Flipboard Magazines provide a compelling way for enthusiasts to organize and share top-quality content related to their passions and interests. Brands and marketers have always been a part of this content ecosystem, as they use Magazines to connect with audiences and communicate their brand story. From showcasing expertise on a specific topic to amplifying branded content and external press coverage, Magazines on Flipboard allow marketers of all kinds to build their brand in organic and authentic ways. Here are four ways brands and marketers use Flipboard Magazines today.

1. Content distribution and amplification

When it comes to building out a robust digital marketing strategy, content is still king. Innovative brands are able to highlight large-scale branded content campaigns and ongoing brand journalism initiatives on our platform by grouping and showcasing their content in Flipboard Magazines.

Savvy marketers use Flipboard Magazines to announce product launches, showcase existing product lines and highlight featured collections. If your business generates revenue from selling products, a Magazine can function as an informational brochure or visual catalog.

4. Media coverage

Magazines are a great way for brands to highlight press coverage to share with clients and consumers. Marketers and communications pros can use Magazines to gather articles and videos featuring product announcements, company accolades, news features and other coverage. 

One of the benefits of making a Magazine on Flipboard is that our topic engine understands the content of articles, indexes them and then surfaces them in the thousands of Topics, making sure that people interested in a topic see relevant stories and related Magazines.
