Print Advertising

The tried, trusted and true method

Newspaper advertising has easily connected businesses to buyers in an engaging way for more than 200 years. And there’s a reason it’s prevailed: it works. While digital advertising continues to grow, issues like brand safety, viewability and transparency expose gaps for ROI. Layering traditional media, and in particular premium print brands – enhances brand trust, ultimately giving you value.

Why Newspaper Advertising?

  • Enhance brand trust. 70% of survey respondents say they completely or mostly trust newspapers1, and 50% agreed the more trusted an ad, the more likely they are to buy the product/service2.
  • Invite focused engagement among readers who are already engaged in on-page, editorial content
  • Boost the effectiveness of ad campaigns across other media like  TV, social, display with newspaper ads
  • Reach your target audience based on who they are (millennial, educated, high-income earner, etc.), where they are located, and contextual targeting. Aligning your brand with a contextually relevant newspaper allows your ad to be seen by people who have a higher likelihood of wanting your product or service
  • Break through the clutter and noise of the digital world
