Why advertise in Regional Newspapers?

The launch of emma™ (Enhanced Media Metrics Australia), a new audience insights survey, has brought richer, more accurate data with a range of innovations to help West Regional Newspapers and our advertisers understand how West Australians consume and respond to media and advertising - how we live, work, shop, our attitudes, leisure activities and more. The study revealed a strong desire for community connection and local information.

Regional papers are the best, most accessible source of local news & information

  • Regional newspapers are read regularly and thoroughly.

  • Readers scan for information of personal relevance and local importance.

  • Readers want to be well informed about issues impacting their local area.

  • Compared with other media channels readers of regional newspapers are more focused on content and less likely to be multitasking.

  • The local relevance of content drives strong engagement and action for regional newspapers!

The emma™ survey has given us specific insights into a number of industries. Following are download links to some highlights of the survey results.
