Most of us will have thought about a Marketing budget for our business, however big or small it may be, because we know we need to advertise to get customers and clients for our business.  But, where do we start?
Newspapers are considered the primary advertising medium by 99.4% of all US retailers. Newspapers have been there in every step of the typical shop owner's life from the very beginning. Newspapers covered his birth, his marriage, the death of his parents and everything else.  There's a big number circulation to go with the big number price tag, so you're sure your advert will be seen by many new customers. Sounds good right?
HOWEVER...there's a few problems.  Newspaper ads are great, and an effective part of a larger marketing strategy.  But less than half of newspaper readers will read the entire paper. Most are skimmers. How many times through the paper does it take for you to find your own ad?
Over half of every newspaper is advertising. Almost as bad as TV where commercial breaks now last longer and longer, unless you have Sky Plus and can forward through the ads. More than two-thirds of the huge and heavy Sunday brick is advertising.
Newspaper rates are climbing faster than any other advertising media. The smallest of ads in the smallest papers can cost over €100. One time, one shot and BAM!, it's at the bottom of the bird cage or spread out for your doggy's toilet training.

Now, what would a quarter page advert in the newspaper cost you? (Hint: it's currently €9,440 for a colour quarter in the Irish Times).  Newspapers have a wide circulation, certainly.  But... how many people will even see your advert, or notice and remember and ACT ON IT if they do see it?  How many of those people are your existing customers, who already like and trust your business?
