WHY CHOOSE TO ADVERTISE IN A PRINT MAGAZINE?
Print builds brand identification and powers sales.
Print is durable, portable, credible, universal, beautiful and works well with other media.
Shoppers Prefer Print
Shoppers across all ages say that print—not digital—sources most influence their store and shopping decisions: 69% of shoppers rely weekly on newspapers. These numbers are even higher among younger, and more digitally savvy, shoppers who also prefer newspapers (91%) as the most significant information channel.
Print delivers highest Return on Investment
In a 2013 study conducted by The Nielson Company, households exposed to print magazine advertising campaigns spent significantly more (+3% to +36%) than those consumers not exposed (test vs. control).
Positive ROI for all brands ranged from $1.69 to $19.99 incremental for every media dollar spent. With an average ROI of $7.81 for every $1 spent, Nielsen data shows ROI from print magazine ads to be well above the average $2.79 bump ads on “digital portals/ad networks” have generated in the last five years.
It has been found that one of the main reasons PRINT ADVERTISING WORKS it that the internal pacing of print ads enables readers to encounter and study ads and offers at their own pace and in their own time. If the message is relevant, the reader can decide to take his time to examine the offer.
