Sellers-- The Economist seems to mainly target Gen-X and millennials with a slight male skew. It has traditionally advertised through national TV and digital display ads, but it has cut TV spending to make room for additional digital ads. The increase in digital spend and emphasis on online readers indicates it may be targeting a slightly younger audience and digital ads must provide a better marketing ROI. Reach out soon offering digital display ad space to secure last-minute campaign ad dollars.
Agency & martech readers-- As you know, new CMOs commonly review their new company's agency roster, and to the best of our knowledge The Economist has not made any changes sine Miller's hire.
