Are you running print display ads online? If not, you could be missing a huge upsell opportunity.

You know the routine, a customer schedules an ad on your site to be included in your next print cycle. The creative is finished. You have the run dates. It’s ready to go, right?

Not quite.

Take a step back and ask "what could we offer to improve this advertiser's campaign?" Well, let's consider the market:

  • Print advertising, while it remains a strong source for target markets, has slowly decreased over the past several years.
  • Online audiences continue to grow at a rapid rate, particularly with younger users.
  • Advertisers expect more from their campaigns in a digital age.
  • Retention is still just as important as making the initial sale.

So how do you maximize the reach of these ad campaigns? Bring them into the digital age. Placing your print display ads online is a powerful opportunity for your advertisers and for you.
