2 | OKLAHOMA TRUCKING ASSOCIAT ION BACKGROUND The Oklahoma Trucking Association (OTA) was established in 1932. It is a non-profit, full-service trade association formed to promote and protect the interests of the trucking industry within Oklahoma. In this age of economic deregulation, OTA is committed to help you cope with the daily minefields of compliance and enforcement regulation that a carrier faces from all levels of our government. OTA members are as focused on safety as they are on profitability because, in the long term, a company cannot excel in the one aspect of its operation without succeeding in the other. The safety arm of the Association is the Oklahoma Safety & Security Council. LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GET IN FRONT OF OKLAHOMA’S TRUCKING INDUSTRY? 5,350+ The Oklahoma Trucking Association is comprised of corporate members, highly targeted trucking executives, shipping executive members, state legislative representatives, key business executives and other businesses across the state. ANNUAL REACH DISTRIBUTION 44% OF THE OKLAHOMA MOTOR CARRIER MAGAZINE’S READERS MAKE PURCHASING DECISIONS OFTEN. 37% OF READERS ARE OWNERS OR EXECUTIVES WITHIN THEIR COMPANIES.

6 | OKLAHOMA TRUCKING 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

Strongly Agree Agree Neither Agree or Disagree Disagree Strongly Disagree 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% I don’t pay attention to most advertisements online I can’t remember the last time I clicked an online advertisement I do my best to block or avoid online advertisements I find online advertisements annoying and usually not relevant I do not trust many of the advertisements I see online I would be more likely to take an action after seeing an advertisement in a printed newspaper or magazine than I would if I saw the same advertisement online I pay more attention to messages and advertisements on printed leaflets and mail than messages and advertisements delivered through emails Source: Two Sides There’s also a psychological aspect to printed ads. 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. Readers of printed publications tend to be more engaged, and increased engagement leads to sales! 75% prefer to read printed magazines over digital options. 65% believe they gain a deeper understanding of the story when they read from print media. 52% agreed that they spend too much time on electronic devices. 46% indicated that they would be more likely to take action after seeing an advertisement in a printed magazine than they would if they saw the same ad online. 80% of all respondents read a printed magazine at least once a month.
