What our clients say about us:
Neil was our much respected, friendly and knowledgeable account manager when he worked at Comag and now many years later I am truly delighted that we are once again in Neil’s safe hands. They say timing is everything. In the summer of 2020 Neil contacted me to let me know he had just set up MagCirc; if you are brave enough to set up your own company in 2020, then it reinforced in my mind that Neil had what it takes to help us with a new project. At that moment we were planning the launch of an exciting new title and looking for reliable distribution and circulation advice to match our own ambitious goals, so the timing was perfect. With our previous distributor’s contract about to expire, we were able to move our business immediately to Neil and he handled everything for us with his trademark efficiency, knowledge and connections. During the short 4 months we have been with MagCirc, Neil has not only worked with us to strategically list our titles in several major new outlets but in a staggering 270 more stores. In his calm and very successful approach he has also made sure our bottom line is seen as a top priority. Neil - we won’t hesitate to highly recommend you!
Our go-to person for distributing our titles strategically and successfully, Neil has assisted us to expand our brand reach and achieve great returns. Friendly, reliable and flexible when required, he is able to take on board our requests and deliver our newsstand campaigns time and time again.
I first came across Neil way back when he took over our account while working for COMAG. I made it clear then which is still a belief I have now, is that I have no way of policing how my magazine's reach the end consumer so I allow Neil to manage all my circulation requirements. So it comes down for me to a simple issue: who can I work with and trust? Neil fits that bill to the point that my business moved with him when COMAG ceased business and his friendly, efficient manner and extremely helpful circulation advice, means I can concentrate on publishing! Once again, Neil ticks all the boxes.
Without hesitation, I asked for Neil’s help and quickly felt that he had become a strong, driving force within the team that produces Bushcraft & Survival Skills Magazine by explaining in simple terms the best and most profitable way of increasing brand recognition across several different platforms. His diligence, attention to detail, together with his highly-tuned interpersonal skills and professional attitude has helped us grow sales within a somewhat challenging market sector. Neil’s knowledge of, and connections within the publications industry is widely recognised and without hesitation we shall be looking to work alongside him, drawing upon his experience and array of knowledge in this exciting new venture.
Neil has been my account manager for nearly 10 years and his dedication to the job is unquestionable. No job is too small and his ability to sort out even the most complex problem is phenomenal. In a time when news-stand sales are in decline, Neil’s advice, attention to detail and always going above and beyond for us, ensured that my titles didn’t.
Neil Selby has looked after our titles Philosophy Now and The Ultimate Guide for over a decade now. In a fast changing magazine industry he has been a calm and reassuring constant for us - and a trusted source of advice on all aspects of sales and distribution. Neil is always knowledgeable, always looking out for the interests of our titles, always on top of the details, and a tenacious negotiator on our behalf with retail chains. It is a reflection of our high regard for him that after COMAG, we moved our titles to Neil's new employer so that he could continue to manage our titles circulation.
As a magazine publisher you need to work with a Circulation Manager who is dedicated, experienced and enthusiastic. Neil has all of these qualities in spades and he adds to that an approachable nature which makes dealing with him a friendly and stress free experience. MagCirc will leave you in no doubt that your business is in safe and professional hands, whilst offering a professional approach that takes away the pain of dealing with magazine circulation issues - so you can concentrate on the 99 other problems of running your publishing business!
BACKPASS has been in the very capable hands of Neil Selby for over ten years now - initially through Comag and Intermedia and now via MagCirc. He knows the business inside out and takes a personal interest in promoting the magazine at every opportunity (it helps that he used to be a professional footballer!). He is vastly experienced, always diligent and personable and looks ahead positively ... he is proactive rather than reactive. We are delighted to have Neil as the BACKPASS circulation manager, especially in these very difficult days of lockdowns and restricted outlets, and we highly recommend him to any publisher looking for an enthusiastic and energetic circulation expert.
