Linux Journal Digital Edition

According to a report in Media Post (03/30/10) citing a survey by Smarter Media Sales, digital magazines have an edge over other electronic media. Four out of five respondents said ads in digital editions were more credible than web ads, and 70% said they were less likely to ignore display ads in digital editions than those on a website.

Pair this with the power of mobile delivery, and you have credible ads presented in an extremely engaging format.
