Make the most of multiple platforms 11/6/18

A news consumer in Lynchburg, Va., might encounter a single advertiser in four different places during the course of a day, depending on who is participating in "Own the Day."

"Own the Day," was a special offer during the last two weeks of August at the Lynchburg News & Advance. The package included a front-page sticky note on the print edition, a desktop note, a mobile presence and an email blast.

The Lynchburg paper presented the idea at a recent P2P (Publisher-to-Publisher) SNPA video conference, but multiple papers in BH Media's Virginia Group participated, according to Lynchburg Advertising Director Kevin Smith. The idea originated with Regional Publisher Kelly Mirt, who first tried out a version of it at The Charlotte Observer.
