The Economist seeks college students to boost its digital base
The Economist is going “back 2 school” with its new digital ad campaign targeting college students.
“An effort that is to begin on Monday will carry the theme ‘Dare 2 Go Deep With The Economist’ — the numeral, presumably, echoing how so many members of the intended audience use shorthand when they communicate online and on mobile devices,” Stuart Elliott reported Tuesday for The New York Times. “Indeed, digital media is the primary way that The Economist and its new advertising agency intend to disseminate the campaign, which has a budget of just under $1 million. The ads will urge turning to The Economist for a deeper, more thorough understanding of what goes on in the world.”
Near the end of the article, Elliott reported circulation figures for The Economist that he obtained from Economist Group Managing Director Paul Rossi:
Total worldwide circulation: 1,558,119
Worldwide print circulation: 1,455,261
Worldwide digital circulation: 102,858
Total North America circulation: 897,849
North America print circulation: 831,978
North America digital circulation: 65,871
