Here at Diamond we offer a complete newstrade distribution & marketing service tailor made for publishers

Diamond Magazine Distribution Limited was formed more than 28  years ago to serve the needs of mainly independent publishers who wished to see their publications targeted into the newstrade to achieve the best results without widespread wastage.

We aim to work closely with our Publisher Clients to ensure that their views and requirements are built into our service rather than offering a service which our clients feel commits them to unnecessary work and expenditure.

We represent a strong base of publications working closely with the trade to maximise their sales potential whilst keeping wastage to a minimum.

Our role as distributor is to ensure that each title in our care is targeted to the areas where maximum sales can be achieved working closely with our clients to establish these areas.

Over recent years we have developed ever closer links with all of the larger alternative multiple retail groups (Martin McColl’s, Co-Op, Sainsbury’s, Tesco's etc.) as well as keeping frequent contact  with the major Wholesale and Retail chains including W H Smith High Streets and Travel Points. We have been successful in negotiating regular promotions for our titles through all of these outlets whilst ensuring that we never lose sight of the importance of the Independent Retail Newsagents who are so crucial to the success of the specialist titles.

We have developed website links with all of the wholesale chains which has gained us access to an increased level of information from their EPOS systems, with an ever improving level of technology being employed to bring out sales information at an early stage.

Diamond prides itself on its personal service to clients, together with the presentation of wholesaler by issue information which our publisher clients find invaluable.

Each month we provide an updated sales analysis plus a detailed explanation of the payment together with, most importantly, your revenue cheque or bank transfer.

This regular monthly payment ensures that publishers are able to plan ahead and, when desired, schedule in promotions to coincide with special issues, events etc.

Finally, we currently export many of our titles to a range of 26 countries and would be pleased to discuss this service in greater depth should you be interested in exporting your title.
