What is print advertising and how does it work?

Print advertising is a form of outbound marketing where you will use print media (newspapers, magazines, brochures, billboards and flyers) to advertise your services.

Your print ads can be via a text-based article, an image, or a mixture of both – your goal will be the same, capturing your audience’s attention so they visit your website or local shop to find out more.

While this may seem an outdated type of advertising it’s still an extremely effective way to reach your customers, especially the older demographic.

What are the different types of print advertising?

There are various print media opportunities for your business, here are the most common types available:


Covering local, regional and national publications, newspapers are an excellent cost-effective option for your business with their wide reach and low cost. Work with LOCALiQ and advertise your services to thousands of local communities across the UK.


Let’s get creative – magazines provide the opportunity to promote visually appealing ads to your audience, catering to the specific niche of each publication.

Direct mail

Target a specific audience with a well-timed direct mail campaign, sending your potential customers brochures, letters and flyers through the post.

Posters and billboards

Attract your customers while they’re on the move with poster and billboard advertising.


Advertise your services within a local directory (for example, the Yellow Pages), including your name, address and contact details.


Offer a brochure to potential customers or send them your publications directly, promoting your services and contact information.

What are the different print advertising methods?

There are various options within print advertising, here are the most common ad types:

Classified Advertising

Short, text-based print ads, placed within a specific category in a newspaper or magazine. A cheaper alternative to the other ad formats, however they contain less information.

Display Advertising

Larger ads, consisting of text, images or sometimes both creatives. They can be placed anywhere within your chosen publication and tailored to your preferred size too. They’re more expensive than classified ads but will enable you to reach a wider audience.


A paid article which features content relating to your business, such as your products and services. They’re a great way of improving your visibility and help you to build trust with the publication’s readers.
