Publish your own magazine

Getting started or growing your publication

Whether you’ve already started publishing a magazine or you have a seed of an idea for one, it’s impossible to ignore the fact there is a lot to manage – from content and contributors to printers and paper weights. 

Maybe you don’t know where to start with distribution, or legal issues around copyright are keeping you awake at night.

Whatever you need help and advice with, Caroline is keen to help you realise your magazine dreams!

Feedback from our consulting clients

Caroline has worked with a number of independent publishers at varying stages of their project, some with a small seed of an idea through to those almost ready to go into print. Here’s what some of her previous clients have said about their one-to-one session…

Before investing in Caroline’s consultation service, I was overwhelmed with how to build a magazine brand effectively, especially as a solo founder.

The one-to-one workshop, which was split into two sessions, was so helpful. Not only did it serve me knowledge-wise, but it was also good for confidence boosting and brainstorming ideas. I’d highly recommend Caroline – I left both her sessions feeling really motivated, and I know you will too!

My consulting session with Caroline was one of the best investments I’ve made for my business this year. I had several open questions regarding the printing process, distribution, funding but also content planning. She made sure that no question was left unanswered.

I felt like Caroline had really taken heiter and what it stands for into consideration with her advice. It was insightful, straightforward and backed up by plenty of practical examples from her own magazine journey. I feel more positive than ever before that I can make my dream of bringing out a heiter print publication come true. I would happily recommend Caroline to anyone else who’s looking for guidance with their magazine!
