"We used a combination of print, targeted digital display and bespoke Facebook solutions, which we found to be very effective as the business had feedback to suggest that some of the enquiries they had received confirmed that they had seen the advert either in the newspaper, on our local news sites or via social media"

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 audiences attention so they visit your website or local shop to find out more.

While this may seem outdated, its still an extremely effective way to reach your customers, especially the older demographic.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:


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


Lets 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 are on the move with poster advertising.


Advertise your services within a local directory (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 newspaper or magazine print ads placed in a specific category. A cheaper alternative to the other ad formats, however, they contain less information.

Display Advertising

Text, images or sometimes both creatives. They can be placed anywhere within your chosen publication and tailored to your preferred size. They are more expensive than classified ads but will enable you to reach a wider audience.


A paid ad article featuring business-related content – such as your products and services. They are a great way of improving your visibility and helping you to build trust with the publications readers.
