6 | NEVADA CONTRACTORS ASSOCIAT ION WHY ADVERTISING IN PRINTED PUBLICATIONS MATTER We are surrounded by digital media, and while online content is widely accessible today, too much can lead to “information overload” and general reader disengagement. Advertising in a printed publication is a strategic investment, and if you are looking to get your products and services in front of the right readers, trust the facts. Placing an ad in a printed publication is the way to go. Consumers find print ads to be more trustworthy, and in a study conducted by MarketingSherpa, 82% of respondents said they trust print ads when making important purchasing decisions. Print ads drive consumer action. Association members view their printed publications as valued resources—and printed advertisements as credible. In a global research study conducted by Two Sides, 58% of participants said they don’t trust the majority of the ads they view online, and many reported they try to avoid online advertisements entirely. Q. IN GENERAL, WHICH TYPE OF ADVERTISING CHANNELS DO YOU TRUST MORE WHEN YOU WANT TO MAKE A PURCHASE DECISION? Print ads (Newspaper) 82% Radio ads 71% Video ads that appear prior to an online video 47% Online banner ads 39% TV ads 80% Ads in outdoor and public places (like billboards, transit ads, posters, etc.) 69% Sponsored posts on blogs that I read 43% Mobile phone ads 39% Ads/catalogs I receive in the mail 76% Search engine ads (Google,Yahoo!, Bing, etc.) 61% Ads embedded in social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) 43% Ads in podcasts 37% Online pop-ups 25% Source: MarketingSherpa % of respondents who selected each option

In research commissioned by the Postal Service Office of Inspector General, consumers were found to process digital ads more quickly, but they were more engaged with print ads. And, over time, research participants showed a greater recall rate for printed ads.
