The latest Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) on Weekly magazines

Well, the latest Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) figures on weekly magazines is a shocker. I decided to add a few more years to the report to get a longer perspective. It did not make the picture prettier as it showed not just that its down but that the downward trend is getting bigger. Here it is.

If you look at these figures, you can see several magazines NW, OK! and YOURS which are hovering at dangerous figures. In my experience that figure is about 50,00 copies.

I counted it from 2013 to 2014 in this quarter it dropped -6.8%

From 2014 to 2015, it dropped -11.7%

In 2015 to 2016, it dropped -13.0%

So what is going to happen to them in 2016 to 2017???

These declines must in someway be reflected in my clients figures.

Having said that our point of sale software has stock control as standard unlike others and will handle through focus your stock control even in difficult trading conditions like this. So it will automatically adjust the figures which are going here based on current trends. It will also alert you when your stock is low so allowing you to see about getting new stock so you do not miss a sale all with great simplicity and ease.
