Let’s be honest: Printing a school newspaper a few decades ago was much more complicated than now for those who were in charge. Nowadays, you have access to templates from printers online, which makes it so much easier to position the texts and advertising. In the end, with one click of a mouse, it gets printed. But it is not just simpler. It also remains one of the best ways to communicate inside a school. Here is what you need to know in school newspapers.
Printing Large Quantities at Low Costs
Those who thought that newspaper print was simply going to disappear were wrong. Although many of the large media groups have moved on to the internet, the world of the newspaper has gained many new clients in various industries. They were always popular in schools, though, and are still part of most of them. That is partly due to the fact that they can use a newspaper template that the editorial team will fill from anywhere they may be (school, home, or even on holidays). They can receive the articles from their journalists and also the ads from their sales department and put it all together easily before sending it out to the printer.
But there is no doubt that one of the most important elements that remains true to this day and which attracts schools is the fact that they can reach a large audience at a relatively low cost. This is particularly true in major schools, where thousands of newspapers have to be printed weekly in order to provide information about everything that is going on, on campus, during the coming days.
A Great Way for the Students School Council to fill Their Till
Those who have to run a students school council know that they need to find as many ways as possible in order to finance their various activities. Sending out their members to sell chocolate is certainly “sweet” but not the fastest way to accumulate a large sum. However, newspaper printing is definitely one of the tools that can fill up the students rapidly and constantly.
It is a well-known fact that all the businesses around a school are competing to get their attention and turn every student into a customer. By taking an ad inside the school paper, they can communicate their message easily to each one, all the while giving themselves a good image in front of them since they are helping to create more activities in school by doing so. There is no other tool for a student council to help them gain as much money as by selling ads in the school newspaper. And that makes it more relevant than ever.
Also a Great Tool for the School Itself
Encouraging students to take part in campus life is something all schools want. That is why those in charge love the school newspapers. Centered around the student’s life, it brings everyone together, helping the school’s image inside, with its own students, but also outside, so that it can get more young men and women to join every year.
