‘Know our Customer’ is a very special initiative for releaseMyAd. It is one of the favourite sections of our entire team. This is simply because, “Know our Customer” helps us solve issues faced by our clients, make amends in our system, highlight the strengths and features of a medium of advertising, improve our services and above all communicate on one-to-one basis with our customers. Through this section we understand our customers and attempt to convey that how newspaper as a medium has aided their purpose or need for advertising.
Cloud 9 is a renowned organisation of Kolkata which has accepted the traditional medium of advertising through newspapers for reasons of reliability. Though they have opted for an online portal to release their advertisement, they consider newspapers as the most reliable source of advertising. According to Jayanta Sarkar, Assistant Manager at Cloud 9, Newspapers provide a trustworthy source of providing information and advertising which attracts customers and genuine responses. He explains further in the following Study on Newspaper Advertising.
Q. Can you please describe the nature of your business?
A. Cloud 9 has a number of retailventures across Kolkata, basically we have established ourselves as a renowned Retail Chain of Kolkata. Our different ventures include Ad Agency, Restaurants, Online Marketing, Beauty Parlours. We create and advertise for various clients in newspapers, magazines, OOH, hoardings etc.
Q. What persuaded you to advertise your retail initiatives?
A. We mainly advertise for our clients but we also promote our own retail chain or ventures. We wanted to announce the launch of our new restaurant and parlour and promotion is the only way to attract attention of the customers as well as get clients.
Q. Who was your target audience?
A. Our restaurant and parlour was launched in South Kolkata in posh localities where the residents are financially well-off and can afford certain added luxuries in life. The ad was mainly to reach out to the upper middle class and upper class people, who invest quite a hefty amount of money on beauty treatments and outings.
We advertised our Ad agency to attract the small and medium sized organisations who need an advertising guide to help them in promoting themselves through different advertising mediums.
Q. How effective is newspaper advertising for your business/businesses? Will continue to invest in the same?
A. Newspaper advertising being a tried and tested advertising medium, has helped us a lot in getting genuine and earnest customers. In Kolkata newspapers are a necessity and people like staying updated about everyday events and incidents taking place in the city and across the country. Maintaining a knowledge base is essential for them in areas such as politics, entertainment, hangout places in and around the city, shopping destinations as well as personal grooming. Newspapers provide all the information on such topics establishing itself as a complete package as well as a reliable medium and source of advertising and info. Hence newspaper advertising is highly effective.
We advertise in newspapers even now mainly for our clients and will continue to do so, if not to promote ourselves then at least for our clients.
Q. What made you select an online portal such as releaseMyAd for booking newspaper ads?
A. Nowadays most of the work is done online and the world is online all the time, either for professional or personal work. The use of online newspaper ad booking agencies makes it easier to save time and effort of going outside to third party agents and consulting them for getting newspaper ads released. Also not all newspapers have tie-ups with small individual agents; hence the charges are never fixed. They charge differently for different newspapers without any account for it.
But online newspaper ads booking agencies get direct rates from the newspaper houses and we pay for the proper and regular services provided by them and also for the efforts and time we save. It just takes a couple of minutes to book the entire ad and also to complete the payment
through their planned and organised online payment options. The systematic website makes it very easy to rely on the authenticity of the website and its validation.
Q. How was your booking experience with releaseMyAd?
A. Well, as I said before the booking process is very easy and reliable. The Customer Care Services are quite good and helpful. The resolution time of problems faced while booking the advertisements, is absolutely minimal. ReleaseMyAd has helped save a lot of time and saved us
from a lot of hassles fac
ed earlier while booking ad spaces in newspapers.
