The retail price of Mojo magazine has slowly risen over the years, but currently stands at 4.99 per issue. However Mojo offer reduced prices if you become a subscriber through greatmagazine.co.uk and commit to buying the next 12 months of Mojo. Subscription prices are 27, 37 or 42; depending on whether you want a digital copy available on a smart device, a printed physical copy, or both for your convenience. This subscription offer makes Mojo more desirable, as not only do readers feel they are getting an exclusive deal but also they will get the issues earlier than retailers. I know this as from past experience, I have had magazine sent to my door months before their public release date, some magazine even offer special subscriber covers which have only the
photograph on it and no sell lines. This makes the consumer feel special. Furthermore, 12 months of Mojo for 37 is much enticing than buying a 4.99 copy from your local newsagent each month, totalling 59.88 a year, and its delivered straight to your door!Subscription services are a key selling point for Mojo as even though the price of an individual issue of Mojo is reduced to 3.08, the magazine has guaranteed readers and buyers for a year.Additionally, in having subscribers, readers are more likely to recommend an issue to a friend, increasing Mojos number of readers and profit.
