TESTIMONIALS

"Bringing CSI on board was like hiring an entire circulation department but with the added bonus of having the contacts and clout of a large publisher. Without question BBC Music Magazine has benefited from CSI's stature, expertise, and good common sense and my only wish would be to have found and hired them sooner."

Christopher Payton
Associate Publisher, BBC Music Magazine


"As a Consultant, my name and reputation is on the line with every recommendation I make to my client Publishers. With CSI, I don't have to worry - they always make me look good. No matter what size publisher, CSI can help. Whether I tap into a small segment of their expertise or turn over all of the circulation responsibilities, they have they breadth and depth of staff to handle it. And, if for some reason they don't think they can, they will tell me rather than disappoint. Without a doubt, if you are looking for circulation help in any area, from developing and profitizing circulation, including all of the details like modeling and strategic planning, direct mail, fulfillment, newsstand, etc. CSI is the place to be."

"In a matter of three months, CSI was able to help us more than double our newsstand distribution. For a regional title that has been in business for less than a year, this has been a huge boost for our brand and, in turn, our appeal to potential advertisers."

Julie Wilson
Publisher/EIC, STORY magazine


"I'm convinced that more and more magazines will be outsourcing certain functions as time goes by. Smaller companies may be much better off with the expertise and professionalism of a company like CSI than maintaining their own circulation department. We have worked with Greg Wolfe and his team for more than two years and I feel that we get their fullest attention and are as much a part of our team as anyone else on staff. They dedicate themselves to the success of La Cucina Italiana on a full time basis. Our circulation has grown a great deal over the past two years and they deserve much of the credit for it."

George Hirsch
Publisher, La Cucina Italiana

"CSI has been instrumental in guiding our circulation efforts for twenty plus years. The person-power, knowledge and expertise we have gained is immeasurable. CSI staff members are results-oriented, attuned to the bottom line, creative, and they care about their work and their clients."

"strategy+business has had the privilege of working with CSI for 18 years and I can say wholeheartedly that their level of commitment to our success is at least as strong as any in-house circulation department’s commitment would be. I dare say, it may even be stronger. Our CSI colleagues are true teammates who go over and above to deliver top-quality, personalized attention to strategy+business. With CSI, we get the benefit of a team of experts working on our account—a staff that no small publisher could afford to assemble in-house. In this day and age when so many corporate functions are out-sourced, it becomes ever more important to choose a partner who truly shares your passion for your business. CSI is that kind of partner. They are knowledgeable, accessible, hard-working, and are truly dedicated to the success of strategy+business."

Gretchen Hall

"Greg Wolfe and his team at CSI professionalized our circulation efforts with best practices hard-won from many decades of circulation experience. He simplified our business, improved results and saved money. What more can you ask for? Lots more creative ideas! And he delivers. Critically for us he also understands the nuances of the regional magazine industry, which makes Greg and his team all the more effective."

Jonathan Moffly
President, Moffly Media Publications


"Greg Wolfe's experienced team at CSI is the small publisher's circulation department. Let CSI handle the daily details of circulation and fulfillment so you can focus on strategy, editorial and marketing. Complex projects coming up? Fulfillment conversions? Subscription list transfers? CSI will see you through safely."
