Publishing takes creativity, teamwork, persistence, and a little bit of luck. But the real work starts once your latest production is in the hands of your readers. Gone are the days when you dropped off your freshly printed publication with the delivery trucks and crossed your fingers. Now you need the tools to understand who’s reading your publication, where they’re reading it, and how much time they’re spending with it.
Today, Issuu is launching a new dashboard in limited release to give you a comprehensive look at your publications’ performance, from the overall size of your audience to the engagement on each and every page.

With one quick glance, understand the Big Numbers: followers, impressions, reads, likes and shares.
Publishing comes with its ups and downs. See how your content is performing on a daily basis with reads, read time, and impressions, and see which three publications are your star performers each day.
Learn how to drive more traffic and engagement to your publications by seeing which publications stand out for their gorgeous covers, high engagement, and share-ability.
Page Level Statistics
Your publications are made up of dozens, if not hundreds, of separate pieces of content. Understand how your readers interact with each one using page-by-page analysis.
Know Your Readers

Through it all, Jared and Brooklyn Tweed have revived attention in knitting as a form of expression in both art and fashion.
Good Company was started by two friends who made a connection over the love of food. After meeting on the set of an art photo shoot, they came together to create a seasonal magazine that connects readers with beautiful tools, healthful ingredients, and recipes that spark the imagination.
The second issue, Anchor, is now available in full on Issuu. We spoke with Debi and Bobbi to find out how Good Company got started, how the magazine has evolved, and how food can be the key to connecting people.
How did you come to start The Wedding Notebook? Did any of you have previous magazine experience?
Andros Xavier Chan: I’ve always wanted to start a wedding website since my university days. After leaving the banking & finance industry in 2011, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue my dreams. We had a few ideas, and we decided on a wedding magazine.
Chaiyen Wong: I have been working with renowned magazines and publishing houses in Malaysia and Singapore for over 10 years now. I’ve always dreamed of starting my own magazine, I just never thought it would be realized in digital format. We started The Wedding Notebook because we felt that local wedding magazines lacked inspiration. The wedding scene in Asia is booming creatively, but it’s also a very competitive industry. We wanted to provide a platform for celebrating these amazing talents.
Texas-native Chris Brown built his narrative from the ground up. Creating countless homemade zines both inspired by and rebelling against the glossy magazines of his childhood, Brown was enamored by the freewheeling ethos of the 1960s and 70s. Paving his own way as a self-taught graphic designer, his journey as a designer, curator, and artist reflected elements of a proud, singularly American tradition - and one that deserved documentation. In 2008, he started Refueled Magazine, a testament to the legacy of American craftsmanship, ingenuity, and bravado.
