Avoid migrating data from spreadsheets and email marketing platforms
During any given year, a publishing business will generate a lot of data. Managing client lists and ad bookings in spreadsheets or simple CRM systems, or subscription lists in an email marketing list, may sound like a great idea for starting out. In reality, you will be spending a lot of time managing the spreadsheets, you may make errors in them and in the end you will have to spend a lot of time to clean the data and make it ready for being migrated a to solid magazine publishing platform when that day comes.
