check_mark_125x125Back on May 14th, 2015, I blogged about the Spring 2015 issue of Rotman magazine as the Cover of the Week.  So how did it end up doing on the newsstand?

The Spring 2015 issue was a huge success!

In Canada, sales improved by 80% from the same issue last year, despite a 10% cut to the draw.  It set a news sales record for this time slot.

And in the U.S.A. sales improved by 64%.

At a $16.95 cover price, that adds up.
