Tombstones for Media Chefs PIP
In a segment we have named Tombstones for media, we highlight programs that have gone off of the market, and suggest replacement options.
CHEFS PIP went off the market in late 2015. As a replacement we recommend Tristar Products, Inc. OTP – this program is made up of mostly cooking products.
Tombstones for Media - More is NoMore
Tombstones for Media
In our segment Tombstones for Media we highlight programs that have gone off the market. Here are two young family targeted catalog blow-in programs that are no longer available: Sensational Beginnings Catalog Inserts, and Lilly's Kids Catalog Inserts. Elarbee Media recommends replacing these programs with CP Toys Blow-in.
Tombstones for Media Home Decorator's Collection
In a segment we call Tombstones for Media, Elarbee Media highlights programs that are now "off" the market. We also offer suggestions on replacement options for the circulation.
Two historic programs that are no longer available are Home Decorators Collection Catalog Inserts and the Home Decorators Collection PIP.
Our recommendation for replacement is The Company Store Catalog Blow-in Program.
Tombstones for Media
Parent’s Pediatrician Pack is the latest media to die off. In a feature we call Tombstones for Media, we highlight the demise of print media channels, and offer options for replacing the circulation. Parent’s Pediatrician Pack carried offers to the Parents of young children with the implied endorsement of the health care provider distributing the information. Our strongest recommendation for replacing this circulation is American Baby’s co-op envelope offerings.
Tombstones for Media Pennysaver
In our segment Tombstones for Media, we highlight the demise of print media channels. One of the most significant recent losses is the California circulation of Pennysaver. Over 10.5 million circulation weekly that is now completely off the market.
When major circulation programs pull of the market, where does that leave those with their media plans set in for the year? Scrambling! Viable replacements for on page advertising are Valassis Shared Mail and the Redplum and Smartsource co-op FSI, but replacing a weekly circulation program with this much scale isn’t easy.
For insert players, Valassis shared mail, and newspapers combined with their TMC products are the most effective replacements.
Tombstones for Media USA Weekend Folds
Tombstones for Media
The recent demise of USA Weekend brought forward the thought that many times, we only hear the positive news about media circulation. Announcements are made about redesign, expanded rate bases and new program launches, but when a media dies off, it can take a while to hear about it. With so much data cached on the internet, if you search online you would swear it was still publishing. In Tombstones for Media, we are going to try to not only alert you to the closures, but recommend replacement options. In this continuing climate of consolidation, this may become a very active segment for our posts.
RIP USA Weekend.
