Last year, we decided to discontinue the APB/1, a medium-sized daily planner, since sales were weak. We’re obviously sorry to disappoint the fans of any discontinued product, and we do listen when enough people ask us to bring something back. Reader JoniB spoke up on a recent post that mentioned the ABP/1, and wondered if we’d consider reviving the format.
The answer? It depends. In the past, we have accommodated people, and reintroduced discontinued formats like the Businessnote. To no avail — people didn’t buy it, and after a year, we had to take it off the market for good. Similarly, we have tried repeatedly to satisfy people’s requests for a full seven-day, 24-hour planner, first with the President 24/7 and then the Horizon 7. Unfortunately, neither sold.
At the moment, we’re trying to steer ABP/1 users towards the very similar Journal 21. But we would certainly be interested to know if people truly prefer ABP/1, and why. So if you’re passionate about the format, please speak up! You can leave your feedback on this post or contact us via email.
