Pagemasters Publish celebrates anniversary

It’s been an incredible year since Pagemasters officially launched its proprietary content management system, Publish. We are so thankful to all of the publishers who have come on board and trusted us to build their digital newsrooms.

It’s been an exciting 12 months since Pagemasters officially launched its proprietary content management system, Publish. In that time, Publish has released a suite of product, pricing and design updates that make it even easier for publishing teams to deliver an engaging digital experience. 

 

Having recognised the need for an affordable all-in-one digital publishing solution, Publish combined an easy-to-use platform with slick out-of-the-box designs and an experienced customer success team to help publishers at all stages of their digital journey grow their audience and revenue.

 

To celebrate its anniversary, Publish has officially released its most accessible and flexible offering yet – a package specifically designed for hyperlocals and other small publishers seeking the system, strategy and support to grow and monetise their content. 

 

The release caps an exciting 12 months of product development which started with the launch of the new Publish website and has since included: 

 

  • Three new magazine and news website themes
  • Automated article distribution options
  • New subscription options for multisite networks
  • Recent subscription payments in quick-view format
  • User-generated event listings for publisher approval
  • New section layout options 

 

Building on a client base that includes Monash University, North East Media, Elliott News Group, Forty South, and Newsroom NZ, Publish welcomed another 19 new websites for a diverse range of publishers including a hyperlocal, a street press, a farming magazine, a women’s journal, and family-owned regional newspapers.  

 

The platform also supported existing clients as they continued to invest and innovate, with a shout-out to The Illawarra Flame’s engaging newsletter model, the Taylor Group’s seamlessly evolving multisite network, and Boonah Newspapers, which split a print/digital offering into two mastheads – The Fassifern Guardian and The Ipswich Tribune – in an effort to better represent their increased readership in those communities.

 

“It has never been easier to set up as a local online news publisher yet the suite of tools required to succeed at both audience growth and financial sustainability has been hard to find in one easy-to-use solution. That’s where Publish comes in.” said Pagemasters Managing Director Antony Phillips.  

 

“Our out-of-the-box solution delivers everything publishers need without the confusion of a DIY tech stack and a pile of plug-ins.”
