Simplifying Digital Service Selling for BIG PROFITS!
Recorded at the Key Executives Mega-Conference
A recording (plus all downloads and slides) of Mike Blinder's session at the Key Executives Mega-Conference on "Simplifying Digital Service Selling for BIG PROFITS!" now is available for viewing at no cost.
Blinder says many media companies are launching separate digital agencies that offer marketing solutions (beyond inches and banners) to their advertisers. However, this program focuses on successful newspapers that have chosen not to staff up heavily with separate digital sales teams ... or pay hefty vendor fees for outsourced services. Instead, the case studies featured in this session focus on innovative, profitable, turnkey ways to expand product offerings, sold by the legacy sales teams!
This session features:
- Jerry Healey, publisher and owner, Colorado Community Media, Highlands Ranch, Colo.
- Matt Lohrmann, classified advertising manager, Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, Walla Walla, Wash.
- Terry Ward, chief operating officer, KPC Media Group, Fort Wayne, Ind.
- Katie Wilson, digital advertising director, The Quad-City Times, Davenport, Iowa
Hear about case studies on:
- Ways to infuse your advertisers' social media content for big profits.
- How newspapers can cost-effectively sell native (sponsored) content, to local advertisers, with the legacy reps.
- Offering mobile sites without needing a separate digital sales force.
- How online contests can build your profits & social footprint, for huge returns.
View this webinar to gain actionable ideas and downloads of all sales-support materials used "on the street," so you can implement these concepts in your local market, immediately!

Question: A TMC product is not a paid product. When a resident does not receive it, they are not likely to register a complaint. Advertisers in the TMC product want some level of comfort that the product is actually being delivered. We would like to negotiate with the TMC carriers an additional contract fee if the contractor will download an app on his/her smartphone that will confirm when he/she finishes delivering the TMC product. Does this do any harm to independent contractor status?More
