2016 re­port to read­ers

The best and busiest year in Post his­tory

Richmond Hill Post - - News - by Lorne Lon­don

Like most Cana­di­ans, we at Post have spent the last few weeks go­ing over the books for tax sea­son.

Al­though the me­dia has been awash in sto­ries about the demise of print, we are proud to say that last year we achieved a 3.8 per cent in­crease in ad sales and a more than four per cent in­crease in page counts.

In the past year, postc­ity.com, our web­site, has de­liv­ered well over 2 mil­lion pageviews; we have 8,000 Twit­ter fol­low­ers; and in our web edi­tor’s words, we are killin’ it on In­sta­gram.

You may be ask­ing your­self what we are do­ing with this ad­di­tional rev­enue. We have just fin­ished sev­eral En­vi­ron­ics fo­cus groups with lo­cal res­i­dents and com­mis­sioned a read­er­ship study by Ip­sos-Reid in which they will ask hun­dreds of you what you think we can do bet­ter. Also, we’ve hired an ad­di­tional news edi­tor and an as­sis­tant web edi­tor to bol­ster our amaz­ing team.

I’d per­son­ally like to thank the ded­i­cated edi­tors, pho­tog­ra­phers, ac­count man­agers and de­sign­ers who work tire­lessly to bring you your Post ev­ery month, and of course most im­por­tantly we want to ac­knowl­edge you, our read­ers and ad­ver­tis­ers who made the past year the best and busiest in Post City his­tory. Thanks for al­ways say­ing you saw it in the Post.
