New Charitable Digital Magazine, Just Cause, Appeals to Advertisers who Want to "Do Good and Do Well"
NEW CHARITABLE MAGAZINE, JUST CAUSE, APPEALS TO ADVERTISERS WHO WANT TO “DO GOOD AND DO WELL -- Dynamic Design and Digital-only Distribution Model Attracts Celebrities, Advertisers
Focusing on “Doing Good” to be Successful --
NEW YORK (September 9, 2009) -- JUST CAUSE (www.zinio.com/justcause), which today launched its September 2009 digital issue, has revealed its strategy for success: “do good and do well.” Powered by Zinio, the global leader in digital and interactive publishing products and services, the monthly publication covers charitable causes and organizations, volunteer services, fundraisers and profiles of “doers and givers,” exclusively in a digital format.
“JUST CAUSE looks at the causes that unite us, and the good that can happen when we work together,” said Alyssa Royse, founder of JUST CAUSE, who believes that the traditional publishing paradigm of printing excessive magazine quantities is both financially and environmentally unsustainable. “Our editorial subjects -- ranging from an intimate interview with music legend Melissa Etheridge and an analysis of the charter school system to a JUST Shopping section and profiles of innovative non-profits -- show our fundamental belief in the importance of strong values and leveraging our lifestyles to do good in the world.”
With hundreds of magazines closing in the first half of 2009, JUST CAUSE is bucking the trend and successfully distributing its content to digital readers. For advertisers, the strong value proposition, paired with the impact of a full-page advertisement and interactive elements, create extended brand awareness.
“We applaud JUST CAUSE for launching its new title in an all-digital format,” said Jeanniey Mullen, Global Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Zinio. “As the publishing industry prepares for a new era in reading, publishers are becoming bullish about integrating dynamic components of editorial and advertising into their magazines and books. Alyssa and her team are proving that they have what it takes to build for the future.”
