New Research: Newspaper Media Drive Vehicle Sales

Newspapers Canada has launched new research highlighting the power of newspapers in print and digital in selling new vehicles in Canada.

Individually, each newspaper medium performs impressively: with print newspapers (#1 or #2 at each stage out of 11 media) and newspaper websites (#3 or #4).
