PC Advisors Circulation.

Just heard on the business news on Radio 2 that a mens magazine has stopped publication.
How has the current market & recession effected PC Advisors Circulation & if so is it up or down?

Could be because a surprisingly large number of men (and younger ones even more so) these days seem to want to burst into emotional tears at the drop of a hat...:-)

because I don't know what the current circulation figure is - my PCA life revolves around this forum. What I can tell you - and it must be pretty obvious - is that an economic recession is hardly the ideal situation in which to be a monthly magazine.

Go into a newsagent and take a look along the shelves - all of those magazines have to work very hard to sell themselves, and competition is fierce.

Forgive me, why is that anything to do with you?

If you find the magazine gives you articles that you find helpful at a price you find o.k then what more do you need to know?

user8 can ask what he wants if he is interested !

It might not have anything to with user8 but it has a lot to do with me and several thousand other subscribers.

If it went to the wall, and I think we are all confident it will not, we would be out of pocket and very much at the back end of the queue of creditors!

Having said that, I would be very surprised if its circulation, along with many other quality, specialist glossies, had not gone down.

Maybe because a subscription has been paid?

I've just paid upfront for the next 12 issues.

No need to worry - we're just fine. We're part of the world's largest IT publishing group, and we're not planning on going to the wall.

Take a look at this, and listen to Bob Carrigan - he'll tell you all about IDG.

Like I said, I think most of us are confident that all is well, but the worriers will appreciate your confirmation!
