Magazine Franchises

Magazines are still a popular means of entertainment. Even though in the current digital landscape, one may think who would want to buy magazines? But research shows that people still want to walk to a newsstand and pick up something to read on the tube or to skim through in the park. Women still want to pick up hardcopies of their favourite gossip magazines, with their quizzes and tips. This industry is still going strong regardless of the world wide web era. The avid readers of magazines and paperbacks still prefer to read on paper instead of gadgets. So, magazines franchise opportunities and novels business are going good in the UK.

Magazines franchise opportunities within this industry are plentiful. If an investor has an affinity with writing and editing, or even if they just want to manage and put together others writings, he or she can always go for a well-known brand’s franchise. Franchises are easier to handle as they don’t require any previous experience or too much advertising to set up a clientele.

The market is saturated with big names, so it is better to run one the established franchises.
