WHY SCHOOL NEWSLETTER?
As long as people have children there will always be a need for schools and as long as there are parents, there will always be advertisers trying to reach them. The school newsletter industry is a RECESSION RESISTANT industry. In fact, even during poor economic conditions, parents typically will continue to spend on their children and cut expenses elsewhere. Also, as parents get younger the more likely they will only get their information online or on their phone. Through professional, consistent and accountable service delivery, The School Newsletter Company creates an image and market reputation just with the way we do business. In addition, through custom developed systems and procedures, the customer has a consistent experience throughout the entire school year.
The community newspaper publishing business is a $22Billion (IBISWorld) annual business! The point is that the industry is large and the there is a demand for local advertising opportunities to reach local markets. While the print industry is declining, our online industry is growing which will combine two powerful forces, local advertising and digital advertising.
