The launch tomorrow of It’s Your Day by Bauer Media is important for newsagents as this new title targets a demographic that is key to our channel – women 35+. This is the demo that spends the most on cards, visits most often and connects best with the newsagency channel.

The launch of It’s Your Day by Bauer provides us with an opportunity to re-up our pitch to this high-value newsagency shopper, to deepen the connection and leverage the launch activity.

The marketing around the new title launch offers us an opportunity to pitch our local businesses and to do this in a way that separates us from supermarkets and others. For them, this title will be another SKU whereas for us it feels at home with our core customer.

Engaged card companies will be especially happy about this new title. I hope they take the time too understand that target reader for It’s Your Day is the target shopper top off mind for the card companies, and their retailers.

We don’t see many magazine launches from major publishers. This launch is important, a valuable investment in print. In some respects, how it goes in our channel is up to us.
