New category — Commercial/Consumer Publications

A commercial/consumer publication, often featuring barcodes and a price tag, is a type of publication created for commercial purposes and targeted towards the general public or consumers — catering to the diverse interests of a broad consumer audience, and can be purchased at retail outlets.

Commercial/consumer publications often rely on advertisements and advertorials (designed to mimic editorial content) to generate revenue. These publications generate income through placement fees paid by businesses seeking exposure to the publication’s audience. Additionally, income for commercial/consumer publications is also generated through sales, typically through retail outlets, subscriptions, or online platforms.
