What is a digital magazine?

Semiconductor Today is a digital magazine and online resource for the compound semiconductor and advanced silicon industries. With a targeted international circulation, the magazine and online resource provide a highly effective and costcompetitive means to reach your audience. Digital magazines are accessed via a hyperlink delivered by e-mail. No special software is required: the link can be opened by any internet browser. Once accessed, the digital magazine has the appearance of a printed magazine, but on-screen.

What are the benefits of a digital magazine?

Digital magazines offer a sophisticated range of advertising options, such as audio/video content, which can be used to create greater impact. All websites cited within the magazine are hyperlinks, enabling the reader to respond to advertising instantly.

Rapid delivery

Printed magazines take several weeks to produce and deliver, especially to inaccessible countries. The result is outdated content. However, digital magazines can be produced quickly and delivered instantly, even to geographical regions that cannot be served efficiently with printed mail. Typically, readers receive Semiconductor Today within 2 days of it being completed. All this is an obvious advantage to the reader, as well as to the advertiser.

Unlimited distribution

Print publishers limit the number of copies of each issue they distribute to keep their costs low. However, digital magazines are inexpensive to distribute, regardless of reader volumes, allowing you to reach every decision maker and everyone with purchasing influence within your target markets. Digital magazines also enable greater pass-on readership.

Cost effective

Digital magazines are inexpensive to publish; there are no print and postage charges, so Semiconductor Today can pass the production savings onto its advertisers. For around $14,000, the digital Semiconductor Today offers a year (10 issues) of full-colour, full-page advertising (plus bonus print issues), and a year’s package banner advertising on the Semiconductor Today website. All this for around the same cost as other semiconductor magazines typically list for three months full-page colour advertising.
