Fortunately there are many ways to earn money from your iPad Magazine. You can use one or all of the following ways to earn money from your iPad magazine.
• Sell Subscriptions – Offering your magazine at a subscription rate, where the readers get automatic delivery of new magazines for a monthly fee is a great way to make money for your digital iPad magazine. Getting your magazine listed on the Apple News Stand is an excellent way to earn money. You’ll get a percentage of sales, and since they already have a large audience, finding yours won’t be as hard as you might think.
