Myth Buster
Wait a minute, nobody reads newspapers anymore, right?
While it’s true that circulation numbers at daily newspapers have plummeted in the past two decades, community newspapers continue to shine because they are a trusted and valuable source of information on what’s happening in the reader’s neighborhood. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Newspaper Association (NNA) report, 150 million people regularly read a community newspaper. They spend an average of 39 minutes with each edition, and 73% read all or most of each edition. They also share it with others, passing it on to an average of 2.3 people.
Everyone is on the Internet, right?
Wrong. According to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, a federal agency, one in five U.S. households are not connected to the Internet at home. If you’re using a digital-only approach, you’re missing a large segment of your market, especially if you want to reach people of color. Most interesting, a majority – 58% – of the 24 million offline households say they have no interest or need to be online. View report.
According to the NNA survey, 65% say ads in a community newspaper influence their purchasing decisions. That is far, far better than online ads. According to a 2023 study published by Statista Research Department, only 6% of responding U.S. consumers found the majority of digital ads to be very relevant to them; another 35% said they were somewhat relevant. Another Statista study in 2018 showed that about 35% of U.S. internet users aged 26 to 35 and nearly 60% of users aged 56 and over held a negative viewpoint towards ads on websites. The response toward online video ads was even worse, at 40% and 70 respectively. View report.
