Insight On Business the News Hour

Publishing with a Mission with Mandy Houk

If print is dead...as some suggest...why do publishers still crank out exceptional magazines? The answer is finding a niche that is under-served and going for it. In this case Mandy Houk does just that with Des Moines Move. Published six times a year the focus of Des Moines Move is to get school age kids out and moving. While for some that might mean changing the WiFi password at home...this magazine, which goes to kids in school in partnership with the schools, attempts to educate and reward. Have a listen and then...move.
