My Office magazine is moving into the digital age, leaving print media behind in favour of an online platform.
As of May 2017, My Office will no longer be a print magazine. Exciting times lie ahead as we keep abreast of technology.
Digital media is the new frontier as the number of Internet users crest 3,42-billion – 46% of the global population. In South Africa, spend on the consumption of digital media is expected to rise to 49,6% in 2019, ensuring digital revenues will account for the majority of market share as early as 2020.
shop-sa chairman Hans Servas has issued the following announcement:
Times are a changin’
The board of shop-sa and the publishers of My Office magazine, IT-Online, have decided that the time has come to take the bold step and move into the Digital Age.
It was agreed that the print version of the My Office magazine can no longer keep up with the fast-paced information and technology age.
Needless to say that cost of print, distribution issues and revenue, played a part in the decision.
The final edition of My Office will be published in April 2017, after almost a century of serving the stationery and office products industry.
The exiting news is that from May 2017, a digital version/combination of the already successful My Office newsletter and a revamped Web-site will be launched.
Members and the industry at large will be able to access news, product information, forthcoming events and much more, instantly and continuously.
Advertisers will have ample opportunity to market their brands and products via this exiting medium.
After all, 3,4-billion users globally can’t be wrong!
Here is to the next 100 years!
