I bet magazine circulations are dropping, sadly

I like mags, but now read the TRF Trail pdf online and it is very good and can see more of it going that way

Kids don't 'read' anything on paper nowadays
We buy things we don't need



With money we don't have



To impress people we don't even like

Even the publishers are thinking that way now.
I never buy newspapers now, easier to read online.
But making a cuppa and sitting down with a favourite mag I find relaxing.
Plus you can put it down then pick it up later without having to log in and find the website then find where you left off.

hope not. I hate reading anything on a PC screen or tablet. Paper all the way. Infact, Id go as far as saying that if printed mags are ditched I wouldn't bother reading again online.
totally agree, I don't bother with the TRF mag now :(

Magazine subscriptions are on the decline- agreed

I really enjoy receiving an alternative form of information to what I am used to.(work in e-media)

Its like receiving a present or parcel in the post...something tactile- that you can hold...

..not everything digital is great.

I have an ongoing permanent subscriptions but to avail of your TOMTOM offer, I have to cancel and then open a new sub

This is hardly the way to keep subscribers in difficult times
Any news on this? :huh:

In reply to the original post, unfortunately (for existing users) this is prevalent in lots of situations, from Sky TV to insurance. It's all about getting extra subscribers/customers.
Why make a special offer to someone who's already using you product!

Nothing annoys me more than 'brand new customers only'
If a company wont give me the same deals as they offer to new customers, then I leave em...... Simple as that.

With respect, not a fair comparison, with insurance, energy etc. you can do something about it and vote with your feet and move company's,

In this case you can't go and get another adventure bike mag, you just have see new subscribers getting a better deal than existing (loyal) subscribers.

ABR is the only mag I subscribe to, the rest I choose after looking at the newsagents if there is something I fancy reading.
