A little local difficulty by Ray Snoddy

What to do with an accidental audience by Ray Snoddy

Over the past few years, some UK nationals have garnered a healthy and demographically-attractive overseas audience.

Ad break by Ray Snoddy

The profitability of newspapers derives, in large measure, from advertising. Traditionally, national newspaper sales teams have been good at promoting their own papers, but less so the merits of the medium as a whole. For that reason, the Newspaper Marketing Agency was set up, tasked with communicating the benefits of newspapers to the advertising world. Ray Snoddy talks to the NMA’s chief executive, Maureen Duffy, about progress to date and the challenges ahead.

The rise of the frees by Ray Snoddy

Free publications are not new. Door-to-door papers have been around for ages, as have postal B2B free magazines. Even the distribution model is not new; free mags have long been stuffed into the hands of commuters or left in pick-up bins. What is new is that they are competing directly and successfully with mainstream established paid-for titles. Ray Snoddy talks to some of the leading lights in the sector.

On the face of it, the outlook for newspapers is little different now to what it was three or four years ago. Circulations were declining then, and they still declining now.

Apples and Pears by Ray Snoddy

Ever since the internet was first identified as one of the contributory factors in newspaper circulation decline, publishers and advertisers have been obsessing over measurement issues; in particular the search for a single measure of a newspaper’s on and offline reach. The subject was discussed at the recent Venice Festival of Media. Ray Snoddy was there.

Tea at the Telegraph by Ray Snoddy

The Telegraph’s move to its shiny new newsroom at Victoria continues to attract much comment, some of it one-sided and not entirely positive. Ray Snoddy met with Telegraph editor Will Lewis to hear his side of the story.
