0 Comment

Recently I discovered Slideshare and had a good time making a variety of slideshows about my business:

  1.  Das Schwarze Brett Magazine – https://www.slideshare.net/WestcoastGermanNews/das-schwarze-brett-magazine
  2. Who Should Advertise in my Magazine – https://www.slideshare.net/WestcoastGermanNews/who-should-advertise-in-my-magazine-for-the-german-community
  3. Infographic – https://www.slideshare.net/WestcoastGermanNews/infographic-das-schwarze-brett

How to order the Latest Magazine

0 Comment

Ordering “Das Schwarze Brett” for Christmas

Step 1

Visit the www.magcloud.com page

MagCloud Cover

Step 2

Sign up.  Yes, I am sorry, but you are going to have to sign up with them in order to download or order magazines.  They have many to choose from.

Step 3

Find “Das Schwarze Brett” under the name PorterPR.  PorterPR is a name that I used while getting involved in magazine publishing

Two Das Schwarze Brett Magazines

Step 4

Once you have the magazine, download a free digital (.pdf) copy to read at home, or order a printed version, which also includes paying for shipping costs.

Step 5

Receive magazine, read and enjoy.  Ask yourself – Do I know anyone who would like to have this kind of publicity?  Do I know anyone who would like to advertise their product or service?  Is there an upcoming German, Swiss or Austrian event?

Briefly note the date of the next publication.

You can also sign up to “follow” PorterPR on MagCloud, which will ensure you get personally contacted, once the next magazine is published there.
