Marketing strategies are now a notch higher
Putting across advertisements has never been as difficult as having to print them in newspapers. Forget the printing costs, which, is not negligible of course. But think about reaching your audience. How sure would you be that your intended audience will have even the slightest idea that the advert is on a particular day’s paper? Going through the trouble of printing it daily wouldn’t change the fact that most people nowadays do not read newspapers. Go digital!

Amazing, isn’t it?
