Readymag is a digital publishing platform that makes it easy to publish and post beautifully-designed online magazines or other forms of stories.
Traditional print magazines may be fading in popularity, but online digital publishing platforms offer opportunities for inventive storytelling not possible with traditional media. There are several sites that allow users to upload their own content and display it in a professional manner, but none is as simple to use as Readymag. The site offers several tools to create a fully-function, beautifully-designed webpage to display your blog or online magazine. The publishing platform was designed in HTML5, offering opportunities not available on other sites. All publications created through the site are also available on any device. Reading through digital magazines published through the service truly feels professional, as if you’re reading something that was published in traditional print form.
One of the most difficult aspects of traditional online media publishing sites is the integration of HTML and other code. Users usually have to have a basic understanding of coding knowledge in order to make their sites look good, but Readymag makes that barrier of entry irrelevant. The site still possesses the tools necessary to design a professional space for digital storytelling, but the only thing you need to do is drag, drop and click. The publishing platform was built by the Readymag team from the ground up, and they truly made navigating the platform intuitive. Readymag also runs entirely in your browser, so you don’t need to download any external software. The cost for using Readymag is also low compared to other sites. Users are able to create and edit one publication entirely for free, and full access to all of the site’s features is $16 per month. I have tried using several digital publishing sites, but Readymag seems to offer the highest quality of content for its relatively low price and ease of use.
