The Business - Newspapers look to the digital edition in battle against decline

    Great article. It’s too bad that the British auditors won’t accept online paying subscribers as legitimate full-fledged readers. Ads in digital editions are so much more effective than web banners. I don’t know exactly why, but I notice almost all display digital paper ads, and I hardly ever notice web banner ads. When I read a Press Display paper, I’ve paid for it and I read it for 30-60 minutes. It’s exactly like reading a newspaper. When I visit a newspaper website, it’s for 1-5 stories and 5 minutes. They are too distracting and multi-leveled to absorb the full content of the newspaper.

    I’m often flummoxed by the question of whether I am uniquely newspaper obsessed or whether the newspaper-dependant population is truly large enough and enduring enough to sustain our industry. The pressdisplay model is, to me, clearly superior, but I am a child of the 80s, raised on hard copy newspapers. Are youngsters satisfied with the boggling Web sites offered by Yahoo and other popular news purveyors?

    Hi Mike.
    I am so happy your like the PressDisplay model. I think it is a more mature model than the youngsters are used to, but I am confident that as they grow up, they will see the light.

    You may be obsessed – but so are hundreds of thousands of subscriber we have today – so welcome to the club!
