Australian media services company Pagemasters has launched its new website and digital publishing CMS, Pagemasters Publish.
Pagemasters Publish is marketed as a simple solution for publishers of all sizes who need websites that are easily monetised and updated as content changes and readers respond.
Pagemasters has designed and delivered more than 70 news, magazine, university and not-for-profit websites for publishers across Australia and New Zealand and saw the need for an affordable content management system allowing a quick and easy leap to digital.
Pagemasters Publish Digital Services Manager Liam Runnalls said that the company experienced a rush to explore digital publishing through the months of the pandemic. Regional publishers realise they can do a lot more with their valuable content to reach new readers.
“But these publishers need more than a basic WordPress site and once they start looking at paywalls, advertising modules, directories and integrations, the costs really ramp up. We wanted to solve that by investing time and technology into a serious CMS. The result is Pagemasters Publish.”
The company has designed the Publish CMS with a frontend built for modern audiences and a smart, easy-to-use backend for busy and often stretched publishing teams.
Available from $499 a month plus set-up fee, Publish enables digital publishers to:
- create and curate articles with ease
- distribute to multiple sections and websites
- schedule posts
- create events
- easily share content on social media.
It also includes a suite of built-in paywall options, sponsored content and advertising modules, directory listings, real estate plus other integrations.
The NEM team said: “Pagemasters consolidated NEM’s digital media activities into an advanced newsroom content management system which helped streamline workflows. Digital subscription revenue has helped fund the creation of unique content. These comprehensive sites have played an important role in the company’s transition to becoming a multimedia news and information provider for North East Victoria and beyond.”
