Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and blogs are gradually taking a lion share of what print magazine use to have. News that people would have waited hours before accessing are now at their finger tips. This has reduced the rate at which magazines sell and sorted after.

This is 2019… don’t start a print magazine business.
Print magazine business is in coma. It will die soon. Digital is the present and future.
Whether you love it or not. Whether you are passionate about it or not.
You Will Fail.
Don’t even think about it. Print publication is in coma, about to die. Tell that friend of yours not to try it.
