New Magazine, billionaire500.com appeals to the seriously wealthy.

Pressbox (Press Release) -
Billionaire500.com has been launched as an ultra-exclusive luxury magazine. It’s a weekly-updated look at all things mega-luxurious, and is aimed at the time-poor, but increasingly mega-rich, high-net worth’s that roam the world in search of their next Superyacht, Private Jet, or perhaps Bugatti Supercar.
Derek Gregory, Billionaire500.com founder and Publisher, has been involved in International Publishing for several years, both in magazines, and online, but gave up working for a Washington based publishing company to strike out on his own and launch Billionaire 500.
His aim is to appeal to individuals who enjoy looking at the things he writes about within the weekly updated sections, but have very little time in which to do so. This is why, as he says, the magazine has just one concentrated article per section each week.
The magazine’s regular section titles are, Business, Property, Hotels, Cars, Boats, Aircraft, Lifestyle, and Horology. Each of the articles then supported by just four carefully selected, and aligned advertisers.
One of the key strengths and differences of Billionaire 500, Gregory feels, are his video Interviews. Each week the magazine has a short video interview. One week, he told me, it might be an interview with the CEO of a major Investment Bank, and another week maybe one with the operator of a Private Jet Company, and so on.
Gregory says, “Our readers want to read about the new £850,000 Bugatti, but they also want to read about Superyachts, Private jets, and expensive watches, because that’s the world they live in. My belief is that people want that information regularly, but not too much content all at the same time. In other words most people don’t have time to read a huge 100 page magazine, but probably have time to read a few concentrated articles each week about the subjects they enjoy”.
Gregory concluded by saying, “Our aim is simple. To produce a worthwhile weekly magazine aimed at the Billionaires of this world. If along the way we pick up a few thousand millionaire readers, and a few thousand aspiring millionaires and billionaires who also enjoy reading about the most exclusive products and services available – then that’s great too. We produce the magazine for anyone interested in looking at, and purchasing, ultra-luxurious products and services”.
After just six issues Billionaire500.com has covered articles on luxury real estate companies around the world, including, laclassicestates.com, bhsusa.com, lerevedubai.com, and glentree.co.uk, as well as real estate, billionaire500.com has featured car articles about Bugatti, Maserati, Bentley, Koenigsegg and lamborghini. Yacht articles have included Edmiston, Nigel Burgess, Fraser Yachts and Rainsford Saunders.
