Paragon Publishing is relaunching Practical Internet magazine and

is hunting for five sales executives to work across its portfolio of

computer, video games and DVD titles as well as its online

operations.



The new-look Practical Internet will go on sale on 6 April with a free

CD-Rom featuring a web-page design package and a 64-page guide to using

the software.



The magazine’s content is to be increasingly focused towards practical

use of the internet and promises to be jargon-free and easier to read

than its previous incarnation.



After recording a 38 per cent year-on-year increase in its

July-to-December ABC to 21,089, Paragon is keen to build sales and carve

out a niche for the internet title in a highly segmented and competitive

market. The original Practical Internet was launched in 1997.



Editor Mark Newman said Practical Internet would feature more

step-by-step guides to designing internet pages, creating graphics and

using e-mail.



He believes the magazine will appeal to all levels of internet user,

from novice to expert. A new 20-page ’web workshop’ section is to be

introduced, along with expanded ISP listings.



Capitalising on the dotcom boom, the 6 April issue will offer readers

tips on how to raise capital to start their own online businesses.



The new sales staff will join a team of 25 based in Bournemouth, which

sells titles such as PlayStation Pro, Nintedo Pro, Dreamcast and PC

Player.
