    Newspapers’ price hikes in the U.S.A.

    Iris Chyi’s latest analysis documented industry-wide, more-than-substantial price hikes in the U.S. newspaper industry. Seven-day home delivery price more than doubled, and weekday single-copy price tripled. Seven-day subscription now costs $510 a year – print subscribers are paying on average $293 more to have the same newspaper delivered to their doorstep.

    Iris Chyi was the author of the WAN-IFRA Report “Print-Online Performance Gap” (2017).

    Print product development

    “Which solutions are missing for the acquisition of new advertising customers? Which products would we recommend 100% to our personal environment? What kind of product with what content do we want? And can we do something completely different? These questions had long been the focus of the product managers at SÜDKURIER Medienhaus and the idea of #KARRIEREGEIL was born just one brainstorming session later.” (WAN-IFRA Report, Print Innovation Awards 2018, Frankfurt am Main 2019, page 28)

    smartpaper24

    The e-commerce platform for the production and distribution of newspapers with a circulation of 1 copy or more

    The business with printed newspapers is in a deep crisis with no foreseeable end. The question is whether newspapers will still be printed on paper in the long term. The perspective of marketing editorial content or advertising more effectively in a purely digital way seems promising and is therefore in the center of the strategies of numerous newspaper publishers. With the e-commerce platforms zeitungsdruck-online.de and smartpaper24.com (from 9/2019), Funke Druck GmbH is investigating the question of whether there can be a market for newspaper printing 4.0 after digital transformation of print. With growth through innovative product and service offerings as well as in new business segments.
