Every media is supposed to respond to the demands of three audiences: authors, sponsors and readers. Due to plenty of reasons the printed media market has been facing a decline for several years now. But digital software has something to offer to all of the market players.

When we took on Salon, we clearly understood that this magazine requires a more effective, or, frankly speaking, brand new business model. Implementation of the augmented reality technology essentially increases the printed magazine’s capabilities with dynamic content. As a result, we’ve developed a modern and sound web-site that gains for its owners the new level of revenues.

To promote the web-site and the online shop of Salon, we’ve made use of traditional tools of digital marketing. To correspond to the dynamic environment, day by day we are introducing innovative technologies to improve our monetisation models.

The name of Salon’s been the prominent brand for ages. In design and architecture we’ve been always ahead of our rivals. In the magazine one can find only world renowned professionals, latest tendencies and best quality goods. The perfect content had to obtain appropriate form, disposable and convenient for our readers. That’s why we entered Internet.

From now on authors can add information on the daily basis. Readers got access to all the issues published since 2005. Advertisers are able to directly offer their goods through the online shop and interactive banners. Designers post their portfolios.

Even simple visitors of the web-site can share their news. We have completely rebuilt our business on the basis of digital technologies. At the present moment, Salon is not just a magazine, but a daily source of information, getting together the community of the people connected to interior and design.
