Would you pay more for a magazine if it didn’t have ads it it?


Just reading an article today, RPG Magazines – Essential orOutdated? and it got me thinking, would I pay more for a magazine that offered no ads, but more content versus and standard magazine with basic content and ads?  I am a subscriber to many magazines including Inc and I have noticed that the ad content has been slowly creeping up in number.  So I have to wonder to offset the cost of color printing, which can be high, would I pay more for better content.  Now in my head, I say YES, but would I really pay for it?  People complain when they have to pay 1 cent more for things, so I could guess this might have some weird backlash. Are you willing to pay more for good content? Better yet, are you willing to pay less for OK content?  What do you think?  Talk to you later…
