NYNPA's CANNY, Daily Connection networks to become the New York Daily Impact
April 28, 2017
The New York News Publishers Association is pleased to announce a new classified advertising network that aims to give clients an effective, affordable way to advertise statewide with the short-term frequency only daily newspapers can offer.
The New York Daily Impact, which replaces the CANNY and Daily Connection networks, allows clients to place multi-day line ads in 56 papers across New York State with a single order starting at just $11.16 per paper.
Ads in the New York Daily Impact run 5 days in 39 daily papers and 1 day in 17 weekly publications over the period of one week, reaching over 1.4 million readers statewide each day with just one insertion.
Additionally, advertisers can save 10, 15, 20 or 25% on multi-week insertions, and each order includes title bolding and a Tweet from one of NYNPA’s Twitter accounts – both premium add-ons in previous networks.
As with all NYNPA advertising networks, the New York Daily Impact can be purchased through any of its participating newspapers, providing them with a new source of revenue while also supporting the programs and services offered by the association.
For more information on the New York Daily Impact and NYNPA’s other advertising services, please contact Don Ferlazzo, Director of Advertising at (518) 449-1667 ext. 700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
