The new look Socialist - thumbs up from readers
Last week's Socialist
The launch of the redesigned Socialist has proved a hit among readers and sellers. Socialist party members in Walthamstow, east London, sold 46 copies on a public sale last Saturday using the back page feature on cuts in the National Health Service.
Here is a selection of readers' comments:
It looks lively and 'together'.
Excellent. Pass on my thanks to the team with a special mention to Suze (who designed the layout). Love the page numbers!
No doubt plans are well under way for the election week issue....a plea from me for the simplest front page headline poss. Skip the word 'austerity'! I'd welcome NO MORE CUTS! VOTE TUSC!
I was delighted to receive the newly redesigned Socialist. I'm particularly impressed by the sharp layout on the features, the letters section and the little details around the page numbers.
Inspired by this excellent new look and with a big NHS demo approaching I doubled my sales target to 20. The paper and TUSC leaflets got an excellent reception on the demo, and I sold 15 papers. The previous day I sold five at an RMT union protest.
But getting to 20 hasn't stopped me. At an election public meeting another two sold and from visiting potential new party members, I've reached 27 sales so far and still going.
It's important to turn these sales into regular buyers of the paper and hopefully new members. All the contacts visited get a subscription form and an invite to the next branch meeting.
