Alright, In order to explain I'm going to use KD (Kuwaiti Dinar) but I'll translate the money in USD for you guys.
So I am running a Newspaper, The Weirdo
and it's fairly popular with my schoolmates and family. Right now I expect to be selling 55 copies for each issue.
If I sell all of the copies (and I add the money my mom gives me for a big ad at the front) it's 7.5 KD/24.69 USD, but If I take away printing and salaries I have 3.95 KD/13.01 USD left, and since I have to pay of some debt from loans I've taken to pay, I have 1.95 KD/6.42 USD.
Seems simple, right?
The thing is though, I am very terrible at selling to my schoolmates, so I often have 3-5 unsold copies, which is only 300-500 fils, but I'm only making 1.95KD at best, so this is still a large amount.
As well as this, I want to hire 2 more people, One to write a critic piece, and one to help with the articles, at 1/4 KD a week, but I don't know where to start.
Any advice on how to improve my sales skills, and convince a couple of people to help me, since we're at a VERY expensive school (tuition is at 3,500 KD/11,519.73 USD) which is likely to make a 250 fils seem very 'small'
Edit: This is probably going to be the last year of The Weirdo
, or I might keep it on till Year 11 (I'm in Year 8, just celebrated my 13th birthday a couple of weeks ago)
