Webinar: Will Paywalls Kill Newspapers’ Web Advertising?

December 7, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


This webinar is co-presented by the Minnesota News Media Institute and Online Media Campus

Will Paywalls Kill Newspapers’ Web Advertising?

Hold onto the seat of your pants for this webinar.  There’s a lot of research that points to the fact that paywalls won’t curtail web advertising, but not for the reasons you may think.  In this webinar you’ll learn that local advertisers are actually migrating away from banner ads placed around local news, and that local consumers are actually pretty ho-hum when it comes to reading local news on the web.  The conclusion:  A paywall is likely to bolster print subscriptions, not affect web traffic all that much, and thus not curtail web advertising.  Gordon Borrell from Borrell Associates will outline the results of its survey of 2,000 sites looking at rates and paypall policies, and link those results with overall trends in web advertising.
