Does advertising in the Clovis Roundup work?
Our job here at CR is to get your business seen by our readers and to continuously develop that readership.
To increase readership, our editorial team is dedicated to covering news, entertainment and sports stories that are important and of interest to the Clovis community—in just six months since introducing our Sports and School News section, our readership has increased by 30,000 per issue. Our total readership currently is 170,000 per month. That means 170,000 readers in Clovis and the surrounding communities see your ad every month. As an advertiser, you need to know your market.
Advertising with CR, the Clovis community’s local newspaper is a great way to reach a variety of demographics. According to a 2013 study conducted by the Reynolds Journalism Institute, 70% of an individual areas’ population reads the community newspaper, either in print or digital form. With respect to demographics, the penetration rates are as high as 85% for people aged 60 and above, and a decent 74% for those between the ages of 30 and 59. Surprisingly, 79% of the youngest adults aged 18 to 29 also read their community newspaper, with more than half still reading the print edition.
As daily papers struggle (only 1,408 dailies remain nationwide), community papers like CR are thriving (there are 7,000 community papers nationwide). Why? Because community papers report the news going on in your backyard, on your city council’s dais, on your neighborhood school campuses—news you rarely get from a major daily paper. Because the news is relevant to them, they read the community newspaper cover to cover. As an advertiser, this is vital to remember: it’s not the size of the paper that determines its bite.
When you do an advertising campaign with CR, we guarantee your ads will be seen. But how can you measure your return on investment? Those numbers are harder to determine. You may only get 10 customers who come in and say they saw your ad in CR, but you have to consider the ripple effect. When those 10 customers have a positive experience at your business, they will tell other people, and then those people will tell other people and so on. You also have to consider the many people who may come in your store or use your services who don’t mention the ad—if you advertise with multiple sources (print, television, billboard) odds are when you ask, ‘How did you hear about us?’ the customer will only mention the most recent place they saw your ad.
What you want to accomplish first and foremost with your campaign is brain real estate—so when someone thinks ‘I need X’ or ‘I want Y’, your business is the first name that pops up. If you run a solid campaign with multiple media sources, you will gain brain real estate from your customer base. They may not remember where or how they heard about you, but when they see your name out there enough, you will just automatically come to their mind.
