Newspapers & Local Media

The industry is buzzing about changes that might be in store for the journalists in particular and the news media in general. The “Fake News” alarm is sounded without discretion, and news consumers are confused about what it means. Yours can be a clear voice above the din. Some pundits...
Raise your hand if you’re tired of hearing about the slow, agonizing death of newspapers. Sure, print is on the decline. But it’s still got a strong readership that happily pays for a subscription and ad performance is high. Digital still gives many publishers fits, but the kinks are slowly...
It’s not a pleasant thought, but sacrificing some advertising revenue could give newspapers the whitelisted status that they need to beat the ad blocker surge. Publications are approaching the problem from different angles. French daily, Le Figaro, took a big risk by banning ad blockers on their site, and it...
Like a giant game of Pac-Man, bigger newspapers around the country are gobbling up smaller papers, all in the hopes of creating a more formidable, united whole. It’s about the ever-elusive advertising dollars. They just aren’t there, especially for smaller, local papers. But with a consolidation strategy, a little time...
Recruitment ad sales seem to be especially challenging for some ad reps, while others drive much more business in the right direction. Is it luck? Experience? A better publication with a broader reach? Maybe, at least in part, but there’s more to it than that. RELATED: How the Right Online...
The battle between print and digital is ongoing, and digital seems by all counts to be winning. People are spending more and more time every year consuming media digitally, and advertisers are following. But a new study from the Canada Post and Canadian neuromarketing firm TrueImpact shows that publishers probably...
With the digital world taking over practically everything, it’s important to keep up. Digital publishing is a large part of the magazine, newspaper, or book market. There is almost any kind of publication available in a digital format. That means that companies need to stay up to speed with the...
When the Internet first became an everyday thing, the focus of developers and designers was to create the most eye-catching graphics possible in an attempt to lure users in. Unfortunately, a lesson learned by many designers and developers (we’re looking at you, Myspace) learned in time that these tactics didn’t...
The idea that newspapers should give up digital publishing is a radical one. And it’s also wrong. A new book from H. Iris Chyi, titled “Trial and Error: U.S. Newspapers’ Digital Struggles toward Inferiority,” makes the argument that newspapers are so bad at the digital side of publication that they...
Is print newspaper bottoming out? Not likely. A report last October from consulting firm McKinsey painted a relatively positive picture for the print publishing industry, claiming that “many of the people likely to abandon print newspapers and print consumer magazines have already done so … most of [the] core audience...
Redirecting money and energy away from a disinterested audience and toward one that’s more likely to stop and listen is no longer the digital advertising pipe-dream of the 90s. It’s a genuine brass ring, all because of data and the way that it’s transforming targeted display ads. RELATED: Forecasting the...

The number of visitors flowing through your website each day determines your profits from advertising, the number of paid subscribers you can expect to see, and revenues from related products and event sales. But taking the right steps to grow your website...

How in touch are you with the real expectations of your target audiences? Before you can cash in on a growing amount of web traffic, you have to understand why your website appeals to your target demographic and what you can do to enhance that appeal and generate more revenue....
For centuries, the publishing industry had operated its advertising business as though the purpose was to find the most intrusive ways to put a client’s advertising message in front of an audience. When the Internet started to become a primary source of information for people around the world and publishers...
Amazon and Washington Post CEO Jeff Bezos is known for his unorthodox solutions to problems, and his ideas that seem to shock more than excite. When he announced that Amazon would start using drones for same-day deliveries, most people laughed at the idea. But now, drone delivery services are being...
Traditional media publishers are finding digital publishing to be a lot more dynamic than print ever was. Even when television emerged as the primary way that advertisers reached mass audiences, nothing about the marketing part of the technology changed for decades. Any changes that would occur in print, radio, or...
The mass majority of the world operates digitally. Business, banking, job searches, even food orders can be given online. A website is both a great convenience for visitors and a source of revenue for businesses. Now you have a website…so what’s next? Read on for some tips to help improve...
While subscription can serve as your publication’s lifeblood, attracting new subscribers serves as the sustenance that will keep your publication growing and thriving. Unfortunately, and especially in the age of the Internet, too many organizations and associations have gotten caught up in marketing gimmicks that not only work to push...
If you’re a trade publisher, you obviously face some difficult challenges in today’s era of (mostly) free online information. As traditional advertising opportunities dry up, many of your competitors have pinned their hopes for long-term profitability on the monetization of their publications’ companion websites. But before you join them by...
A new year doesn’t necessarily mean new hires — at least not right away. As the job market peaks and declines dynamically over the course of the year, it’s important for job board owners to understand how and where hiring and quitting patterns intersect. If you want to learn how...
When it comes to comparing print revenue to digital revenue in the newspaper industry, perception is much different than reality. As digital has evolved, newspapers have learned a great deal about how to reach and audience, and what type of content to create. The biggest thing that newspapers have learned...
Mobile apps are a great way to draw your customers’ online attention into your company’s own dedicated space (and firmly away from that of your competition), while also building brand loyalty and collecting a wealth of data about their preferences, habits and locations. But to enjoy this potential to the...
Ever since the Great Recession of 2008, the newspaper industry has been in a constant start of flux. People are more careful with their disposable income, and newspapers are finding it difficult to get people to pay for information that is already available online for free. The other problem is...
The cyclical nature of any business tends to set off alarms when that cycle trends downward, and that is exactly what is happening in the print advertising industry lately. While the latest numbers for print advertising companies are mostly negative, there are trends happening in digital advertising that print publishers...
The fourth quarter of 2015 continues to promise a better 2016 for the job market and the U.S. economy as a whole. Let’s explore what the Labor Department’s October report had to say about October’s strong showing, from what the numbers revealed to what the trends imply. Fulfilling September’s Promise...
