Newsagents loving the new contract offered by newsXpress

Two weeks ago, newsagency marketing group newsXpress offered its members a new contract at a lower monthly cost with no reduction in services and benefits.

The new contract came from a desire to lay the framework for next generation newsagency marketing group operation. For months, comprehensive modelling has been undertaken to guide the new price model. Next came considerable legal work to come up with a plain English contract that was easy to understand. newsXpress members were briefed as this evolved, and last week it was announced to members and two days ago announced to newsagents more widely:

newsXpress is grateful to be able to release to newsagents access to our new offer: $175.00 a month or $1680.00 a year paid in advance.

I say grateful because it’s the success we are having that enables us to be able to financially support this new low cost for newsagents. It’s not a limited time offer, this is our new model. We offered it to newsXpress members first, and they are loving it.

In launching this, we are launching a new contract. It’s plain English – easy to read and understand.

We are an evidence-based marketing group, offering advice and help to newsagents who want to run more successful, enjoyable and valuable businesses.

I do think it is time for a fresh approach to newsagency marketing group operation, a fresh approach to what these groups offer and do for newsagents. With so much change confronting our channel, having a stock and engaged partner is key.

newsXpress is keen to work with newsagents who themselves are keen for change, keen to run businesses they enjoy more, that are more successful and that are worth more when they choose to sell.

Disclosure: I am Managing Director of newsXpress.
