day

I hope to contribute to the forum with what I can and to get some help with some ideas.

Can you describe what an open access magazine is? Anyone can write content? I haven't heard of it before and am curious. Welcome to the forum!

Hello tgriffith,

Thank you for welcoming me and for your question.
Open access means that the magazine, or anything else for that matter, is distributed for free. If you check it on wikipedia you will get a more detailed explanation.
My business model is to give the magazine for free and to get revenue from advertising. I have an open thread that explain briefly the mag and my current situation.

Anyone can write content if related with the specific niche. Being open, my intent is indeed to provide people to disseminate their work for free.

Cheers!

Do you have a business plan, and how do you plan to make money? Do you plan to make money pointing to a service or are you planing to sell advertizing?

You must have a plan and than go for it step by step
