Covering Seaplane & General Aviation events is a challenge! The advantage of being the only up to date & online only news magazine in the Waterflying world, brings news to our readers reliably, every day, but presents unique challenges. Companies, Groups & Associations but also readers appreciate getting a timely response and coverage here.
We are able to bring these news much quicker than many other news outlets, with an average turnaround time of 30 minutes from receipt to publication. Our goal with this, is to establish ourselves as the site for fresh and genuine news from the Waterflying, Business & General Aviation world.
With more than 260 articles published between January 2016 and August 2017, we have reached readers in 57 countries and we are doing quite well with our readers and followers on Social Media & through organic reach.
One of the biggest current challenges for Seaplanemagazine.com are Aviation Events, which tend to create short term social media fireworks, but then very quickly fade in today’s social media landscape.
Only 30% of our readers reach us through Facebook & Co, which shows just how many people love and follow this industry without dependency on social media. While we think that exclusive social media PR is a huge loss for our industry, we nevertheless share our articles on them, too. However, the largest part of our readers come from elsewhere.
Goals For The 2018 Season
- Airventure 2018 & Oshkosh Seaplane Base
- The International Seaplane Fly-In In Greenville, Maine
- European Events such as Biscarrosse, France & AERO Friedrichshafen
To do this, Seaplanemagazine.com needs support from readers and our industry partners. To generate the funds for this next step, we have implemented a free subsciption feature for readers and offer advertising to industry partners. We will not ever require payment from readers to learn more about Waterflying – as this goes against our mission of helping secure #TheFutureOfWaterflying with this website.
Of course Seaplanemagazine.com costs money and lots of time. It could grow and get better, there are ideas from creating reader apps to actually providing live streaming from the larger events not everyone gets to visit. No matter how we turn it, we’ll need to find ways to do it.
In the near future, we will introduce what we have in mind to readers & reach out to potential event sponsors.
Meanwhile, we appreciate your feedback & ideas via Email!
