It offers advertisersthe opportunity to establish andmaintain a loyal relationship withconsumers that other media cannotmatch. Consider that 85% ofCanadians read a daily newspaperregularly, with 72% of them report-ing that they regularly read commu-nity newspapers. On the magazineside, the numbers are equallyimpressive, with 85% of Canadianssaying that they regularly read mag-azines, the most popular being pub-lications that cover news, hobbiesand fashion. Significantly, researchalso shows Canadians read news-papers and magazines more regu-larly than they watch television. Given such a strong connectionbetween Canadians and their pre-ferred print vehicles, it is hardly sur-prising that they offer the advertiseran unmatched opportunity to reachcore reader audiences. But loyaltyshould not bring complacency.Creative needs to capture the voiceand tone of a publication and tospeak directly to its readers, to pro-vide a chance to educate the con-sumer. Print audiences’ relation-ships with their preferred newspa-pers and magazines mean thatadvertisers can take a tactical standwith their creative, marrying a callto action with the speed to marketof newspapers and magazines.Print advertising works. A recentstudy found that Canadians weremore likely to consult newspapersthan television and radio combinedif they were looking for advertisingabout such items as appliances,travel and mortgages.Print is flexible and receptive tothe demands of advertisers. In thelast decade, print owners haveworked diligently to improve thequality of their products withgreater flexibility in all aspects oftheir business, to provide moreinnovation, greater levels of cus-tomer service and outstanding fullcolour reproduction. That meansprint, whether newspaper or maga-zine, can assume any role asked ofit.Almost half of all Canadians,49%, have bought a product thatthey read about in a newspaper,with 55% those aged between 35and 44 the most likely to havebought something they read aboutin a newspaper. However, thepower of print is not restricted tothose in a single age demographic.Canada’s children and young peoplealso display the loyalty to print thattheir parents and grandparentshave. A study by the Kaiser FamilyFoundation in the U.S. found that ina typical day almost half of all eightto 18 year olds read magazines andanother third of them typically reada newspaper.Print isn’t passive, but an opt-inmedium, as this handbook shows,and there is nothing more powerfulthan personal choice.  WHY   PRINT?  49% OF CANADIANS HAVEBOUGHT A PRODUCT THATTHEY READ ABOUT IN ANEWSPAPER 4How Powerful is Print!
