The more ads you sell the lower the subscription fees. Marketing 101...



As I was once told by an unnamed source "the magazine makes very little in the way of revenue from subscriptions- it's all ad money that drives the magazine."



In short, if they get sales geeks to actually sell it"s possible the subcription will go down in price.

Remember, I said possible- yeah, right.

My local bank got bought up and became a POS. I should have know when they started selling loans like crazy. Yeah, yeah I know capitalism and all that good stuff..... Hope this is all for the best. This is a pretty good site aside from when the children squabble....

More snowmobile reviews, eh ?
 
PLEASE don't mess with the "Bikes" archive of old reviews. I consult it all the time. Do please update some of those old links on the home page. Maybe this will make MO even more international in flavor ?

Can we expect some Rupert Murdoch style stories like "Alien Baby Lives In My Tank Bag" ?

Is this place going to be like the gym on January 1st with 300 new member that hang around for two weeks and quit?



I really hope the format does not change from a community to a metropolis.

--Channeling The Squid today? :)



But that is why I said either/or.



And yes, Magazines usually make very little to nothing off of the sticker price. The just want large circulation numbers to charge larger ad fees...which is why you occasionally hear about newspapers stretching their numbers.



...and I prefer the term Saleshole over sales geek...
