Advertisers who are cutting back on newspaper advertising are missing a trick.

It’s not only true, it gets even better!

The results show that as a promotional medium newspapers increase overall campaign effectiveness as well as boosting other media – including press advertising can make TV advertising campaigns twice as effective and online digital display four times more effective. It goes on to state newspaper advertising can increase the overall effectiveness of a campaign by over five times.
