Is Print Media Dead?

For the past couple years, with the push towards more digital media, people have been saying that print is dead. It might not be as popular as it had used to have been, but print will never disappear. Print is a tangible piece of media that consumer can interact with and is kind of like a traveling salesman. It allows for people to be informed about events, sales, up and coming launches, and much more. People do not need to be connected to WiFi in order to receive the message that is being projected. Next to that print is a very effective media. This is because with most of the promotions that are being sent through e-mail most consumers either delete it or mark it as spam. They aren’t even reading the content that is being created. Without the use of the internet, digital media is dead, print still is sufficient. Print media can also be used in consumers daily lives. This can be done through the use of direct mail use it can include magnets, a card to fit in a wallet, or even a notepad with the companies logo on each page. Print media has been around forever, as it might have gone down a bit in this generation it will never fully go away. Here are a few examples of print media still being used today:
