    Hi,

    I'm meeting with a newspaper/magazine distributor tomorrow to discuss the possible distribution of a monthly newspaper I've been working on.

    Anyone with experience of this sort of thing got any questions they recommend asking?

    Thanks,

    Adam.

    Price changes if you increase circulation.
    Are you being delivered as a standalone product or lumped in with a load of free junk mail

    Well, that went better than expected!

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Probably would have been worth mentioning that it's retail distribution rather than door to door.

    I'm getting excited! Time for a nice cup of tea methinks =)

    how many a day can they do
    what locations (flats, houses, parts of the town)
    and how experienced are the delivery guys/girls

    ... a suggestion, talk with your local pizza shop and ask them to deliver your paper along with their flyers (for additional cost, of course) ;) .. you will be impressed by the price and the result :)
