Electronic Newsstand Launches Campaign


Online magazine retailer Electronic Newsstand, Washington, DC, launched a pay-per-transaction banner campaign late last month marking the company's first major online effort beyond its site at www.enews.com.


The campaign, created by interactive agency Thinking Media, New York, consists of banner ads on various unnamed sites targeting interests such as sports, leisure and money. Consumers can subscribe to magazines through the ads without going to Electronic Newsstand's Web site.


A spokesman for the Electronic Newsstand said the goal of the campaign is to "simply sell magazines and build sales even if it is at the expense of building traffic."


"This campaign will do what the Web does best," said Don Westrich, director of business development for Thinking Media. "It lets people choose the experience and qualify themselves."
