Fruit-Powered Magazine has blossomed as a free natural health magazine with a focus on a raw food lifestyle for all health seekers since its small October 2012 launch. I know it’s creating an awakening when some among the magazine’s thousands of readers worldwide tell me that one or more of the Magazine’s 100-plus Raw Vegan Transformation stories has inspired them to go or stay raw. Or that an article opened doors in their lives to new ways of thinking about their connection with nature, the state of the environment or how to grow as a person.
I want to continue producing Fruit-Powered Magazine for a long time to show the whole world a fruit-based raw food diet is for all to adopt to feel their best. For this magazine to be sustainable as a business venture and help continue feeding positive global change, I need the help of all the Magazine‘s readers.
Newspapers and magazines across the globe have gone out of business since the mid-2000s because web-based advertising can’t even remotely match the dollars print, radio and television advertising command. Additionally, most websites fold within a year or two because it takes not only a lot of work to produce quality content but a considerable amount of money. Without financial support, it’s challenging for most to continue investing in their online presence. Consider this: The Fruit-Powered Magazine archive boasts more than 725 stories, but all this brings in far less than $100 a month in advertising commission. You read that right, and I’m still making this content available for free because I believe the world needs this magazine!
This is where you, dear readers, come in. Each year, if every subscriber contributed just $10—less than the cost of a single main course at most raw food cafés—Fruit-Powered Magazine would flourish well into the future. I assure you that every penny readers donate will support my efforts to produce and promote Fruit-Powered Magazine as well as myself, the person who packages the Magazine, from vision to delivery.
I plan to devote at least 150 hours over the Magazine‘s 2021–2022 publication year developing two issues running 25,000 words each—the equivalent of two mid-size books—and promoting the magazine’s new and archive stories regularly on social media. In producing the magazine, I will incur significant expenses—for website hosting, security service, marketing and SEO tool, email marketing service and beautiful photographs and illustrations purchased from stock image websites—to bring the Magazine to life.
With your support, I plan, for the Magazine‘s ninth year of publication, to publish more than 20 In Season pieces, Closeup interviews, Spotlight features and revealing, powerful Transformations, giving a platform to folks around the world who changed their lifestyle to benefit the planet, other creatures and themselves. The Magazine also brims with Top Tips, Recipes and regular guest stories by these leading voices in the health community: Brian Rossiter, Don Bennett, Alicia Grant, Chris Kendall, Dr. David Klein, Anne Osborne, Karen Ranzi and Mango Wodzak.
