I was skeptical when I signed up online for a free subscription to Website Magazine offer oh, I guess about 2 years ago. Like every other free magazine I have ordered online, I fully expected to meet the same fate as the credit card apps and seminar invitations that fill the trash can next to my snail junk mailbox. After all, why would any webmaster want to read a magazine when they can read hundreds of great webmaster resources online?
Here’s the offical line from Websitemagazine.com:
Website Magazine is the one magazine to focus exclusively on the business of running a website: tips for successful websites, solutions for enhancing website traffic, the latest Internet industry trends and statistics, as well as news analysis on the Internet industry.
By providing a broad scope of useful articles and tapping premier talent in the industry, Website Magazine covers all the elements that together make websites successful: search engine optimization and marketing, website design, content management, blogging, E-commerce, online advertising, email marketing, analytics, web software and applications, customer service/customer relationship management, web hosting, mobile web and more.
Surprisingly, when the magazine arrived, I found the articles to be well written and the caliber of the writers to be at expert levels. I learned some things from Website Magazine. Not only that, but I discovered a few interesting items that I hadn’t come across before, not even online. My image of the web as superior to offline media was pretty much shattered. I was not surpised to hear that the Website Magazine subscriber base more than doubled in 2007.
Now I find out that Website Magazine has an affiliate program that pays 2 bucks per lead. So now I have a cool free product that I have personally benefited from and that I can share with Clickfire readers and get compensated. Everybody wins. Unspeakable coolness. If you like Website Magazine and would like to sign up, doing so through our affiliate links on this page will support Clickfire. If you join the affiliate program and use it on your site, let me know how it goes! Good luck.
