    What is the difference between circulation and readership in Newspaper ?


    Newspaper circulation is number of copies printed whereas Readership is number of people who read it. So a single Newspaper in a household is read by the entire family. 

    Unless specific data is available, one can assume readership of a Newspaper to be 3 times that of its circulation. 


    I am about to confirm my ad in a Newspaper. What all I should be aware of at this stage?

    1. Publication reserves the right to put multiple jackets,flaps/any other competitors ad on the same or facing page
    2. Shared rate might change after the ad is submitted as Newspapers operate brand specific and category specific rates
