MoneySense Feb/Mar 2014

check_mark_125x125On February 12th, 2014 I posted the Feb/Mar 2014 issue of MoneySense as Cover of the Week.  I was pointing out the trend to using much larger type for the main cover features.

The issue sold over 11,100 copies.  The issue beat the overall average sale for 2014, and only 3 other issues sold better.  All the covers featured very aggressive type treatments.

The message here is don’t be shy.
