More big name magazines will close or reduce their frequency in the next year, industry experts have predicted. Following Condé Nast’s announcement that Glamour’s frequency will be cut from monthly to biannually at the end of the year, media analyst firm Enders Analysis’s chief executive Douglas McCabe told RN that a frequency reduction is an option on the table for a number of publishers.
Condé Nast’s decision to cut Glamour magazine’s frequency from monthly to biannual has not come as a shock to retailers, they told RN, after a change in cover price failed to reduce a significant sales decline for the title. The move follows the publisher halving the price of the title to £1 at the start of this year. Glamour content will now be published online first, with the biannual edition billed as the “ultimate beauty bible and style guide”.
The Nisa board’s unanimous backing of a £137.5m acquisition by Co-op could spell the end of months of uncertainty, retailers told RN, but the final decision now lies in the hands of its shareholders. The board announced its decision to support the deal on Tuesday, revealing plans to host a series of roadshows across the country to enable retailers to ask questions, while also addressing any concerns.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
