Two distinct circulation teams work closely with IPC Media publishers and third party clients to ensure we understand, and deliver to, their magazine sales ambitions. Using unparalleled information and insight, the teams develop highly successful circulation strategies tailored to each individual publisher's needs.

Marketforce employs around 180 people and attracts talent from all areas of the magazine and retail industries. By consistently outperforming the market - from copy sales to customer service - Marketforce has earned a reputation for having one of the very best teams in the business.
