ABOUT THE MARKET:
We’ve recognized that 3D Printing is a rapidly growing global market with considerable potential in both commercial (industrial) and consumer (desktop) arenas. Since its emergence in the 1980’s developments in the last decade have positioned 3D Printing as a valuable technology for the people which will remain relevant to the global economy for many years.
While many news blogs and websites launched in response to consumer demands, but none have thought to filter the daily flood of news specifically for home 3D printing enthusiasts, or to deliver it in a convenient dedicated magazine app.
3D Printing Magazine has been purposely built as the world's first magazine app dedicated to home 3D Printing topics.
Importantly, 3D Printing has proven to be a key element in a crossroads where both Technology and Human Development meet. And history has not ever witnessed this before.
Improved Portable Power Sources
Expanding Internet Reach & Mobile Coverage
Accelerated Social Connectivity
Unprecedented uptake in mobile technology in developing countries across the world including India, Africa and more.
REASON FOR SALE
I would have loved to keep this in my portfolio as it provides relatively stable monthly income averaging $300+, however I need the time to focus on my other magazine app and interests in product development. It is with delight and surprise that even though this app only receives a part of my time and attention, it still retained subscribers and brought me a good amount of monthly income.
I am ready to hand over to someone who can really do justice and reap the rewards of where this publication is capable of going. On my own I have only managed to scratch the surface. I’m confident that you will no doubt have greater profits than me if you implement some of the “Future Opportunities” listed below that I have not achieved.
I knew nothing about 3D Printing when I started this, so I am sure you can do a better job than me. And if you find 3D Printing interesting, your heart is in it, and you want to make a difference in people’s lives, then you should!
3D Printing Magazine was built by MagCast. MagCast (now owned by Media In Motion LLC) look after all the technical app development leaving you free to focus on your creative input and building the business further.
The MagCast publishing platform lets license holders easily create and maintain their app by following clear steps to a few text fields and do the required uploads and downloads in the backend of iTunesConnect. Frequent updating of the app is NOT required unless for iOS/Android compliance. When it comes time for an update you can relax, because all the technical coding is automated. It’s super easy.
BACK END PLATFORM FEATURES, OPERATION & SUPPORT:
MagCast Video Library Knowledge Base:
Because we are already published, the hard work has been done. Now, all training tutorials videos, marketing tools, and troubleshooting videos for both iOS and Android make everything super easy to manage.
I like to create a quality product, and on my own it takes me 7-10 days every two months to keep this going. A small team of three, or a couple will do this much faster, and the publishing platform makes it really easy.
MagCast support provide detailed technical help via email and you should not hesitate to contact them if you have any tech issues at all. They know their stuff and are super helpful.
Private Facebook Group :
A supportive, helpful community of seasoned fellow publishers provide the backstop for support. Group members give generously of their knowledge and experience and many have been through it all since the platform launched in 2012. Share and receive ideas to grow your audience. I will remain a member of this group with my other magazine app if you ever need to reach out.
**Supporting Your Subscribers:
You will need to attend to email support for subscribers. This is real easy as requests for support are just a small handful per month. Most find a solution from the Support FAQ on the 3D Printing Magazine Website.
***Support For Design
A designer I have used previously is available if you need design work. NOTE that design work may still require edits and changes. It is useful if you or your team have some skills in photoshop and InDesign for this purpose.
****MagCast App Rights
The development crew at MagCast look after all the app coding, app features, updates and tweaks, leaving you FREE to get on with business. They provide the entire platform. You own the app, all your .pdf content, your license and the email list.

FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES WITH GOOD POTENTIAL
1. Offer Subscriptions With an Online Web Version
3D Printing Magazine could be readily ported to an online subscription platform such as Joomag to increase the subscriber base.
NOTE that very successful magazines like foundr , have no online web subscription and simply publish on a monthly basis.
2. GO Monthly - Double The Publishing Frequency:
I have been publishing bi-monthly, but a small team could immediately double the income of 3D Printing Magazine simply by publishing every month.
3. Tap Into ANDROID on Google Play:
I didn’t set up my accounts correctly to do this so I let it slide, but all the required graphic files are ready and available to let you launch on Android and reap the benefits of Google's app platform whenever you wish.
All you need to do once you own the app is to follow the simple steps to create your Google Play Developer account. You are then ready to begin creating the subscriptions and in-app purchases for your
Android 3D Printing Magazine app.
4. Sell Advertising space:
Sell promotional space within the magazine.
5. Get Strategic Affiliate income:
Promote special offers and affiliate products, events, courses, .stl digital 3d files, to readers.
6. Launch On Kindle:
Total grey zone for me as I have not explored this option.
7. Form a partnership with a 3D Printing brand:
Another grey zone for me as I have not explored this option.
8. Launch a second and third publication:
A. Ordinarily a MagCast license is AUD $3,564 per year - every year. But your risk is minimised because this does not occur with our lifetime license. This preserves considerable transferable value for any future resale of 3D Printing Magazine app.
B. You will have the rights for three publications within your one Magcast license. Imagine launching two additional monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly magazine titles! Basically just "copy-paste" your operations to engage additional monetization streams. Good potential for the right team.
