Why targeted media? Our audiences are the difference between ‘people’ and ‘prospects’.
As today’s media landscape becomes increasingly fragmented, reliable opportunities for businesses to truly connect with consumers and hold their attention are harder to come by. Due to the targeted nature of niche media’s audience, while readership numbers may not compare to mass-media titles, marketers gain access to a highly relevant audience; in other words, ‘prospects’ who are more likely to be converted into customers, making it an efficient and highly cost-effective marketing tool.
