For those that took advantage of the free magazine subscrition offer posted awhile back I had just recently received this email from Driving Sports Magazine but it looks like an online magazine only now instead of a print magazine,is that correct?


Early this spring you signed up for a free trial subscription to the all-new Driving Sports Magazine. Fact is, the online response was so tremendous, so huge, and so enthusiastic we decided to build something even greater than a simple print magazine.

Now, imagine if you will: a magazine with something new every week that not only tells you about events, cars and performance tuning, but also shows you with streaming video! That is something that simply cannot be accomplished with paper and ink. That is the all-new DrivingSports.com! It's the natural combination of video action and print magazine depth!

http://www.drivingsports.com

Even better, as a participant in our spring survey, you have full access to the site right now. No waiting on the post man. No torn covers. No change of address necessary! In fact, as promised, we've given you full access to the new DrivingSports.com through the end of the year (--that's a $14 subcription value!) If you like what we bring you over the next six months, we only ask that you sign up for a paid subscription before the end of your free trial. If not, your account will automatically downgrade to limited access on January 1, 2006.

The fresh material has already begun, login right now!
Did anyone else receive a similar email?

Thanks.

That sounds more to me like they got so many people to sign up, it was going to cost too much to print that many free magazines, so they're going to make it into a website instead. *yawn*

IIRC, Driving Sports was a website way before it was a magazine

Re: Free trial subscription to the all-new Driving Sports Magazi

Ideally, they give away subscriptions to thousands of people so that sponsors of the magazine will spend more on their ads. Basically they can claim they are mailing to 5,000,000 people and get more money for the ad space. were as if they are only mailing to 5,000. The advertiser isn't reaching as many people and therefore either won't buy the space or won't pay as much for it. Sounds like this is a case of they couldn't get enough advertisers behind them to support the cost of the free issues.
