How readers engage with Living

Consumer research prior to launch revealed that Living had strong overall appeal with Herald on Sunday’s core reader segments – they liked its fresh and vibrant approach and found it full of interesting and relevant content.

What does this mean for advertisers?

Living enables you to reach a large audience of relaxed Sunday readers on a day they want to shop and our APN Media Engagement study showed that mediums that offer serendipitous advertising are more likely to trigger spontaneous purchase. Living offers advertising positions alongside content not found in the rest of the newspaper.
