Meredith Brings Print Subscriptions Back to Traditional Home

A year after converting Traditional Home from a primarily advertising-funded model to a more consumer-driven, newsstand-only publication—and cutting its frequency, circulation and most of its editorial staff in the process—Meredith Corp. announced Monday that it is once again selling subscriptions to the magazine. Starting with its Fall issue, out later this month, readers will have the option of purchasing $20 annual subscriptions to the now-quarterly shelter magazine, which carries a relatively high, $12.99 cover price on newsstands. The shift represents an increasingly familiar strategy for Meredith, similar to the one it's been executing at Coastal Living since last November: reducing dependence on advertising revenue by producing fewer issues and copies of each issue, but marketing them as premium quality "bookazines" at a $10–$15 price point, distributed through a combination of newsstand sales and direct-sold subscriptions. It's a stark contrast from the more traditional, ad-driven models applied to the company's largest titles, such as Better Homes & Gardens or Shape, which carry rate bases in the millions but can be subscribed to for less than $1 per issue. “It’s really kind of a financially driven analysis to figure out when the model flips for a specific brand from being more advertising-driven to more consumer-driven, and we’re looking at that over time,” Meredith president and CEO Tom Harty explained on an earnings call late last year. Since shifting... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
