Promoting People’s Friend magazine

peoples_friend_april.JPGWe sell upwards of 50 copies of People’s Friend magazine each week at our Forest Hill store.  This week, we have the latest issue co-located next to the Herald Sun (in the old Alpha magazine stand) in pursuit of even stronger sales.  The free novel which comes with People’s Friend should also help drive sales.

In its usual location, we use People’s Friend as a beacon to support other titles.  This is part of our honey pot strategy, using popular products to supportproducts which are likely to appeal to the same customer.

    Allison, talk to your local newsagent and they can have a copy put aside every week.
