Needs Screw the Man Who Cares Campaigns Provide Revenue Jolt

first_imgIn addition to the subscription campaigns, Need attributes the revenue spike to a pair of sponsored meet-and-greet events with magazine staff and two topical speaking events featuring Need contributors and members of local organizations. Need also is planning Street Music for Street Kids concert later this month and a “Your Powers for Good” events series.“The idea behind the events was to not only promote Need but to accomplish it through furthering our end mission of assisting humanitarian organizations and those in need,”  founder and executive director Kelly Kinnunen said.Need launched the ScrewTheMan, SaveTheWorld intiative—which was inspired by Paste’s Save Paste campaign—in an effort to generate 25,000 new subscribers, which would more than double Need’s current circulation of 19,000. If successful, Need said it would eliminate all commercial advertisingfor one year and replace the allocated advertising pages with storiesof how readers are involved in saving the world.The Who Cares? campaign is intended to drive bulk subscription orders. “The average single order sale is up by $12 from last quarter, so each person is ordering more,” Stephanie Kinnunen said. Despite the revenue boost, though, she said the magazine has secured only “a fraction” of the new subscriptions needed to meet its ambitious goal. Minneapolis, Minnesota-based “humanitarian” magazine Need has seen some positive results from its ScrewTheMan, SaveTheWorld and Who Cares? subscription campaigns. So far—through the June, July and August period—the magazine has seen subscription revenue jump nearly 900 percent from the same period last year.“This has been amazing considering it is summer which is normally bad and we have not had a magazine out since early February,” editor-in-chief Stephanie Kinnunen told FOLIO:. Usually carrying a quarterly frequency, Need hopes to print its next edition by mid- to late-November.last_img read more

first_imgLakshmi’s NTRTwitterRam Gopal Varma aka RGV’s Lakshmi’s NTR started on a good note and made a decent collection at the box office in the premiere shows. It has beaten Suryakantam, Lucifer and Super Deluxe.Ram Gopal Varma’s track records show that he has a very little fan base in the US, but the controversial subject of late legendary actor NT Rama Rao, who had good followership there, had created a lot of hype and curiosity about Lakshmi’s NTR. But the trade pundits were a bit sceptic about its prospects at the box office, as it clashed with new Indian releases Super Deluxe, Suryakantam, Lucifer and Airaa.Weekend Cinema US, which bagged its overseas theatrical rights, announced to premiere the uncensored version of Lakshmi’s NTR in 125 screens in the US on March 28. It tweeted, “#LakshmIsNTR is going to be our biggest release in USA . Theatre list will be out very soon. Grand Usa premieres on 28th March. Uncut & uncensored Version for USA & Canada . No Beeps, No cuts only Action.”This announcement coupled with the hype boosted its advance booking. But then came in a piece of shocking news that High court has stalled its release. However, Weekend Cinema US tweeted, “#LakshmisNTR will be released exactly as per schedule in USA . & all the other countries. Content is already delivered to all the locations! Also enabled in Moviepass in many locations!! Book your tickets now.”Lakshmi’s NTR has received a brilliant opening and collected $84,578 at the US box office in the premiere shows. This number is likely to cross $100,000 when the final figures are revealed. The controversial biopic of NT Rama Rao has become the biggest opener for Ram Gopal Varma in the country.
