5 Considerations When Comparing Trust in Print VS Trust in Digital Advertising

11/20/23 | Published By Angela Campbell

Despite technological advancements, the trust factor in printed magazine advertising remains resilient. Here are 5 things to consider before putting all your eggs in only one basket:

  1. Tangibility:
    Physical magazines offer a sense of permanence and credibility that digital platforms often lack. The reader has the reassurance of the printed word in their hands, which can boost the perceived legitimacy of the ads contained within.

  2. Audience Engagement: 
    Readers of printed magazines tend to be more engaged and focused, enhancing the impact of the advertisements. Digital content, however, often competes with various online distractions.

  3. Ad-Blocking:
    Online ads are frequently ignored or blocked by users, while print ads cannot be blocked, ensuring better visibility and recall.

  4. Fraud Prevention:
    Print is immune to the digital advertising issues like ad fraud or viewability, thus creating a more trustworthy environment.

  5. Quality Control:
    Print media has long-standing editorial guidelines, ensuring high-quality content. This often extends to the advertisements, implying a certain standard that online platforms, with their user-generated content and variable ad quality, may not guarantee.

Combining both Print and Digital advertising will always be the best solution. Leverage both to complement each other and grow your audience. Let’s talk about how we can partner to get you results.
