Market Overview

Newsstand sales today is a rewarding and challenging business where a competitive publishing environment and fragmented marketplace require constant monitoring and analysis. But even with more choice on the newsstands than ever before, consumers have become more selective, but also more loyal, in their reading patterns.

With representatives continually monitoring the North American and world market conditions, RCS helps publications effectively penetrate the appropriate markets through both the Direct-to-Retail and I.D. wholesaler networks. In the past, certain specialty publications have grown from initial draws of under 5,000 through the direct-to-retail network and a few wholesalers, to over 100,000 copies per issue through the entire mass-market wholesale network.
