I am completely new to this industry! Absolutely no prior experience! My background is in Administration/Accounts Payable/Payroll. But I am learning as I go, God is blessing me and making people cross my path randomly that have contributed or are still contributing, in ways that just makes me stop in my tracks and think "Is this really happening!"
The advice I would give if you are starting out and completely new like me is to continue to learn, research, read, pray, remain in faith, and the biggest tip is to keep it simple. If you keep things simple and prepare than you will always be on top. I have general templates that I have created that answer the most common/general questions, if you put the time in and do this than you will always be able to answer promptly by simply copying and pasting. These responses should give as much information as possible so there is no room for a constant back and forth of questions.
Another way I keep it simple is to edit my magazine in the Joomag Crater Editor, although they are limited in their options they do still get the job done. I do it this way because it is pretty basic and I am able to focus on building the subscriber list and social media (the future issues will be created by Adobe InDesign as it produces a more professional look).
Social Media Marketing! Instagram is amazing for promoting and gaining a following all for free. Do some free social media courses, they really help.
Time Management! When you are creating your vision and are doing it on your own and pretty much overseeing each phase you do need an amazing Project Management tool, I use Asana. It's a way of all people who are a part of the team to interact. I use it to interact with our 8 permanent contributors. I can communicate, assign tasks, update editorial calendar, contributors can upload their pitch ideas and articles... just a great tool for managing your team really.
