PROFITABLE PRODUCT THAT SHOPPERS LOVE
While magazines may be seeing market maturity, there are many titles that are seeing great success. New magazines continue to be published. Sales in the billions prove that quality publications are exciting to readers.
With magazines, retailers gain impulse sales that build larger profitable baskets. Content is king and when a magazine appeals to a shopper, she will seek it out. Her passion comes in a curated package that she trusts. Failure to find it in your store will have her looking elsewhere.
Magazines can answer a retailer’s movement toward hyper-customization within their stores. The variety that magazines offer can help retail focus on differentiating and building shopper loyalty. Check out the Magazines At Retail site for more information about how magazines are working at retail.
