Long Island Press Increases Automotive Sales with AdPerfect’s Integrated Media Solution
Long Island Press increases incremental revenue and claims their local automotive market with the launch of AdPerfect’s integrated media solution, Easy Find Autos.

AdPerfect, a leader in dynamic advertising solutions, launches Long Island Press, an award winning weekly Long Island, NY newspaper, on their integrated media solution, Easy Find Autos.

In today’s digital media landscape, where newspaper publications have seen decreases in print advertising expenditures, Steven McKenna, General Manager at the Long Island Press notes, “A print product at this point in time has to give people multiple touch points.” And that’s just what McKenna saw in AdPerfect’s Easy Find Autos solution, which integrates print, online, mobile and social media.

Steve Kump, AdPerfect President & CTO, explains, “This is not just another classified ad. This is truly is an integrated media solution. And, with our new Facebook app it’s getting inventory in the social media arena for added distribution.”

Branded as the Long Island Press Pre-Owned, McKenna is having no trouble selling to automotive dealers in a market saturated by print-only competitors. McKenna states, “Our advertisers love it!”

Separating themselves from the competition with an integrated media solution, the Long Island Press is significantly increasing used car ad sales, generating an additional revenue stream. “In the first week we had an initial 20% increase in incremental revenue,” McKenna says.

Kump explains, “Using the reporting metrics, Long Island Press’ sales team is now equipped with the numbers need to sell to new dealers and retain existing ones. Plus, their dealers can see how well their ad campaign is performing and make inventory adjustments accordingly.”

AdPerfect is not only driving incremental revenue for Long Island Press, they are saving time and costs by streamlining production. “My creative department’s resources are not drained at all. AdPerfect handles everything from inventory selection to pagination. It is instantly done. And now advertisers are doing it themselves, bringing it to another level,” McKenna explains.

Being easy-to-implement as well means publishers, like Long Island Press, can start generating additional revenue streams quickly. Commenting on the implementation McKenna says, “It was very easy. This is truly a turnkey solution.”

McKenna adds, “Its great when you find a company like AdPerfect that understands, ‘we make more money if you do.’ That builds a truly great partnership.”

AdPerfect is attending NAA’s mediaXchange conference March 25 - 28, 2011. Contact sales@adperfect.com to arrange a demo on Easy Find Autos or any other AdPerfect advertising solution while at the conference.
