Do Classified Ads in Phoenix, AZ Work?

Turn to the classifieds in The Arizona Republic or Phoenix New Times and you’ll see everything from puppies for sale to Phoenix rentals to help wanted ads. While classified ads are inexpensive to run, anywhere from $10 to $55 per ad depending on frequency and publication date, your budget for local advertising in Phoenix, AZ is best spent elsewhere. Daily newspaper circulation decreased 11% for weekdays and 10% for Sundays in 2017 (the lowest since 1945). The health of the newspaper advertising industry continues to decline with an audience that skews older than most media platforms and a service unable to provide the targeted messaging required to reach the specific consumers most likely to frequent your business.
