A good suggestion would be to make one into a PDF that can be downloaded from your site. Then people can sample your magazine. Many, myself included, will not risk an expensive subscription cost before see if the magazine is worth it!

You could also look at lowering you subscription costs by offering a digital version!

As much as is love to sign up. At almost 10 bucks an issue. There's no savings on A subscription.

Interested, but I too think the subscription price outweighs the quantity of content you get. Even the $37 US price for US subscriptions is bordering on a bit steep for only 6 issues. Buying a single mag at a newsstand for $6, I'm ok with. Buying a subscription at the same price, not so much.

First off nice job on the magazine. Good way to get this sport known.

Digital version is a great idea, I think. I'm not sure how to cut costs for a magazine and still keep the same margins though(maybe cheaper paper?).

Digital media is the way of the future, and social media even on top of that so catering to that market would be smart. People today definitely spend more time in front of screens than they do in local Magazine stores; I know because I'm an avid reader and I've seen all my favorite places close over the years, and having to diversify their products because selling magazines alone won't do.

A relevant anecdote. I remember working at a sporting good shop a long time ago and my boss was talking about the Bowflex and what a piece of shit it was, but we sold tons because people wanted it. Why? Bowflex didn't sell a lot because they were good, in fact most buyers of the demographic they were catering to tended to only use the machines seldomly once they had it(they turned into coat hangers as we'd say), and anyone with a good sense of athletic knowledge were usually buying higher end machines or free weights which are ultimately better. But Bowflex bought tons of advertising time on TV and shoved that product down all our throats to the point where I can just say the name and everyone knows what I mean. Kinda like the Slap Chop. It sucks. I've cut myself bad twice and eventually broke it on...wait for it...an onion. But even I thought it was the magic piece my kitchen was missing; the solution to all my time problems.

My point here is that we're a lazy society, always staring at screens in one form or another, and most us of don't have tons of expendable cash (especially with today's economy) so we're always looking for a good deal. Bowflex won by being affordable and easily available to people via phone call from your couch.. slumped over in a guilt-ridden position staring at your gut thinking, "I gotta get into shape"

We totally hear you and we are looking for anyone wanting to submit content (Event Reviews, Team Profiles, Gear Reviews) from the East. Compensation will be provided in the form for free product or store credit.

PM us if you’re interested. This is a great opportunity to show other Canadians as well as our friends to the south what Airsoft is like here in Canada.

I stopped buying any kind of magazines years ago, I find that the internet is more current.

So a digital format is also preferred.

Haven't been on this forum for a while. Noticed the thread for Take Aim magazine. I wonder if this is published by the very same guys who used to sell it for a short time here in the UK? And then disappeared taking with them a lot of subscriber's money!
