Business Week: Will eBay Sell at the Newsstand Too?
Posted on April 23, 1999You've seen eBay the online-auction Web site. Now come July, you can read eBay, the magazine. Krause Publications, a Wisconsin-based publisher, plans to start publishing a monthly magazine planned to help readers navigate the ins and outs of online auctions. Although the name of the magazine is yet to be decided, the name and brand cachet of eBay will be prominent, says the publication's executive editor, Kevin Isaacson. Its tagline will be: Your roadmap to treasures on the Internet. Isaacson says his initial circulation goal is 400,000. Isaacson says Krause has a marketing partnership with eBay, but eBay hasn't invested in the launch of the magazine.
