HOW BIG ARE WE?
In the industry survey you were asked to
complete for CNA to report a
cumulative revenue figure to the
Advertising Standards Authority (ASA),
our members returns indicate the 2014
calendar year saw over $50 million in
Advertising Revenue from members.
We will follow up with a request to
update circulation numbers for all papers
in the next month so we can build a
clearer picture to market the
strength and reach of the
Independent Community Newspapers.
As noted in the October member newsletter last year,
your committee approved a promotion where Inkwise
(formerly Guardian Print) and Beacon Print Hawke’s
Bay and Whakatane would pay first year subscriptions
to C N A for papers who were not current members.
As a result we welcome the following new members
to C N A and will hopefully see some of them at
