proposal to "reinstate the public notification requirement for print and include the option of electronic distribution." Luckily, the Advocate was able to decipher the original proposed amendment and work to get it changed.

newspapers in print or online. Ninety-one percent of voters who contributed money to a campaign read online or print newspapers. "Cutting across party affiliations and age groups, it's clear that newspapers and their digital platforms provide a superior medium for advertising that supports election campaigns and drives awareness of the issues," said Caroline Little, NAA president and CEO. "Whether measuring perceptions of trust and reliability or use of the medium's digital and mobile platforms, newspapers have a clear advantage in reaching and motivating those highly likely to vote. Campaigns and advocates seeking effective advertising to reach their target audiences need look no further than the local newspaper." Key findings of the Moore Information study include: Eighty-six percent of voters who cast ballots in the last local election read newspapers in print or online, with levels of engagement holding consistent among voters identifying as Republican, Democratic or Independent...

Defense of free speech can be unsavory By Peter Scheer First Amendment Coalition Why is it that the First Amendment Coalition, like other organizations that defend freedom of speech, is so often aligned in support of seriously unsavory characters? Just last week FAC filed an amicus brief in the US Supreme Court in support of a local politician and serial liar (no redundancy intended) who claimed to have served in the Marines (a lie) and to have been awarded the nation's highest military honor for heroism in combat (another lie). He has been prosecuted under the federal "Stolen Valor Act" for the speech-crime of claiming falsely to have received the Congressional Medal of Honor. (United States v. Alvarez). In still other recent Supreme Court appeals, FAC has filed First Amendment amicus briefs in support of: -persons who make and sell videos of the torturing of small animals (United States v. Stevens): -hate-filled homophobes who picket near funerals for US servicemen, carrying signs...

serves as a vital check on democracy's excesses. These include the majority's impulse to validate its own views by invalidating — through censorship-views that it fears or dislikes. The temptation is always great to carve out exceptions to freedom of speech for expression that is so hateful and offensive as to have zero social value. After all, so-called "hate speech" is barred to varying degrees in most liberal democracies (including, for example, France, Canada, Germany, Great Britain and Australia). The United States is the notable exception-and we must continue to be. Hate speech needs constitutional protection not because bigoted rants, lies and snuff videos deserve an audience-they don't-but because speech having no social value can't be proscribed without also suppressing speech that does have social value. Even more than we dislike hate speech we fear a government that has the power to decide what speech will be heard and what speech will be silenced. Constitutional safeguar...

level, create a customer experience that is not only positive but also memorable, and not only manageable but also successful. These four tactics will send you on your way. While it would be a logistical nightmare to staff and plan for 500 redemptions and receive 5,000, it would be equally nightmarish to staff and plan for 500 redemptions and only get 50. That's why it's important to use your email lists and social media channels to pre- promote the deal. This step is especially important if you're using a lesser-known provider with a smaller subscriber base. For tracking purposes, you'll want to capture three pieces of information: the coupon usage itself, whether the user was a first- time customer, and the total amount spent in addition to the coupon. Capture the first two pieces at the point of sale and the third piece through your sales records. For marketing and engagement purposes, capturing information like email addresses and phone numbers can be your chance to cement relat...

Non-responders to both the value and discount emails are likely deal seekers who have no intention of visiting your business without a deep discount, or customers who don't want to be reached by your brand through email. Either way, they're not your ideal customers. If they remain unresponsive to your emails for six months, remove them from your list. Some customers may be more comfortable interacting with your business via social channels, so develop a plan to promote your deal through these channels as well. Design special signage or nifty takeaway cards with your business' Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare contact information, and encourage customers to like you, follow you, and check in. Consider offering exclusive updates and rewards through your favorite social networks. With variables that are innumerable and often hard to quantify, creating a successful daily deal can be overwhelming and confusing. It can be daunting to not only reach a larger pool of customers who need an e...

Its flagship newspaper is the Orange County Register. The company emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April 2010 and is now controlled by hedge funds, which have been trying to sells its assets. A deal to sell its more than 100 daily and weekly newspapers to the Dean Singelton-led MediaNews Group fell through last year reportedly because of problems obtaining financing. Freedom sold its two New Mexico daily newspapers in February to Clovis Media Inc. The company also recently sold its eight television stations to Sinclair Broadcasting group for a reported $385 million. The company's financial problems, the Journal reported, date back to 2004 when divisions in the family of deceased founder J.C. Hoiles led to a deal in which private-equity firms Blackstone Group and Providence Equity Partners acquired a 40 percent stake in Freedom for about $460 million. Freedom remained under the family's control and allowed some family members to cash out but the debt burden sent the company into...

While we have been successful in staving off most of these bills, newspapers and open government advocates have been outnumbered consistently in those fights. With government and private entities looking for ways to save money, we expect the assaults to continue next session. Press associations around the country have fought similar battles and have mostly been successful in persuading legislators to do what is in the best public interest on this issue. We would hate to see Texas be the first state to lose this fight. While we understand that budgets are extremely tight, the combination of revenue and open government issues embodied by the public notice issue make it extremely important to newspapers. Please send your pledge today to help us fight this battle to kwhalen@tdna.ora and we will send you an invoice.

2010, the last number reported by the Newspaper Association of America. Newsrooms have been slashed, along with other newspaper departments. Printed products have become smaller and thinner. "The search for a new revenue model to revive the newspaper industry is making only halting progress," says a report issued in March by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism. Pew conducted a study of 38 newspapers from six companies that provided highly granular data about digital revenue and sales efforts. "In general," the report said, "the shift to replace losses in print ad revenue with new digital revenue is taking longer and proving more difficult than executives want, and at the current rate most newspapers continue to contract with alarming speed." Newspapers making dramatic internal changes are faring better than those that aren't, the report said, adding that the steps these papers are taking could provide signs of a path forward. "Cultural inertia is a major f...

advertising revenue, but the report added, "so far it amounts to very little." •"The industry is inhibited by several obstacles that executives themselves candidly acknowledge. One involves the difficulty of changing the behavior of people trained in the ways of a mature and monopolistic industry... One pervasive feeling is that 15 years into the digital transition, executives feel they are in the early stages of figuring out how to succeed," the report said. The bottom line? The report details an industry that hasn't moved as quickly or as far as it needs to in embracing a business model to replace its once-thriving legacy model. Personally, I had a good friend tell me that his newspaper company has determined it has five years or less to convert its business model to one that is earning 40 percent of its revenues from digital sources. To reach that goal, radical changes will need to be made, in both corporate culture and training. With the Great Recession ending, the worst of the ...

devoted to targeting Hispanics accounts for roughly one-third of overall revenue growth. Companies that devote more marketing resources to targeting Hispanics saw higher revenue growth, on average, than companies that did not make Hispanic marketing a high priority. The study identified a number of CPG companies and CPG-based retailers as "best in class" for their substantial Hispanic marketing efforts, including Coca-Cola, General Mills, Ralcorp, Groupe Danone, Nestle, Walmart, and Walgreens. The AHAA study also noted a number of factors that make Hispanics desirable marketing targets for CPG companies and advertisers in general, including larger households (at an average 3.8 individuals per household, compared to 2.5 for non-Hispanic households) and a higher household formation rate than the general population. Together, these facts mean that Hispanic household expenditures for food are predicted to grow at an annual rate of 5.7 percent over the next decade, according to Credit Su...

Recognizing that we are in a long-term fight to keep newspaper public notice against a myriad of opponents is why the TDNA/TPA Legislative Advisory Committee has adopted a new strategy to be more aggressive on this issue. Part of that involves hiring the Sedgwick law firm in Austin to help us concentrate more resources on the public notice issue. You received a letter earlier this year detailing our efforts and asking you to contribute to help us with this fight. If you haven't already done so, please consider contributing a small portion of your public notice revenue to both protect the public's right to know and this revenue stream for newspapers. Please contact Ken Whalen if you have any questions about what other newspapers have contributed to determine what would be your fair share.

price, a 10 percent operating profit margin, or even a couple of points lower, is not unattractive. Some industries don't hope to achieve 8 to 10 percent margins in the best of times, and here are newspapers reaping them in what for them has been the worst of times. Back when newspaper margins were soaring, acquisition prices were also high as measured by multiples of revenue or cash profit (so-called EBITDA, or earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) or average daily circulation unit. For example, a newspaper's sales price back then might be equal to one-and-a-half to two times its annual revenue (or 13 to 15 times its annual cash profit), or $1,000 to $1,500 per unit of average daily circulation — a week's total circulation divided by publishing days. These were typical ranges of the multiples back then, although some individual sales could be higher or lower. Now that most newspaper profits are down by half or more, it is understandable that their valuations...
