Sales up 300%

Posted by admin On May - 14 - 2014

What a difference a year can make.  Volume 25 #2 of SuperTrax, which went on sale November 18th, 2013, sold 3,173 more copies than the same issue last year, for a stunning 300% lift in sales.

The issue was promoted at Wal Mart, where sales spiked by 711%.

It just goes to show the power of a fabulous retail promotion combined with a winning cover and what can be achieved.
