Revenue Magazine Goes Digital!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 10, 2005 -- Revenue, the only magazine focused on the fast-growing field of Internet performance marketing, announced the launch of its digital edition delivered by Zinio Systems, Inc., a leading developer in digital magazine production, distribution and circulation. As part of the partnership, Zinio will digitally produce and deliver the affiliate marketing magazine globally, according to Montgomery Media International (MMI), a Montgomery Research, Inc. company.

While the domestic subscribers and affiliates have received the magazine in a timely fashion, the global community has suffered with long delays caused by the international postal system and higher prices. In response to customer feedback, Revenue is now able to offer this instant solution for high quality reading to its entire audience.

"We're excited to provide Revenue readers with a digital magazine option, especially for our international audience," said Nick Smith, CEO & Publisher of The Montgomery Media Group. "By partnering with Zinio, we can ensure timely delivery of a quality product to our loyal subscribers globally."

The benefits of this program go beyond the subscriber, who will be able to receive immediate delivery of the magazine via the Internet anytime, anywhere in the world. This relationship with Zinio will also benefit advertisers by providing them with the ability to communicate directly with their target audiences, providing interactivity through Web hyperlinks.

"We are pleased to have Revenue join the lineup of over 250 magazines that are now available digitally," said Scott L. Kauffman, president and chief executive officer of Zinio Systems. "Readers of the digital edition of Revenue can now instantly enjoy their magazine on their desktop and can zoom, search, archive, as well as interact with the magazine via hyperlinks and, ultimately, rich media."

Revenue explores the strategies, technologies, designs and best practices that help affiliates and merchants achieve success in affiliate marketing, a fast-growing area of e-commerce in which independent Web publishers, usually operating as small businesses, generate commissions by introducing consumers to the sites of larger merchants.

Revenue is available through major book and magazine dealers. It is also sold through subscriptions, including those offered through the magazine's own affiliate marketing program www.RevenueToday.com.
