Ameya Joshi is a Project Manager at a reputed IT services company in Mumbai used Newspaper as an advertising medium for the sale of his individual property located in Mumbai itself. His requirement was more for private reasons rather than for any business purposes. He needed to sell his Andheri, Mumbai flat and selected Newspaper as his medium to reach out to prospective & potential buyers without the help of brokers. This was an urgent requirement for him and he had placed his adverts almost more than 2 years ago.
His experience with Newspaper advertising and the end results of the same have been summarized in this particular Case Study. The insights provided Mr. Joshi has enabled us to know about how newspaper advertising is one of the best and most hassle free mediums to attract property buyers.
Q. Could you please tell us something about yourself?
A. Well, I am currently working in the IT sector as a Project Manager at LearningMate in Mumbai, Maharashtra. But the requirement I had was more personal than professional. I needed to sell my Andheri flat as soon as possible and move into a new place of my choice.
Q. What made you take the decision to choose Newspaper as your medium of advertisement?
A. The reason I felt the need to advertise in a newspaper is due to its reach, regionally as well as nationally and the genuineness of prospective buyers. All my family and friends have always opted for newspapers as a medium to reach out to genuine buyers and even sellers when it comes to serious transactions like Property, Matrimony and all. Hence, this induced my faith in newspaper advertising which in turn led me to advertise in Newspaper
Q. Did you have any specific target audience in mind while advertising in the newspaper?
A. To be honest, I barely had any specific target audience in mind, simply because this was more of an individual and personal transaction rather than a business deal. All I preferred was to have genuine and legal buyers for my property as I simply wanted to stay away from any unnecessary trouble or issues.
Q. How effective did Newspaper advertising prove for your Property Sale? If required would you use newspaper as an advertising medium again?
A. In my opinion, Newspaper as a medium provides a Haven for Property selling and buying. I think Newspapers provide a simple solution for such individual Property Deals. All you have to do is give an ad in a preferred newspaper and relax, while waiting for the responses. Given an opportunity or if required I would surely use Newspaper as a medium to advertise in with no qualms.
Q. Why did you go for an online portal such as releaseMyAd to book your newspaper ad?
