Are E-Zines Still Relevant?
(Page 1 of 4 )
Remember when the Internet was new, and everything with the e in front of it was still very exotic and exciting? E-mail, e-marketing, e-tail, e-store, ebook and yes, the e-zine. They swept the Web, they became hugely popular and then, they began to slowly disappear. Blogs became the new thing, streaming video was suddenly all the rage, online forums began to get filled with interactive comments. Some trends are always destined to disappear. Is the e-zine, once such a fad, now passé? Are e-zines still relevant…and still read by Web traffic?
In recent years, e-zines have seemed to fade more and more from the mainstream of Internet trends. Sites which once offered e-zines no longer do, and they’re becoming much harder to find on the Internet. Does this mean that the days of e-zines are over, or should you still put time and effort into maintaining one of your own?
It is hard to judge the popularity and progress of e-zines, unless you’re looking specifically at the statistics of your own. There are some ways, however, to judge e-zine success in general. Zinester (http://www.zinester.com/cgi/pubstat.cgi) provides global statistics which show a steady decline in e-zine subscriptions over recent months.
