Working RE Announces New Interactive Digital Edition
Greater Access to Information/Save a Tree!
By David Brauner, Editor WRE
Working RE Magazine (WRE) announces a new interactive digital edition hosted online, including unique features such as zoom in/out, page-flipping, advertiser “hot” links and more.
WRE is now available in an interactive format in its entirety at the redesigned WorkingRE.com site. WRE continues to mail to its print readership of 80,000-90,000 real estate appraisers and inspectors each quarter.
Going Green-Opting Out of Print
The new interactive digital format offers readers greater access to information (print and online) and the option of opting out of the print edition in favor of the online magazine, saving trees, energy and other resources. The content of the print and online issues is identical, so for readers who access information primarily online, it makes good sense to choose this environment-saving option.
To test drive the new format, go to WorkingRE.com and click the cover image (on the right sidebar). You register only once with an email and password. Once your email is confirmed, free access is unlimited for this and future editions. You will be notified via email as each new quarterly edition publishes. If you choose to forgo the print version in favor of reading the magazine online, simply include your name and mailing address in the login form to be removed from the print mailing.
Print, Email, Interactive Digital Formats
Awarding-winning WRE is the largest circulation magazine for appraisers and inspectors currently publishing and is the only publication offering readers print, email and interactive digital formats.
WRE’s email editions reach 40,000-45,000 appraisers and 16,000-18,000 home inspectors. (Opt in for either edition at WorkingRE.com/Opt-in or email firstname.lastname@example.org with “appraiser” or “inspector newsletter” in the subject. It’s free and your information is not sold or traded.)
Advertiser Access: The new format gives readers instant online access to advertisers’ websites via embedded links in their ads.
WorkingRE.com is an information destination for tens of thousands of appraisers who peruse the special features, sidebars and growing story library. The redesigned site went online with the first interactive digital edition in late February 2008 (Issue 18-Turning Tide: Appraiser Independence).
In the first two full months of publication (March-April), over 130,000 unique visitors perused the online magazine, sidebars, premium content and story library, as measured by Urchin analytics (a Google product). Come see what you’re missing! (Complete access to the premium content and story library requires a paid subscription- $50/2 years).
Two Million Magazines Mailed!
Since first publishing in 2002, WRE has mailed over two million print magazines. In this time, WRE has built a widely respected and well-known brand.
Working RE’s email edition reaches 40,000-45,000 appraisers every other week and 16,000-18,000 inspectors once a month. This is over one million appraiser contacts a year and about 200,000 to inspectors.
OREP (Orep.org), the sister company of WRE, is one of the fastest growing insurance providers for real estate professionals in the country specializing in Errors and Omissions for appraisers and inspectors. Members enjoy low rates, great service and free access to premium content and the 200+ story library as a benefit of membership. Many log on regularly to peruse information on the site. Other benefits include access to group medical (Calif.), corporate pricing on valuable goods and services and savings on approved continuing education in 50 states (online and classroom).
