Hmm, which Moon landing product to sell

  1. One Giant Leap from News Corp from which I make 78.4 cents.
  2. A Moon landing commemorative coin from which I make $48.00.

Okay, option one is sale or return and could sell in higher volume. However, option is limited-edition, rare and based on experience already is an easy sell.

In fact, I expect to sell six of the coins and make $288.00, which equals 367 of One Giant Leap. I expect to sell only ten or fifteen of these.

I get why commemorative booklets are produced. However, the numbers don’t work for newsagents.

    Pretty well all of News Corps products and commission structures don’t work for newsagents.
    It’s part of the reason I’m working towards continually reducing their place in my business with the ultimate aim of getting rid of them completely.
