Ever since the very beginning we always envisaged Conquista would be more than a magazine. Fair to say, if we had fully appreciated the complex challenges of becomeing an independent publisher that have kept us so unexpectedly busy we would probably never have embarqued upon that particular journey.
But here we are, several years later, a tiny operation, two guys, one mag, still battling the odds to offer an alternative voice to all things corporate. The atipathy of paid-for content, advertorials and click-bait, our editorial policy remains intact and we still publish whatever we want to, for no other reasons than we like it and we think you might too.
Of course, we are not the only entity that has needed to rethink how they operate in Covid times. It has very suddenly become tougher than ever to sustain a print publication. Newsstand sales have evapourated overnight, and they are not coming back any time soon. We've had to completely re-design how we operate.
Our subscriptions are evolving into memberships. If you are an existing subscriber, thank you for standing by us during this turbulent time. You will automatically be upgraded to Tier 3 Membership and receive all the additional benefits immediately. We ware expanding the scope of what we do, diversifying our revenue sources away from such a heavy reliance upon newsstand print sales.
Lockdown showed us a previously unexplored demand for high quality digital content. We will be bringing you more of that and presenting it more beautifully than ever before. We are excited that there will be a host of new and innovative ways to engage with Conquista going forward (watch this space).
For now, if you have not already done so, please show your support by becoming an Official Conquistador. Please share this page with your friends, or consider gifting them membership.
