How To Distribute A Newspaper

Distributing Your Newspaper

Many people ask how to distribute their newspaper once they print and it’s actually very easy...simply ask people and businesses to carry it!  You will be amazed at how many will, especially since it’s free to them and their clients. Restaurants, Hair Salons, Medical Offices, Car Washes -- even libraries -- and the list goes on as great places to distribute your newspaper.

The next important issue is how prominent your paper is displayed and how easy is it for customers to see and take your newspaper. Find and put your newspapers in the most visible spot you can in each location. Many of our clients use counter or floor stands to help visibility.

This product is very exciting for you and to those who know you. Let people help you distribute your newspapers.

Canvassing neighborhoods is a great way to get your name and message in front of people. Churches often get up to 60% of their newspapers out this way.

Also, another effective means of distributing your newspapers is to find friendly businesses and restaurants that will accept your newspapers. Any place where there is a waiting room is ideal. People often look for something to read while they are waiting. If you chose a good ‘niche,’ many of these businesses would be very pleased to accept your paper for their customers to enjoy while they are waiting.

Restaurants are the best, we’ve found, along with, interestingly, the library. Here is a list of places you may want to consider distributing your newspapers:

  • Doctor’s and Dentist’s Offices
  • Libraries
  • Coffee Shops
  • Waiting Rooms of every sort
  • Retail Stores with Community Bulletin Boards
  • Hospitals
  • Convenience Stores
  • Gas Stations
  • Restaurants
  • Apartment Building Offices (especially if they don’t allow distribution of papers door to door. They often will allow them in the office).
  • Apartment Complexes – Door to Door
  • Neighborhoods – Door to Door

Be careful to get the proper permissions. If they don’t allow them and you leave some anyway, odds are, they end up in the trash. Keep track of the rate your newspapers are taken. Some places may need more and other places less.
