Boosting South West Wales paper sales
Swansea Socialist Party had one of its most successful paper sales in the week that the Socialist's editor Sarah Sachs-Eldridge visited South West Wales to discuss 'the year of the paper'.
We sold 77 copies of issue 765, mainly from three stalls held in the centre of Swansea.
This bumper sale was due to a combination of campaigning on an issue that resonates with the public and organising to do extra paper sales.
The campaign against the bedroom tax is winning overwhelming support on the streets of Swansea, not only from people affected by the tax or who have friends and relatives who are affected, but from many others who recognise the cruelty and unfairness of the tax.
We had a very successful joint meeting with the Llanelli and West Wales branch, which sold 71 copies that week.
There was a very useful discussion on the role of the Socialist and how we can make better use of it - and sell more. We'll be making use of those ideas to boost our sales.
