Newspaper is more of an information medium than it is a motivational medium. What is important to remember is that your potential customers will read, see, note, or associate you advertisement or message at a time when they are already motivated to buy, but seldom before that. Newspaper was great twenty years ago when we had the time to sit and read it everyday, but unfortunately, it doesn’t play as well in today’s mobile and fast paced world. Newspaper does not afford you the ability to target your customers, so it tends to be a “Spray and Pray” medium. Additionally, in many instances, controlling the placement of your advertisement within the newspaper can be difficult at best.
