The Canberra Times Wonders Why Advertising Revenue Is Down

By vg 22 May 2009 23

If the Canberra Times ever really scratches its head and wonders why ad revenue is down here is some food for their thoughts.

Take a guess as to what a small, 3 line ad in the Births/Death/Marriages costs for a Saturday? This is a simple ad, no banners, pics or anything ornate.

Take a guess…

They printed an add for my business out of focus by not matching the resolution from the submitted artwork despite several assurances from their salesperson that they would correct it.

Their response was rude & dismissive when questioned on why they did this.

This occured in 2004 and I refused to use CT for any advertising since which is just as well because I had a huge response from my Yellow Pages adds.

‘Ad’ is short for advertisement and ‘Add’ is short for addition. Come on people.

Anyway, are the contents of Births, Deaths and Marriages ads or notices?
