Publisha – Create A Digital Publication

Tired of the boring articles put out by most mainstream publications? Why not start your own? Publisha gives its users the tools to do just that. The application helps people publish content onto the iPad, iPhone, Facebook, Twitter, and the web right from their own browser, and makes it easy to create a new iPad or iPod application from scratch. Even better, the digital platforms created with Publisha can be monetized in a snap, so users can actually make money from their online endeavors.

Once you’re a Publisha user, you can use the application to create a new digital publication, or to support the online arm of your existing blog, newspaper, or magazine. Each time you upload new articles into Publisha’s content manager, the application will simultaneously publish those articles across a spectrum of platforms, including your own website, Twitter, Facebook, and any iPhone or iPad apps you’ve developed. Readers will be able to share links to your articles via email, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Digg, and Delicious, and your RSS feed will be updated quickly so your biggest fans will never miss out.

For anyone who is interested in monetizing their publication, Publisha features a number of tools that can make that happen. The application lets you upload any ads you’ve sold yourself and control how they show up on screen, along with adding affiliate links throughout your site that you can quickly and easily earn commission on. By centralizing your publishing efforts and using just one platform to post content across the web, you can spend less time disseminating your articles and more time creating them.
