Las nuevas fórmulas para potenciar los ingresos de los medios locales

La cercanía y la capacidad de participar activamente en la comunidad sitúan a los medios locales y regionales en una posición envidiable con respecto a otros medios que abarcan espectros informativos de mayor amplitud.

Este posicionamiento, junto a la caída generalizada de la inversión publicitaria en los últimos años y la pérdida de protagonismo en los anuncios clasificados, ha propiciado la búsqueda de nuevas fórmulas que garanticen la viabilidad de estos medios. Así, la relación con las marcas ha cambiado en los últimos años. Ha pasado de ser una relación con menos anunciantes pero más estrecha y prolongada en el tiempo, en el que el medio busca, en la afinidad de la relación, la consecución de los objetivos de posicionamiento del anunciante, tal y como puede verse en la experiencia del Charlotte Agenda, que exponemos en nuestro resumen de hoy.

En este afán de mejorar la relación con la comunidad, los medios locales exploran también otras vías de ingresos. Los eventos, la publicidad nativa, la generación de contenidos para las marcas, la recuperación de los micropagos por noticias y una mayor conexión con los comercios locales son algunos ejemplos que analizamos hoy.

That was the established ecosystem for many decades, until the advent of the internet robbed the publishers of the classified ad section which made up much of their revenue, and falling print circulations as audiences get their local news from digital sources.

Watch retail to know the direction of local media [inglés]

en TheMediabriefing.com

For local media in the US, advertising revenue still determines our success. Sure, we’re trying to shift more of the revenue to readers with digital paid content strategies, but we still live and die on ads. And one thing that has struck me since I took over as executive editor of a handful of newspapers in the US state of Wisconsin, is how the retail landscape has shifted in my communities over the past fifty years.

Paywalls this month, pay-to-play events next month. A little here, a little there. And when one solution doesn’t work, news digs up an older idea, and tries it in a different flavor.
