Publisher FAQs

What are the benefits of selling via magazine.co.uk?
magazine.co.uk is the fastest growing magazine subscription website in the UK, selling hundreds of consumer and professional magazines and newspapers.

We attract millions of visitors looking for magazine subscriptions and reach audiences you are unlikely to reach cost-effectively through your own marketing activities. We run large-scale digital marketing campaigns bidding on expensive generic search terms such as 'magazine subscriptions', 'gift subscriptions', 'magazine offers' and 'magazine deals', plus extensive email and social campaigns, as well as other ‘free gift with subscription’ promotions – all of which are funded by magazine.co.uk.

We generate particularly high subscription volumes at gifting times of year such as Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas. Approximately 56% of all orders are gift subscriptions across the calendar year, but this rises to 72% in December in the run up to Christmas.

What do you charge?
There are no set up or listing fees. We agree a Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) with you and then invoice you monthly for the number of new subscription sales generated x the agreed CPA. So it’s risk-free - you only pay us when we generate a sale for you.

What marketing will you do for my publication?
As well as generating sales for your publication from all the generic magazine subscription traffic, when taking on a new title we can also set up and run a pay-per-click search campaign for your specific magazine brand if required. All media costs, plus our time to manage your search campaign, are included in the CPA. This commercial model allows us the flexibility to apply the required resource, test different keywords and digital marketing channels - all at no risk to you. And it incentivises us to do everything we can to generate you as many subscriptions as possible.

What subscription offers can I promote?
You can promote various subscription offers including trials e.g. 3 issues for £1, as well as annual subscriptions and gift subscriptions. magazine.co.uk predominantly sells UK print subscriptions, but can also sell digital subscriptions, print-digital bundles, and subscriptions for international delivery..

Do you look after new subscription acquisition only?
Yes, we only handle the new, initial subscription order. Once acquired, we send the order to your fulfilment operation (whether in-house or a subscription bureau) to set up, process and then fulfil the order. We leave any subsequent renewal to be handled by you.

What do I need to do to get my publication listed?
Please email us at publishers@magazine.co.uk with more details about your publication.
We’ll then ask you to complete our new publisher form and we’ll use the information from this to draw up an agreement for you to sign. Once signed, we aim to get your title listed within 5 working days.
