"We are so thankful for all our loyal customers that we want to celebrate all year-long. We wanted to do something big," said Jay Clarke, President and CEO of Magazines.com
Franklin, TN (Vocus) January 11, 2010
Ten years ago there weren't any iPods, there wasn't an app for anything and only birds tweeted. Ten years ago, reading magazines meant one thing: reading print...on paper. The economy was stable, *NSYNC was at the top of the charts and dot-com businesses were all the rage.
Magazines.com thought it was the perfect time to launch an online magazine subscription service. Magazines.com wanted to simplify the magazine subscription process for consumers by creating an online store and providing a huge selection of magazine titles.
And then the dot-com bubble burst.
Ten years later, Magazines.com is still here and stronger than ever. Today, Magazines.com is the largest magazine subscription agent on the Internet, with 1 million active users and more than 2,000 magazines available.
"Celebrating 10 years is a rare and significant accomplishment," said Jay Clarke, President and CEO of Magazines.com. "Most start-ups only make it a year or two. We've made it through our first decade in spite of better-funded competitors like enews.com, the dot-com crash of 2000, and the shuttering of some well-known magazine titles."
To mark this important milestone, Magazines.com is inviting customers to join in the fun of celebrating starting today.
"We are so thankful for all our loyal customers that we want to celebrate all year-long," said Jay Clarke. "We wanted to do something big."
