Print Advertising and the American Shopping Culture

By Chris Barr

Despite reports to the contrary, print advertising is alive and well, perhaps better than ever. You might be surprised to learn just how powerful the print medium is in today's advertising world.

Print advertising is alive and well, perhaps better than ever according to new reports conducted by MORI Research. You might be shocked to hear that. Did you know that approximately 70% of adults have used a newspaper insert in the last 30 days to make or plan a purchase?

Newspaper inserts and direct mail advertisements are a staple of the American shopping culture and are welcomed into American homes. When was the last time you actually read the Sunday paper without becoming side-tracked by the colorful print ads and amazing offers?

You're not alone. American adults cite news over advertising as the dominant reason for buying or reading Sunday newspapers (51% over 31%). This means, however, that advertising is very important for a large segment of readers. That's millions of consumers actively reading print advertisements. With these staggering facts in mind, it is easy to understand why each week the large corporations and small businesses in your area spend thousands of advertising dollars sending you ads via newspapers and direct mail pieces. Review the list below and ask yourself if your business should do a better job with print advertising.
