Über The Magazine Manager

Founded in 2003, The Magazine Manager is a web-based CRM solution designed to help digital and print publishers streamline operations in an ever-changing media environment. Magazine Manager’s rapidly expanding product line includes a world-class customer relationship management platform, a robust sales pipeline opportunities module, an order management system that handles print orders, events, and digital products, the most powerful billing module in the magazine media industry, a detailed accounts receivable system, a complete reporting suite, and an audience development platform that includes a landing page management system, email marketing automation, website visitor identification platform, competitor insights, and an email verification program. Pricing is available on request and support is extended via live chat, phone, email and other measures. The Magazine Manager's customer relationship management module enables businesses to build, categorize and search the customer database based on names, phone numbers, emails, companies and addresses, among other categories. Through the creation of ad orders or rate cards and ad inventory management, The Magazine Manager helps publishers streamline the entire print and digital advertising lifecycles. The ad order entry functionality allows businesses to create contracts, insertion orders, and invoice templates for print, digital, and display advertisements. Any type of media buy can be accurately managed, including email newsletters, website ads, events, and bulk media buys. Created with a built-in electronic signature system, Magazine Manager helps to streamline and automate the proposal approval process by allowing sales staff to send electronic, legally binding documents to be signed and approved. Once signed and approved, the proposal will be automatically approved within the CRM, and automated emails will be sent to both the sales rep and the customer with a PDF of the signed document. Thanks to Magazine Manager’s collaborative production and project management module, publishers can rest assured that nothing falls through the cracks. Designed with customizable project stages and Project Timeline, any type of media buy can be accurately tracked and managed, including email newsletters, website ads, events, subscriptions, and bulk media buys. Team members receive live production updates of ad units, submit real-time feedback, and track time estimates of ongoing projects. And, using Magazine Manager’s automation engine, the module even sends out automated notifications about upcoming material deadlines. The Magazine Manager's powerful reporting suite gives publishers insight into performance and profitability. Any information logged within the system can be effortlessly tracked and monitored. Additionally, it comes with an invoicing tool, which lets users filter invoices based on statuses such as open, closed, past due date and more. The Magazine Manager facilitates integration with several third-party solutions such as Quickbooks, Zapier, WordPress, MailChimp and more. The Magazine Manager’s integration with QuickBooks accounting gives publishing businesses the power to perform transactions, collect payments, store invoices, and prepare custom reports based on aging A/R summaries, sales agent performance, and conversion rate analysis. With Magazine Manager's Gmail integration, users are able to send targeted emails to groups of ten through a Gmail account. These emails are then recorded in their Gmail folder. We also have a template editor that can be used for both small batches and individual emails, so users can save email templates for sales reps to use. We’ve also created our own Google Chrome extension that connects a user’s Gmail account to our CRM allowing them to see Magazine Manager notes within their Gmail, add notes to Contact Records through their Gmail, and even copy emails into the CRM.

Best CRM tool out there!

My experience has been insightful, engaging, and successful. I sing your praises to other like businesses whenever I get the chance.

Vorteile

There are so many features and benefits to this tool I am not sure where to start. Well, let's start with the level of customer service your team provides, in terms of knowledge, timely feedback, and incredible listening skills to the point of making platform changes in real-time. The sales reps are typically knee-deep in their CRM and I appreciate the insight of fellow reps sharing input on how to evolve this tool to ensure their success. I have used at least 10 different CRMs over the course of my career and have used both MM and NM- This is by far the BEST CRM out there!

Nachteile

The templates are still wonky and not as flexible as I would like in terms of changing layouts and having standard information feed into each proposal, as opposed to having to fill them in each time. Too time-consuming.

Zoho Expense

Warum The Magazine Manager gewählt wurde

My boss hadn't heard of this platform. And I knew we were looking into other CRM software, so based on my past experience with MM and knowing [SENSITIVE CONTENT]( who BTW- is just fabulous) and how great the customer service was, I recommend this to [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and how it could pull all the work we were doing in multiple platforms under one CRM. Simplify, ease of workflow, efficient processes, and literally an all-in-one. I am hoping more magazines will be open to jumping onboard with MM. They won't regret it.

Gründe für den Wechsel zu The Magazine Manager

MM offers everything you will need to manage our type of business (Magazines-Accounting, Advertising, Circulation, Marketing, and Production). Funny enough the only thing you don't provide is printing and distribution.

A solid product that can do it all, if you can figure out how to use it.

Vorteile

We were managing our printed magazine with a series of spreadsheets on Google until we jumped to Magazine Manager. Now our team has real-time access to billing, contracts, pagination and flatplanning. It hasn't been easy and continues to present difficulties, but overall I'd say using Magazine Manager has been a benefit for our company.

Nachteile

Though they've tried facelift after facelift, I feel that the product is just so complex and has so much "technical debt" at this point in time that it needs a complete rewrite from the ground up in order to feel like a modern product. It is complex software designed to manage complex businesses, but it just doesn't meet the user interface and usability we're accustomed to in 2018.

Why every publisher should use Magazine Manager

Our team has been able to increase efficiencies across the board with Magazine Manager. There is much more transparency into all areas of the business as well as the production workflow. This tool has tremendously helped our sales team, production team and accounting team. We look forward to switching our circulation team and art [SENSITIVE CONTENT]
over to this platform so we can have our entire company operate out of a single system.

Vorteile

Above all else, the customer service I receive from Magazine Manager employees in unparalleled. Not only is it a fantastic software with every capability we need and then some, but the team they have put in place at Magazine Manager is what I like most about working with them. Everyone is so incredibly knowledgeable and willing to jump in and help no matter what the request may be. I don't consider myself well versed in anything technology, but in working with Magazine Manager, I've been able to overcome those challenges and help my team create a workflow that has much more ease and transparency than ever before.

Nachteile

Because there are so many features and capabilities, I sometimes feel as though I am missing out on some of the benefits the software provides. I want to be more of an expert on the software rather than an expert in only a few areas. I do appreciate all the webinars put out by Magazine Manager and am certain that my knowledge will expand as time goes on.

This software changed our lives at work!

Vorteile

Magazine Manager is specifically designed for those of us in the print and digital publishing industry and it is crucial to our sales success. It is extremely easy to learn and apply immediately. With this software, we are able to quickly and easily pull targeted email lists to generate sales, electronically invoice clients in literally minutes, take payments, and with a click of a button know what our clients' ad schedules are, what they have paid and what they owe. It is totally transparent - the reporting for a sales manager - and accounting - is outstanding. I receive as often as I wish emails listing calls by rep, meetings, sales booked, and more. The digital tearsheets are invaluable. Client portals allow customers to upload their own ads and pay electronically any time. It is so easy to create new reports. As a past Salesforce user, this is SO much easier to use and because it is made for ad sales, the company deeply understands the details of exactly what we need from this software. The support team and trainers are outstanding. There is abundant free training with your subscription and online videos available any time. And it is surprisingly affordable! Magazine Manager is a vital tool to managing our operation and achieving our advertising sales success. We switched two years ago. Many times a day, every day, as we work in the software to serve our clients and achieve our goals, we marvel at how easy it is to do what we need and how much we love this software.

Nachteile

There is coordination with accounting required to set this up, but the accounting team also loves the software. It is important to visualize your publishing organization and the hierarchy of products and business units in order to structure the software best for you, but once you determine that, it is easy to set it up the way you need.

MagHub

Warum The Magazine Manager gewählt wurde

We were not able to do many things in P2P - it seemed antiquated and clunky as far as client management. Accounting did not like the software. We needed something more robust and flexible.

Gründe für den Wechsel zu The Magazine Manager

The competitor did not seem as sophisticated and robust as Magazine Manager. The competitor did not seem to have the stability and history of working in the publishing industry with hundreds of publishers - we wanted the benefit of that depth and breadth of experience that Magazine Manager brought to the table.
