The newspaper market in India has been constantly growing and is constantly changing to keep its readers intact. Earlier the newspapers were just printed on paper and delivered to their readers. Other than the news, newspapers showcased different ads on every other page for different brands. This remains the trend, but with the printed newspaper, digital newspapers have also made their entry into the market. The newspaper readership remains strong in the country.


The technology is advancing and there are now multiple platforms available for brands to place their ads to engage customers. This also creates a dilemma of figuring out the best method for advertising and achieving the best reach.
