Dealing with Health as an Advertising Category: The Newspaper Media Advantage

June 05, 2014

Most newspapers provide dedicated health content in print and online on a weekly basis, where advertising can be placed next to content where reader interest is high.

Holiday Season Anxiety 2013: Online strong; Consumers, retailers uneasy

November 06, 2013

Robust consumer spending is vital for a healthy economy. It is especially important for the retailers, and for media enterprises that thrive in a vigorous advertising environment. But consumer activity in the aggregate today can hardly be described as robust. Not horrible, mind you, when compared to what most experienced a few years ago. At best it might be described as growing at a tepid pace. Consumer spending in the second quarter rose at an annual rate of 1.8 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Third-quarter growth, estimated by the Mortgage Bankers Association, looks to be marginally weaker, at 1.5 percent. Other forecasters’ predictions are in the same vein, with numbers below 2 percent for the third quarter, with fourth quarter calculations faintly higher. Considering that the average rate for all 250 quarters going back to 1950 is 3.4 percent, the current velocity is anemic (more on this later).

Consumer attitudes and behaviors are influenced by multiple factors, such as employment, income, debt, and feelings about personal future prospects. Most recently, the consumer mindset was jostled by brawling battles over the federal government shutdown and debt-ceiling deadline. Monthly polling data recorded those consumer jitters.

Used vehicles in the United States, 2011

March 02, 2011

Used cars are sold very differently than new ones. More than 90 percent of people intending to buy a used car, enter the market looking only at used cars. There is a separate yet distinct buying process for used-car buyers. There were 37 million used vehicles sold in 2010. And, for those people looking at used cars, newspaper media are the primary information vehicle driving traffic to dealerships.

January 18, 2011
