New Media Age shuts print edition- goes online only

Centaur Media is shutting down the print edition of New Media Age – the market leading weekly magazine for the UK digital marketing industry. Launched as a newsletter in 1995, NMA went on to become a weekly magazine in 1998, and its annual NMA Awards are now a highlight of the UK digital marketing calendar.

The move comes as part of a wider cost-cutting drive at Centaur, which will also see Design Week go online only. The last editions of New Media Age and Design Week will go on sale this week. However, both brands will continue to exist online and the New Media Age name will also be used on a monthly digital marketing supplement in Marketing Week.

Consumers shun high street for internet deals

New research from New Media Age and Lightspeed Research has found that 36% of British shoppers plan to shop more online and less in stores during the coming year. 89% of those polled believe that prices are lower online with 68% of shoppers also thinking that online shopping is cheaper than a trip to the high street when other costs such as petrol, parking and travel are taken into account. Overall, shoppers thought online was better for range of products (by 81%), price (89%), ease of finding items (84%), convenience (78%) and price comparison (95%). Traditional retail however was preferred for customer service (70%) and lack of waiting time (70%). New Media Age hypothesised that the coming year could see some traditional retailers closing their bricks and mortar stores to become online-only businesses.
