School supplies strategy session

newsXpress members are embracing the opportunity to participate in a school supplies strategy session in a couple of weeks. This session, organised in partnership with a supplier, will provide newsXpress members an opportunity to learn about a business building opportunity, how to engage, how to manage and how to make money.

This is another way newsXpress is providing members with opportunities for driving better business outcomes outside their businesses, another way newsXpress is helping members to grow outside their for walls.

newsXpress helps its members to grow their own way.

This latest supplier brings to our group opportunities outside of what newsagents have been pitched. It helps us off broader appeal and greater opportunity to newsXpress members beyond what has been traditional.

Tis new supplier also enhances our pitch beyond other newsagency marketing groups.

New Ink Sale from newsXpress

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 7.58.51 amnewsXpress is launching a new national INK SALE with prices so good that we are not advertising – so as to not show our competitors what’s hot. This strategy has been embraced by newsXpress members national with hundreds of thousands of flyers hitting the streets promoting newsXpress stores as the destination businesses for brand name ink and toner.

This latest INK SALE is an evolution of the successful HOT ink! campaign newsXpress has run for years, driving new traffic for newsXpress members.

newsXpress difference on show at cluster meetings

The newsXpress difference has been on show at cluster meetings over recent weeks as we meet with and listen to members. These meetings are open, consultative and focused on business growth for newsXpress members.

Rather than using the meetings to push and push supplier deals, these meetings are about growing even stronger and more valuable newsXpress businesses.

Newsagents switching to our group love the meetings, they love the networking and they love that meetings are not a stream of suppliers peddling their wares.

The cluster meetings are a genuine and loved newsXpress difference.

newsXpress launches more presell opportunities

newsXpress last week launched another two pre-sell opportunities for members – enabling them to lock in revenue for what will be two highly sought after ranges when stock becomes available.

In addition to negotiating access to traffic generating product, newsXpress is able to provide members with access to marketing and sales tools that help the businesses to maximise the opportunities.

This is feet through the door and money in the bank – a newsXpress difference!

Newsagency marketing group newsXpress says no to discount wholesalers

As part of its commitment to premium brands, newsXpress has recently said no to approaches from two discount wholesalers who offer lo price point average margin product.

Our belief is that you cannot grow long-term customer relationships selling cheap products like those in discount variety stores.

Successful newsXpress members today make far more money from premium brands that attract premium margins.

Our strategy is a key factor in our margin transition campaign.
