From The Socialist newspaper, 18 September 2013

Selling the Socialist: Swansea achieves subscription goal

As part of the 'year of the paper', Swansea Socialist Party was determined to meet its target for subscriptions.

Achieving the target has not involved anything extraordinary, just some attention to detail.

A significant part of the increase in subscriptions has come from new members.

Whenever somebody joins, the question of subscribing to the paper and the value of the paper is discussed as part of joining, not something to be added later.

The branch puts the Socialist on the meeting agenda each week - what articles have we got in the current issue, who's writing something for the next issues, is there an article that should be discussed in a future branch meeting?

This is part of bringing home to everyone the importance of the paper, for the part it plays in our work and its analysis of events.

In this way all members, from the newest to the most experienced, are encouraged to take a pride in the branch's contribution to the Socialist and to discussing how best to utilise it.

The branch committee monitors who is on subscription and makes sure that where possible, those not on subscriptions are asked to take one out.

The layout and quality and range of the content of the paper is continuously improving and Swansea SP is happy that by subscribing, selling and writing for the paper we play some role in contributing to that

The Socialist is at 46% of its quarterly sales target - help get towards 100% by paying in your sales by 4pm on 27 September
