NPS Media Group (formerly National Publisher Services), is the premier magazine circulation and newsstand outsourcing firm in the U.S. and has been serving the publishing industry for more than 25 years. NPS acquired leading circulation outsource firm, Circulation Specialists, in 2011.
Our core business is circulation management and audience development. We focus on customer acquisition and retention, fulfillment management, business modeling, strategic planning, print and digital direct response marketing, single-copy sales at retail and list services. We have expertise working with both consumer magazines (and newsletters) as well as business-to-business titles.
A Cost Effective Resource
NPS is a cost effective resource to assist or replace your current circulation department. We have an experienced staff of 40 full-time employees and our senior managers are experts, each with decades of experience with magazines and audience development. We currently provide circulation management services to more than 50 publishers and over 150 titles. Some of the titles we work with include, Archaeology, The New Republic, TV Guide, strategy + business, Highlights, Outdoor Sportsman Group, Philadelphia magazine, Garden & Gun, WoodenBoat, Inside Archery, Veterinary Practice News, and many others.
We also have a dedicated group that works with UK-based publishers on their North American circulation. Some of the titles we manage include Discover Britain, Scotland magazine, BBC History, and English Home.
Our large client base translates into strong vendor relationships and increased buying power, which means you will save significant dollars on your circulation budget. Better market intelligence is another key benefit to working with us. We see first-hand what is working and what isn’t, and we spot trends before they become widely known. Our marketing plans and recommendations include this “insider information,” so you reap the benefit of being on the cutting edge—essential in these challenging economic times, when there’s no such thing as “business as usual.”
We have developed a very successful set of processes to ensure that your business runs efficiently and encompasses all key marketing practices necessary for today’s demanding environment.
In addition, we have an in-house list group that can provide brokerage and management services very efficiently and effectively for our clients.
