Featured session: Tuesday, Sept. 12
SNPA - Inland Annual Meeting, Colorado Springs, Colo.
With Dolph Tillotson, president, Southern Newspapers, Inc., Galveston, Texas; PJ Browning, president, Newspaper Division, Evening Post Publishing, Charleston, S.C.; and Doug Phares, president & COO, Sandusky Newspaper Group, Sandusky, Ohio
This Tuesday morning session during next month's SNPA - Inland Annual Meeting will feature a discussion of the ways publishers use numerical benchmarking to track progress, or the lack of it.
What's the proper ratio of salaries to revenue? How do publishers track the impact of programmatic changes on rates and revenue? What is the proper ratio of ads to news content, and how have recent business shifts changed the picture?
These three panelists, who are very knowledgeable of practices in benchmarking, will discuss the tools of this trade, and much more.
For his part, Dolph Tillotson of Southern Newspapers, says he intends to share thoughts on financial benchmarking that he learned from several masters of the art – Jim Boone and Carmage Walls. He said, "I'll discuss the benchmarking we use in Southern Newspapers, Inc., for our print products, how we use them, and several notes from friends who also do regular benchmarking and take a slightly different slant."More
