The Blood-Horse Announces New Electronic Edition - Coming Summer 2004
Horse Press Release
LEXINGTON, KY-- Blood-Horse Publications, a multimedia publishing company that traces its roots to 1916, announces The Blood-Horse Electronic Edition: a complete digital edition of The Blood-Horse magazine, the Thoroughbred industry's leading news and information magazine, coming Summer 2004. The Blood-Horse is the second North American equine publication to offer an electronic edition. Earlier this month, The Horse: Your Guide To Equine Health Care, also published by Blood-Horse Publications, launched an electronic edition.
An electronic edition of a publication is not a Web site but rather an exact digital copy of the printed magazine that is downloaded to a subscriber's personal computer. It can be downloaded instantly anywhere in the world and is completely searchable. It is ideal for subscribers who experience mail delivery delays and for subscribers who live in foreign countries.
Major features of The Blood-Horse Electronic Edition will include:
* Instant Delivery: Subscribers around the globe will receive same day delivery.
* Comfortable and Efficient: Provides the same user comfort as its printed counterpart with additional efficient and interactive features.
* Searchable: Readers can instantly research topics in both current and past issues.
* Easy to Use: Subscribers receive a free personalized copy of NewsStand Reader software to download, read, and manage their issues.
* Economical: Subscribers in North America, Europe, Asia-or anywhere else in the world-pay the same annual subscription price.
"In addition to being so useful to our subscribers, the electronic edition will also give our advertisers a real bonus. Electronic Edition readers will be able to actually click on an advertiser's ad and jump directly to that advertiser's Web site, serving both the reader and the advertiser," noted Jim Cox, advertising director for Blood-Horse Publications. "Offering this revolutionary new electronic edition is just one more reason that Blood-Horse Publications is the time-honored industry leader in delivering news and information to the largest audience available."
