NAG, South Africa’s leading gaming, computer and technology magazine, celebrates its fourteenth birthday this April with a number of exciting developments under its hat.
In the first new move, NAG has partnered with On the Dot Distribution (OTD), who took over the magazine’s nation-wide distribution from the February 2012 issue.
Michael James, NAG Publisher, says, “Our new partnership with OTD came about following the closure of the distribution side of the business by our previous distributor, Junkmail Distribution. Having been with JMD for 13 years, the move was significant for NAG and the change in distribution caused an anticipated negative effect on availability and sales for the February issue. However, March’s distribution was far smoother and we are confident that this will be a good move for NAG and its readers.”
In an exciting digital step forward, NAG was launched on Zinio, the leading digital magazine reseller, for the February issue. Says James, “We have already had a great response to our launch on Zinio, so we are excited about the possibilities of this new partnership going forward. With Zinio, our digital readers receive exactly the same material they would in print. Additional exclusive features like video, audio and live links are planned for the future.”
Finally, NAG has also changed service providers for its website, NAG Online. The change was made due to phenomenal growth in traffic that meant the previous service providers were no longer able to facilitate NAG Online. James says that NAG Online is now up and running at awesome speeds, with content updated daily.
He concludes, “These significant developments and new partnerships are all exciting steps forward for NAG and we look forward to new successes as the year progresses.”
NAG’s April 2012 issue, on sale now, is a bumper issue that celebrates the magazine’s 14th birthday. NAG’s annual gaming showcase, rAge (the really Awesome gaming expo) will be taking place on 5 – 7 October 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate, for the tenth year.
