It's been little while since we sent out an update, so we wanted to catch you up on the latest and greatest from the Verily team.
We're busy working toward our big vision: to create a national magazine that provides a truly positive and authentic alternative for women. One day, we hope that you’ll find us on the magazine racks next to the likes of Cosmo, Glamour, and Lucky. To get there, we are currently raising funding through subscriptions and investors to be able to launch Verily into a sustainable business.
Many have asked: "When will we get the first issue?" Trust us, we're as eager as you are! We hope to release our first issue in early 2013, but to be honest we can’t pinpoint an exact date quite yet; we need funding and a growing subscription base before we do. That’s where you come in!
How Can You Help?
Continue to share Verily and encourage your friends and family to sign up for a subscription—we won't charge you until we go to print on our first issue, and those who sign up in 2012 will receive our best list price when we do, so you don't have to worry about us dropping the price later.
Do you work in media or have a blog and want to feature us? We'd love to collaborate! Send us an email if you'd like to talk to us, or feel free to use one of our buttons at the bottom of our contact page on your site. We always appreciate more people connecting with us on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages, so stop by often!
More to Come!
In the meantime, the Verily team is continuing to work on bringing great content to our readers online. A couple of sneak peeks:
Weekly Updates: At the end of each week, we'll send a roundup of the latest articles from our blog to our newsletter subscribers. Be sure to sign up to get the scoop straight to your inbox!
New Website: In the next couple of weeks, Verily will be unveiling an updated website! We’ll be migrating to a slicker format to make it easier to find the Verily content you’re looking for.
Verily Shops: While we love thinking of new ways to wear our old favorites, sometimes you just need to add something new to the mix. We’ve received a ton of requests to help readers find styles that makes them look and feel great, and Verily Shops will be our curated shopping list to guide you on your way.
The initial response to Verily has been tremendous—thank you all for your support and encouragement! We know that it takes a lot of heart and good old-fashioned hard work to start a business, and we’re excited that you’re on this journey with us from the beginning.
