What People Said
When people make important life decisions, new needs always arise.
•
•
•
Starting a career: At any given time a third of the Austin adult population plans to
look for a new job, new home or new vehicle.
Purchasing a home or car: Those who intend to purchase a new vehicle spend an
average of 6 months in the purchase funnel, while home searches take an average
of 3 months.
New life stages trigger consumer needs.
In our ongoing effort to learn more about advertisers and readers and meet the needs
of these life decisions, we solicited feedback from our readers. One of the important
pieces of feedback is that readers are passionate about content.
When asked about content:
•
•
68% of Sunday Statesman readers said they would spend more time with the
paper if it had more content
61% said they would be more satisfied with more pages and a bigger newspaper.

Marketplace: Real Estate
What People Said
After reviewing reader habits and feedback regarding content, we specifically asked about our current three
section approach around Automotive, Real Estate, and Jobs, and what they would think about a combined
section, that we call Marketplace.
The Statesman surveyed 400 people about the new Marketplace:
•
Over half the respondents prefer the new Marketplace concept and
over a third had no preference, resulting in over 85% of respondents
are open to or prefer the idea of Marketplace.
•
Specifically regarding Sunday, almost 40% of respondents preferred the
combined section and 36% had no preference.
When asked about combining sections to create a robust section,
they offered the following verbatim feedback:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Less sections to go through
The fewer sections the better
One stop shopping
Save paper
Even if I weren’t looking for a home or car, I would notice the content
as it would be in one section, other content might catch my eye
Good thing if it saves money and maintains or expands scope and
depth of content
Less clutter
Follows the concept of a “marketplace”
Prefer one substantial section as opposed to two thin sections
