Wanted to subscribe to the digital version of Runners World via Zinio.
My store had been set to the US one after a previous purchase and so was offered the US version for $25(£14.96) for 12 issues . Thought I'd prefer the UK version so changed to the UK store. I'd like to say I was surprised but that would be a lie when I saw the UK version was £29.16 for 12 issues. Yes we could have the Rip-Off Britain discussion but that's been done to death so all I'll say is that l'm keeping £29.16 in my account and Runners World will be keeping their digital subscription where ever they keep their digital subscriptions.
So why the post? Just been reading an article that says UK magazine sales have fallen 1/3rd since 2000 and digital sales haven't come anywhere close to taking up the slack with many titles struggling to get over 1000 digital subscribers.
So publishers why not give your potential customers a fair deal? Its not about matching the US price its about being fair.
If you choose to eat bread try and buy REAL bread ie flour, water, salt, yeast made with a long slow ferment rather than the 50p economy stuff even the branded bread is full of rubbish like anti-fungals, flour 'improvers' sugar, oil so it can be pumped out industrially at super duper fast rates.
Its my guess as to why so many peoples are gluten intolerant these days.
