Third Test of Free-standing Insert Ads to Occur in 54 U.S. Cities

The United Church of God will conduct its third and final test of full-page literature advertisements in the coupon sections of U.S. Sunday newspapers on November 1, 2015.God Exist

The first two tests (May 17 and August 9, 2015) provided critical cost and cost-per-response data. We expect this additional test will generate conclusive statistical information on conducting a rollout into numerous other cities in 2016. In this latest effort we will test four (4) new ads featuring the following popular Bible study aids: Does God Exist?, What Happens After Death?, Why Does God Allow Suffering? and Are We Living in the Time of the End?

A total circulation of 2,440,000 literature ads will occur in the following 54 cities/counties on Sunday, November 1:

  • Alliance, OH
  • Ashland, OH
  • Bay St. Louis, MS
  • Bethel, OH

  1. Were you doing this by territory? It looks like this covers the Eastern half of the USA.

    • Jeannette, each test has been to a slightly different area. You’re right, this one is primarily the mid-west and east.

  2. Were the first two test results encouraging, and was useful information gleaned from the campaigns?

    • Bill, the first test gave us reasonable results, but not as good as we desired. The second test was a nice improvement on the first, with CPRs approaching our acceptable range. This third test we pray will build upon that. Then, we can determine the best regions and strategies to use going forward with larger circulation figures.

  3. This may sound outlandish, but for places like eastern Zambia, the ucg resources, which are in high demand because of our localized “Beyond Today” radio program, would achieve greater impact in the local language. With permission, I can translate a few, one by one, for free. Then, is the goal on how many go out or how much impact they have?
