Let reader behavior develop your E-paper

By Ninna Lauridsen | Sep 07 2015 | Insights

In cooperation with media companies all around Europe, Visiolink and Visiolab every half year conducts a survey among thousands of readers who access newspapers on their smartphones and tablets.

The purpose of these extensive user surveys is to track important behavior and preference tendencies among E-paper readers. In the latest survey, data was collected via interstitials within 9 different newspapers in a total of five European countries. Key reader behavior trends from the latest report include:


  1. As many as 39% (up from 24%) of our more than 8.000 respondents now consider the e-paper their primary news source

  2. The importance the printed newspaper is slowly declining among the e-paper readers

  3. There has been close to no deviation in the profound appreciation of availability among readers

  4. A lot of the resistance towards new, dynamic ads appears to be almost perfectly correlated with age.
