Destinations Travel Magazine has a new format, new user interactivity and a more exciting reader experience!
Unlike some of our competition, that claims to be online magazines, Destinations Travel Magazine is a fully interactive, page-turning, online publication. It is professionally designed and laid out by the same creative people responsible for the design and lay out of our former print publications.
So what's new?
The Magazine now has a more modern, more open, more dynamic, attractive user interface with responsive mouse-over buttons.
Its functions include: Search, Word Search, Bookmarking, Easy Social Network Sharing, Printing, Thumb Nail Overview, Zoom-In, Zoom-Out, Fullscreen Viewing, Page-Jump to specific pages, and it can even be set to Auto-Turn pages.
Flash Effects and Embedded Video Too!
And now, there is embedded video, slideshows, and beautiful flash animation and flash effects right on its photo-rich pages! This provides a richer reader experience and is providing our advertisers new and exciting ways to reach out to their customers!
Our readers can tap on flash effects to activate. They can start a video; they can select images to view from a slideshow and more.
Benefits of Our New Look and Interactivity
Destinations Travel Magazine has a wonderful readerbase of subscribers, fans and followers. Pageviews last year, exceeded 1/4 million, monthly. Since our new platform, pageviews have jumped to 402,00 to 467,000, to over 500,000!
To get the most from the new platform, use a flash player such as Adobe Flash Player (available for free download).
Destinations Travel Magazine is also mobile; it can be viewed on most mobile phones and devices.
For viewing all its rich flash content on Apple products, like iPad, use a browser that supports flash, such as 'Photon.' Use it in 'flash' mode; this is explained in their help section.
Some of our competition is tip-toeing into online publishing - calling it "a brave new world." But, it's not NEW for us. Destinations Travel Magazine pioneered the online magazine, several years ago - as our competition scoffed. We saw the handwriting on the wall, and jumped in 'ahead of the pack.'
We look forward to providing an even more exciting reader - and advertiser - experience as the year progresses!
Destinations Travel Magazine - Inspiring People To Travel... Worldwide!
