Billings Montana--//MNA press//--Newspapers have been valued community resources across the United States for as long as America has been a country, including here in Billings Montana, but many have faced challenges from increasing costs and difficulty keeping up with the latest technology.
However, one form of new technology can help these papers survive, but even so, they have become dinosaurs that are being outpaced by the digital media.
A specifically designed platform can help papers contribute to their survival by capitalizing on mobile revenue options. In the case of the local Liberal media, they make you have to fight pop ups and subscribe alerts. It makes a person want to just click away from the site.
Instead of leveraging customer loyalty and making it into an increased use of mobile technology and mobile revenue opportunities, most papers are stuck with a hard copy newspaper that is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, just like pagers, brick phone and the like. Yet they dabble with the digital world in a limited capacity.
It is important to forge and create relationships with consumers and advertisers. Not count the revenue they make off of the advertisers and the customers. But more importantly, focus more on the implementation of technology and the ongoing management of that technology.
Digital platforms such as the Montana News has, offers a boundary-less opportunities for local, state and national advertisers that go far beyond a print listing in a newspaper.
