Three Inexpensive Revenue Ideas You Can Launch this Month
Updated: Mar 10
Ideas to boost your magazine or newspaper bottom line.
As newspaper and magazine publishers you are constantly innovating and adapting.
Here are three ways you can help your clients and your bottom line this month using KOPCO’s high quality, short, digital press runs that are now a low-cost option to expand your advertising offerings.
When designed well, postcards are a great option for an advertiser to stand out.
Postcards can deliver a high impact message, and Kopco offers quality, low-cost options for direct mail postcards:
Here are pricing examples so you can calculate your potential ROI:
A 5.5 in. x 8.5 in. postcard with full color on both sides starts at about 16¢ each.
1,000 quantity: $115*
5,000 quantity: $550*
10,000 quantity: $1,100*
Bonus ideas to offer your advertiser:
Offer your advertiser a press overrun of their high impact postcard that they can send out to their list or we can take care of the mailing for you on their behalf. All we need is their mailing list. We can even offer mail tracking so you and your customer knows when their mail is delivered. This provides you an opportunity at a new revenue stream with very little additional effort.
Further leverage your mail list by offering a supplemental mailing separate from your publication. Research shows a personalized piece of mail that directly addresses the recipient is much more effective than one that is generic. With our digital presses using variable data we can personalize the messaging to the recipient. All we need is an Excel or .csv file.
Offer your advertiser a targeted mailing list either by purchasing a list or saturating their postal zone.
Three industries that would be a great fit right now:
Tax preparers With stimulus money, CARES Act funding, and PPP loans many people are concerned about their tax liabilities. Tax preparers will be looking for individuals and small business owners who have always done their own taxes but are cautious this year.
Pets, Pets, Pets! This is an industry that continues to grow. Nearly 70% of American households with at least one pet.
Wedding services including photographers, florists and caterers. It’s the season when a lot of brides-to-be are selecting their wedding vendors. Help them stand out from the crowd!
Options such as a wrap or a second cover of your publication can help your advertiser stand out like never before (we can provide samples of each). For example, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, imagine a glossy four-page cover featuring a local jeweler with beautiful imagery and high impact messaging. Kopco can also personalize these custom covers with our digital printing technology. Every prospect can receive a personalized message such as “[First Name], pick out a special piece today!” Your subscribers feel special while benefitting your advertiser with big cover impact.
Bonus tip: Jewelers often have access to co-op marketing dollars!
A 12 in. x 18 in., four-page cover, 4/4 on 100# gloss cover is a very cost effective way to help your advertiser stand out while charging a premium advertising rate:
250 quantity: $125*

1,000 quantity: $500*
