Newspapers Get Results for Advertisers
  • Readers shop newspapers (thin market)
    • Only 4% of consumers are “in the market” on any day.
    • Miss that day, and you’ve missed a sale.
    • New advertising research indicates that two principles are critical to advertising success:
      • Consistency
      • Recency
  • Have exposure on a consistent basis--every day to create awareness and interest.
    • As constant reminders
    • As reinforcement of brand preference
  • Research indicates that the most effective ad is the last ad seen before a purchase (recency).
  • Consistency and recency go hand in hand.
  • Be in the paper every day to assure yours is the last ad seen before a purchase.
  • Better to be in more often with smaller ads than to be in less frequently with bigger ads.
