Winner:  Making The Economist a global must-read, The Economist

The Economist, along with the rest of the newspaper and magazine industry, was facing the challenge of declining readership, but it also had the problem of keeping ahead in a market that was experiencing growing numbers of media channels, whose mantras were news “immediacy”.

In response, The Economist repositioned as a supplementary rather than a substitute read. The Economist’s targetarchetypal reader is best described in terms of a mindset, whether they reside in Birmingham, Boston or Bangalore. They are curious and open-minded, ask “why” as well as “what” and they thrive on knowledge and stimulation, craving the freedom of ideas. Therefore The Economist’s new positioning was “Global understanding: a must-read for smart people around the world”.

Before the global relaunch, growth averaged 5% per year; post-launch, growth accelerated to 10%. Over the three-year global campaign, The Economist’s worldwide circulation has increased by 29% – a circulation increase of 297,180 to over 1.3 million.

In the UK, despite a declining news market, The Economist’s circulation increased 18% during the campaign period. Within Europe circulation rose by 14% and North America represents a huge market opportunity. Despite competitive titles’ declining circulations (reducing by 6%), The Economist’s has increased by 43%. And its worldwide circulation has doubled in ten years from 654,000 in 1997 to more than 1.3 million in 2007.
