Data powers everything that we do
The commitment of subscription has real value to a magazine publisher and at Stones Ashford we are dedicated to providing a helping hand in the management of subscriptions data.
We recognise that there is a real opportunity to turn a subscription from a cold, business transaction into a real relationship, from a “contract” into a “service”. With relationships come loyalty; and with loyalty, longevity.
We offer an in-house subscriptions management service; handling invoicing, payment, renewals and subscriptions claims. We deal with despatching world-wide; and provide the option of holding and releasing titles from stock, as required.
Maximising subscriptions revenue
Subscriptions lay at the heart of revenue generation for many publishers. At Stones Ashford, we are committed to providing innovative marketing solutions that help our publishers to effectively target existing and new subscribers, and grow subscription sales.
Using our variable data printing service; publishers can utilise subscriptions data to target the existing or potential subscriber with a personalised message. Whether through a direct mail piece, or carrier sheets carrying personalised renewal offers; we help you maximise the opportunity for subscriptions sales.
Print-on-demand back issues
No longer does a publisher need to overprint, and subsequently store, issues of their magazine to fulfil potential back-issue demand.
Our innovative ‘print-on-demand’ digital printing service, teamed with an online stock management system, simplifies the management of back issues, eliminates wastage, whilst saving publishers time and money.
Simply, the files for your magazine back issues are held on a searchable, online print-ordering system. Accessible by the publisher, or even the end-consumer, back-issues can be searched for, located, ordered and paid for online; then subsequently printed and delivered by us within 3 working days.
Efficient. Effective. Simple.
