Reach new markets and new customers by putting your magazines on iSUBSCRiBE. It costs absolutely nothing to be listed and marketed by us, and because we work on a cost per sale basis you pay only when we get orders for your titles.
Whether you're a major publishing company or a specialist publisher of niche magazines, we can help you sell more subscriptions.
iSUBSCRiBE is the UK's leading online magazine and newspaper subscription provider, and has been supplying subscription services to UK publishers since 2003. Our 12-strong team is based on the King's Road in London, but as we also have market-leading operations in Australia and New Zealand, we can give you international reach for your magazines should you need it.
With over 2,200 consumer, business, specialist and international magazine titles as well as newspapers, free holiday brochures and travel guides, we cover every genre from lifestyle to fashion, news to entertainment and science to sport. iSUBSCRiBE.co.uk had 1.25 million unique visitors last year with over 120,000 orders, so we deliver sales volume as well as quality customers for our publisher clients.
We have grown by an average of 20% in each of the last five years and can give you access to over 330,000 customers and over 160,000 registered e-newsletter subscribers. Our typical customer is internet savvy, affluent and influential and generally in the age bracket of 30 to 55 years. And as nearly 50% of our customers subscribe to magazines and newspapers as gifts for other people, by being on iSUBSCRiBE you tap into the lucrative and growing gifting market. iSUBSCRiBE is working to grow this market offline as well by selling pre-paid gift cards in retail outlets such as Sainsbury's, Asda and other stores.
We market your titles through search engine marketing, affiliate programmes, database activity and e-newsletters as well as direct mail, print advertising, special promotions, partner packages, in-store gift cards and a major Christmas gifting promotion.
List your titles with iSUBSCRiBE and you also appear on the sites we run on behalf of our partners, including WH Smith, Next and TMN. Your titles also benefit from our large library, school and corporate subscription activity.
