Daily Star: announces cover price increases
Cover-price promotion is a long-standing tactic used by newspapers to lure readers, at the expense of circulation revenue.
The Richard Desmond-owned tabloid has been using the tactic of yo-yoing its cover price to pinch readers from its red-top rivals, the Daily Mirror and The Sun.
The 45p Daily Mirror’s strategy is not to price-promote, unlike The Sun, the best-selling national newspaper, which is price-promoting to 25p in London.
The Daily Star's basic cover price is 30p, but the title is still price discounting to 20p in selected parts of the country.
According to the latest ABC figures, the circulation of the Daily Star was 718,478 in February.
